Alterna's paper composite surfaces from Richlite help Hooters Restaurants with new bar top design
Hooters Restaurants have been dedicated to updating their brand by rolling out beautiful and stunning renovations to their existing and new construction locations throughout the United States. The central focus of their renovation can be found in many items, but the number one item can be found with their new bar tops that are made out Richlite paper composite surfaces. Alterna is proud to be the supply partner for all Hooters locations that have incorporated the new Richlite bar in the United States and Canada.
Alterna Helps The Dome Restaurant Achieve
LEEDTM Silver Certification
The Dome Restaurant, Bar and Lounge in Coral Gables recently opened its doors to the public with an impressive LEED™ Silver Certification. With the help of Alterna, this Latin American Fusion and Caviar Bar is doing its part to conserve natural resources by utilizing Richlite’s paper composite surfaces Cascade Collection for all of the table tops in the restaurant. In addition, the signature dome structure that is suspended from the ceiling is also fabricated out of Richlite, thereby illustrating that conservation can be achieved without compromising design. According to Alterna Vice President Mark Gunia, “The Richlite table tops will outperform other traditional table top materials for the restaurant and hospitality industry because the material is extremely dense, impervious to water and may be renewed endlessly to look like new. Plus, indoor air quality will not be compromised since Richlite is GreenGuard certified and will not emit formaldehyde.” Smith and Fong’s Durapalm Coconut Palm Woven and Tambour Paneling was used as well to accent the bar and enhance the aesthetics of this sophisticated space. The Dome has been featured in a number of design and food publications and also has received tremendous recognition, such as the prestigious Green Pineapple award from the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce.
