With a number of new additions to its already extensive portfolio for 2014, James Latham
now offers one of the UK’s widest ranges of innovative surface solutions - available from one supplier - at all nine of its nationwide panel distribution sites.
With Shinnoki, the veneer is applied to an MDF base, rendering the panels sturdy and easy to use. In addition, the panels are produced in both a single or double sided finish, with the first having a melamine faced-reverse.
Veneers are mismatched, but stained and textured to create a consistent finish that shows the natural aspects and beauty of the species.
The extensive Shinnoki2.0 range is supplied in designs which are completely in tune with current design trends and includes matching realwood and ABS edge banding. The 17 designs are also supplied in separate 3-ply veneer sheets, perfect forcurved surfaces, doors or other interior requirements.
A totally original product, Valchromat is a coloured engineered fibreboard in which the colour runs throughout the entire board. This is achieved by adding organic dyes and a specially formulated resin before pressing the panel.
With eight vibrant colours in the range, Valchromat is certain to be popular within the UK shop fitting and furniture manufacturing sectors where bold and impactful colours are part of the specification. Plus, it has been approved by the British Standards Association as safe to use in the manufacture of children’s toys.
Exclusive to James Latham in the UK, Allure is an exciting and contemporary range which, as well as six different types of truly unique, real stone laminate, includes an extensive palette of high-gloss bold and vibrant acrylic colours as well as a high-gloss wood grain.
There’s also a stylish mirror laminate as well as a choice of rough-cut and brushed oak, smoked and stained veneers.
Plus, there’s a range of eco-friendly reconstituted veneers in patterns such as Rosewood and Ebony, with its unmistakable very dark heartwood and characteristic streaks, giving the veneer a distinctive and striking appearance.
Delivering dimension, depth and texture to an otherwise flat surface, HIF Finesse offers interior designers and architects in the shop fitting and commercial sectors an option which they have not had before, allowing them to capitalise on new trends and create a distinctive and elegant appearance.
With a mixture of contemporary designs and patterns, inspired by the flowing, dynamic shapes of the natural elements, HIF-Finesse offers eleven embossed MDF panels which are supplied with their own unique textured finish and are held in stock in the UK.
HIF-Finesse is also available in curved panels, with a matching range of edging and in profiles and thicknesses from 1050 x 2450 x 18/21mm, 635 x 2450 x 21mm, 1270 x 3135 x 21mm, depending on the pattern.
