MCDM AG.COM | M AY/ J U N E 2018 | Medical Construction & Design 63 Products FURNITURE & CASEWORK Self-Disinfecting Tech Added to Furniture, Casework Line Proximity Systems, Inc.'s new UV-Clean self- disinfecting technology helps reduce the trans- mission of infection pathogens in healthcare environments. Proximity has incorporated UV-Clean into the Classic SD and Embrace SD self-disinfecting cabinets, which reduce bio- burden on hospital surfaces around the clock, independent of human intervention. The technology delivers low levels of UVC light that damages the DNA of pathogens, effectively eliminating their ability to reproduce. The UV-Clean technology is designed to attach to a monitor screen, insert into any wall-mounted workstation or as a freestanding keyboard application. ID#113 SURFACES Solid Surface Collection Expands with 32 New Colors Durasein has added 32 new colors and four new color lines — expanding its total offerings to 68 design aesthetics in solid surface. The four new color lines — ColorZ, Lineer, Tivoli and Vino — were inspired by nature and the Feng Shui principle of bal- ance. Materials and colors can be custom- ized into anything, from 3-D patterns, curved surfaces and organic shapes to a full scope of architectural and decor elements that merge purposeful with imaginative. The pure acrylic solid surface is ideal for a wide variety of commercial spaces — including hos- pitals. Nontoxic and environmentally friendly, the surface is resistant to bacteria, stains, fi re, water, chemicals, heat and UV light. The solid surface can be produced as sheet materials, textured wall panels and custom shapes. Its applications include countertops, wall cladding, partitions and other creative architectural elements. ID#114 New Flooring Collection Rejects Repetitive Look of LVT, Provides Design Flexibility Gerfl or's new LVT collection, Saga 2 , provides design fl exibility and breaks free from the repetitive looks often seen in LVT. The collection brings the creative, aesthetic and decora- tive appeal of LVT to new levels. Ideal for healthcare, the collection's styles are offered in the same size as carpet tiles, for a seamless transition from carpet to tile. The collection utilizes thick backing from recycled vinyl and cork, a rapidly renewable natural material, providing sound management properties throughout a room. Each tile features a decorative fi lm protected by a thin, less than .3-inch-thick transparent wearlayer and is treated with factory applied, no-wax for life Protectsol surface treatment. ID#111 Versatile Tile Offerings Incorporate Patterns, Contrasting Colors & Varied Size Options Crossville Inc. has launched Retro Active 2.0, a versatile through-body porcelain tile collec- tion with fashion-forward colors, patterns and size options. This tile line offers designers inventive solutions to create customized looks. It is recommended for interior fl oors, walls and countertops, as well as exterior walls. The collection's 13 colors, offered in unpolished or polished fi nishes, are Antico Taupe, Seal Taupe, Featherstone, Empress White, Snow Blind, Roasted Chestnut, Leaden, Mecurial, Phantom, Armor, Gulf Breeze, Racing Green and Royal Navy. In addition, Retro Active 2.0 pattern tiles, also offered in the 13 colors in a textured fi nish, work in tandem with the non-pattern tiles or on their own to give dimension to designs. ID#112 FLOORING SIGNAGE Identifying Patient Status has Never Been Easier with New Healthcare Signage System Inpro's SignScape division has released a new way to visually communicate critical patient information to medical staff. The new LokTab Patient Information Noti- fi er displays eight or 10 tabs on the side of a room sign to help identify patient needs quickly and effi ciently. With 30 unique graphics and the ability to choose a background color, the locking tabs are easily custom- ized to communicate a message. The system includes a header, face, locking tabs and accessories. The header may be mounted to the system or mounted above and coordinates with SignScape's other sign collections. Further customization is possible with either a whiteboard or window-insert option. ID#110
