James Latham has expanded its solid surface offering to include both the Avonite® and STUDIO Collection® brands.
Designed and developed in the US by Aristech Surfaces LLC, these latest additions compliment perfectly Latham’s existing added-value product portfolio which has been developed with the specification market in mind.
With 65 striking colours in the range, Avonite® is the only product in the solid surface market made with a double-belt technology and a thermal cure, ensuring a series of benefits including: versatile product width, impeccable colour consistency and a better manufacturing precision with narrower thickness tolerance and eco-friendly manufacturing. It is used in architectural and design applications across numerous sectors including hospitality, retail, education, government, transportation, public and living spaces, healthcare and commercial workspace.
The STUDIO Collection® is a translucent, customisable ‘patented composite blend’, with 29 attractive designs in nine decorative colour groups: Venato, Recycled, Movement, Crystelles, Sea Glass, Element, Glass, Metallics and Petals. Most of these groups can be backlit with dramatic effect and are therefore perfectly suited for prestigious and high-impact applications for example reception desks and sales counters within retail or hospitality environments.
Rob Goodman, Solid Surface and Specification Manager, James Latham said, “Available in a wide range of striking designs and colours, both of these collections are highly customisable and can be tailored to almost any shape and any environment and they have really bolstered our solid surface offering.
“One of the things which makes these products especially appealing to the specification market is Aristech’s flexibility for supplying non-standard sheets for minimum order quantities in a variety of dimensions and thicknesses and I believe this will enable designers and specifiers to consider its use for more and more diverse applications.”
James Latham will be offering Avonite® sheets in 3, 6, and 12mm thicknesses as well as in customised sizes with widths up to 1524mm and lengths up to 5182mm allowing for more efficient production. The STUDIO Collection® is available in the following dimensions, 12mm thickness x 914mm length x 3048mm width.
