Abet Laminati’s bright and bold Rosso high pressure laminate has been used in a children’s washing and breakout area at St Helen’s Catholic School in Essex.
Local architects SK Architects installed the laminate as part of a first floor extension that included six new classrooms, a studio and a central breakout area. The extension doubled the school’s capacity and was designed to be bold and bright.
Benchmark FF&E Solutions was employed to create the scallop-shaped wash and utility stations which were moulded around yellow columns housing sun pipes.
The bright red Rosso colour was used in a high gloss HR-LAQ finish, cladding the sides of the stations while compact grade was placed on the top, creating an attractive appearance that is high performance. In addition, the compact grade was carefully routered out on the surface to allow for under cabinet sinks and drainage lines to be created.
HR-LAQ is a high gloss finish available in 28 bold and bright colours and has a unique finish that comes from a unique formula applied to the surface layer that can maintain the level of glossy shine. In addition, it also offers long tide cycle performance in terms of durability, scratch and impact resistance, ideal for heavy use environments.
Abet Laminati’s compact grade High Pressure Laminates is also popular for use on lockers, table tops, vanity units and cubicles. The laminates provide tactile, hardwearing and attractive surface finishes as well as excellent resistance to impact, scratches and abrasion.
The compact grade is the ideal choice for areas prone to high moisture and humidity due to it’s solid core construction in 6mm, 10mm and 12mm thickness, as there is no risk of peeling, cracking or de-lamination. Also, the fully self-supporting boards are also easy to work with for cutting and fabrication.
All European and British performance standards for resistance to wear, heat, moisture, impact and scratching are met or exceeded with all Abet Laminati Collections. Where high quality performance and design can be carefully crafted together, the collection is often used to create an attractive visual experience.
