GETALIT'S UNIQUE PROPERTIES

In follow up to the recent addition of Westag product ‘Getalit’ to our range we would like to take this time to discuss just some of its beneficial qualities such as:

  • Unique 4.1m length with 5 width options available for purchase,
  • Light fastness, steam and abrasion resistance (manufactured to the European EN 438 standard),
  • Heat resistance up to 230°C,
  • And, anti-bacterial properties that inhibit or kill the growth of microorganisms (tested to the JIS Z 2801 international standard)

Kitchen worktops are one of the most commonly purchased household goods and are an everyday part in the lives of the homeowner. Getalit’s individual 4.1m length in comparison to standard 3m production by other manufacturers results in better return on investment. As well as giving extra error space for cut off, this larger surface suits both commercial spaces and larger kitchen areas with seamless joins [*splashback and breakfast bar accompaniments also available].

Suited to those searching for a luxury and contemporary feel, Getalit’s European flair and German precision instantly transforms the appearance of any kitchen. With various marble, stone and wood effects available as well as Light fastness, steam and abrasion resistance, this range is a sound investment for any buyer.

The resistance of colours to fading, changing shade or darkening under the influence of light (independently of the direct influence of weathering) as well as the ability of the adhesive to resist wearing due to contact with another surface are key to the durability of the product.

As well as this endurance against wear and tear, our Getalit range is also heat resistance up to 230° - preventing inevitable ring burns by cooking tools. However we would not recommend being overly careless with pots and pans!

Also unique to Getalit are its anti-bacterial properties. The JIS Z 2801 method tests the ability of plastics, metals, ceramics and other antimicrobial surfaces to inhibit the growth of microorganisms or kill them. The procedure is very sensitive to antimicrobial activity and has a number of real world applications anywhere from the hospital/clinical environment to a household consumer company concerned with the ability of a material they have to allow bacterial growth. Antibacterial properties are important for decorative laminates because these laminates are used as kitchen tops and counter tops that may be in constant contact with food materials and younger children. Antibacterial properties are there to ensure that bacterial growth is minimal.
