When it comes to achieving stunning results with your kitchen and bathroom projects, three of James Latham’s most popular surface solutions offer Interior Designers, Architects and Installers working within this sector, almost limitless creative options.
Distributed exclusively in the UK and Ireland by James Latham, HI-MACS® solid surface is a highly versatile and extremely durable material which can be easily machined and thermoformed to almost any 3D-shape imaginable, offering endless design possibilities and producing a surface that is flowing, functional and visually seamless.
Even large-area installations have the appearance of a single application and this non-porous, completely smooth surface means that liquid penetration is practically impossible, making it completely sterile, easy to clean and repair – therefore creating the perfect base for germ-free areas.
One of the major attractions of HI-MACS® is the extensive choice of colours on offer. There are almost 100 in the portfolio, with sixty two of these being suitable for kitchen applications. Supplied in thicknesses of 12mm, 9mm and 6mm, the range now also includes 22 designs of sinks – available in over 60 colours.
Architects and interior designers will also be keen to know that the full range of HI-MACS® colours is now available for download in CAD software-compatible format by clicking on www.himacsuk.co.uk.
Latham’s highly popular range of Acrylic high-gloss panels, Deco Gloss, continues to grow and 2015 has seen a number of vibrant and exciting new colours - including metallic - added to the portfolio, many of them exclusive to James Latham.
The Deco Gloss range is perfect for bathroom and kitchen applications. All Acrylic panels are supplied complete with a protective film and as well as being highly durable, it’s easy to clean and has been UV tested.
Plus, because the panels are manufactured using a combination of the most advanced production technologies available as well as the latest generation of materials, the exceptionally sparkling finish of the surface is completely smooth, with no ‘orange peel’ effect.
Available in board sizes 1220mm x 2440mm and 3050mm x 1220mm and in thicknesses of 3mm up to 50mm, (off standard board sizes available on request) Deco Gloss also offers a range of matching edgings as well as high scratch-resistance on the TOPX range.
James Latham also offers Shinnoki 2.0, a range of ready to use veneered panels that are supplied already stained and lacquered, requiring no further finishing.
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 veneer faced-reverse. The veneers are mismatched, but stained and textured to create a consistent finish that shows the natural aspects and beauty of the species.
The extensive Shinnoki 2.0 range is supplied in designs which are completely in tune with current design trends within the kitchen and bathroom sector and includes matching realwood and ABS edge banding. The 17 designs are also supplied in separate 3-ply veneer sheets, perfect for curved surfaces as well as doors or other interior requirements.
The uniform quality and consistency of the Shinnoki 2.0 collection is exceptional. It enhances the natural beauty and lively appearance of real wood, both visually and to the touch and James Latham has already seen it make a big impact with its interior design customers in both the commercial and residential sectors.
