When creating environments where safety is key, especially in healthcare, food service or educational settings, architects and designers need a surface they can trust. HI-MACS® is extremely tough. Scratch-resistant, stain-resistant and capable of withstanding sustained temperatures up to 225°F, HI-MACS® will sustain its beautiful luster and hygienic properties for years to come. A low VOC-emitting product, HI-MACS® is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified, as well as GREENGUARD Children & Schools certified, which sets chemical emissions guidelines for building products used in schools. All HI-MACS® surfaces are NSF/ANSI Standard 51-certified to the highest level for food contact, for food of all types. And because it's nonporous, HI-MACS is completely self-sealing and resists harmful bacterial growth. Additionally, our solid surface offers designers recycled material up to 35% comprised of 6-13% pre-consumer recycled content, trim materials, unused particulates, and sheets of solid surface below production standards. The reuse of this content cuts down on waste and helps us to leave a smaller carbon footprint – the most basic yet essential component of sustainable design. Our Eden Plus collection has been certified by the Scientific Certification System (SCS) and allows buildings to earn 1 or 2 LEED credits.
MADE IN USA
Our HI-MACS production facility in Adairsville, GA began operations in 2005 and currently supplies all of North America and Europe while maintaining eco-friendly and sustainable manufacturing practices. The new plant was carefully designed and constructed to avoid impacting the surrounding wetlands. Since opening, we've successfully reduced water waste output substantially each year. We've lessened solid waste output by almost 90% by re-purposing previously discarded materials and deploying an aggressive waste analysis and separation process. Plants are reusing the super sacks and wooden pallets by which raw materials are delivered, while cover films are collected and in turn, recycled.
