COOLDELUXE THE EXTRA EFFICIENT PREMIUM CLASS All Neff appliances represent solutions that deliver clear, practical improvements and set industry standards for usability and economical use of resources. CoolDeluxe, the new generation of Neff built in refrigeration is a good example of this. The five new models (two fridges, two freezers and one fridge/freezer) demonstrate the company's quest for perfection in three areas - flexibility, optimal use of space and energy efficiency. These premium class appliances are packed with user benefits that are an invaluable aid to sales. At the heart of the CoolDeluxe series is the clever compressor unit solution. The state of the art variable output compressor as well as the condenser and ventilation technology has been neatly integrated into the base, rather than being mounted on the back. This results in more internal space. The bottom drawer is useable to its full depth, providing up to 95 percent more volume than previously - the equivalent of up to 16 one litre milk cartons.

Easy to fit, easy to plan Right: The fully integrated CoolDeluxe collection offers retailers valuable benefits in terms of design and trouble free installation. Fully integrated CoolDeluxe fridges and freezers can be installed side by side to provide a complete cooling centre that is packed with features. The innovative technology used to manufacture CoolDeluxe appliances opens up new possibilities for kitchen planning. Attractive high cabinet solutions can be implemented at eye level to render the refrigerator completely invisible because there is no need for an unsightly ventilation grill on top of the housing unit. Shown right, the K8345 combination fridge/freezer.

Above: All three CoolDeluxe fridges have a special VitaFresh compartment which keeps the temperature consistently slightly above 0oC and is independent from the rest of the fridge. VitaFresh has two areas - a wet and a dry zone. The dry zone operates at 50 percent humidity for fish and meat while the wet or moist zone operates at 90 percent humidity which extends the life of fruit and vegetables. In these conditions, nutrients and vitamins are preserved for longer. Due to an AirFresh filter within these zones the intermingling of smells is prevented.

Refrigeration that does more COOLDELUXE KEY FEATURES ● More capacity. Changes to fundamental design such as moving the condenser to the base of the unit have freed up valuable space for more interior storage in the CoolDeluxe range. As a result the K8315 fridge has a massive 306 litre capacity while the co-ordinating G8320 freezer holds 213 litres - 25 percent more freezing capacity than current built in models. ● Energy saving. All five models in the CoolDeluxe range boast top A ++ energy ratings which means that these appliances consume an amazing 45 percent less energy than those in energy class A.

Above: EasyLift shelf and door compartments make the interior of the fridge flexible and easy to organise. CoolDeluxe has innovative interior features such as transparent drawers on telescopic rails, deep door racks, variable compartments and the 26 litre Big Box in the freezer. Only Neff offers the SlideAway butter compartment which features a door that can be opened with one hand to slide into the area below for unobstructed access - just like Neff's SlideAway oven door. Another highlight is the modern multi tray bottle rack that allows bottles or eggs to be stored in the interior of the fridge rather than in the door. Just turn to the side needed - simple!

● Intelligent cooling system. Sensors on CoolDeluxe fridges and freezers sense when food is being loaded and adjust cooling power according to the amount of food inside and the temperature outside. This system is around 30 percent faster than on other models - ideal for storing or freezing down large amounts and saves energy. ● Dynamic cooling. This system provides an even temperature throughout the fridge - even when the door has been opened. ● Electronic touch control. All models provide precise temperature control. ● VitaFresh with humidity control. All the fridges include special VitaFresh compartments that work independently from the rest of the appliance. Set at 0oC, the compartment is made up of two zones - one at 50 percent humidity for meat and fish and one at 90 percent humidity to extend the life of salads, vegetables and fruit. Both zones are designed to preserve the nutrients and vitamins in stored food for up to three times longer. ● AirFresh Filter. The AirFresh filter in the VitaFresh compartment prevents smells from migrating into the rest of the fridge. ● LED interior lighting. LED lighting positioned at both sides and the front of the fridges keeps energy usage low while illuminating the whole interior in an even glow. Shelves are evenly lit so the user can see right to the back of the fridge even when it is fully stocked. LED lighting lasts for the lifetime of the appliance. ● Telescopic shelving. All the drawers in the fridges are on a telescopic FlexiRail shelving system - like the one used in top of the range Neff ovens. Drawers glide in and out easily, allowing easy access to food stored at the back - reducing wastage because items won't be forgotten. ● EasyLift shelves and SoftClose doors. The dual built in benefits of EasyLift shelves and SoftClose doors means that all appliances in the CoolDeluxe range have a streamlined appearance and excellent accessibility.

