Brushed Stainless Steel
Metal is used in several Arnold Kolax styles, and come in 2 standard finishes, satin aluminum and brushed stainess steel. Solid metal is used on the stand-offs under glass counters, and legs, while pure metal laminate is used as decorative banding and toe kicks.
High Pressure Laminates are a good choice for worksurfaces and counters in high traffic areas. Typically are same price as wood. Include any standard matte laminate from Formica, Nevamar, or Wilsonart.
Glass is used on several Arnold Kolax series as counter material. It comes in clear or frosted and has a polished edge. The glass is 3/4" thick. The metal stand-offs are typically glued to the underside of the glass counter.
Solid surfacing materials like Corian are available as durable and attractive worksurfaces and counters.
Arnold Kolax uses a number of other materials in its library and office furniture, including leather, acrylics, woven metal, etc.
