Earthstone solid surface worktops bring a new dimension to the kitchen, bridging the gap between laminate and granite. Designed to have the appearance of natural stone but without the high cost of fitting and maintenance. Earthstone surfaces provide a smooth, seamless look and are hygienic, resistant to mould, bacteria and most household stains.
The Earthstone range of worktops and accessories are designed to enhance any kitchen, mixing style with practicality and highlighting the worktop as a stunning, integral feature.
6mm thick solid acryllic surface bonded to a 28mm high performance chipboard core, with a moisture resistant barrier on the underside. All worktops are pre-finished to a matt surface ready for immediate installation and are available with factory applied edges on three sides.
Shades available for Earthstone Worktops:
Earthstone worktops are available in 3m lengths for ease of handling and fitting, combined with a standard 605mm width across all design options. 1.8m worktops are also available to reduce wastage and cost. Breakfast bars are 3m by 665mm wide and a 1.8m by 970mm wide option doubles as an island worktop. Feature worktops include a 3m breakfront worktop in all designs and a 1.8m sink module featuring a white acryllic 1 ½ bowl white sink and drainer grooves in the worktop.
No templating is required. Semi-finished worktop blanks supplied ready for direct fitting using normal, everyday installation techniques similar to laminate worktops. No extra work is needed to build up the thickness or edges nor additional underside fixing points, effectively saving time and installation costs.
Ideally suited for different sink options; undermount sinks are fitted directly to the underside of the solid surface creating a secure, waterproof bond. Each sink size requires a specific jig that are available here. Inset sinks are fitted exactly in the same way as laminate worktops - sealed all around creating a moisture-resistant bond between surface and sink. Belfast sinks provide a distinctive design feature.
A full range of accessories are available:
Highly durable and long lasting, Earthstone surfaces are easy to clean and maintain - even small scuffs and scratches can be removed
Scuffs and scratches that appear through everyday use can be easily buffed away. A chopping board should always be used to protect the surface
Similar to other worktop materials always protect the worktop from hot pans, earthenware or dishes placed directly from the oven or cooker
Earthstone worktops have a solid non-porous surface, resistant to normal household stains, mould and bacteria growth. A regular wipe down with a mild detergent and water keeps the worktop looking newer for longer.
