About fifty years ago, DuPont invented a surfacing material called Corian® . In the early years it was primarily marketed as the newest durable material for residential kitchen countertops and then for vanity tops and shower pans. Since then, applications for solid surface have expanded to include vertical surfaces as well. Design Professionals, Manufacturers and Fabricators have pushed for vertical wall cladding solutions to expand solid surface’s use beyond “typical horizontal countertops.”

Building Owners with high traffic corridors had only a few choices for durable wall protection solutions in the early years before solid surface. Design Professionals were limited to recommending materials such as vinyl wallcovering, marble, granite, concrete and plastic laminate. The shortcomings of these materials were many ranging from cracking and delaminating to requiring total replacement when damaged.

It was not until the late 1990’s that vertical solid surface wall cladding started to become popular. ASST and other leading fabricators and manufacturers helped to push applications beyond the horizontal countertop. ASST created SCULPTCOR® Textured Surfaces in the early 2000’s to provide better design solutions for interior as well as exterior cladding. Architects and Interior Designers have helped to continue to push applications. Technological advances in CNC machining and thermoforming have also helped solid surface wall cladding move to more mainstream applications such as airports and other high traffic public spaces. Today, solid surface wall cladding is widely utilized by Design Professionals across a variety of end user markets from K-12 and Collegiate Education to Corporate Space and Healthcare environments.

Susquehenna Health hallway wall panelsToday, healthcare designers have “raised the bar” with regards to design. The use of textured solid surface for wall protection is becoming a popular choice with many health systems. More hospitable than hospital. Controlling the spread of infectious disease with solid surface countertops has become the standard in healthcare. Vertical textured solid surface applications are also a smart way to incorporate a unique aesthetic that is durable, attractive and easy to maintain.

The installation of textured solid surface panels can be challenging. Mounting alignments for patterns can be difficult, especially around corners. The reverse textured sides of panels do not have a level surface to mount against a wall. To solve these issues we created a proprietary solid surface “leveling puck” and mounted z-clip system which allows for precise adjustments in the field. Panel patterns are able to be aligned with ease and installed according to architect specifications.
