spne1104_b1 The lightweight worktop from Sprela

A viable alternative:
The lightweight worktop from Sprela

Sprela GmbH is setting new standards with a lightweight worktop at interzum in Cologne (Hall 4.2, stand D001). The new product, the Sprela lightweight board, has a bulk density of less than 500 kg/m³, making it much lighter than conventional worktops. Therefore it is a viable alternative for use in the kitchen. The benefits are clear to see: it is easier to handle and cheaper to transport.

Unlike classic composite sandwiches with honeycomb cores, the Sprela lightweight board is made from a single cast. The continuous particle board ensures a high level of durability and load capacity. Its low weight of less than 500 kg/m³ is achieved thanks to the size, wood type and distribution of the chip chosen. The lightweight worktop from Sprela can be machined with conventional woodworking machines and tools, and it requires no special fittings, which is especially important when installing a sink, for instance.

Sprela’s new worktop isn’t just durable; it’s extremely eco-friendly too. Thanks to its robust HPL surface, it satisfies all the requirements of a modern worktop: high abrasion resistance, heat resistance, resistance to scratches and much more. Because it is 100% wood, the Sprela lightweight board can be recycled and is a fantastic sustainable product since it doesn't contain any fillers such as polyurethane or other plastics.   
The lightweight worktop can be coated in HPL using any of the many attractive decors available from Sprela. The new trend collection being presented at interzum showcases a whole host of trendy ideas in modern colours. As part of the Kronospan decor group, all Sprela branches can access one of the largest stocks of decorative papers. Sprela is the perfect provider of intelligent product solutions in the furniture industry and interior design.
