PITTSBURGH -- The International Surface Fabricators Association has launched its Safe Solid Surface campaign. The idea behind the educational initiative is to help make architects, designers, healthcare facility planners, consumers and all other surfacing specifiers aware of the clean and hygienic properties of solid surface during this time when cleanliness is so critical to everyone’s health.

An article outlining the reasons this material is a strong fit for those wanting to help ensure safe, quality materials are used in healthcare applications, commercial kitchens, the hospitality industry and even residential kitchen and bath applications has been put together by ISFA.

Both a more in-depth article version and briefer article version can be downloaded.

Outlines of the benefits of solid surface, including its hygienic and health-promoting properties, versatility, safety certifications and ease of maintenance, among others, along with a variety of photos are available on the ISFA website at http://www.isfanow.org/safesolidsurface.

ISFA is an independent, not-for-profit trade association made up of companies that work with all surfacing materials. It is the only non-profit association that focuses on all premium countertop and surfacing materials.
