There is an almost endless choice of shapes to choose from - curved kitchen units at the end of a run or an island can be combined with a radius unit at each corner. Interesting stepped out features can be created with curved doors and drawers under a hob or sink. These curved units are a designer’s dream but standard postformed worktops do not work with these types of features. We have several solutions.
Square laminate and PP/ABS (2mm thick acrylic edges)
We can fabricate our complete range of laminate worktops with square laminate edges or a contrasting acrylic edge. In addition, over 100 patterns can have a matching acrylic edge – these edges have a softened superior finish. You can have designer curves and shapes without the added cost of more expensive worktop materials. No standard radius sizes – the exact size needed to match the unit or pillar fitted underneath it.

- Duropal R7407 HS with matching PP edge
- Duropal R5151 VV with matching PP edge
- Duropal R6213 TC with Brushed Aluminium effect ABS edge
- Duropal F7646 with matching PP edge
The PP and ABS edges, which are approx 2mm thick, give a very different appearance than can be achieved with a standard laminate edging. Depending on the worktop pattern, the joint on the edging itself may be very noticeable. This dark line is more visible on light worktop pattern.
The photograph shows the square laminate with a prominent black line and the neat finish of the matching PP edge which blends in perfectly.
