Laminate worktops are the perfect alternative to acrylic based, granite and stone worktops at a fraction of the price. They can come with a postformed front edge or a matching PPF edge which can be continuous around curved ends and special shaped Island units.
A comprehensive selection of decors offers endless opportunities for the most modern applications to the more traditional styles. Many decors have matching upstands and splashbacks to allow us to truly individualize your kitchen.
Even though burning a cigarette on the surface of HPL is one of the quality tests specified in BS/EN 438, it is recommended that hot pans, ovenware and irons are placed on a trivet or protective pad to protect the surface from the intense heat which can cause damage to the worktop if placed directly on the surface.
Please do not cut or chop directly on the worktop surface and always use a chopping board to avoid cuts and scratches in the worktop itself, these will be more noticeable on dark decors and gloss finishes.
Kettles, coffee machines, fryers and other heat or damp source should not be positioned directly over worktop joints. Constant changes in temperature could lead to failure of the joint.
A major advantage of Laminate Worktops is that the HPL surface makes cleaning so simple. Usually a moist cloth is sufficient, but use washing-up liquid to get rid of any grease. Stubborn dirt can be removed with an organic solvent such as methylated spirits or alcohol.
