Indulge yourself with smart design, colours and textures by choosing elegant splashbacks and benchtops in practical materials from Australia’s leader in premium decorative surfaces.

The Laminex Group has a portfolio of market leading brands that offers a range of sophisticated finishes for your home. The company has recently launched its latest innovative product, Laminex Metaline Splashbacks.

With the superior look and feel of glass, Laminex Metaline Splashbacks provide a heat and water resistant vertical panel option for easy installation in kitchens behind gas and electric cooktops. They are also ideal for wet area wall linings.

LaminexLaminex Metaline Splashbacks are as visually dynamic as they are practical, with an easy to clean and highly durable clear coating surface overlayed on a range of twelve stunning high gloss paint colour options.

The range has been developed to complement today’s interior colours, whether you are after harmonious neutral tones or a dramatic statement. Some examples are the rich brown of Sophisticat, the brilliance of Lipstick Red, the warm sparkling metallic of Champagne Perle or the palest white of Diamond Ice.

Both quicker and easier to install than glass and tiles, these splashbacks can be effortlessly cut, measured and installed by a cabinet maker in just a few hours.

Laminex Metaline Splashbacks are crafted using advanced fire retardant aluminium composite panels that are independently certified and compliant with the Building Code of Australia standards for domestic cooktop splashbacks.