Above: The glass shelves and flexible door racks are fully adjustable with just one hand. Lighting is fully integrated into the side walls so long lasting, ultra bright LED's bathe the interior - including the bottom shelves and the VitaFresh zone - in a uniform, glare free light that is gentle on the eyes as well as providing a clear view of what is in the refrigerator.

● Two year free warranty. Like all Neff appliances, all five models in the CoolDeluxe range have a two year parts and labour warranty.

appliances Great design endures - and there's no better brand example of this than AEG-Electrolux. The company was founded in Germany over a century ago on the simple philosophy that everything designed by the company should be perfect in form and function. AEG-Electrolux today remains true to these early ideals. The AEGElectrolux built-in range has been created with premium kitchens in mind, featuring design that enhances the look of the kitchen teamed with high performance technology that meets the most uncompromising standards.

Create your own cooking centre Customers can choose a customised cooking centre using the co-ordinated 36cm wide Frontline Future hobs with Alutec™. This modular range of hobs and accessories has been designed with creative chefs firmly in mind. There's a wide choice of gas, induction and ceramic hobs to choose from including a teppanyaki, induction wok and a barbecue grill with lava stones. Each hob is finished with a stylish Alutec™ strip, which can be removed for cleaning or can be replaced with an optional stainless steel strip if wished. Sleek and stylish, the A+ rated AEG-Electrolux S75678SK1 fridge freezer fits beautifully into European kitchens thanks to its 60cm depth. Because this appliance is built in-situ, it is a great choice for homes where getting a one piece American style side by side fridge freezer into the property might prove difficult because of narrow doorways, stairs etc.

The AEG-Electrolux L6485OLE Super Eco washing machine was the 2010 winner of the KBB Review Industry Award for Environmental Innovation. The washing machine has 20 programmes including Super Eco which has set new standards in efficiency with energy savings of 83 percent against an easycare 40oC wash and a 72 percent saving against an easycare 30oC wash.

Induction with more The AEG-Electrolux MaxiSense HK953400FB induction hob has one of the largest induction areas on the market. The zones are flexible so you can put any size or number of pans anywhere on the hob as long as part of them covers one of the crosses. Sleek design with luxury bevelled edges gives this hob an elegant finish while the cutting edge induction system ensures that food is cooked speedily and evenly - making this the perfect hob choice for any discerning chef. For total control its Direktouch Controls allow direct access to the desired cooking level and a Stop+Go with Keep Warm setting make this one of the most highly featured hobs on the market.

FULL STEAM AHEAD

The B98205 multifunction steam oven from AEG-Electrolux combines true steam with multifunction cooking to offer the best of both worlds. On Vigorous Steam, the steam generator works at 96oC - perfect for cooking vegetables and fish and for reheating meals. On Interval Steam it alternates 25 percent steam and 75 percent hot air for roasting, baking and cooking complete meals. Interval Plus uses 50 percent steam and 50 percent hot air and is ideal for foods with a high moisture content and for reheating ready meals. The oven has all the functions you would expect on a premium multifunction oven including AVANTGARDE electronics. The system offers the latest in digital oven technology and includes advanced features such as automatic meat probe programmes, automatic cook by weight programmes, temperature proposal programmes, programmable recipes, memory functions, electronic temperature regulation and automatic recipes. The oven is A rated.

Designer style extractors, top of the range sinks - including a stunning combination of black glass and stainless steel, compact ovens packed with features, domino hobs, and full height cooling and freezing were just some of the exciting new products from CDA at KBB2010. These new introductions make the CDA range one of the most comprehensive on the market, offering retailers a wide spread of appliances, sinks and taps from budget to luxury. The Level 1, 2, 3 structure, which moves through from well equipped, competitively priced models to upmarket products packed with advanced features and the added benefit of a five year parts and labour guarantee, provides an easy, and accessible way for customers to trade up. All products are shown in a full colour brochure and CDA offers in depth sales and service support.

