Beautiful surfaces that are kind to the environment

In any design with surfaces, the functionality and aesthetics are at the front of our minds – but there’s more to design than this. Staron surfaces kick all of these goals while also considering environmental sustainability.

Surface design is an inescapable part of retail, commercial and even residential design. While longevity, style and versatility need to be considered, the environmental impact of the surfaces we choose can’t be ignored. Thankfully, there’s Staron.

The surface solutions from Staron are composed of a safe mineral derived from natural bauxite ore and blended with pure acrylic resin, resulting in a surface material that’s as longlasting as it is stylish.

Staron surfaces are suitable for a nearly endless range of applications – from commercial or retail countertops, hospital surfaces, home kitchen benches and countless more. The virtually seamless finish of the product and the more than 90 colours to select from make Staron an easy choice no matter the project.

Stain-resistant and durable, the long surface life of Staron isn’t the only thing that makes these surfaces kind to the environment. When a project comes to an end, Staron can be reused and given new life. The existing surface can be taken from one application and recreated into a new project, extending the lifespan of the surface, creating less need for waste. The renewable and repairable nature of Staron also means that it will last longer and reduces the need of replacement as the surface can be rejuvenated through sanding.

Staron is non-toxic, creating a project space that is healthy for people, animals and the environment. These attributes have been recognised by Eco Specifier, awarding Staron with an approved listing.

Staron has also achieved both Greenguard and Greenguard Gold accreditation – meaning when you design with this versatile surface in a sensitive environment such a hospital or healthcare facility, you can rest assured that children, animals and the elderly will be safe and germ-free.

Staron’s care for environmental sustainability starts at square one, with the manufacturing process ensuring a minimal ecological footprint. With this in mind, the Staron manufacturing process adheres to both ISO 14001 and 50001, the international standards that specify requirements for effective environmental management systems and using energy most efficiently.

With all of this in mind, you can specify Staron Solid Surfaces to create an aesthetically beautiful project, with the peace of mind that you are creating a project with a long life, minimising the need for waste, and know that it was created while being kind to nature and our earth.
