Integra Introduces New Coastal Collection | Metal
Collection Offers Greater Cleanability, Maintenance and Sustainability in Guest & Lounge Seating
Integra Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality lounge seating and tables for commercial environments, is introducing its new Coastal Collection | Metal. This new line of seating products better meets the maintenance and design needs for a wide range of commercial interiors today, especially within the healthcare market. Coordinating Coastal Metal Tables accompany the launch.
Component-based construction is a standard across the entire Integra product portfolio, meaning all Coastal Collection product components – arms, arm caps, backs, feet, legs and seats – can be replaced or recovered should they become damaged or worn. This provides costs saving advantages and a more sustainable option than replacing an entire seating product when only a component needs to be replaced or recovered.
Among the collection’s five series, the Tide and Marina chairs now feature steel arms/legs with solid surface arm caps (standard), as do the Coastal Benches. The Marina and Reef series now incorporate a metal leg option with each upholstered arm offering. The new Coastal Metal Tables, featuring a steel base or legs, round out the collection and allow designers to create a fully coordinated facility.
All products within the Coastal Collection are defined by a contemporary aesthetic. The steel arms and legs, available in several powder coat finishes, further enhance the design options available to designers. Additionally, Marina and Reef’s upholstered arm versions create a softer look while also maintaining easy cleanability and durability partly through a solid surface arm cap option.
Bay and Marina bring unique maintenance advantages. Both are designed as a one-piece seat/back unit and feature a “cove clean-out” so debris can be easily wiped off the unit. The Tide Series offers a clean-out and an all-sides clean-out option allowing debris to fall directly to the floor. They also come with Integra’s Wall Saver design that protects the product’s exterior back and facility walls from unnecessary wear or damage.
Known for their superior strength and durability, all Integra products, including the Coastal Collection | Metal, pass a 2,000 lb. static capacity and 1,000 lb. dynamic (drop) capacity, both of which exceed industry standards for quality and strength. The products are bariatric weight-rated, certified Clean Air Gold and compliant with the Healthier Hospitals Initiative of Safer Chemicals Challenge.
For healthcare environments, the health and safety of patients, workers and guests is a priority, use of The Coastal Collection | Metal provides a distinct benefit. Typically easier and more effective to clean than most other types of material, steel is non-porous and non-corrosive, making it less likely to harbor bacteria. Additionally, when regularly cleaned and disinfected correctly, steel can reduce the risk of Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAIs) and prevent the spread of harmful diseases.
“The new Coastal Collection | Metal takes our range of durable and sophisticated guest and lounge seating to a new level,” said Chandra Putnam, Integra’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “All products offer exceptional comfort and forward design without sacrificing the durability and function healthcare and other 24/7 commercial environments need. Add replaceable and recoverable components, multiple features for easy maintenance, and a bariatric weight rating, the Coastal Collection | Metal checks all the boxes.”
Integra backs its products with a lifetime warranty, which includes use in 24/7 facilities.
