With a number of new additions to its already extensive portfolio, James Latham now offers one of the UK’s widest ranges of innovative surface solutions under one roof – available from one supplier – at all nine of its nationwide panel distribution sites. 

Shinnoki 2.0 is a range of ready-to-use veneered panels that are supplied already stained and lacquered, requiring no further finishing. With Shinnoki, the veneer is applied to an MDF base, rendering the panels sturdy and easy to use. In addition, the panels are produced in both a single or double sided finish, with the first having a melamine faced-reverse.

Veneers are mismatched, but stained and textured to create a consistent finish that shows the natural aspects and beauty of the species. The extensive Shinnoki 2.0 range is supplied in designs which are completely in tune with current design trends and includes matching realwood and ABS edge banding. The 17 designs are also supplied in separate 3-ply veneer sheets, ideal for curved surfaces, doors or other interior requirements.

Exclusive to James Latham in the UK, the striking Allure Stone Form range offers six different types of unique, real stone laminate. Allure Stone Form is produced by taking thin layers of natural stone that have been split from the surface of a large slab. These thin layers are then fused onto a flexible fibre-glass backing using special innovative technology to create the final product.

In addition, Allure Stone Form is flexible and is able bend up to a 6” radius making it a versatile option to enhance any design project, plus its lightweight too. It can easily be applied to flat or curved walls, partitions, columns, ceilings, doors, furniture and kitchen units making it an ideal solution either for commercial, shopfitting or residential applications where a real stone finish is required but the use of heavy, solid stone is often impractical and cost prohibitive.

As part of its ever expanding range of laminates, James Latham now offers a staggering 237 Egger decors. The full Egger Zoom collection, which includes 112 matching melamine faced boards and edgings, is available nationwide and directly from stock at all nine of James Latham's panel products distribution sites.

As well as the timeless classics of white, beige, grey and black, the Zoom collection includes bright, intense and striking primary colours that can be used to create a lively atmosphere, adding character to any project, plus there is an exotic wood grain and authentic rough cut wood available.

Egger laminate is suitable for a broad range of applications in both the shopfitting and furniture making sectors, including worktops, furniture fronts, window sills, doors, tabletops, splashbacks and decorative end panels.

Plus, it is an ideal material for high traffic areas due to its multi-layered construction and over 90% of the Zoom laminate range is FSC CW certified. It also conforms to EN438 and is MED compliant, making it suitable for boat and ship interiors. 

A totally original product, Valchromat is a coloured engineered fibreboard in which the colour runs throughout the entire board. This is achieved by adding organic dyes and a specially formulated resin before pressing the panel.

With 11 vibrant colours in the range, Valchromat has already become a popular choice within the UK shopfitting and furniture manufacturing sectors where bold and impactful colours are part of the specification.

Plus, Valchromat has been approved by the British Standards Association as safe to use in the manufacture of children’s toys and so interest has also grown within that sector.
