Bushboard reaches its zenith with latest product launch

Leading manufacturer of high-quality laminate surfaces for kitchens and bathrooms, Bushboard, has extended its offering to include Zenith, a range of hardwearing worktops with an ultra-slim profile that are designed to look, feel and perform like natural stone.

The collection has been developed with both durability and visual impact in mind. Each slimline worksurface is made of premium compact laminate, created by compressing multiple layers of decorative paper and resin together to achieve a thickness of just 12.5mm. Featuring a solid core in complementary colours, the final product is waterproof, as well as being highly resistant to impact and abrasion.

There are 20 realistic designs and four textures to choose from. Decors range from marble, stone, sparkle and industrial concrete, while finishes include Granite, Extra Matt, Fusion (slightly raised) and Roche, which is lightly roughened to imitate stone. These are available in worksurface, breakfast bar and upstand options, as well as offering splashbacks and a wide choice of coordinating colourways that work seamlessly together when fitted in kitchens and utility rooms.

Furthermore, being equally waterproof and non-porous makes Zenith surfaces especially suitable for installing undermount sinks, creating curved edges and bespoke drainage areas, by adding contrasting grooves that expose the coloured core of the material. Fitting Zenith worktops is quick and easy to achieve too, with no specialist tooling required. Surfaces can be cut to follow curves and shapes on site, before being securely fixed in place.

The whole process is made all the easier by the fact there is no need for edging, with just a simple sanding procedure and application of linseed oil or wax required to smooth and add shine. A detailed installation guide is provided upon purchase, with more information available online in the form of a digital installation guide, in-depth training video and frequently asked questions.

To achieve a truly professional finish, using Bushboard’s all-in-one ‘Complete’ sealant and adhesive is also highly recommended. Available in a range of matching colours, it can be used to bond and seal worksurfaces, upstands and splashbacks with complete confidence.

Louise Bebbington, UK Marketing Communications Manager at Bushboard, said: “As an extension to our product range, Zenith performs in the same way as a stone or marble worksurface but with all the added benefits of a compact laminate.

“The result is an extremely versatile, super-strong, barely there solution that can be used to achieve a high-end finish but at a more affordable price point. The slimline look is particularly on trend too, and perfect for achieving a minimalist effect that works especially well in open-plan spaces that are currently popular and suited to family living.

“Above all, we wanted the new Zenith worksurfaces to be uncomplicated and straight forward to install, making them ‘fitter friendly’ as well as fit for purpose. That’s why all Zenith worksurfaces come with a 10-year guarantee for extra peace of mind, making it possible to fit, forget and move on to the next job.”

Post installation, unlike stone or ceramic, no complex care routine is required to maintain Zenith surfaces. Simply wiping spills away with a damp cloth and using a mild detergent is enough to keep the original finish clean and at its best for years to come.

The inclusion of Antibacterial Protection, which is added to the compact laminate in the form of a resin (and not a coating) during the manufacturing process, serves to slow down bacteria growth by up to 99.9 per cent for the lifetime of the surface.
