TERREON SOLID-SURFACE-MATERIAL LAVATORY DECKS AND SINKS
Bradley Corporation, the industry's leading manufacturer of premium
quality commercial lavatories, presents Terreon Solid-surface-material
and TerreonRE Recycled Solid-surface-material for countertops and
vanities with accompanying integrated solid surface sinks. Terreon
lasts a lifetime and can easily be repaired and renewed, minimizing
the need for replacement or disposal. They meet the highest industry
quality and performance standard for solid-surface-materials,
Many of the environmental benefits of Terreon products come from
efficient manufacturing processes and the longevity of the materials.
Over 96% of all Terreon products are completely molded including
bowls, overflows, backsplashes and aprons. This eliminates fabrication
waste and the use of sealants and adhesives for completely molded
designs such as our Washfountains, Advocate Lavatory Systems, Express
Lavatory Systems, Frequency Lavatory Systems, and Multi-Fount
Terreon and TerreonRE are GREENGUARD Certified for Indoor Air Quality
and Indoor Air Quality for Children & Schools. They are composed of a
non-toxic, bio-based, resin, and produce virtually no "off-gassing" of
volatile organic compounds. Terreon and TerreonRE are nonporous
materials which means that they will not support the growth of mold,
mildew or bacteria - substances that can adversely affect indoor air
Pigments used to manufacture Terreon and TerreonRE are free from heavy
metals and toxic or carcinogenic ingredients. They withstand the abuse
of chemicals, stains, burns and impact. Both materials are Class 1
Fire Rated, so in a fire situation, they burn clean with an
insignificant amount of smoke.
TerreonRE Recycled Solid-surface-material: As part of Bradley's
Commitment to the Environment, Bradley introduced TerreonRE. It has
all of the features of Terreon Solid Surface with the added benefit of
25% pre-consumer recycled granules and 8% rapidly renewable material
which can count toward LEED credits. Bradley offers an extensive
Terreon and TerreonRE color collection as an option for Bradley’s
solid surface product offerings.
