HI-MACS is a modern acrylic stone surface that offers endless design possibilities, making it ideal for shop design as well as architectural and interior applications, such as sculptural and high-performance wall-cladding. Be it for interior or exterior design, this tactile, durable, non-porous, waterproof material combines aesthetics and functionality to meet every design criteria.
In shop-fitting, the store's distinct appearance and sustainability play a key role in attracting customers; it is a critical mode of communicating and defining a brand. From eye-catching counter displays and custom in-store furniture to bold statement facades, solid surface is increasingly becoming a go-to solution for retail architects and designers seeking to break boundaries. And for those looking to make their mark on the corporate world, logos can be simply and easily applied to or cut into the material.
HI-MACS is composed of natural minerals, acrylic and pigments that come together to provide a smooth, non-porous and visually seamless surface to help meet the highest standards for aesthetics, fabrication, functionality and hygiene. It is the sum of these parts that brings designers a modern material which promises to stand the test of time.
HI-MACS is hard-wearing, extremely repellent to stains and is therefore very easy to look after. An equally critical aspect when designing for retail spaces is choosing components that are easily cleaned and returned to a like-new state every morning. HI-MACS returns to its initial shine with a wipe down with a mild cleaner.
All high-traffic, high-strain areas require a highly functional, durable material. Scratches and nicks in surfaces are a natural occurrence in the retail space, but this again is an area where HI-MACS excels. Should something be able to penetrate the hard wearing surface, any good fabricator can replace the area with a seamless finish. The process is a relatively simple one with a quick drying time, ideal for the retail space.
HI-MACS solid surface is excellent both in and outdoors thanks to its non-porous surface and seamless joins. Developers can create any ambience they adore; the possibilities for creating retail attractions are as limitless as the customers' desire.
In addition to its exceptional beauty and strength, HI-MACS has been designed to excel in safety and sustainable design. As a low VOC-emitting product, HI-MACS is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified.
Thanks to its large colour pallette, thermoforming, inconspicuous joining and translucent properties HI-MACS provides a limitless range of possibilities for even the most ambitious designs.
