Lathams unveils exciting new surface solutions

James Latham has announced a number of new additions to its already extensive portfolio of innovative surface solutions, which are set to have a big impact - especially among Interior Designers and Architects.

Exclusive to James Latham in the UK, Allure is an exciting and contemporary range which, as well as six different types of truly unique, real stone laminate, includes an extensive palette of high-gloss bold and vibrant acrylic colours as well as a high-gloss wood grain.

There’s also a stylish mirror laminate as well as a choice of rough-cut and brushed oak, smoked and stained veneers.

Plus, there’s a range of eco-friendly reconstituted veneers in patterns such as Rosewood and Ebony, with its unmistakable very dark heartwood and characteristic streaks, giving the veneer a distinctive and striking appearance.

A totally original product, Valchromat is a coloured MDF in which the colour runs throughout the entire board. This is achieved by adding organic dyes and a specially formulated resin before pressing the panel.

With eight vibrant colours in the range, Valchromat is certain to be popular within the UK shop fitting and furniture manufacturing sectors where bold and impactful colours are part of the specification. Plus, it has been approved by the British Standards Association as safe to use in the manufacture of children’s toys.

Nevamar is a High Pressure Laminate suitable for use in hotels, restaurants and bars, airports, hospitals, retail shops and other commercial environments. It incorporates a unique, patented Armoured Protection (ARP) technology which stands up to more abuse than similar products. The result is an extremely hard-wearing decorative material that looks newer for longer which also makes it ideal for residential installations.

The Armoured Protection surface is engineered using aluminium oxide particles blended with clear resins. Together they form a protective layer that allows objects to slide over the laminate as if they were on ball bearings.

Unlike other laminates using overlays that can cloud the designs, ARP's patented process always allows the subtlety and depth of the decorative paper to show through. This dramatic clarity is never compromised by the surface protection during the serviceable life of the laminate.

Delivering dimension, depth and texture to an otherwise flat surface, HIF (Holz in Form) Finesse offers interior designers and architects in the shop fitting and commercial sectors an option which they have not had before, allowing them to capitalise on new trends and create a distinctive and elegant appearance.

With a mixture of contemporary designs and patterns, inspired by the flowing, dynamic shapes of the natural elements, HIF-Finesse offers eleven embossed MDF panels which are supplied with their own unique textured finish and are held in stock in the UK.

HIF-Finesse is also available in curved panels, with a matching range of edging and in profiles and thicknesses from 1050 x 2450 x 18/21mm, 635 x 2450 x 21mm, 1270 x 3135 x 21mm, depending on the pattern.

Chris Sutton, director of James Latham commented, “We have a history and expertise in bringing new and innovative products to the UK market and I’m certain that these latest additions will have a big impact within the A&D sector.”

He added, “James Latham now offers one of the UK’s widest ranges of innovative surface solutions, all available from one supplier, and directly from stock at all nine of our nationwide panel distribution sites.”
