Improve the Experience with Wilsonart® At Wilsonart, we know the mission of every healthcare organization is to provide patient care that’s effective, medically relevant, and operationally efficient; all in a comfortable, convenient environment, where the patient-provider relationship is at the center. This relationship is influenced by many factors that go well beyond the clinical aspects of the patient visit. The aesthetics of a waiting area, the quality of the surfaces, and the feel of a space can impact the development of trust required to deliver outstanding medical care. Materializing a modern built environment means utilizing the right environmental surfaces centered on evidence-based design solutions — creating a canvas for everyone, in every space, to have an exceptional experience. When designing against the risk of infectious agents and Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs), identifying and implementing the right surface solutions is paramount for safety, efficiency, and patient comfort. With multiple product choices available, Wilsonart developed Disinfection Zones as a simplified material choice guide for addressing essential Cleanability, Disinfection, and Durability requirements.

Disinfection Zones Wilsonart Disinfection Zones is an easyto-follow guideline for selecting the right surfaces within four primary healthcare areas prone to infectious risk. Each Disinfection Zone, from Low Risk to Very High Risk, addresses the specific cleanability, disinfection, and durability requirements for creating high-functioning spaces. These long-lasting spaces can measure up to stringent cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and sterilizing protocols.
