Our coverings are not the traditional high pressure plastic laminate used by our competitors. We have developed a special product that is twice as thick as standard laminated plastics. It requires custom designed
machinery that we have developed and is fabricated to the highest tolerances.
This product has many times the impact resistance of standard plastic laminates and can cover free-formed surfaces that have comfort edge details. This technological advance in console furniture manufacturing eliminates
the need for unsightly bumper molding or dangerous self-edging. Our products are virtually impossible to chip because the detail is totally enveloped and has no sharp edges.
We also utilize this same material on our side and back panels, so our furniture has no sharp corners. All of our laminated substrates are hermetically sealed against
chemical emissions and the effects of moisture and temperature. The backing material for our worksurfaces is phenolic and has the same physical characteristics as Formica without the color coat.
Americon consoles have been designed to meet the specific requirements of a rigorous 24 x 7
environment. Special emphasis has been placed on ergonomic designs that bridge the gap between the operator and the tools he uses. Equipment accessibility and heat
dissipation have also been taken into consideration in every Americon product. Our products exceed ANSI-BIFMA safety and performance standards as established by The American
National Standards Institute and The Business and Institutional Furniture Association.
Just as you would expect on the bridge of the finest yachts, we are able to create equipment turrets in our console worksurfaces that are seamlessly incorporated. Americon's space-age coverings are "Recyclable" and carry the "Greenguard Certification".