SINKS WITH STYLE This beautiful black glass and stainless steel KVL 12 sink is designed for use with a 600mm base unit and is available with right or left hand drainer. It comes with a glass chopping board. Made in 1mm heavy gauge high grade stainless steel, the new VSK 2 sink has a modernist geometric design. Optional accessories for this sink are a polyethylene chopping board and a colander. Pads beneath the sink reduce noise.

Hot news in induction The affordably priced Level 1 HCN610 induction hob has front controls, nine power levels, touch controls, residual heat indicators and a timer. CDA also offers larger 80 and 90cm induction hobs and a two zone modular induction hob.

Extra special extractors

Creative design with compacts Compact appliances that can be teamed together to create an appliance wall have become an increasingly popular option for consumers looking for style combined with the freedom of personal choice. Packed with cooking functions, the SV470 is a sophisticated nine function 45 cm deep oven that includes pyroclean - simply the easiest and best way to clean any oven interior. When pyro is selected, the oven door locks and the cavity heats up to 500oC for a selected time (depending on how dirty the oven is). This process reduces grease and burnt on spills to a fine ash that can simply be wiped away. The quadruple glazed door stays safe to touch during this process. The SV470 has three pyro levels to suit everything from light to heavy soiling. Other functions include conventional heat, defrost, fan assisted cooking, fan oven, fan with lower heat, fan with grill, grill and half grill. There’s also an easy to use auto cook system with 15 presets for cooking at the touch of a button. The oven has a 36 litre capacity, is A rated and is finished in stainless steel and black glass.

With 3000 outlets enjoying an annual turnover of £1.3billion, the UK is definitely in love with coffee. CDA’s new automatic built in coffee maker brings the barista experience home - and preparing the perfect cup couldn’t be easier. The machine uses fresh coffee to produce a long, normal or short drink and has a steam nozzle to whoosh up fabulously frothy milk for cappuccino. As the CVC10 uses fresh beans there’s no need to buy expensive (and sometimes hard to find) pods. Features include an adjustable grind setting, an electronic programmer with LCD display, low coffee and water indicators and a quick heat setting.

Fitted with professional style pull out wooden shelves and a UV protected smoked glass door, the FWV450 compact integrated wine cooler will keep 24 bottles in perfect humidity controlled cellar conditions. Temperature can be varied between 5-22oC to suit the wine being stored and is shown on an easy to read red digital display. The cooler has integrated LED interior lighting and is finished in stainless steel. Also new in compacts: the SV430 multifunction oven, the SV451 combination oven, microwave and grill and the unique FWV460 ice and chilled water dispenser.

Made from curved black glass combined with stainless steel, the 3C9’s minimalist styling is perfect for contemporary kitchens. Equipped with both touch controls and remote control, the extractor has three speeds plus intensive and is suitable for ducted and recirculating installation. The aluminium grease filters are washable and a filter saturation light shows when they need to be cleaned. Other features include a Clean Air function, 15 minute timer, halogen downlights and a twin fan motor. The extraction rate is 703m3/hr at a quiet 53dBA.

Designed to hang over the hob on suspension wires, the 3L9 designer extractor combines on trend looks with super efficient performance. Designed for recirculating installation only, the extractor has three speeds plus intensive, two LED down lights and two ambient lights to create a subtle glow in the kitchen, a Clean Air function and a 15 minute timer. It is operated by touch controls and is easy to maintain thanks to dishwashable aluminium grease filters. The extraction rate is 462m3/hr at 52dBA.

01949 862010 The impressive 3D9 downdraft extractor slides away beneath the worktop when not in use and rises again at the touch of a button.

Only products that meet these criteria receive the coveted Energy Saving Recommended seal of approval. Now officially kind to the environment than older, less efficient models, Lec's energy efficient appliances don't cost any more than lower rated counterparts but can provide consumers with savings of up to ÂŁ28 a year in energy costs as well as a reduced carbon footprint.

