When it comes to selecting bathroomware for your new build or bathroom renovation, there are a few factors to take into consideration. Yes you’ll be working with a budget in mind, as well as a style you’re wanting to achieve, but what about where the product is made, and what goes into the product as well as being confident in the longevity and quality of the product?
The reasons listed below make the Athena Create Vanity Range a good choice for you and your family as they take into account the smaller considerations you wouldn’t necessarily think about when buying a vanity:
Our vanity cabinets are made in NZ
Yes, that’s right! All of our cabinets are manufactured right here in New Zealand, with wood sourced from FSC Certified New Zealand Forest plantations, and the local board manufacturing factories are Environmental Choice Certified.
New Zealand manufacturers lead the world in developing Low Emission products, and all our cabinetry uses locally produced board which conforms to the worldwide Low Emission Standard of E1 or better.
Some cabinets produced overseas have a higher and potentially harmful level of formaldehyde that can leach out of the products after being installed. These cabinets may be in circulation in New Zealand, but you can be sure with our cabinets that you don’t need to worry about this.
Durachique Textured Laminates
Our Durachique laminates utilise technology that creates a unique deep textured wood like finish. The depth and density of the laminates in Durachique is created with PUR heat and moisture resistant bonding technology to create a long lasting, resilient, textured finish.
Go on…. have a feel of the life-like textured Durachique samples in your local merchant store.
Unique PUR Bonding Technology
PUR bonding is acknowledged worldwide, as delivering the most heat resistant, moisture resistant, and near-seamless bond possible.
Technically it chemically sets against the moisture carried in air and therefore it literally resists moisture.
Our Durachique & Exochique finishes use PUR technology to bond the laminate to the board, and to bond the edge tape. Our Standard finishes (except White Gloss) use NZ supplied moisture resistant board combined with PUR edge bonding technology. Our White Gloss Standard finish uses a gloss vinyl (PVC) foil which is vacuum formed and bonded over the board, to create a seamless chip resistant surface.
We offer a 5 year Warranty
We offer a 5 year warranty on our vanities. This includes the tops, handles and hardware, and we carry stock of certain spare parts for easy replacements. Contact your local merchant store for further details.
