Product Recommendations

Our DineSafe™ protective panels are a phenomenal barrier at face-height, and affix to the underside of most surfaces, enabling cleaning while not harming your tabletops.

Versatile Rambler and Juno personal table base series are easily moved & cleaned, and enable distancing.

As of June 1, 2020, antimicrobial protection is standard on all Deluxe and graphic laminate (OpenStudio, custom graphics). This protection can be added to standard -38 and -60 finish Wilsonart Laminates upon request. Contact your Account Manager for info and pricing.

If you are using laminate, NeoCast Urethane Edge tops have a resilient bonded/fused edge that is as close to seamless as possible, preventing accumulation of debris, germs, bacteria, and viruses.

EnduraCore tabletops offer a seamless surface that is easily cleanable with all commercial grade cleaners. EverCore Solid Surface tabletops are also a good seamless option, but we strongly suggest you investigate the solid surface manufacturer's cleaning recommendations as they can vary.

Our sturdy range of Metal Frame seating is easily disinfected using the CDC guidelines below. We recommend a metal or vinyl seat for frequent sanitizing.

BoltaFlex Colorguard Vinyl (standard grade): PreFixx® protected upholstery can be cleaned with a variety of sanitizing disinfectants with little to no discoloring or damage to the finish. Download more info at this link (updated 6/22/2020).

Solid Wood Tops 

EcoLab Oasis 146 is a cleaner that is safe on our solid wood tabletop products.  Oasis 146 Multi-Quat Sanitizer is an EPA-registered, concentrated, no rinse quat sanitizer that is effective across a dilution range of 0.25 - 0.67 oz per gallon of water. It provides a wider sanitization range with maximum convenience. It’s an easy spray and wipe, mop bucket or third sink sanitizer application with no rinsing required. Oasis 146 Multi-Quat Sanitizer can also be used to deodorize garbage storage areas, garbage bins, toilet bowls and any other hard nonporous surfaces in odor causing areas.

Mild Soap and Water is the best thing to clean with.  Staying away from bleach and ammonia will prevent the table finish from getting tacky, but we understand the gravity of the situation needing to be sanitized.  We have found that EcoLab Oasis 146 does not react with our finish as much as other sanitizers and should be strong enough to decontaminate any surfaces needed.
