In a healthcare environment, surface areas like table tops and arm caps are a critical design aspect of a given space – they can affect everything from an area’s safety and cleanability, to its aesthetics and comfort. Increasingly in the post-COVID era, surface finish selections are a top consideration for designers and facility planners when specifying products for healthcare.

 

At Stance, we are proud to offer Corian® Solid Surface finish options across many of our product categories. This material is the original solid surface offering in the marketplace and remains the go-to solid surface selection for healthcare furniture, and for good reasons: Corian® Solid Surface is a virtually maintenance-free finish selection that is highly customizable, easy-to-clean and withstands the test of time.

 

Developed in the 1970s, Corian® Solid Surface is composed of resins, epoxies, natural limestone and pigments, which combine to form a non-porous surface that doesn’t require sealing or polishing. The material was originally designed to be an attractive alternative to the limited countertop options available decades ago – and since then, it has evolved to continually offer a variety of colors and patterns that make healthcare application seamless. For example, Stance offers two Solid Surface offerings, Beech Nuwood and Mahogany Nuwood, which resemble wood – and help support a more biophilic, residential-feeling space that encourages healing with this softer aesthetic.

 

“Corian® Solid Surface is the gold standard for healthcare designers,” said Suzanne Fawley, Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Interior Designer. “Its characteristics check every box for healthcare application: durable and able to withstand wear, highly cleanable, and extremely customizable – it’s a great investment for any healthcare environment.”

 

Corian® Solid Surface is:

  • Easy-to-clean and maintain.
  • When properly cleaned, Corian® is a hygienic surface and does not support the growth of mold and mildew.
  • A nonporous surface with a smooth, seamless appearance.
  • Extremely durable and long-lasting, standing up to hard knocks in high-traffic environments that can easily damage other surfaces, such as drywall and laminate.
  • Easily renewed and repaired.
  • Flexible.
  • GREENGUARD Certified® as a low VOC-emitting material
  • Stain resistant
  • Slip resistant
  • Extensive color choice available, others on demand

Corian® Solid Surface is offered as an option on several of Stance’s product lines, including the tops on the Olsen Overbed Table, and arm cap options for: Jensen Lounge Seating, nearly all of our occasional tables for general healthcare, three of our metal seating collections (Legend, Vista II, Oasis), and several of our lounge seating products (Cassia, Carson, Huxley, Verity, Oasis Glider).

 

 

Coming Soon: Stay tuned for the Spry Seating Collection, an exciting new release arriving next week which features Solid Surface on the arm caps and also includes connecting tables made with the material.
