The Healthcare Collection

“In response to designers’ requests for more healthcare-specific design elements, Panolam created The Healthcare Collection to provide the ultimate in design flexibility for a wide range of healthcare interior environments,” said Wendy Noory, Panolam’s director of design. “Panolam’s Healthcare Collection includes patterns that are neutral in color and smaller scaled abstracts design elements that will enhance the surroundings of any healthcare environment.”


The Healthcare Collection is a grouping of four new Pionite patterns, four new Nevamar patterns, and four Inspira digital patterns in addition to some existing patterns. These designs include woodgrains, solids and abstracts designed to create a relaxed and healing environment for healthcare interiors.


DUET™ Wall Panels

DUET Wall Panels are designed and tested for wall and ceiling applications in healthcare environments such as kitchens, cafeterias, and many others. The panels and their matching division bars, also come with a proprietary coating against fading from ultra-violet sources.
