Simply put, Solid Surface (e.g. Corian®) is the logical choice for laboratories and hospitals. If you’re after hygiene, cleanliness and ease of maintenance – no other surface comes close.
Non-porous: Corian® is a non-porous surface, which allows for easy cleaning, disinfecting and decontamination. Spills are easy to sort out and nothing can seep into or under the counter.
Seam-free: Proper joining is critical in fabrication and installation. A smooth, continuous surface (no visible seams) means that there is no place for germs to lurk. It also means that there are no groove or grout lines where moisture can collect, leading to the growth of mould or mildew.
Sanitisation: Corian® is tough enough to withstand the chemical cleaning agents used to reduce Staphylococcus aureus and other strains of bacteria.
Design solutions: As Corian® can be thermoformed (bent and shaped) it can be used in a 100 different ways; from single vanities, to laboratory countertops with coved splashbacks, to interior cladding and even curved walls. The possibilities are endless – and hygienic.
Longevity: As surfaces go, Corian® is probably the most hard-working and hard-wearing solution. It will not peel or stain and any accidental nicks or scratches can be removed. Every few years the surface can be buffed and polished to ensure that it always looks and fantastic. In high-traffic, unrelenting, non-stop spaces like laboratories and hospitals it is important that the work surfaces can go the distance.
