Yes! However, many of our deep texture surfaces work best if a notepad or similar writing device is placed between the laminate surface and the writing surface.
Wilsonart® HPL has long been a preferred surface for guest room doors due to its combination of great looks and high-performance features. HPL is high impact, scratch- and scuff-resistant making it superior to traditional veneer and painted wood doors.
Wilsonart® Coordinated Surfaces is the best value-engineered solution with an easy-to-specify combination of HPL, TFL, and Edgeband that is completely coordinated into the industry's best-matched collection. Select your design and finish from the Wilsonart® Commercial Laminate designs and ask for Wilsonart® TFL by name when you place your order.
Yes and no. Our Quartz product is currently only distributed in North America. However, we do have the ability to ship single fabricated projects to other countries on a case-by-case basis. Our Solid Surface is available globally and is quoted based on freight, tariffs, and cost to serve each geographic market. Please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or email us at Hospitality@Wilsonart.com to discuss your specific needs.
Yes and no. Wilsonart® HPL designs can be accessed globally as our locations share the same design offering and can service accounts by sourcing paper from other units. As for finishes, most global locations have their own market-specific finishes so our ability to match finishes globally is limited. Please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or email us at Hospitality@Wilsonart.com to discuss your specific needs.
Matching material from the U.S. and Asia can pose a challenge due to differences in production methods and finish availability. Wilsonart and customers can proactively source sample material from the various global units to ensure the closest match possible. Please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or email us at Hospitality@Wilsonart.com to discuss your specific needs.
TFL globally-matched finishes are not offered at this time.
Yes. We currently offer a blank top Solid Surface program. Please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or Customer Service at 800-433-3222 to discuss your specific needs.
Yes! However, on-site fabrication and installation would need to be performed by a certified Wilsonart Fabricator/Installer. For a list of certified fabricators in your area, please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or Customer Service at 800-433-3222.
Yes! Sometimes you need just the right color to make your design complete and Wilsonart can make that happen. Keep in mind, custom colors will have a higher cost and extended lead times. Time also needs to be factored in for proofing in order to ensure complete satisfaction with the color prior to actual production. Please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or Customer Service at 800-433-3222 to discuss your specific needs.
Yes! Our Solid Surface materials are often used for interior signage. In fact, several of our designs are translucent and may be backlit to produce an illuminated effect. We do recommend our materials for interior use only.
The most popular types of chemical disinfectants are hypochlorite based disinfectants (i.e., Clorox Healthcare Bleach Germicidal Cleaner), Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide based disinfectants: (i.e., OXIVIRÂ® TB), Quaternary Ammonium Salt based disinfectants: (i.e., Virex II 256), and Phenol/Chlorophenol based disinfectants: (i.e., Expose II 256).
Wilsonart tests the sensitivity of our material surfaces to the basic chemistry used in four disinfectants (Clorox Healthcare Bleach Germicidal Cleaner, OXIVIRÂ® TB, Virex II 256 and Expose II 256). Note: Specific concentrations used for testing may differ from those used in various commercial disinfectants available on the market.
Stains that remain on Wilsonart® Solid Surface can be easily removed with water and/or commercial cleaner. The removal process may require extra refinishing steps depending on the duration of contact time, frequency, and concentration of the staining agent. For more information and a more extensive list of chemicals used, please view our Solid Surface Tech Data Chemical-Resistance Sheet.
Wilsonart qualifies all laminate (HPL/Chemsurf®/TFL) designs using the Xenon fade test (ISO4586-3) during the development stage. Solid Surface shows significant resistance to fade upon exposure to UV exposure determined by the Xenon fade testing using ISO4586 (no-effect observed). We are currently working on a method to test the UV performance metrics of our other engineered surfaces more frequently used in standard healthcare facilities.
Yes! Wilsonart has Care and Maintenance documents for most of our product categories. More information can be found on the Technical Resources page of our website.