With a host of new products launched at KBB2010, including the stylish Adriatico granite sink, the contemporary RF700 stainless steel range and the modern RF31 tap, 2010 is proving to be an exciting year for Reginox. The company offers one of the largest sink collections available in the UK, including ranges manufactured in stainless steel, ceramic and granite, in a host of shapes, styles and designs to suit all tastes. The new models unveiled at KBB2010 have been introduced to meet the ongoing trend for clean and angular lines combined with soft edge design, and further key product launches are planned for later this year. Reginox firmly believes that its customer service is fundamental to the company's success and the last 12 months has seen the sales team further strengthened through the appointment of Lucy Pulham to the role of UK Developer Sales Manager.

The new RF31 lever tap is equipped with LEDs which help to create an eye catching effect by projecting a red or blue colour through the water to indicate temperature. The slimline curving spout provides a clean look and the single lever controls temperature and flow. A pull out spray is included for easy rinsing of pots and pans. Available in chrome, the RF31 is 395mm high and teams perfectly with the Texas sink range from Reginox. It is suitable for 0.2 bar pressure and above and retails from £422.

The Texas range of stainless steel sinks reflects the trend for deeper bowls featuring angular lines softened by subtle curves. Each of the sinks in the range features a small 10mm radius in each corner, resulting in a uniform and minimalist design that offers a clean and uncluttered look. Available in three sizes, Texas has an unusual square waste and overflow and is suitable for either undermounting or insetting. Retail prices start at £320. With angular sinks continuing to prove a popular choice with homeowners, Reginox has added the RF700S single bowl (shown) and the RG750S 1.5 bowl to the Ontario range. Both sinks feature the progressive geometric finish that has become synonymous with the Ontario range but have the advantage of a sleek, integrated stainless steel drainer. Sinks retail from £552.

Adriatico is the latest addition to the Regi-Granite range and will add a contemporary edge to any kitchen. Adriatico combines an angular bowl with a minimalist drainer featuring simple straight lines that perfectly complement the sink's understated design. Manufactured from Cristalite Granite, the sink is virtually impossible to scratch, highly resistant to impact damage and can withstand hot pans up to 230oC. Adriatico is available in Alaska, Croma, Colorado, Titanium and Onyx colourways and retails from £372.

DESIGNER ACCESSORIES Reginox has launched a stylish collection of optional accessories to complement its Texas, Ohio and Ontario designer sink ranges. Introduced to meet the growing customer demand for multi-functional wet areas, the accessories have been created with sophistication in mind and include a contemporary rectangular stainless steel colander, steel tray drainer, perforated tray and bamboo wood and glass cutting boards. Prices start at £53.

Alternatively see the website at www.blanco.co.uk Above: The groundbreaking IF flat edge sink concept launched by BLANCO to international acclaim and awards for design and technology fulfils a genuine need in the market. It appeals to consumers who are looking for an inset sink and like the sleek, streamlined IF design. The success of the IF's flat edge appearance - not just in terms of aesthetics but also because of its easy fitting (IF sinks are installed in the same way as standard insets) - has led BLANCO to increase the range for 2010. There are now 30 models including perennially popular favourites such as the Classic collection, now with IF options. Shown here is a closeup of the BLANCOCLASSIC 6S IF with the 1mm flat-edge profile.

Below: Among the latest IF models is the BLANCOAXIS, a new interpretation of the popular one and a half bowl sink. The BLANCOAXIS 6S IF has two capacious bowls and many practical accessories including the sliding safety glass chopping board and colander.

Above: BLANCO's revolutionary new sink material SILGRANIT® PURADUR® II goes from strength to strength. Easy to clean, hardwearing and with a satin smooth surface that looks and feels like natural stone, it repels water, preventing the build up of surface deposits, limescale and stains and the material is heat resistant to 280 degrees. It is also resistant to impact and scratching - metal marks from saucepans can be polished out. This outstanding performance coupled with a choice of ten non fading colours make sinks in SILGRANIT® PURADUR® a popular choice with consumers. Sinks are available in a wide variety of designs from undermounts to inset and modular versions.

Above: ZEROX and CLARON square sinks from BLANCO SteelArt meet the demand for stylish geometric design. Originally launched as undermounts, they are now also available with the IF concept while retaining the stylish square sink look.

