Wilsonart have launched a new range of solid laminate worktops with black core. Zenith double-sided laminate is no thicker than a slice of bread at 12.5mm, requires no edging and can be shaped and styled on site.
Zenith has a decorative surface finish on two sides, perfect to create waterfall-end panels and co-ordinated bespoke open shelves. In a kitchen an under-mount sink with drainer grooves that reveal its black core are practical and easy to create as the material is 100% waterproof. Zenith can be installed with standard tooling and is available in a choice of 3-metre; worksurfaces, breakfast bars, upstands and splashbacks as well as a 950mm curved module.
Available in three textures – Roche a slate style design, Granite, looks and feels like granite and Linimat, a authentic solid wood effect – and 16 colours, it is 100% waterproof, impact, heat and wear resistant.
Ruby Kiernan marketing executive for Wilsonart says, “KBB showed us that thin worksurfaces are not only in but will be here for some time to come. Consumers seeking the look can make considerable savings using a solid, easy-to-work product like Zenith, unlike many of the thin worktop solutions that require bespoke templating. Not only is it stunning aesthetically but it is also adaptable. A professional fitter or competent DIYer can custom cut and fit the product on site on the day of the final fix. There is no costly templating or long waits for off-site manufacture and it is also competitively priced, positioned between premium laminate and solid surface. Its look and texture creates a realism that is virtually indistinguishable from stone, slate, wood or concrete.”
