The hemodynamics department at the Pisa University Hospital (Cisanello) has taken advantage of the features of DuPont™ Corian® high-tech surface for the technical furnishing of its operating theatres. The hospital chose to work with the experience of Favero Health Projects – a company with over 30 years of specialisation in technical healthcare furnishing which supplied its new Praxis furniture line for operating theatres, made with DuPont™ Corian®.
The Praxis line optimises the design and hygienic properties of DuPont™ Corian® not only for surfaces but also for its doors and handles, a first in hospital furnishing. This new range has been designed to complete a superior offering for the healthcare sector. Other healthcare furnishing solutions from Favero featuring DuPont™ Corian® include the Alien® wall unit and the Zerofire® modular system.
Favero Health Projects has used its extensive healthcare furnishing knowledge to satisfy the demanding requirements of Pisa University Hospital for high-grade sterile environments – such as its critical hemodynamic rooms. The company specifies DuPont™ Corian® because it isa non-porous, seamless and easy-clean material that is resistant to bacteria and fungi and is easy to decontaminate, while being reliably durable and resistant to extreme conditions.
The hygienic performance of DuPont™ Corian® has been certified by important independent institutions (such as LGA QualiTest, NSF International and the Royal Institute for Public Health). Furthermore, DuPont™ Corian® is certified for indoor air quality by the American institute, GreenGuard®.
The wide range of colours available for DuPont™ Corian® allows for elegant design and customisation even in the most hygiene-critical of environments enabling high-quality aesthetics, colour matching throughout the furnishing scheme, and an appealing ambience. of the fabrication of DuPont™ Corian® for this applications was performed by TopTech, an Italian company belonging to the “Corian® Quality Network”.
Favero and DuPont™ Corian® have enjoyed an excellent relationship for over 20 years. The Veneto-based company uses the high performance material to create specialised operating theatre units and furnishing for healthcare environments, and is committed to offering the sector continuous innovation and safety, combined with sophisticated design. In terms of the Praxis project, Favero’s ongoing experimentation led to the development of key technical solutions for operating theatres. These are characterised by pure, elegant lines and an ideal combination of hygiene and original furnishing solutions: from the application of high tech surfaces to handles and doors, to the filing of patents for an innovative assembly system.
