The options are only as limitless as your imagination allows
As part of our mission to supply without compromise, the best quality products, we at Sleeptite extensively use High Pressure Laminate panels (HPL) throughout most of our bunk/ POD ranges. We will not use wood, standard MDF, fibreboard, chipboard, or any other sub-standard surface treated composites in our manufacturing process.
We see considerable advantages in using HPL for our products. It is strong, extremely hard wearing, scratch resistant and it does not absorb moisture. Bed bugs don’t like it (unlike wood), it does not split or crack, has excellent fire-retardant properties and is easy to clean. An application of microSURE™ our new Covid-19 proven General purpose Cleaner and Disinfectant will protect all HPL surfaces for up to 90 days against Corona viruses, bacteria, algae and fungi.
But even without microSURE™ treatment solid grade HPL is has excellent anti-bacterial and microbial properties and is impervious to boiling water and bed bugs.
HPL is available in a wide range of colours and finishes. It is manufactured using a high percentage of recycled Kraft paper all bonded by a special resin. HPL is also extensively used where clean non-porous surfaces are required, such as in laboratories and washrooms. In addition, HPL is used as both an interior and exterior decorative finish for buildings.
As the preferred material of choice for high end lockers in changing rooms, particularly where high moisture and humidity is present, HPL is the best choice for hostel bunk bed products.
