Solid Surface in the Classroom – How Solid Surface is Changing Education

Middle School Solid Surface Casework - Frederick County, VASolid surface is beginning to be specified by more design professionals for interior classroom educational environments. Durable exterior materials for schools are usually brick masonry. Today, we see an evolving similar logic with solid surface interior surfaces. Durable solid surface is gaining strong momentum in educational interior applications because of it’s demonstrated lasting value. School districts are seeing the wisdom of utilizing solid surface on the interior to future proof their buildings.

Design professionals struggle with balancing surface material design, budget and performance characteristics. Class A fire rated solid surface materials are ideal for educational classroom environments. Both the antimicrobial properties and ease of cleaning outperform lesser quality surfacing materials. Unfortunately, solid surface can be easily value engineered out of a project. It can be substituted by plastic laminate which has a shorter lifespan and lacks any antimicrobial properties. Many solid surface fabricators are unable to provide project information on lifecycle costing to help design professionals make a strong case for keeping their solid surface educational project specifications intact.
