Striking Ultra-Thin Solid Laminate Worktops with Spectacular Black Core Launched by UK’s Leading Worktop Manufacturer.

Hot on the heels of the KBB Exhibition where thin worktops were the stand out trend in kitchens, Zenith is a new ultra-thin 12.5 mm solid laminate work surface range from Wilsonart and one of the slimmest formats available. Drainer Grooves in Zenith solid thin worktops from Wilsonart

Launched earlier this month, Zenith double-sided laminate is no thicker than a slice of bread and has been specifically designed and manufactured to appeal to forward-thinking designers of custom-made British kitchens and bathrooms. Its extra-black core is completely solid, requires no edging and can be shaped and styled on site.

Available in three convincing textures each mimicking either concrete, granite or wood, Zenith offers a compelling range of design advantages for varying home space applications in all budgets.

How to use Zenith.  Curves, thick-and-thin surface combinations and co-ordinating backsplashes, are all simple 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 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 the stunning 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.

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.”
