When selecting surfaces and materials for projects such as healthcare and education, consideration needs to be made in the properties of the materials used so that they are suitable for sensitive individuals such as children, the sick or the elderly.

In addition to beauty and durability, the properties of Staron® Solid Surfaces have been recognised and certified for both Greenguard and Greenguard Gold accreditation, ensuring they’re safe for use in environments for sensitive individuals. This means that Staron® is recognised as a safe product for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. Staron’s range of surface solutions can be used as wall cladding, integrated basin and benchtop areas, nurse stations, doctor and vet consultation rooms, and more.
Additionally, Staron® is NSF51 Food Zone Contact Approved, which means a surface safe for food preparation – ideal in areas such as restaurants, cafes, or bars. Both nontoxic and aesthetically pleasing, Staron’s surfaces create environments that are great for people, animals, the environment, and design lovers.
Staron® Solid Surfaces are manufactured from natural minerals refined from bauxite, blended with acrylic resin. With over 80 colours to choose from, the surfaces can be thermoformed into flowing curves or sculpted into creative shapes; suitable for limitless edge profiles, drop down edges, splashbacks, tile coves and more. A selection of Staron colours are also available translucent, and can be backlit to bring your design to life. The unique joining capabilities of Staron® means that long and wide surfaces can be created with no open joins, just one monolithic surface.
