Food Service

Why surface food chain furniture and fixtures with RENOLIT Laminates instead of high pressure laminates?

Like high pressure laminates, RENOLIT 3D Laminates are available in horizontal and vertical grades suitable for flat laminating and edge-banding and in realistic woodgrains, metallics, abstract patterns, marble patterns, solid colors and whites. But the similarities end there.

In addition, RENOLIT Laminates can be membrane-pressed to form seamless, three dimensional components, miter-folded to form seamless outside corners of cabinetry, and profile-wrapped to surface linear millwork and extruded profiles—surfacing the diversity of components that comprise food chain furniture—with no visible seams.

It means that designers can now create high-style components in three dimensions instead of two. Virtually any shape routed into the top and side surfaces of wood core substrates—from compound curves and detailed profiles to undercut edges and corporate identity—can be encapsulated with a durable surface that is seamless and stunningly attractive.

Components surfaced with RENOLIT Laminates can also benefit from the cleanliness of crevice-free edges and, depending on design, the improved ergonomics and safety achievable by contouring of edges and/or rounding of corners.

Without visible seams, components take-on the appearance of solid wood, stone, metal or solid surfacing that has been machined, while eliminating the sharp corners and edges, and delamination, associated with edge banding.

Typical food service applications include:

  • Work surfaces
  • Partitions
  • Seat bottoms and backs
  • Table tops
  • Logo panels
  • Flipper doors
  • Cabinet doors
  • Cabinet frames
  • Drawer fascias
  • Wainscot
  • Chair rails
  • Valances
  • Condiment centers

Availability from stock, and a cut-to-length program for prototyping and smaller production runs, put the advantages of surfacing with RENOLIT 3D Laminates within easy reach of every food chain furniture specifier.
