Our luxurious finishing surfaces, together with the whole concept of refacing rather than replacing kitchen and bathroom fittings, represent the very essence of ‘green’ thinking. Our use of sustainable raw materials, energy- and resource-efficient production methods, and our highly distinctive installation techniques enable genuine savings on the earth’s valuable resources, every step of the way. So with Granite & TREND Transformations, you not only save money on makeovers, you help save the planet too.
Why reface rather than replace? Well apart from the savings you’ll make by not ripping out cabinet carcasses and stripping off old tiles, refacing cuts the amount of builder’s waste that would otherwise go to landfill, by as much as 75%. Our distinctive slimline materials are specifically designed to fit neatly over existing surfaces, eliminating demolition, debris and additional reinforcement.
Our Origina™ worktops are made in resource-efficient plants that are ISO accredited for outstanding environmental management standards. Our slimline granite, quartz and recycled glass and porcelain worktops are lighter and easier to ship and do not need extra structural adjustment. Whilst our replacement doors are produced using renewable energy sources, highly efficient computerised techniques and raw materials from well-managed commercial forests in line with FSC and PEFC.
All of our worktops and mosaic tiles are made with a high content of post-consumer recycled raw materials, reaching levels as high as 78%. We pioneered the use of recovered kerbside material, typically used wine, beer and mineral water bottles, in our recycled glass surfaces, while our natural granite and quartz is salvaged from quarrying sites, eliminating unnecessary waste at source.
Once installed in your home, you will wish to be certain that our work surfaces and mosaic tiles do not give off harmful emissions. After all, we spend up to 90% of our time indoors, so the quality of air we breathe is important. So be reassured that our materials are Greenguard and Greenguard Children & Schools certificated, ensuring they emit no dangerous VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and guarantee the quality of your indoor air.
