LG Hausys Celebrates Donating HI-MACS Surface Material to Successfully Build Kennesaw State University Urban Blanket Project

It can be an elusive - finding a business that not only delivers a valuable product, but also gives back to their community. In many people's opinion, LG Hausys certainly fit that bill. On the business end LG Hausys's hard surface material building product HI-MACS offers a long list of remarkable uses, all with very clear benefits, that has won the company very deep praise. But providing a superior product is just part of the LG Hausys mission. Another key element is giving back to their community whenever possible. Recently, this took form in the company donating all the HI-MACS material needed to help students from the local Atlanta college Kennesaw State University build an "Urban Blanket" in Tech Square of their city. The Urban Blanket is a unique structure designed by Professor Gernoth Riether from the university and twenty of his top students. The response to the structure, which allows people to relax out of the sun, has won universal praise for it's appearance, function and quality construction from the greater Atlanta community and beyond.

"We are always happy to give back to Atlanta, a city we value so much, and especially to our students here in Atlanta," commented a spokesperson from the company. "The Urban Blanket is breathtaking and it shows what type of quality HI-MACS delivers. It's affordable, resilient, effective and looks amazing. We'd encourage anyone local to check out the Urban Blanket or for our customers in other states to jump on the internet and take a look. It's jaw dropping."

Local press has described Urban Blanket as, "as a sort of new-age public gathering space". The structure is temporarily installed on 5th Street - between Spring Street and Interstate 75 - in Midtown Atlanta.

According to the company, HI-MACS, the solid surface maunfactured and distributed by LG Hausys, delivers a quite extensive list of benefits when used in place of other kinds of tile or stone. Some highlights include: the strength of HI-MACS, which is actually higher than that of normal stone. HI-MACS are hygienic, including being non-porous which prevent bacteria and mold from taking an easy hold; the product is made of renewable material; low maintenance, HI-MACS can last for generations; and HI-MACS is very affordable, available at a significanly lower price point than other building options.

LG Hausys feel such confidence in HI-MACS that they offer a 15 year warranty.

Feedback from customers has been very positive across the board.

John M., from Georgia, recently said, "We used HI-MACS in our basement after a great deal of thought and it turned out to be a wonderful decision. The price was right and it looks fantastic. It's also very easy to keep looking great. I'd recommend LG Hausys without any hesitation. Five stars all the way."
