Healthcare design’s first priority is to prevent infection. The surfaces you specify play a critical role in helping you create safer healthcare environments.
The nonporous certified hygienic properties of DuPont™ Corian® solid surface material can help healthcare architects and designers create spaces that, with proper cleaning, fit the needs of their installations.
