So what is a 'Werzalit Tabletop?
question and a great place to start if you have not
encountered these excellent tops before. Werzalit tabletops
have a highly specialised core.
The core of Werzalit table
tops is made of virgin beech and conifer wood chips. The
wood originates from sustainable forestry and is always
available since forest resources are cultivated and new
trees will grow.
The chip core does not
differ greatly in appearance from that of a chip board, but a closer
look shows considerable differences: A high proportion of hardwood
chips makes the table top extremely sturdy and resistant to
mechanical stress. The solid resin proportion
(glue) of a chip board is 6-8%; that of a WERZALIT table top is
22-25%! WERZALIT boards are pressed with smaller chips and under
smooth closed film is homogenously pressed onto the core the
form a Werzalit tabletop. The tops
are made in a mould which ensures that the core is sealed
and can therefore be used both indoors and outdoors as they
are weatherproof and UV resistant. The finished surface is
easy to clean and satisfies the hygiene requirements of the
catering industry. They are practically impervious to
mechanical, thermal and chemical influences and are heat
resistant to 180 degree centigrade.
Are these tops hard wearing?
The durability of werzalit table tops satisfies the
requirements of DIN EN 438 for kitchen work surfaces. However, they
are not infinitely scratch-proof. Hard, rough, sharp-edged or mineral based objects, such as metal, stoneware or unglazed
porcelain can cause irreparable scratches and scrapes on the table tops. However, this does not impair their usability or long service
What colours and designs can I have?
The films are available in a wide range
of modern and traditional colours and designs and we are now
even able to offer individual design solutions so that you
can personalise your very own tabletops.
Anything else I need to know?
WERZALIT table tops that are
exposed to significant amounts of sunlight can temporarily
deform into a concave shape. The corners bend upward and the
middle downward. As a preventive measure to counteract this
change in shape, the table tops have been produced with a
slightly convex shape. When the table tops are used, this
deformation recedes such that it is hardly noticeable at
all. For locations exposed to extensive sunlight, we
recommend choosing lighter decors or our Classic design with
dark border but with a matching light decor in the centre of
the table top. Dark table tops with larger square and
rectangular dimensions heat up so much under heavy sunlight
that the resulting deformation is irreparable. These table
tops should only be used in shaded areas. In other words,
WERZALIT table tops are never quite perfectly flat. Due to
the pre-stressing described above, their suitability for
grouping together into larger table surfaces is limited.
Also, the tabletops should never be stored upside down
outdoors as the edge shape prevents water from running off.
