IDS has added Zenith solid compact laminate to its portfolio, following its appointment as a UK distributor by Wilsonart, and the company will exclusively stock the brand’s full range of decors. Zenith’s 20 designs, available on eight solid colour cores, will be available for delivery in 24-48 hours from all 18 IDS branches nationwide. The brand is said to complement IDS’s worktop portfolio, which also includes laminate, solid surface and solid wood.
Zenith offers an ultra-slim 12.5mm-thick worktop designed to provide a realistic and cost-effective alternative to natural stone, with no lead times for templating and specialist installation. Hardwearing with a solid-core composition, Zenith is described as waterproof and antibacterial, and features a consistent colour all the way through. Its double-sided decorative finish offers the flexibility for use with undermount sinks and for cutting into bespoke shapes to create matching shelves and sills.
The range includes five marble designs and six concrete décors. Worktops are available in two sizes of 3050 x 610 x 12.5mm and 3050 x 650 x 12.5mm across specific décors, and matching upstands, breakfast bars and splashbacks are also available.
Ian Holmes, worktops director at IDS, said: “The solid compact laminate worktop market is continuing to grow as people recognise that it offers all the benefits of a premium worktop, with a price point closer to traditional laminate. We’re delighted to be appointed the exclusive distributor of the full Zenith range as its breadth and quality, and availability of eight core colours, vastly expands our solid compact laminate offer.”
IDS will be promoting the Zenith POS package, which includes a product brochure and countertop display stand with samples. Zenith offers a 10-year warranty and is available from IDS for nationwide delivery in 24-48 hours.
