International Surface Fabricators Association Launches Safe Solid Surface Education Initiative

The International Surface Fabricators Association launched its Safe Solid Surface campaign. The idea behind the educational initiative is to help make architects, designers, healthcare facility planners, consumers and all other surfacing specifiers aware of the safe, clean and hygienic properties of solid surface during this time when cleanliness is so critical to health.

These solid surface benches designed by ZGF Architects were fabricated by Rick Wing for Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland, Oregon, and illustrate using hygienic material doesn’t mean sacrificing design capability.

An article has been put together by ISFA outlining the extensive reasons this material is a strong fit for those wanting to help ensure safe, quality materials are used in healthcare applications, commercial kitchens, the hospitality industry and even residential kitchen and bath applications. Both a more in-depth article version, and briefer article version, can be downloaded and disseminated.
