Solid Surface Counters and Technology

Such solid surface counters are made from special polymer blends that have only been made possible through recent technological breakthroughs in the plastics industry.

This creates some exciting possibilities.

Solid surface counters can now form an integral part of a sink, washbasin or tub and more. There's virtually no limit to the shape or depth to which these materials can be crafted.

It is particularly easy to create a tailored look, and both these products come in a very wide range of colors.
