DuPont™ Corian® plays key role in Patient Room 2020 Project

DuPont™ has teamed up with a host of major players in the healthcare market to develop Patient Room 2020 The idea is to improve the environment for patients in hospitals in the future.

As the video above shows, Corian® is a key part of this new user experience. It assists in creating a modern and seamless design, whilst its hygienic properties (from the fact it is non-porous) make it the perfect material for use in the healthcare environment. As long as you clean Corian® properly, bacteria and mould will not be able to grow.

Other features of Corian® which added great benefits to this prototype patient room include:

  • Because coved or curved details can easily be created with Corian®, a cleaner environment has been developed where the walls, made out of Corian® flow seamlessly into the floor.
  • Also benefitting from seamless solid surface flow the "grab bars" to help patients move around and get up and down are integrated directly into the walls avoiding the need for escutcheon plates.
  • Seamlessly integrated vanity bowls and shower trays
  • A worktop with a hidden Cleankeys® keyboard - a smooth worktop surface means that dirt and germs cannot collect on the keyboard.

At a time when finding ways to minimise the effects of superbugs in hospitals is at the top of the healthcare agenda DuPont™ Corian® is able to offer a solution which is both functional and able to offer designers the ability to create a positive environment for patients.
