Helpful Answers To Most Common Questions

Can't find the answer to your question? Then contact us.

How is Velstone different from other solid surface materials?

Velstone offers several advantages over other solid surface materials:

  • Highest fire ratings: Class ‘0’ as per BS476 Part 6 and Class ‘1’ as per BS476 Part 7.
  • Custom colours and sizes at no extra charge.
  • High impact resistance and durability.
  • Wide range of thickness options: 13mm and 25mm.

Can your solid surfaces be used for exterior applications on cruise ships?

Yes, Velstone surfaces are suitable for exterior applications provided they are correctly installed. They have been tested for simulated outdoor exposure. However, as with all polymer-based products, it's important to consider the effects of prolonged sun exposure over time.

Are your solid surfaces easy to clean maintain?

Absolutely. We understand that cruise ships are a confined space, and germs can spread quickly, and the last thing you want is for passengers to be confined to their rooms. Velstone surfaces are non-porous and resistant to stains, making them very easy to clean. For normal cleaning, a simple wipe with soap and water is sufficient. For more stubborn stains, specialist cleaners can be used. The surfaces are also repairable, ensuring long-term use. Any damages or scratches can be easily repaired on-site, maintaining the pristine look of the surfaces for years.

Do your solid surfaces meet fire safety standards?

Our surfaces meet the rigorous fire safety standards required for cruise ships. They have been tested and certified to possess the highest fire ratings, ensuring the safety of passengers and crew.
