Bathroom cleanliness is consistently one of the lowest scoring tables in the HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey. Healthcare facilities require special attention when it comes to shower pans, shower wall panels, countertops and lavatory bowls. Just any material won’t do the trick. We have decades of experience providing healthcare facilities with solid surface solutions for bathrooms, patient rooms, and office/nurse stations.

NSF-51 Standard establishes minimum public health and sanitation requirements for materials and finishes such as food preparation and serving surfaces.
This is the first Ligature Resistant drain cover made exclusively for solid surface showers. When planning the construction of a bathroom for patients suffering from mental illness, it is essential in the design process to eliminate points of ligature, which may result in self-harm or in extreme cases, loss of life. Tower Industries’ patent-pending design accomplishes these goals and more.
“There were no drains [on the market] that were ligature resistant,” recalled Donna Dare Bickley, of JHS Architecture. "[Tower] redesigned a better drain to fit into the shower. It’s a retrofit so it can just be plugged in and screwed in."

Clean Bathrooms = Higher HCAHPS Scores. Standard Designs offer soft returns for more through cleaning.
Solid surface is a non-porous material, so bacteria, mold and mildew have no place to take hold.
Solid surface shower bases can be created with custom designs that will fit any new or existing bathroom layout.
When the shower inevitably gets scratched, you won't need to replace it. Wear and tear can be buffed away with sandpaper.
Hospitals and behavioral health facilities have unique needs, and usually can't settle for off-the-shelf showers. Check out the work we have done in the past, and see how our solid surface shower solutions can help you with your next shower design..
