What can be made from Solid Surface?
22nd August 2018

The answer is, within reason, anything!

Solid Surface, by its very composition is the ideal material for so many types of application.

How long will my order take?
16th August 2018


As everything we make is handcrafted and made to measure, there is no such thing as a typical lead time, however, as we evaluate each project on its merits as this can be influenced by a number of factors such as:

· Material type and colour chosen.
 

· What is to be produced- reception desk, teapoints, kitchen tops, walling, bars etc
 

· Are sinks required?
 

· Is thermoforming for curved shapes and sizes required?
 

· What is the size of the project (number of floors/kitchens etc),
 

· How much material will be needed?
 

· Stock availability of the material chosen.
 

· What time frame are you aiming for?



We will take all of these into consideration and respond with a realistic and truthful answer so you, and we, can plan your project appropriately.



Please take a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com where you can discover more about us, projects we have been involved with and the materials we offer.


These include Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat, Avonite and Tristone as well as the other major brands of Solid Surface, all of which we are pleased to include in our portfolio of materials.

Another very frequently asked question!
3rd August 2018

Can I have a price per Square Metre?
 

Because everything we produce is bespoke, we quote each project on the merits of the work involved, for example,
 

· Which material and colour has been selected?
 

· Type of application- teapoints, reception desks, curved walling etc?
 

· Are sinks required?
 

· Is thermoforming for curved shapes and sizes required?
 

· Are upstands wanted, if so what type?
 

· What is the size of project, how much sheet will be needed?



All fabricated items start from sheets of material which we procure from the supplier.


BSF will then hand craft your item according to your specific requirements.

#There are no stupid questions – part 4

· How long do Solid Surface items take to install?
 

When on site, we endeavour to cause as little disruption as possible. The time we take installing depends entirely on what we are fitting and the site conditions we encounter, there is no “rule of thumb” as everything we manufacture is bespoke and made to clients’ requirements. We try to minimise the time it takes to install when on site, by preparing the counter tops in our factory and will always endeavour to cause as little disruption as possible.




 

· Is Solid Surface suitable for doors and walling?
 

Yes, of course! It can be used, within reason, for whatever the client would like. We have manufactured and installed walling for various areas, including feature walls, showers and kitchens, as well as fabricating doors to match counter tops.


 

· Can Solid Surface delaminate?
 

The answer is no, it cannot. The material is entirely non-porous liquids are not absorbed and can be wiped away. The material is 12mm thick, bonded to a moisture resistant substrate, made up to the required thickness, making it totally impervious to liquids.
 

Please do take a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com for more about us, our work and the materials we offer. These include Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat and the other major brands of Solid Surface, all of which we are proud to include in our portfolio of materials.
 

If you are interested in talking to us about your projects, or need some advice, literature or samples, please get in touch with us on 01277 263603 or drop us a line to info@bsfsolidsurfaces.com.


#There are no stupid questions – part 3
3rd July 2018

· Does Solid Surface need to be specially sealed?
 
Unlike natural stone, marble, concrete or granite, Solid Surface does not need to be sealed as it is a non-porous, stain resistant material. This makes an attractive, low maintenance, surface choice.



 
· What do you mean by template or survey?

 
A template/ survey is when we come and site measure the area where the fabricated items (worktops, reception desks etc) are going to be situated. It is at this point that we note down wall/floor tolerances, cutouts, positions of hobs/monitors etc to make sure that the finished item/s fit correctly into the allocated space.



 
· Can I have quote over the phone
 
We prefer not to offer a price over the phone as there can be too many variables when quoting a bespoke Solid Surface item. We would normally request a drawing, not matter how rough it is, so that we can be sure that our interpretation meets your requirements. We endeavour to turn prices around as promptly as possible.

Please do take a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com for more about us, our work and the materials we offer. These include Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat and the other major brands of Solid Surface, all of which we are proud to include in our portfolio of materials.

#There are no stupid questions part 2

25th June 2018

Below are a few more examples of questions we get asked on a regular basis

· What do you mean by a coved upstand?
 

Solid Surface can be worked so that the counter top curves upwards into the wall, leaving nowhere for crumbs, dirt, liquids etc to gather


 

· What do you mean by three dimensional thermoforming?
 

