Curves in all the right places

Curves in all the right places

A message from our Corporate Plus Partner, Austaron.

Staron® Solid Surfaces is manufactured by Lotte Chemical from a safe natural mineral refined from bauxite and blended with pure acrylic resin to create a high performance solid surface. Staron® Solid Surfaces does not contain harmful silica. With a range of over 90 colours to select from, Staron® offers an extensive range of solid surface.

One of the great advantages of Staron® is that it can be moulded and curved into any design or structure through a process called thermoforming. This process allows three-dimensional designs to come to life. Virtually any shape can be formed with Staron®.

This creative process of design can result in endless interesting design possibilities. Wall panels can be curved, countertops can join inconspicuously around soft curves, and custom design vanities can be a feature with smooth rounded designs.

Create unique curved surfaces or make the waves of your project twist into a concept that creates impact. Walls can gently or dramatically curve and retail counters can curve into interesting designs.

The flexibility of Staron® extends to limitless edge profiles, drop down edges, splashbacks and tile coves. Selected Staron® colours are also translucent and can be backlit to bring your design to life.

Staron® is non-toxic, Greenguard® and Greenguard® Gold certified, Eco-Specifier certified so you can specify Staron® with the peace of mind that you are providing a material that will create a healthy project environment.

The non-porous nature of Staron® means that no stain is ever permanent, providing a durable surface that is hygienic and easy to clean. Staron® is also repairable and renewable. Even after years of use it can simply be sanded and restored back to its original condition. Staron® does not have any finishing polishes or sealers applied; it is the same solid material throughout its thickness. It creates long and wide continuing surfaces with no open or conspicuous joins.

No dirt trapping joins or crevices to clean, just one continuous surface that looks and performs as one piece. Staron® Solid Surfaces achieves a Group 1 Fire Certificate result to AS56371.1 and is backed by a 10-Year Warranty for peace of mind.

Staron Solid Surfaces are proudly distributed by Austaron Surfaces.

Beauty of natural stone with performance benefits of solid surface

Beauty of natural stone with performance benefits of solid surface

A message from our Corporate Partner, Austaron

The design criteria for this kitchen space was for it to be a contemporary, clean design while also having warmth and being easy to live and cook in. Using a selection of materials to create the design, the owners wanted a benchtop and splashback material that would perform well but also have a beautiful aesthetic. Staron® Solid Surfaces in colour Supreme Cotton White was selected as it provided an inviting feel to the kitchen and eliminated the need for any open joins due to the joining properties of the material. With soft veining emulating the look of a natural stone, while providing the non-porous and stain resistant performance benefits of a solid surface. The non-toxic, silica free, Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certification also make Staron® Solid Surfaces a safe and hygienic surface solution for endless applications throughout the home. The crisp white surface complements the warm colours of the cabinetry materials and the industrial polished concrete flooring. The overall result is a stunning kitchen space that has a minimalist design with interesting character and a functional design.

Jolie handles are the jewels in this kitchen

Jolie handles are the jewels in this kitchen

Australian homeowners often underestimate the impact of cabinetry handles when undertaking a home renovation. Clients can deliberate for days, weeks or months about the colour and finish of their kitchen cabinetry, but leave little time for the selection of suitably stylish hardware.

A detail-oriented designer, however, will not overlook the ‘jewels’ of the kitchen, and will ensure that the handles and knobs get the attention they deserve.

Melbourne designer, Dorothy de Guara, is well aware of the impact that well-designed hardware can have on a space. Her client’s two-bedroom Port Melbourne apartment was limited in size but bursting in potential: de Guara’s careful space planning, stylish colour palette and excellent detailing resulted in a considerable transformation. 

The designer sought an exclusive, high-quality handle to add both class and substance to her client’s new kitchen, and the solid brass, sand-cast Symm by Jolie proved a perfect selection.

Sourced from Two Tease Architectural Hardware in Sydney’s Crows Nest, the handles take the kitchen renovation to an all-new level.

‘The handles look and feel magic,’ said de Guara. ‘I feel they enhance the kitchen and add to the elegance of the joinery’.

With their exclusive range of premium architectural hardware, sourced from the world’s leading designers, Two Tease will help you add the pièce de resistance to your projects.

Depending on the selected programme, the PowerDisk® will automatically dispense detergent at exactly the right time with a sensor in the automatic programme measuring the degree of soiling on cutlery to adapt the dosage accordingly. The PowerDisk® contains enough detergent for an average of 20 dishwashing programmes meaning customers need not worry about filling it up for up to a month.
Experience freedom like never before. With AutoStart and the Miele@mobile app you can set your G 7000 dishwasher to automatically start at one or several pre-determined times. Thanks to AutoDos with integrated PowerDisk®, there is always detergent available to enable the appliance to get to work completely autonomously – starting it manually is no longer required.

InSinkErator offers efficient food waste alternative

InSinkErator offers efficient food waste alternative

A message from our Premier Partners, Multitap

From the makers of the beautiful Italian designed Multitap™ 3N1 comes the InSinkErator® Food Waste Disposer range offering a quick, convenient, and environmentally responsible way in managing food waste.

In our own backyard, over 5.3 million tonnes of food is wasted each year with around a third of the average household bin ending up as wasted food. Food waste sitting in landfill and kerbside produces methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas that is a known contributor to climate change. In fact, methane is 21 times more dangerous than carbon dioxide.

So how can InSinkErator help?

  • Disposers divert food waste from landfills, helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions from decomposing waste and trucks transporting it.
  • Food waste can be recycled into renewable energy at capable wastewater treatment plants and fed back into the grid.
  • Wastewater treatment plants can process food waste into biosolids for land regeneration.
  • Disposers use less than 1% of household water consumption and cost less than $3.50 a year in electricity.
  • Food waste has a density of 1 mg/ml. So, if food waste is 70-90% water to begin with, and it has the same density as human waste and water, there should be no concerns about “solids” settling out in sewers and causing blockages and overflows. Properly designed and constructed sewers will transport this material very efficiently to the treatment plant without causing any issues.
  • Importantly, the high carbon to nitrogen ratio will help the plants remove nutrients from their effluent, reducing the negative impacts of eutrophication on our streams, rivers and lakes.

The process is simple

Food scraps are swept into the sink and with the flick of a switch and turn of a tap, they are ground and flushed without blades through to a wastewater treatment plant. At capable treatment plants, methane from ground food waste can be captured and recycled into renewable energy instead of ending up in landfill.

Clutter-free counters are a constant trend in creating a clean and minimalist workspace. With the Multitap and InSinkErator range, there is no need for a kettle or a large bin, allowing precious storage and bench space to be saved.
