Designer Lapitec Worktops
Lapitec is an Italian designer stone, formed through a recreation of the natural metamorphosis process. This process creates a sintered stone, a unique product which possesses the properties of other popular natural stones that we supply such as granite and quartz. Lapitec’s unique creation process makes it totally resistant to scratches, scrapes, and impacts from dropped pots and pans, so it’ll always withstand the heavy use of the kitchen. It’s also resistant to temperature and weight; it won’t freeze or crack under pressure.
You’ll also find hygienic benefit with a Lapitec worktop; it’s both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, making it perfect for use in the kitchen. As long as it’s been wiped clean first, you could even eat straight off it with no ill effects – it’s that hygienic. If it gets wet, you don’t have to worry about any mould growing, and anything spilled onto the surface won’t be absorbed, so there’s no risk of stains from oil, wine or coffee.
Installing Your New Lapitec Worktops
If you decide on a lapitec worktop, we can begin the project with our specialist templating service. We’ll survey the area of your home that we’re working with, consulting with you at every step so that kitchen you have in mind becomes a reality.
Lapitec is one of the most workable worktops to install, being incredibly light, yet still stronger than natural stone. Our installation includes sealing, in which the surface is coated with a thin layer of sealant which prevents dirt, stains or food getting trapped in the stone and spoiling the appearance. Another advantage of lapitec is that it never needs to be resealed – it’s incredibly low maintenance, and easy to clean.
Sealing Your New Worktop
It’s always recommended to seal natural stone worktops, especially when they’re paler in colour, as it improves the look and maintains a bright finish for a long time.