Solid Surface, due to its chemical composition, can be heated and manipulated into curves and shapes, we do this using our multi therm platten oven and bespoke 50 tonne, water cooled press.



 

· Where can I see it?


 

Anywhere and everywhere is the answer. Solid Surface is so versatile you will have seen it in all manner of places from restaurants, bars, fast food restaurants, museums, hotels and sports stadiums. The palette of colours is so wide and varied that it lends itself to a huge number of design applications.



 

· Can I have a price per Metre Square?
 

As each item we produce is bespoke and unique to the design, we cannot offer prices per metre square or linear metre. Each project has its own special considerations and, therefore, any queries can be addressed personally to ensure that we offer our most competitive prices as expediently as possible.
 

Please do take a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com for more about us, our work and the products we are proud to include in our portfolio of materials- Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat and all the major brands of Solid Surface.

What’s so special about Solid Surface?

8th June 2018

We, at BSF Solid Surfaces are biased, as we believe the products we offer are, quite simply,
the best in the market place, but the question is why do we feel so passionately about fabricating from Solid Surface material?

Solid Surface material has been around for quite some time and has proven to be amongst the most diverse and versatile of materials. It can be used for a multitude of applications, in a wide variety of places.

We, here at BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd, have seen Solid Surface used for what you might expect, reception desks, kitchen counter tops, vanity units, tea points, but we have also been involved with projects that have included dance floors in nightclubs and bars, the Propeller Walling Feature at Forbury Place, as well as for DJ booths, table tops and the huge great sign next to the M4.

We love Solid Surface for its durability. It has the ability to be thermoformed into amazing shapes, cleaned so that the stains are eradicated and includes a wide range of colours, with enough choice to satisfy most designs.

The material is clever and elegant, because it is equipped with so many advantages, which is why we enjoy working with Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat and the other major brands of Solid Surface.

Take a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com where you can see more examples of why Solid Surface is a fantastic product and why you should give it a second glance.

Why and how do we template?

Templating is required to ensure that fabricated items will accurately fit into the area allocated for them. At this stage we have the opportunity to discuss and offer advice to our customers.
Templating an item before fabrication will ensure that errors are captured before build and minimise the work required at installation,
in turn reducing the inconvenience to the customer.

Whichever solid surface material you choose, Corian, Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex, Durat etc BSF ‘s templating procedure will remain the same, utilising the best equipment for the job. We use a Prodim to digitally template as well as laser templating, or using hardboard and a tape measure.

Once we have surveyed a job, we will transfer the information collated and produce a drawing, which the client then reviews and either makes changes, or signs to indicate their acceptance that our interpretation of their requirements is correct.
This is then issued to our Works Manager for production.

For more information about us and how we work please feel free to look further at our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com,
email us to info@bsfsolidsurfaces.com or give us a call on 01277 263603.

10th May 2018

BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd is a member of the Corian Quality Network of Fabricators,the LG Hi Macs Quality Club and the Approved Fabricator Lists for Staron, Hanex, Avonite and Durat.

Why should you choose Solid Surface over other surface options for your interiors?

26th April 2018

Solid Surfaces such as Corian, LG Hi Macs, Staron, Hanex and  Durat  are not new products to the market place, however, sometimes the extent of their potential as a material to choose is not recognised. So why opt for a Solid Surface over other hard surface choices such as marble, granite, engineered stone, stone and wood?

                                            1.       Solid Surfaces can be seamlessly jointed, so that any joins are inconspicuous.

                                            2.       Resilient and durable

                                            3.       Non Porous.

                                            4.       Does not need sealing

                                            5.       Environmentally friendly

                                            6.       Homogenous- consistency of colour throughout the sheet and cannot delaminate.

                                            7.       Versatile – can be machined and shaped into almost any design- we at BSF have the ability to thermoform three dimensionally creating even greater possibilities.

                                            8.       Temperature resistant

                                            9.       Hygienic as the materials are impervious to germs and liquid, making them easier to keep clean.

                                           10.   Ideal for use anywhere- the home, the office, hospitals, schools, universities, the list is endless.

                                           11.   Covered by ten year warranty.

                                           12.   Attractive in appearance.

How Hygienic Is Solid Surface?
24th April 2018

As a non –porous material, Solid Surface is the ideal surface choice for areas where hygiene is of paramount importance eg hospitals, clean rooms and laboratories.


