For the healthiest choice. It's got to be IDS.

From hospitals and surgeries to care homes and clinics, GP practices, dentists and pharmacies, IDS offer the healthiest choice of hygienic and hardwearing surfaces for every demanding healthcare environment. We can deliver ideal, fully compliant solutions for patient, staff and visitor areas from stock – covering everything from high traffic areas like corridors, reception and waiting rooms to clinical zones, public and staff washrooms and changing and locker rooms.

We understand the need for surfaces in healthcare applications to fulfil a range of requirements – complying to statutory standards and regulations, coping with high usage levels and maintaining good looks under tough conditions. Our ranges deliver all of that – and with a touch of style, to help create a comforting ambience in what can often be a stressful environment.

Smart and healthy solid surfaces

Hanex is a clever premium solid surface sheet material which can be cut, shaped, moulded and thermoformed into any design – and offers great performance and hygiene qualities, with resistance to bacteria, mould, heat and pollutants. It maintains its shape and colour, it’s non-porous, easy to clean and maintain and scratch and stain resistant – so a great choice for furniture, worktops, desks, sinks and much more. With 80 colours to choose from, Hanex can match any décor design.

Hanex is a cost effective, long-term option for healthcare applications – as is the Avonite range: Acrylic and Advanc3® for a vast choice of designs and thicknesses, and Studio Collection™ , with its signature looks for high end applications like private surgeries and clinics. Avonite surfaces match the hygiene qualities of Hanex, and they’re renewable, repairable and environmentally friendly – key factors for healthcare. All of these solid surfaces fulfil fire-resistance requirements.
