Geaves Surface Solutions launches innovative new glitter laminate – Galaxy
Geaves would like to take this opportunity to announce the launch of another exciting and innovative laminate product ‚Äì Galaxy.
Galaxy is a range of decorative laminate that contains thousands of pieces of gold and silver glitter that reflect the light beautifully.
Galaxy is available in many different colours including gold, stone, olive, lilac, blue, red and grey. You can also choose from two finishes – Lucida, a smooth, super shiny and glossy surface, or Stone, a beautiful, natural matt finish.
Geaves were approached by one of our large high street retail clients to find an alternative to the glitter paint product they were using. The painted finish was not durable enough and was not cost-effective due to the labour intensive nature of the application. The finish was also not glossy so the effect was not as strong as the client could have hoped.
Therefore Geaves came up with Galaxy, a beautiful, durable product with a fantastic finish.
Galaxy can be supplied in Class 1 from a thickness of 0.7 to 1.0 mm.

EuroShop – focus on sustainability
This year’s EuroShop was the biggest yet with over 100,000 visitors and Geaves, in partnership with SM’art were on of over 2,000 exhibitors.
We were really pleased to see such a great turnout and found the focus on sustainable materials and products particularly interesting. It was the greatest EuroShop ever – with the use of sustainable materials for shop fitting high on everyone’s agenda, as we are all too aware of the devastating effect that unsustainable and irresponsible forestry can have on our planet’s resources.
At Geaves we understand that retailers can only lessen their impact on the environment if suppliers are dedicated to doing the same. Ensuring that you source wood products from well managed, sustainable forests can go some way towards this goal.
Geaves Surface Solutions has obtained both The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) chain of custody certificate, ensuring that we only source products from sustainable resources.
If you’d like to use surface solutions in your projects that are more environmentally friendly than traditional wooden surfaces, melamine faced particle board (chipboard and MDF) is manufactured from wood residues and thinnings from sustainable sources. Production is continually monitored and adapted to minimise negative environmental effects, e.g. emissions and waste generation.
All of Geaves’ laminate materials are also produced in accordance with the Environmental Management System Certification ISO14001:2004.The amount of waste sent to landfill is reduced and energy is saved through the minimal use of natural resources.
If you would like some more ideas for more environmentally friendly surface solutions please give us a call on 01245 329922.
Geaves Surface Solutions look forward to seeing you at the next EuroShop from 15 to 19 February 2014.
