Therefore, selecting the right material for laboratory worktops and furniture is of crucial importance in an environment where tests and experiments must not be contaminated.
Hygiene, cleanliness, chemical and stain resistance are key requirements. Worktops in laboratories are especially vulnerable. The material used for them needs to be hygienic, easy to clean and maintain, durable, flexible and in line with international standards.
Increasingly, there is also an additional requirement to find environmentally friendly solutions – to minimise ecological impact and maximise effectiveness.
In an environment where hygiene is key, Trespa TopLabPLUS provides the best choice. Its surface is absolutely impervious to most materials used in biochemical and medical laboratories: radio- isotopes, human tissue and blood samples or bacteria. Biological or clinical test results are dependent on non-contamination.
Trespa TopLabPLUS provides a surface impermeable to most bacteria, molds or micro- organisms. Resistant to dyes and organic solvents, Trespa TopLabPLUS is water-resistant and remains easy to clean or disinfect.
Trespa TopLabPLUS is self supporting from 13mm thickness and has a high load bearing ability. This, together with the size of panels available, allows larger worktop areas to be installed using fewer joints thus fitting the requirements for hygienic applications.
Trespa TopLabPLUS panels should be mechanically fixed to the subframe to ensure stability.
Used extensively in chemical, analytical, micro-biological and educational laboratories world-wide, Trespa TopLabPLUS is resistant to a large number of aggressive chemicals. They will not mark a Trespa TopLabPLUS surface – if cleaned within 24 hours. Test results show the panel's 24 hour resistance.
Trespa TopLabPLUS is ideal for a multi-functional environment. Trespa TopLabPLUS worktops are versatile and provide a tough and long-lasting surface that retains its good looks for many years. Used as part of a mobile and flexible environment, Trespa TopLabPLUS delivers added strength to any laboratory or lecture room.
The material's impact resistance makes it suitable for use in mobile furniture, e.g. trolley tops.
