BEECH AB

Beech offers an ideal opportunity to own a solid wood worktop at an affordable price, whilst still offering a high quality hardwearing worktop. Beech wood is a white, heart wood, with a close grain and a hint of pink which create a beautiful orangey red finish that compliments any modern kitchen design.  Beech wood is commonly used in furniture and carcass construction and flooring as it is stable and hard wearing. These characteristics lend themselves to kitchen work surfaces perfectly.

icon_silkwood Silkwood is our unique surface finish that results in one of the highest quality finishes in the market. The process was originally developed for oiling and finishing the new Eurostar St. Pancras terminal Jatoba wood flooring. With several million visitors every year passing over the floor it’s proven to be extremely hard wearing and stain resistant - that technology and experience has now been introduced into our worktop ranges so you can experience the benefit of Silkwood. The combination of WOCA penetrating oils and the patented Silkwood finish gives a finish that is unrivalled within the marketplace and a worktop that literally feels like silk!