Being non-porous, it is also germ repellent, stain resistant and impervious to fluids, this makes it easy to keep clean and perfect for maintaining a sanitary environment. Bacteria, mould and mildew cannot grow on it, therefore, preventing the spread o infection. In addition, as it can be seamlessly jointed, there is much less likelihood of water ingress and other fluids or foodstuffs contaminating the area.

If you would like to know more please feel free to send an email to nicola@bsfsolidsurfaces.com, phone us on 01277 263603, or visit the rest of our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com

We are 20!!
17th April 2018


BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd is 20 years old!




Following their twenty years working in the Shopfitting Industry, in 1998, our founders, David and Elizabeth Bailey, went to Las Vegas for the first ISSFA Convention.

They were so inspired by what they learnt that they subsequently decided to start a business solely dedicated to the fabrication of Solid Surface.

                 Over the years Solid Surface has proved to be a popular material amongst many diverse industries and is still proving it can stand the test of time. 

We work with the most established brands including
Corian, H Macs, Staron, and Hanex

We have been incredibly fortunate to have been involved with some prestigious, exciting and interesting projects, including the Chicago Rock Cafe Rollout, The Museum of the King of Bahrain, The Francis Crick Institute, NAPP Pharmaceuticals and McAfee.

We still get inspired and excited by projects 20 years on and would welcome your enquiries and designs to get involved with.

Please do have a look at our website, www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com and get in touch with us on 01277 263603 or email us to info@bsfsolidsurfaces.com



Worktops Scratch!

9th April 2018

Worktops scratch, any worktops from any material!

This statement includes Solid Surfaces such as Corian, H Macs, Staron, Hanex….as well as wood, granite, marble, stainless steel, laminate, quartz, engineered stone......no surface is indestructible!

When choosing your work surface don’t be fooled into believing that Solid Surface is much softer than granite and therefore scratches more readily. Yes it is true that granite is a harder product, however, the real beauty here is if you scratch granite that really is it. If you scratch Solid Surface as it’s a repairable material, it can be fixed, within reason, to look as good as new.

It is important to understand and listen to advice when choosing a colour. Although each Solid Surface manufacturers utilise their own production processes, each colour they produce will come through the same manufacturing process – some colours are more suitable for high traffic areas as they are more forgiving than others – the darker colours just show up the marks more easily than other, lighter colours, or those with a lot of particulates, they are not softer than the others. There are care and maintenance guidelines provided by all the leading manufacturers - please click on the links to see the advice offered : CD UK - Corian Care and Maintenance and LG Hi Macs Care and Maintenance.

My kitchen counters are black with a lot of particulates, if you look very closely you may see “skate marks”, not unlike those seen on a dark car. I say if you look very closely because if you just look normally, you would never notice them.


 

In fact, Solid Surface is like a fine wine, getting better with age if cared for correctly, unlike other surface choices.

If you would like to know more about this, please feel free to give me a call on 01277 263603 email us info@bsfsolidsurfaces.com or visit the rest of our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com

What do we mean by bespoke?
3rd April 2018

We talk a lot about bespoke fabrication of the products we offer, this is because everything we manufacture is handcrafted to specific sizes and shapes, even items produced for rollouts are treated as if they are one of a kind and manufactured by hand.

                               We are proud to fabricate from Solid Surface material due to the flexibility and freedom to produce anything, within reason, that a customer desires

As a Quality Network Industrial Partner of Corian, a Quality Club Member of LG Hi Macs and an Approved Fabricator of Staron and Hanex we can offer a wide range of decors, which can then be made into anything that the customer wants,

We offer a HUGE choice of decors for any project!


 

 

We offer a HUGE choice of decors for any project!

A challenge for any project is to decide on the right décor for the design, especially for counter surfaces, reception desks, troughs and vanities, as these areas are often prominent and used frequently.

Because we work with a variety of materials, including CorianHi Macs,  StaronHanex,Durat etc we are confident that there will be something that is appropriate for you. There are colours which have been produced to offer an alternative to concrete which seems to be the current in-vogue material. There are also finishes with veined and marble effects, which have been produced to resemble marble and granite.

