The benefits of Krion® K·Life in hospital atmospheres


Although any space, which is in contact with people has to have certain hygiene and safety conditions, there are some places where health standards have to be extremely high indeed.

We are talking about sanitary spaces, where every single detail which may affect the hygiene of the space is taken into account. Whether they are clinics, hospitals, medical consultations or beauty salons; healthcare atmospheres need to bank on materials, tools and protocols which ensure bacteria-free spaces with no contaminants.  

The ease of contagion, along with the susceptibility of the people that go to a medical centre, results in stronger measures being taken. Thus, businessmen, architects and interior designers are increasingly banking on those solutions which enhance safety for people.  

Because of the need of becoming familiarised with the materials which benefit the atmospheres related to health, Hospitecnia, the prestigious architecture, engineering and hospital management website has published an article about Krion® K·Life 1100 and how the material creates better hospital atmospheres.

The benefits of Krion® K·Life in Healthcare spaces

The main requirement for a material to be used in public spaces is that of having been given a number of certifications by independent organizations which ensure the safety of the facilities and people alike. Krion counts on the EPD (Environmental Product Declaration): with the ecolabel type III which focuses on the impact studies during the whole service life of the material, detailing the impact which is produced in each stage of the service life.

Among the huge number of benefits of Krion® K·Life 1100 for the health sector, professionals highlight the following:  

  • Bacteriostatic surface: Krion® does not allow bacteria to spread, something which is extremely important in an environment where the infection probabilities are very high.  
  • Easy-to-clean properties: Its almost zero porosity means  Krion® stops dirt and contaminants getting into the material. The lack of joints is also helpful for easy cleaning since there are no hard-to-reach areas where dirt can build up.  
  • Resistance to chemicals: Health spaces have to ensure that the hygiene in the place is absolute by all means.This is the reason why materials with aggressive compounds which disinfect and kill bacteria are generally usedKrion® is resistant to these types of materials, therefore, the integrity of the surface and the durability are guaranteed.
  • The ability to customise: In hospital centres, covering the needs which ensure the wellbeing of people is paramount. The thermoforming properties by our solid surface help with its adaption to the environment, based on the established professional requirements.  


The Krion® solid surface brings together the most important properties from our clients point of view, but, Krion® K·LIFE 1100, these benefits have significantly increased, up to the point where they make the environment better for people, something which is essential in any atmosphere.
