Bacteria-resistant solid-surface workspaces fight infection
It was reported that one in nearly 25 hospital patients is affected by a healthcare-associated infection on any given day. That statistic alone is enough to encourage people to seek alternative methods of treatment when sick. There are, however, tools available that can help renew our faith in the health system and its ability to fight HAIs. Take, for instance, bacteria-resistant solid surface workspaces and germ-resistant countertop cabinets. Made from a polyester, acrylic-modified, cast-polymer material that meets guidelines specific to critical applications, the furniture is not only affordable, but lightweight and strong enough to combat ordinary microbes such as mold. It is also capable of withstanding the spread of other harmful germs and bacteria. Standing up to exposure from rapidly accelerated temperature changes of the extremist kind isn't a problem either. Bacteria-resistant solid-surface workspaces and germ-resistant countertop cabinets are not the only products available that fight infection.
