Durability and beauty are unlikely partners. It is rare when both are exclusive when specifying vertical surfaces. Even rarer still is the challenge for design professionals to use solid surface textures in a variety of vertical applications. From elevator cab interiors to wall protection, finding unique surfacing solutions can be a challenge. Many of these wall finishes are designed for residential use only and will not perform well in commercial spaces. With solid surface the design opportunities are endless.
Public spaces demand durable surfaces. High performance surfaces should not be plain or unattractive. They should perform beautifully. Many vertical surfacing solutions in the marketplace today are focused only on aesthetics. Performance is usually an afterthought. Few surfacing products today combine both aesthetics and durability in one vertical solution. Solid surface can be thermoformed with textured patterns and CNC machined in a variety of custom patterns. Painted MDF or molded plaster can not offer the same value.
In response, ASST created SCULPTCOR ® textured wall surfaces to provide an attractive durable solution unlike anything on the market today. Manufactured with 100% solid surface acrylic, this is an antibacterial wall cladding that is made to last. ASST’s proprietary mounting system allows for field adjustment and individual panel removal for maintenance. It is ASST’s legacy to continue assisting design professionals with project challenges other fabricators avoid. Be sure to contact us with your next solid surface project!

Solid surface thermoforming technologies allow for a myriad of complex forms to be created such as a topographic map. The linchpin to creating extreme contours is 5 axis CNC machining. 3D CAD software such as SolidWorks ® can be utilized to model practically any surface texture. Designers are continuing to push the boundaries with innovative surfaces that enhance interior architectural space.
Many times design professionals submit drawings for bid to General Contractors without specifying an appropriate wall cladding product in the architectural specification. Designers run the risk of installing contoured vertical wall surfaces made from molded gypsum plaster or thin plastic. The costs required for maintenance of these ineffective wall cladding systems required an entire new approach.
In response, we focused our business around thermoforming from the beginning. ASST has created a truly “niche” business, catering to advanced fabrication solutions for commercial construction. We created SCULPTCOR ® textured wall cladding to provide a durable solution unlike anything on the market today. Manufactured with 100% solid surface acrylic, this is an anti-bacterial wall cladding that is made to last. ASST’s proprietary mounting system allows for field adjustment and individual panel removal for maintenance.

Solid surface is more traditionally utilized for countertops and interior vertical applications. In Europe and in Asia however, solid surface exterior wall panels and fixtures have been steadily gaining acceptance. Today, General Contractors and Architects in the United States are just beginning to discover the advantages of using solid surface for exterior applications.
With any new architectural application, questions of durability become a concern. Concerns regarding lightfastness and thermal expansion require knowledgeable answers. Many fabrication shops in the United States have never used solid surface for exterior projects. Fabrication knowledge and experience are rare in this new “exterior territory” for solid surface.
To resolve these concerns, we have positioned our business to ASsiST customers with the technical challenges of an exterior project. Our depth of experience with exterior site furniture as well as exterior wall panels is invaluable as we work through the details to make your project happen. Our innovative team of estimators, planners and project managers collaborate and deliver project results in a way few competitors can.
ASST is uniquely positioned to fulfill all aspects of your project. Whatever you need, ASST can build it to the exact specifications, in a safe manner and to the finest quality standards you expect. Even our EMR safety rating is outstanding at .793! We look forward to Going Beyond to address your exciting project challenges. Contact us now online or call us at 717-630-1251.
Today, 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.