A return to more traditional kitchen designs is marked by the introduction of a new Revival Shaker door for Mereway's English Revival range. Originally launched 12 years ago, the English Revival brand has remained popular and with traditional hand crafted designs enjoying a renaissance, Mereway Kitchens believes that the timing of this new range is perfect for the current market. Based on a brand new unit matrix which is similar to Mereway's main collection, the new range is stylish, easy to plan and includes a very good selection of unit sizes and types. It is available in Natural Oak and the same five popular painted colours as the Lincoln Collection. A Ready to Paint option is also offered for customers who want to use their own colours. Featuring delicate 78mm stiles and a beaded profile on all frames, the new Shaker design combines quality with elegance. Solid 19mm glued and dowelled cabinets and the addition of solid timber dovetail drawer boxes all go into presenting an exceptional product range that is built to last. Timber drawers are often seen as the signature of a quality inframe kitchen and are used on the new Shaker design. "This will be the first in our English revival range to feature solid timber dovetail drawers as standard as well as the latest fully adjustable soft close runners," comments Ginette Crowther, Marketing Manager for Mereway Kitchens. "Featuring almost as many unit options as our main collection we believe that our new Shaker range provides a far greater selection of cabinet choices than many other in-frame suppliers. This allows designers to create a truly bespoke looking kitchen with freestanding pieces - or they can opt for a more contemporary fitted design." The new Shaker is just the first in a broader collection of in-frame products that Mereway Kitchens will be adding to the English Revival range in the next 12 months.

Integrated doors allow the use of full width storage mechanisms for concealed waste bins, wine racks, wire shelving and many other storage solutions.

Capacious and eminently practical, the 1000mm larder unit can be tailored to complement a classic or contemporary kitchen by selecting glass or solid timber doors at the top and a wine rack, stainless steel baskets or wicker baskets in the base. Trim with full height Shaker style wooden pilasters in a Natural Oak or painted finish.

Even the larger pan pullout drawers are created from solid timber and can be fitted with an oak plate insert with timber dowels for effective crockery storage. The new Shaker door is in natural oak and features a solid wood frame and veneered centre panel. This in-frame style design is an excellent choice for the semi-bespoke end of the market.

Mark David is a family run company that has been working in partnership with Nolte for 30 years. Nolte was founded more than 50 years ago and is the second largest German manufacturer of kitchens with exports to over 40 countries worldwide. Famous for innovation, the company offers the very best in quality, efficiency and design. One of the biggest hurdles in our industry is to overcome public perception that kitchen specialists charge high prices and is the same as Nolte because it looks similar. Mark David's mission is to assist dealers in changing these perceptions; to discover ways to engage with the public and to prove that both the kitchen specialist and the manufacturer have their best interests at heart!

CaesarStone has created a new collection of colours. Dusty Stones, Black Rocks, Buttermilk, Organic White and Pure White (the most definitive white available) are the five new additions.

CaesarStone proudly presents the world's first quartz surfaces with an embossed, textured look and feel. Developed by CaesarStone, Motivo is a brilliant new technology that enables all customers and end users to create pattern designed finishes from the range of surfaces. Motivo opens up a whole new world of creativity, delivering a wide range of options for stunningly designed spaces.

CaesarStone is an engineered quartz-based surface with low maintenance, easy to live with properties that mean it will keep its good looks for many years to come. CaesarStone is chip, crack, scratch and heat resistant and sealing is not necessary. These characteristics remain the same whether the finish is honed or polished, pale or dark, plain or patterned. The non-porous nature of the material means that it is hygienic and resistant to staining. CaesarStone surfaces require just minimal maintenance to keep their good looks. The hard, non-penetrable surface makes cleaning simple. In most cases soap and water or a mild detergent are all that is needed to maintain the lustre. The standard slab dimensions for CaesarStone quartz surfaces are 1440mm by 3060mm, which allows great design flexibility and maximum utilisation of the product. The material is available in 20 and 30mm thicknesses plus 13mm on selected colours. CaesarStone was the world's first quartz company to comply with ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental preservation regulations. All CaesarStone surfaces comply with American GEI (GREENGUARD Environmental Institute) certification, ensuring that they are safe for the environment, do not release harmful surfaces into the air and thus contribute to improving indoor air quality.

CaesarStone quartz surfaces were chosen for the luxurious Locker Room restaurant and Boots Barred sports bar at 3G All Weather Football in Lancashire. The company wanted a hard wearing surface that would complement the modern feel of the rooms while meeting the practical requirements of a busy bar area. The solution was CaesarStone surfaces in Blizzard White and Mosaic Carbone in 50 and 30mm thicknesses.

