British-built cabinets feature anti-scratch “thermo healing” finish
August 10, 2020 | 1:37 pm UTC

British designer and manufacturer Daval has introduced Falmouth Dust Grey, modern five-piece Shaker-style kitchen cabinets with an anti-scratch foil finish. The smooth surface uses thermo healing technology with self-healing, restorative qualities

Thermo-reversible healing means a customer can repair any superficial micro-scratches by using an iron and a damp cloth on the damaged area. The addition of heat will enable the cabinet to start the thermal healing process and as long as the scratch has not penetrated the surface, the kitchen furniture will heal itself, according to Daval.

In addition to the high-tech Dust Grey finish, Falmouth takes the Shaker-style kitchen in a modern direction to provide an affordable design that is rich in detail. For example, each door within the new Falmouth Collection is designed with a smaller frame, deeper center panel and five-piece jointed framework, which creates a contemporary aesthetic with clean, well-balanced lines.

Daval’s Falmouth range is built from sustainably sourced materials and in their Yorkshire factory, where they combine the best of traditional joinery techniques with industry-leading production methods.

Falmouth is available in a range of contemporary colors with a range of new foil options. Falmouth is shown as an l-shaped kitchen concept with a central island unit with seating for two. In character with its pared-back style, slim dark gray marble defines the sink and preparation area and this is carried through to the worktops and island unit, which is designed with matching wrap-around end panels.
