Grenite® comes out on top of City of Manhattan Beach independent testing
July 02, 2007
Testing performed by the City of Manhattan Beach to determine the suitability of various materials for use in their outdoor seating program gave Grenite® a chance to independently prove it's superiority!
Here's what the test results had to say about Grenite®:
"By far this material is the most 'outstanding.' The graffiti is completely removed; the etching is faint and there is only a slight discoloration remaining from the burning and sanding. It is recommended by the tester to use this material for the benches because of its quality and color, the sandy shade being simple and natural and will not 'catch the eye' of an aspiring vandal."
