High gloss and boards
Acrylic and PVC materials are used to make a thick, durable finish on top of MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). The colour range includes plain colours as well as metallics. Acrylic does not deteriorate over time. It retains all its original brightness and colour. It also withstands prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light and moisture. A High Gloss Wrap door is made with an MDF core or centre which has been cut and profiled. A foil is then heat pressed and glued onto the door using a vacuum technique. High gloss wrap doors have become so popular, capturing the market. A very durable product, they are exclusively used to create a modern look as they are contemporary and elegant but what’s best is they are easy to keep clean. Acrylic doors are often the designer's choice because they come in a stylish range of high gloss solid colour, metallic and wood grain finishes. They cost substantially more than Wrap doors, though, so when you're choosing between High Gloss Wrap and Acrylic kitchen doors, do keep your budget in mind.
Advantages and Features
Acrylic Gloss kitchens can be easily and successfully blended with other colours and materials, including wood, stone and stainless steel. As light hits the surface of an Acrylic Gloss kitchen door it will be reflected back to the room. Reflected light will frequently make space feel light and bright for an inviting and uplifting kitchen atmosphere. At the same time light reflected off a gloss kitchen door can also make a room feel more spacious. This latter occurrence is of particular note for small kitchen designs where space maximising is an essential part of the planning process. Acrylic doors are UV light and moisture resistant.
Having the ultimate acrylic gloss finish comes at a price. Although they’re cheaper than glass kitchens, acrylic gloss kitchens are more expensive than both lacquered gloss & foil wrapped gloss kitchens. Maintenance While practically all gloss surfaces can scratch, light scratches can be buffed out by using Rally (acrylic enriched) car polish. Acrylic kitchens can be wiped clean with only a damp cloth. All of our acrylic kitchen (and bedroom) doors and accessories are made to the highest standard using the most up to date CNC technology and manufacturing processes.
