A hard wood worktop is a beautiful piece of furniture which not only sets off a kitchen, giving it an appearance and feeling of opulent beauty, but can last a lifetime with the simplest care.
The hardwood panel is produced from good quality timber whilst being environmentally friendly. Hard wood worktops are made with the latest equipment and are kept right up to date with a continuous policy of upgrading machinery and production methods. A careful monitoring process takes place from arrival of the raw materials to the final production of the board. All glue conforms to BS EN 204 D3, with Iroko being D4. It also conforms to low formaldehyde requirements.
Guidelines for Good Use
We have summarised a few simple guidelines that need to be observed if the Hard Wood worksurfaces are to give a lifetime of good service.
- Always mop up spills of water and other liquids straight away. Do not allow liquids to stand for any period of time. (The finishing oil is water resistant, not water proof)
- Always use panstands and trivets to protect the timber from rough, hot, wet and dirty pots and pans. Direct contact from iron, steel or copper vessels can also stain the timber surfaces.
- Always use cutting boards to chop and slice food upon. Do not cut directly onto the surfaces.
- Clean the tops with a sparing amount of water, a drop of washing up liquid and a well wrung cloth.