Distinctive colours, textured effects and depth of visual interest are hallmarks of the Trend surfaces collection which is available in over 60 colours and finishes.

Trend surfaces by Granite Transformations are premium worktop materials that offer outstanding performance and a top quality finish. Originally marketed to the kitchen makeover sector through the company’s own showrooms as the top that fits on top, these best selling surfaces are now available to independent retailers, interior designers, shopfitters and contractors as first fit worktops and other finishing products. The material is bonded to 100 percent water resistant construction board and orders are made to measure in the GT factory. Trend is made from around 95 percent Italian granite, quartz or tempered glass mixed with a specially formulated polymer resin to create a tough, rigid, non-porous agglomerate that is much stronger than natural stone. It is resistant to cracking, chipping, abrasion, household chemicals, cutting edges, fading and heat. Its light weight and controlled flexibility make Trend ideal for features such as cantilevered units, vertical cladding and curved or contoured surfaces. The material is produced in slabs measuring 3m by 1.25m so most kitchen tops can be fabricated without joins. The finishing touch is added with a choice of edge profiles from deep square to chamfered. Trend is internationally tested and certificated for technical performance. It is also Greenguard approved for low VOC emissions. The material is available in a whole spectrum of colours from the deep blacks of natural granite to bright red and orange, subtle blues and greens, autumnal and muted quartz tones to polar white.

Offering scope for specifying sustainable construction materials on new build projects, Trend Green recycled glass surfaces are made from up to 72 percent recovered material - notably used wine and beer bottles - and are amongst the most eco friendly finishing products on the market. Green also comes in many colours including bold primaries, virtual black and white, rustic mixes and naturally shades of green.

Hardwearing properties and a non-porous finish make Trend ideal for kitchen worktops, bar counters and outdoor living spaces.

Diamond polished Trend worktops and interior finishes are available in different depths and a choice of edge profiles.

CASUAL ELM 1 SC 1299 001-050 This light grey-limed version of the traditional elm combines relaxed with casual to produce an “easy living” design. It works well both on its own or co-ordinated with any vibrant plain colour to reflect an individuals character or create a specific atmosphere. Casual Elm is matched to Kronospan’s D8514.

DRIFTWOOD 3 4218 003-154 Driftwood is a new linear woodgrain whose exact species is difficult to determine as time, erosion and wave action have stripped it back to its pure structure. Its “feel me” textured surface adding to its realism. Shown here, Driftwood 3 is the palest of the three different colours brought into the range. It evokes a feeling of having idled a while on a tropical sun-soaked beach. All three Driftwoods co-ordinate with an Egger board. Driftwood 3 matches reference H3090.

Design software is valued by independent businesses and major corporate retailers the world over for its innovative, cutting edge and fully integrated planning solutions. Fusion's software offers design, pricing and presentation tools along with manufacturers catalogues from both the kitchen and bathroom industries. With more than 50 new features (many added following requests from customers) Version 17 of the software is easier to use than ever, making the entire design process even more simple and effective. Key new features of Fusion Version 17 include a display unit list available in graphical views and an Advanced Add Palette Filter which can be applied against any combination of unit name, order code, description, dimension and handing, making it simple to locate a specific unit or a range of units to meet the requirements entered. Using Version 17, designers can also create virtual guided tours of a customer's room design based on specific saved viewpoints in a room which can then be manipulated to form frames of a movie to be viewed in Fusion or saved to disc for the customer to take away. In previous versions, the Perspective and Visualise views were restricted, meaning that if a viewing point was set outside of the room only the back face of the wall could be seen. With Version 17, users can now opt to automatically hide the relevant walls and determine how units placed on these walls will be displayed.

