Description: A very informative presentation for Architects, Specifiers, Hospital Owners, Engineers, Interior Designers, and General Contractors that want a permanent, affordable, and durable solid surface solution for vanities and ADA, low threshold, and traditional shower systems. Solid Surface has proven to be a superior material over other material options for showers, vanities, and in many other locations throughout a hospital, simply because it is a non-porous and more durable material which does not harbor bacteria. Combining this material with a unique drain design for each and every shower manufactured, results in a shower which has no grout, seamless walls, and a very efficient drainage system making bacteria growth much easier to control.  These types of shower systems improve risk management while providing peace of mind in knowing that you have installed the latest technology in patient care and protection.