If you would like to receive any samples of colours you are interested in, please feel free to get in touch by sending an email to nicola@bsfsolidsurfaces.com, or phone us on 01277 263603, and we can organise these for you. You will then be able to see for yourself how perfect they might be for your project, which coupled with the benefits of using Solid Surfaces, make them the perfect surface solution. For more information please have a look at our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com or take a look at our company Linkedin and Facebook pages. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
 


How Do I Get An Estimate?


 

 


How Do I Get An Estimate?

If you would like an estimate for your project , your first port of call should be to contact us!!

You can do this via email nicola@bsfsolidsurfaces.com or info@bsfsolidsurfaces.com,  give us a call on 01277 263603, visit our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com where, for your convenience, there is an online form that can be completed, or visit our LinkedIn and Facebook pages.

Because we offer a completely unique and bespoke service, every project is priced individually according to what you, our customer, desires. Therefore, we ask for you to provide drawings and dimensions, with as much information as possible, i.e colour, brand, sizes, location etc. We are then able to provide you, with as accurate a quotation as possible, avoiding any miscommunication later on.  In order to assist you with making your choice, we can also provide samples and literature.

This is our stance for each and every one of the Solid Surface options we offer which include CorianHi MacsStaronHanex etc).

We look forward to hearing from you when a project that requires Solid Surfaces lands on your desk. 



How Do I Clean Solid Surface?

                    




So, did you know that Solid Surface is relatively low maintenance, compared to other hard surfaces? This is true of all the Solid Surfaces we supply (CorianHi MacsStaronHanex etc).

Because it is non porous, stains are surface stains only and can be cleaned using most household cleaners. In our experience using any household cleaners with or without bleach, will remove stains quite easily, that’s not to say you don’t need elbow grease, but with the use of a kitchen sponge or brush, stains should easily be removed. This includes red wine, turmeric and beetroot, stains that normally instil fear in even the hardiest of us.  For more stubborn stains, you can use a product called Bar Keepers Friend (or similar ) , which is a light powder cleaner, containing bleach, which can be rubbed over the surface and if necessary, left to soak.  We do not recommend the more abrasive powder cleaners, as these could, potentially, dull down the finish of the top, which can be revived, but causes unnecessary extra work and adds cost. 

This ability to bring the surface back to its original appearance, after usage, is another advantage to be considered when making surface choices.

If you would like to know more please feel free to send an email to nicola@bsfsolidsurfaces.com, phone us on 01277 263603, have a look at either our company LinkedIn and Facebook pages, my LinkedIn page, or visit our website www.bsfsolidsurfaces.com
 


Solid Surface Is Seamless!


So, another fact you may, or may not know about Solid Surface! It can be fabricated, seamlessly into any number of wonderful shapes and sizes.

This is true of all the Solid Surfaces we supply (CorianHi Macs, StaronHanex etc).

Wow! The sheet material itself is sent into us in large sheets, which we then cut, shape, thermoform and seam using the specialist techniques and tooling of our trade. We manipulate into your bespoke, handcrafted designs, making it  suitable for just about any application you might desire.

These two photo’s demonstrate this perfectly:

Did you know that Solid Surface is non porous, meaning that stains and germs cannot penetrate its’ surface. This is true of all the Solid Surfaces we supply (CorianHi Macs,StaronHanex etc).

If cared for and cleaned properly, the growth of mould, mildew, bacteria and other nasty things can be avoided, unlike other surface choices. Counter tops can be made as one seamless piece, with a choice of integrated sinks and coved backsplashes, therefore, there are no dirt traps and they are easier to keep clean and are perfect for areas where hygiene and cleanliness are of importance. Crucially, this makes them low maintenance, and very easy to keep clean.

What Is Solid Surface??


Following all the questions we regularly receive regarding Solid Surface, we have decided we are going to produce regular “Snippets” of information answering these questions, starting with the most obvious.

What Is Solid Surface?

Ok, I’m not going to bore you with a load of technical information about what Solid Surface is.

Quite simply, it is an advanced, composite blend of natural minerals and acrylic and/or polyester polymer dependent on the brand you select. This creates a man made, stone-hard surface, that can be manufactured into counter tops, reception desks, vanity tops and many, many, many other applications, the list of potential uses for Solid Surface is limited only by the imagination.