The reputation of North East Sheets and Panels as a supplier of quality products has grown through 12 successful years of trading. Affordability as well as quality are key to the NESP ethos, with all products meeting strict standards before being sent to customers. The Pinnacle Door Collection has been a major factor in NESP's success. The range was developed over eight years ago to offer a cost effective slab door to customers in the North East. It now includes 35 finishes combined with over 20 different edgings and is available to customers across the UK. Manufacturing is in house to ensure that quality is maintained and all customer requirements can be met. This also allows the company to offer non-standard sizes, plus identical end panels for complete co-ordination. The range includes exotic finishes, glosses and primary colours and is suitable for larger contracts as well as one off applications. Vetreo is a new door collection from NESP and brings an affordable option to the high gloss market. It includes eight colours under the Vetreo Acrylic name and five on trend shades within the Vetreo Woodgrains brand. The unique construction of an acrylic face on an mdf core means that the product is lighter and easier to drill than some others in the acrylic market. Two tone acrylic edging tape creates an impressive finish that gives the illusion of glass. NESP also offers panel products, worktops, sinks, lighting, handles, as well as top brand names including BLUM, Reginox and Thermopal and can often obtain new lines to meet customer demand.

THE SCIENCE OF MOVEMENT

components Take your kitchen to the next level. Only imagination sets limits to how electric movement can improve tomorrow's kitchen. The philosophy of tomorrow's kitchen is about making it fit the users needs for functionality and movement. While high end kitchens of today are already multifunctional and designed in a pure and minimalist style, LINAK is ready to take your kitchen to the next level. LINAK offers well proved products for kitchen environments that enable designers to invent yet unforseen functionalities. The perfection in motion solutions from LINAK have the ability to improve people's lives.

The DL2 lifting column is an ideal standalone system. It is available in three standard stroke lengths: 300mm, 350mm and 500mm. The lifting capacity is up to 3500N per column. Up to four columns can be run from one control box. Heights can be pre-set and are near silent in operation. Tables and islands in the kitchen suit many different purposes when the height is adjustable. Raise the table to a comfortable level when preparing a meal. When the meal has been served, lower the table to its preferred position. The activity table is also ideal for family participation. Tall, small or medium sized? People need different working heights - and being able to raise or lower a surface means you will always be working in the best position. LINAK can also help when hands free opening or lowering of cupboards is needed. As cupboard doors are getting larger and heavier, an actuator solution provides easy access.

The DL4 lifting column has a low installation height of 560mm with a stroke of 675mm. It can be run as a single column or as a multiple system parallel drive. The lifting capacity is 700N per column. The system can be configured to set heights. Also available are memory functions and RF remote control.

Raise parts of an island to let it reveal new functions perhaps to provide easy access to tableware or to allow a tv set or computer monitor to slide away when not needed. Use two lifting columns and see how the block rises elegantly with minimal noise.

The pride and joy of owning a new kitchen can quickly fade when the consumer realises that it doesn’t really work in the way they hoped it would because the needs of day to day usage were not considered at the planning stage. Apart from the essential fundamentals such as proper storage and access, the next most important feature of any modern kitchen is how it moves. The majority of leading international kitchen manufacturers specify Blum fittings and systems and with this comes the pleasure that the end user will discover through Blum's development of Perfecting Motion. Soft close on drawers has almost become an industry standard, Blum's BLUMOTION system takes this to another level with integrated and advanced soft close incorporated into the drawerbox and runner systems which operate effortlessly even under loads as high as 65kg. Blum has now extended Perfecting Motion and BLUMOTION into soft close cabinet doors - both vertically and horizontally hung - with the groundbreaking new CLIPtop BLUMOTION fully integrated hinges with intelligent activating technology. Blum SERVO-DRIVE automatic drawer opening means that drawers open in response to slight pressure. SERVO-DRIVE also facilitates automatic closing on Blum AVENTOS overhead cabinet lift systems.

SERVO-DRIVE means drawers can be opened with the slightest pressure.

020 8564 9377 london@compac.es www.compac.es

The colour and finish for a worksurface is an important decision, colours reflect our feelings and lifestyles but need to harmonise with their surroundings. COMPAC show their understanding of this with the launch of two quartz worksurface colours –Botticino (pictured) and Pierre Bleue that combine the natural beauty of stone with the unique characteristics of quartz to provide consistency of colour, practically non-existent porosity, high resistance to impact, heat and abrasion and natural antibacterial protection (due to the almost completely impermeable nature of quartz). COMPAC are so confident about their high quality of manufacture, that they now offer consumers a Lifetime Warranty on all their quartz worksurfaces - the first quartz worksurface manufacturer to offer such protection for the homeowner.
