What makes your 25mm surfaces ideal for educational environments?

Velstone offers non-porous, easy-to-clean, and highly durable surfaces that are tailor-made for the demanding conditions of educational settings, from worktops, science labs, food rooms and reception areas.

Are your surfaces customisable in colour and finish?

Yes, we offer a wide range of colours and finishes, including custom options to match specific design themes, meaning each installation can be customised to suit any specific branding requirements of the institution to enhance the learning environment.

Why is the 25mm thickness important?

Our 25mm thick Velstone solid surface was specifically developed for laboratory worktops in educational and research facilities. Traditional solid surface laboratory tops are manufactured using 3-13mm thick solid surface material bonded on 25mm thick MDF, a process which is labour intensive and expensive. Our 25mm thick product does not need conventional fabrication or MDF support. Factory pre-finished and ready to install, our 25mm worktops are supplied at considerable cost savings.

Can your surfaces be used in high-traffic areas like school corridors and libraries?

Absolutely, the versatility and resilience of our surfaces are designed to withstand heavy use and remain visually appealing over time.

What is the warranty period for Velstone surfaces?

We offer a comprehensive 10-year warranty on all its solid surfaces for peace of mind.
