The importance of selecting surfaces and materials that are appropriate to a space and help contributing towards a happy and healthy workspace cannot be overstated. Beloved by designers is the Staron Solid Surfaces range, a perfect surface solution for many applications in an office space.

Staron is composed of a natural and pure mineral derived from bauxite ore, then blended with an advanced pure acrylic resin, resulting in the world’s premium surface material. Staron Solid Surfaces is suitable for endless applications in commercial and residential projects – with its silk-like finish and coming in a range of over 80 colours, Staron is both the easy choice for serving both aesthetics and functionality.

Being non-porous in nature, no stain can penetrate the material of Staron, which means the surface is no only durable, but easy to maintain and keep clean. Joined with a special adhesive and sanded neatly, the entire Staron surface becomes one long and wide continuing surfaces with no open joins.

With these design benefits, when used in an office environment, Staron offers a clean and hygienic surface to fit any space. Office surfaces are designed to hold telephones, computers, food, let alone endless cups of tea and coffee – the hygienic properties of Staron means that the office will be a clean workspace and avoid cross contamination.

Staron’s non-porous design negates the natural growth of bacteria, which sets it apart from many other surfaces, while the non-staining nature of the surfaces also means that they’ll remain looking good for years, with no coffee rings or tea stains in sight.

Staron can be used to create anything from desks, to toilet partitions, bathroom vanities, tabletops, wall paneling, kitchenettes, furniture and can even clad an entire reception desk surfaces to create one continuous shell.
