We can provide you with a range of Kitchen Benchtops.

Engineered Quartz Stone

These products are a blend of up to 93% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins. With quartz being one of the hardest surfaces in the world it allows these benchtops to be

  • Scratch resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Heat resistant
  • They do not require sealing
  • Ultra-hygienic
  • Non porous

Natural Stones – Granites and Marbles

Granite is a very popular choice due to its aesthetic appeal. As a natural stone, each piece is unique, with individual characteristics. Granite is also highly scratch and stain resistant, providing a durable surface solution. Granite benchtops are the choice for making a statement.

Marble, however, still being a natural stone, is not as durable as granite. It can stain and scratch quite easily and should be sealed quite regularly to help maintain it. Marble is usually selected as a feature piece as it does look like a work of art and is better used in areas such as a back panel, splashback or a wall.

Acrylic Solid Surface

This flexible alternative to stone has the capability to create seamless benchtops in your room. It can be shaped (thermoformed) into a variety of profiles, designs or edge treatments and is repairable, if damaged. Acrylic Solid Surfaces are:

  • Durable
  • Tough
  • Easy to clean
  • Non-porous
  • Repairable
  • Seamless

Compact Sintered Surface

These benchtops are made using a blend of raw materials including glass, porcelain and quartz.

The Sintering Technology: compacting, resistance and durability

The 100% natural raw materials are subject to very high pressures and temperatures. The combination of raw materials firstly goes through a press where high amounts of force and pressure are applied and secondly, the sheets are baked in an oven at a temperature of more than 1,200ºC.

This makes them extremely durable, hygienic and has the following amazing attributes:

  • Zero water absorption
  • Colour stability
  • Dimensional stability
  • Superior mechanical resistance
  • High UV resistance
  • Ice and thawing resistance
  • High resistance to fire and heat
  • Abrasion resistance
  • High scratch resistance
  • Fire proof material (can be used behind gas cooktops)
  • Suitable for constant contact with water

Laminate Benchtops:

Laminate benchtops are a cost effective benchtop solution. They are available in a large range of colours, finishes and textures and can be postformed or square edged. These benchtops have been around for many years and are now generally used in smaller rooms such as laundries, work spaces, study’s and ancillary rooms.
