Apollo® Quartz work surfaces are made from 93% quartz and the remaining 7% polymer resin.
Apollo® Quartz has the look and feel of granite but provides a much more consistent and solid colour for your kitchen worktop, without the need for periodic sealing or polishing. Apollo®Quartz worktops are an engineered stone that is both beautiful and elegant with attributes of natural stone with enhanced colours and impact including mirror flecks, natural stone appearances and modern concrete colour options.
Our luxurious quartz work surfaces are made to measure and installed by our expert fitters at factory-direct prices, straight from our workshop in Newbury, Berkshire.
Please contact our Sales office for more information.
Corian Edge Details
The edge detail can completely change the appearance of worktop finishes, although the more complicated the detail, the more the cost will be as a result of the additional work that has to be done, as this is very skilled and labour intensive.
A Double Bevel Edge is included in the linear metre price of a worktop, but all other edges carry an additional charge.
Birds Beak and Milano edges are only available in 20/20mm, whilst Venetian is only available in 30/30mm
* Require scribed joint
† Extra charge added for these edge details
The very latest in manufacturing technology enables us to offer worktops with a downturn of 60-100mm in a limited range of colours.
* Internal profile edges on all edge detail other than bevel edge must have a radius of at least 60mm. Bevel edges don’t have this constraint as they are hand finished.
The normal joint for these materials will be a butt joint ending with a 5mm overhang.
Upstands should ideally be 100mm high, as material less than this height is extremely fragile. Upstands are not normally cut from the same slab as the work surfaces, therefore an exact colour match is not possible. Granite upstands are straight and rigid, gaps will be visible where there are variations in the wall profile. Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the work surface installation.
Coved Corian® upstands are manufactured by machining a 3mm rebate in the Corian®, as this is achieved by hand held router, which only cuts in a straight line.
We will endeavour to keep as close as possible to the line of the wall but there may be gaps of between 2mm and 4mm at the back of your worktop.
Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the work surface installation.
A minimum of 120mm is required between two hob cutouts.
A minimum of 50mm from the hob or sink cutout to the front edge.
A minimum of 70mm is required between two sink cutouts.
The compulsory method for installing square hobs is the high-strength cutout patented by Dupont™. Hobs must be integrated into a Corian® work surface, according to specified guidelines.
A minimum of 50mm is required from the cutout to the front edge
A minimum of 120mm is required between heated cutouts.
A minimum of 50mm is required between sink cutouts.
5 groove drainer or 3mm recessed drainer available. Recessed Drainers are sometimes duller than the work surface.
Corain Drainer Grooves
Please specify the preferred undermounting of stainless steel sinks.
Silicone sealant my be rendered ineffective when plumbing the sink in, it is important that the sink is re-sealed by the plumber, or the 12 months guarantee will be invalid.
* Type A, B & C have a 1 – 5mm gradient
† Type D, E are flat with 3mm flat
†† Type F is flat with a 3mm recess
A small amount of standing water will be retained in drainer grooves, after the majority of the water has drained away, this should be wiped clear to avoid water residue marking the work surface.
*Dark heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, wear and tear more readily than light or textured colours and should not be used in high traffic areas (these colours require a disclaimer form to be completed)
