Gemini Solid Surface Design Options
Choose from different material thicknesses to give your kitchen worktops the exact look you require.
Gemini Solid Surface comes in two standard thicknesses; 24mm and 38mm. A 12mm solid Solid Surface sheet is used to build up the worktop thickness, with a moisture resistant MDF lattice subframe providing rigidity and stability. Gemini Solid Surface can also be specfied at deeper thicknesses on request.

Hob Cut Outs
All hobs will require a cut out into the worktop. Some models may be designed to fit flush with the worktop, in which case a rebated hob cut out is required. Hob bars and grooves help protect the worktops from extreme heat when a pan or pot comes straight off the hob.

Solid Surface worktops are made to your exact design, and so can incorporate any type of shaping to match the kitchen cabinets or create design features on your island or breakfast bar
It is increasingly popular to extend the worktops to create a breakfast bar or island overhang. This is a neat addition where you can create a bar seating area, increasing the social and practical space within the kitchen. There are some important features to consider to ensure that the worktops remain adequately supported as well as finished in the most suitable style.

Drop Down End Panels
Drop down end panels are a highly cost-effective way to make your kitchen stand out. Returning the Solid surface surfaces from the worktops down to the floor on the end of a run of cabinets or on a breakfast bar or island gives a fantastic desginer finish. Choose from different jointing finishes to create the perfect look and feel for your worktops.
Drop down end panels are decorative and not designed as structural support for your worktops. 24mm thick worktops must back onto a kitchen décor panel.

Upstands are an excellent choice for completing the design of the worktops, especially if you are planning on having painted walls behind the worktops. They will create a water tight barrier between the worktops and the wall finish, and provide an visually satisfying finish to the look of the worktops design.
Upstands can be specified from 50mm to 200mm height and have a maximum length of 3000mm without a joint. Upstands are 12mm standard thickness.
Where you have a hob or range cooker up against a wall, it is recommended that you have a splashback. The splashback is a piece of material that will typically reach the height of the extractor fan from the worktop above the cooking appliance. A splashback provides a hygienic and easy clean finsh to a high usage area of the kitchen.
If your splashback butts up against an extractor, then shaping may be required to create a perfect fit. If your extractor fits over the splashback then there may need to be small holes cut to allow for fixings. Splashbacks are 12mm standard thickness.
Wall cladding is a great way to add increased wow factor into your kitchen design. Wall cladding can be used to cover the whole area between the worktop surface and the wall cabinets, or could also go from floor to ceiling if you choose.
You can co-ordinate the colour of the cladding to match the worktop or alternatively choose a contrasting colour for added impact. Electrical socket cut outs can be specified to allow as many electrical socket connections as you require. Wall cladding is 12mm standard thickness.
Window cills typically offer the finishing touch to your kitchen project. They add the extra element of bespoke design, whilst also providing practical benefits of being easy to clean and maintain.
Window cills are 12mm standard thickness.
