Compass Kitchens believes that the keys to a quality timber top, (as with our timber doors), is to use the best Select Grade raw materials. We us the best grade of timbers, adhesives and lacquers. We employ the best construction methods with timely skilled timber preparation. We then polish our timber tops while adhering to a professional Airless Coating System for a quality Two-Pack finish.
We make our tops by gluing narrow timber strips together while alternating grain direction, like a laminated beam. This method makes our solid timber Benchtops stable, preventing these wide benches from cracking, bowing or twisting, while still allowing for the natural movements of timber.
Compass Kitchens use modern clear two-pack lacquers, which are easy to clean, chemical and moisture resistant, hard wearing and available in a variety of finishes from flat Matt through to High Gloss. We also believe it is important that the spray on coating must be continuous over the entire assembled top; and because of this we always polish our larger projects on-site. (As seen here with these Kitchens as well as like the 8 metre Curved Jarrah tops we made in one piece for the Mount Compass Golf Club bar that we built.)
