GREENSBORO, N.C., July 10th, 2020 – At the height of the COVID-19 crisis, ATI Decorative Laminates offers solutions for the new reality of COVID-19 in hospitality, office and healthcare spaces.

The most recent innovation by ATI is Deco-Defender. Using ATI’s LuxCore Plus (a translucent, decorative FRP panel) as an insert into a framed aluminum system with legs (48”W x 60”H overall), it allows for a stylish accent piece that protects against the spread of COVID-19. The Deco-Defender is a lightweight, easy to move accent piece that comes with two inserts sizes; 32”x48” and 48”x48”, perfect for any consumer-oriented business. This protective and decorative barrier/partition is stain, fingerprint, abrasion, and chemical resistant.

According to U.S. Army researchers, harsh cleaners must be used every two hours to keep hospital surfaces free of bacteria such as MRSA and VRE. For many facilities, this frequency of environmental services is just improbable. In addition to the products above, ATI has the option of applying a matte or gloss, antimicrobial coating that can be used on most of clear substrates from the Fusion line and the Deco-Defender product line.

Along with the Deco-Defender product, ATI’s MirroFlex line has been tested for compatibility with the use of anti-viral disinfectants that are used to kill the COVID-19 virus. Through a test completed by Diversey Hygiene Company, MirroFlex products passed when wiped and soaked in three different disinfectants (Virex Plus, Oxivir Five 16 and Virex TB), some of which are listed by the EPA to use against COVID-19.

Our Door Skins line has also passed a compatibility test with a wide variety of disinfectants used to kill the COVID-19 virus without showing discoloration or damage. Click on the link below to view the summary of this testing. Read the study information here.
