At the Surface Design Show Parapan® will be showing cladding and columns.
A top favourite with award winning kitchen and bathroom designers Parapan® is now being used by innovative designers who are drawing on its unique properties to create distinctive and unexpected applications in the commercial and retail world.
Parapan®, a solid high gloss acrylic for vertical surfaces offers limitless possibilities for cupboards, drawers, islands, splashbacks and even wall cladding. Available in 2 thicknesses – 4mm and 18mm – it can be cut to size and thermoformed into any radius of curve.
For 2011 a new shade of Bordeaux is being introduced to the comprehensive palette of 22 UV stable shades that includes sophisticated neutrals and vibrant brights. The glossy colours are a perfect complement to other surfaces such as wood, stone and Corian®.
Waterproof, hygienic and easily repairable, Parapan® is extremely durable and dramatically more hard wearing than lacquer and other applied finishes.
The Surface Design Show takes place at the Business Design Centre, London from the 15th to the 17th Feb 2011.
