Acrylic solid surface, also called acrylic stone, is indispensable when it comes to the choice of material for worktops, sinks and furniture facades in medical facilities. Acrylic stone products have great characteristics. They are seamless: whatever the size of the final piece, all its parts can be firmly joined together without visible seams or gaps. This greatly simplifies the cleaning and maintenance of medical worktops, surgical sinks, washbasins. Not the slightest gap is left in-between the final product parts for water or dirt to accumulate.
Well-known acrylic solid surface brands (e.g. Corian, Staron, Meganite) have the necessary hygiene certificates and are therefore widely used in medical institutions. Being non-porous and having virtually zero absorbency, acrylic stone is easy to clean. Any coloured liquids spilled on acrylic medical worktops can be wiped off with a damp cloth and disinfectant tissues. Even heavily stained acrylic worktops are easy to clean with soap and water. Dishwashing or antibacterial liquids can also be used. Such worktops are appreciated in hospitals and clinics.
Acrylic solid surfaces do not release chemical compounds into the environment. Even people who suffer from allergies can have such worktops in their close environment without the danger of being affected by volatile allergenic particles in the air. This great characteristic of acrylic stone makes it desirable in dental clinics, hospitals, health clinics, nurseries. Surgery departments are often equipped with surgical sinks and tables made of acrylic stone. Medical tool storage tanks, washbasins, socket blocks, waste drawers, bins and other necessary elements can be integrated into worktops from acrylic stone.
Other acrylic solid surface elements in medical institutions can include shower trays and walls, bathtubs, shelves, windowsills, cupboards.
