Touch a solid Surface worktop and you’ll discover a silky smooth surface with seamless, inconspicuous joins. Solid Surfacing gives a luxurious feel to stylish kitchens.
Loved by interior designers because of its versatility, Solid Surface was once confined to the very top end of the Kitchen market and had to manufactured and installed by specialist companies. Today, thanks to developments in the industry Solid Surface worktops are now a realistic option at all levels.
There are many variations of solid surface worktop with each type having unique features. The choice is usually between a thin veneer (2-6mm) of solid surface sheet material bonded to a core board, or a thicker self-supporting sheet with no need for any additional substrate.
Encore by Bushboard Ltd. has a 5mm thick layer of Acrylic Solid Surface sheet bonded to a particle board core and finished with a high pressure laminate on the underside. Two thicknesses are produced – SLIMLINE (27mm) for a contemporary sleek look and TRADITIONAL (44mm) with its classic appeal. These worktops together with their accessories are our preferred stock range.
Unlike the Granite and Quartz materials which they emulate, Solid Surface worktops can be machined with standard woodworking tools and the joints are glued with colour-matched Acrylic resin adhesive and then sanded smooth. In use any minor surface scuffs and scratches can be sanded out to restore them to their new condition.
Whilst Encore worktops offer many benefits over other solid surfaces we recognise that other options may suit your specific project. We are pleased to be able to offer the full range of Maia, Getacore and Mirostone products. Contact us for details of these or any other materials you may have seen.
