| New York, NY - August 11, 2021 | With the introduction of two new patterns, Wolf-Gordon extends its RAMPART® line of flexible, impact-resistant wall protection to now include PVC-free options constructed of an olefin composite material. The new RAMPART® Resolve™ line has been engineered to meet the demands of high-traffic areas, and is the result of a year-long development process that ensures these PVC-free alternatives maintain the same superior performance levels as the original RAMPART, which are on par with standard rigid sheet goods.
At Wolf-Gordon, we’ve made it a priority to offer PVC-free options in CLAIR® type II wallcovering and, now, RAMPART Resolve flexible wall protection. When RAMPART Resolve or CLAIR are coupled with Stronghold wall liner, the costly and, often, labor intensive problem of rough wall surfaces is solved sustainably.

RAMPART Resolve has Health Product Declarations and is listed in the Mindful Materials database, thanks in part to its 30% pre-consumer recycled content construction. Its surface is bleach cleanable and stands up to rigorous cleaning practices utilizing quaternary compounds and a variety of List N disinfectants that meet the EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
In addition to exceptional durability and cleanability, RAMPART Resolve offers straightforward installation, and is easily applied by a painting contractor. Additional trim and hardware are not required, and it can be railroaded below a chair rail for a continuous 27 linear yards.
When rough wall surfaces are a problem, RAMPART Resolve can be applied in conjunction with RAMPART Stronghold™ wall liner, a natural jute and gypsum substrate that covers irregular wall surfaces. No costly furring out of the wall is required, which can save days from the construction schedule.
RAMPART Resolve Patterns:
Inyo and Luxor—the first two RAMPART Resolve patterns—feature nature-inspired textures in a range of colorways that speak to modern interior trends.
Luxor: Durability is disguised in Luxor’s raw linen pattern, which combines light and dark contrasts for a unique dimensionality and softened visual effect. Warm and engaging tones like linen and oatmeal; earthy jute, hemp, and laurel; and flesh and sand shades are rounded out by richer hues like “Midnight” and “Aubergine”.
Inyo: This rhythmic woodgrain imbues high-traffic areas and commercial interiors with the warmth and personality of a residential space. Inyo is available in a range of neutrals that evoke popular light wood stains, as well deeper, nuanced tones like “Ebony” and “Walnut”. Inyo is printed with several layers of color and has a matte finish.
Compared to leading rigid sheet goods, RAMPART Resolve continues to provide the same high performance for Surface Abrasion, Hard Body Impact, and Surface Indentation, and comparable performance in Soft Body Impact testing. It exceeds the maximum capacity of a Scrape Adhesion test machine without incurring significant scratches or surface removal.
