Egger

Egger

18mm thick MFC kitchen unit material

Colour matching to the chosen door style – Egger place a hugh emphasis on working with leading door suppliers, such as Second Nature and Multiwood to supply very accurate Cabinet Colours to match the full range of door styles.

This was highlighted perfectly in 2008 with the introduction of the know best selling Second Nature Broadoak Natural door. Egger worked closely with Second Nature and simultaneously launched the Natural Lancaster oak Cabinet colour Board.

Feedback from our customers regarding the colour matching is excellent and this greatly adds to the astheatics of the kitchen. Furthermore in certain door ranges, savings can be made as plant/clad on side panels are not essential. More Information is available regarding this on each individual door style section of the website.

Blum

Blum

Soft close hinges & drawer boxes

Reliability - We moved to using Blum as our Hinge and Drawer box supplier in 2007. Since the move we have not had one single problem reported with a hinge or drawer system.

The testing and quality of the Blum products are phenominal. We use the highest specification Blum clip top metal 110 deg door hinges with 3-way adjustment and soft close fitted as standard combined with Blum tandembox A design, twin walled metal solid drawer system with 16mm solid base and metal back incorperating full extension runners with intergrated soft close dampers.

Whilst many kitchen suppliers use blum due to the strength of the Blum brand name, very few use the higher specification hinges and drawer boxes used with all our units. All pan drawers are supplied 500mm deep for optimum storage.

Duropal

Duropal

Laminate worktops

Why Choose Duropal worktops - Duropal GmbH is part of the Pfl eiderer AG group (www.pfl eiderer.com), one of the worldwide leading manufacturersof engineered wood, surfaced finished products and laminate flooring.

Since 1958 Duropal has been a world leader in the manufacture of decorative high pressure laminate (HPL), and for over 40 years the best selling worktops have been manufactured from a dense wood particle board core, surfaced with a decorative high pressure laminate (HPL).

The majority of kitchens will continue to feature this type of worktop as it is easy to fit, durable and hygienic with many decor options available at a reasonable price.

Highly resistant

Melamine resin is the hardest of all synthetically produced organic materials. This is the reason for the high scratch and wear resistance of Duropal Worktops. The high impact resistance of the material is due to the elasticity of phenolic resin.

These properties also explain the high resistance of Duropal Worktops to chemicals and heat. Burning a cigarette on the surface of Duropal Worktops is one of the quality tests specified in BS/EN 438, which also determines all the other qualities important for the user.

Now it is designed to be good looking, even fashionable, as well as functional. And, options are much wider in terms of materials, colours, styles and formats. Franke is always at the forefront of design implementation in the manufacture of new models and materials.
