Developers building in style with Ultra-Thin Worksurfaces
Housebuilders are the largest growth area for sales of Zenith solid-core laminate worksurface. Nick Jones, sales & marketing director for Wilsonart UK explains: "The demand for Zenith has been remarkable since its launch in 2016. We were the first to market with a slim solid core product range of its kind. We knew it would appeal to kitchen and bathroom designers but the success of Zenith with builders and contractors has been a fantastic bonus.
"Zenith is 100% solid and waterproof which means it can be stored on site. It's adaptable and easy to handle on site too, so can be cut as it is required for kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms and WCs with no need for off-site templating."
Available in three convincing textures mimicking either concrete, granite or wood, Zenith offers a compelling range of design options:
Curves, thick-and-thin surface combinations and co-ordinating backsplashes are easy to create and can be fixed at the same time the kitchen or bathroom units are being installed.
Zenith has a decorative surface finish on both 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 the stunning black core are practical and easy to create.
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.
Three textures: Roche a lifelike slate or concrete design; Granite, looks and feels like granite, and Linimat, a blended linear flat structure that produces an authentic solid wood effect.
Available in 11 decors
100% Waterproof. Impact and wear resistant. Heat resistant
Square edge, self-supporting, no need to edge
