|Tel||0161 436 6280|
Known for their innovation in sink and tap design, Franke has launched luxury worksurfaces in premium stainless steel, precision-made to any individual design.
Delivering impeccable aesthetics, the product range offers superior creative scope, with choices of PureSteel and Finesteel, several thicknesses from ultra-slim 4mm, six different finishes including the worldwide exclusive PearlFinish and extensive customisation with island units as large as 5m x 1.9m possible in a single element.
Worksurfaces are available with a choice of 20 sink options from the Franke Centinox, Kubus and Largo ranges and the KWC Zoe and Ono ranges. Any tap from the Franke and KWC ranges can be incorporated, as well as integrated gas burners for a completely customised look.
The PureSteel product is a strategic point of difference for the Franke range. Worksurfaces are available in solid stainless steel of 4, 6 and 8mm thickness and on-point for the design trend to solid and thin materials.
PureSteel is available with the highly innovative PearlFinish and boasts high value aesthetics. It is a unique glass ceramic coating with extremely high performance as it repels water, is anti-fingerprint, is heat resistant up to 300°C and is easy to clean. There are five other finishes of Band, Crystal, Diamond, Nature and Whirl.
FineSteel is available in a 1.2mm thickness in two finishes of Band and Whirl. The sheet metal is fabricated with a substrate and comes in standard thicknesses of 20, 30 and 40mm. Upstands, splashbacks and end panels are available with both PureSteel and FineSteel. The stainless steel material is guaranteed for ten years and installation for two years.
The worksurfaces are precision-manufactured in Franke factories with a template and install service provided by F Jones of Cleveland, a long-established UK company with expertise in the premium worksurfaces sector.
Franke is selectively building a network of premium retailers operating in the upper-mid to luxury sector, as well as targeting high end developers. A display and POS package is available, together with lifestyle brochures.
