As more Australians are embracing the trend of an outdoor space being an extension of the home, the new Laminex ® Alfresco Compact Laminate range is taking the design possibilities that Laminex is renowned for, outdoors.

The stylish and durable range is the first true compact laminate that can be used outdoors and allows homeowners and renovators to create a myriad of outdoor settings, from alfresco kitchens to customised outdoor furniture.

Laminex Business Manager for SA, Mark Flaherty, said more than ever before, the line between indoor and outdoor design and living is blurring. “Outdoor living is no longer just having a drink or enjoying a meal around an outdoor table; We’re seeing homeowners and renovators incorporate the design elements of their interiors outside,” he said.

Made to withstand the outdoor elements, Laminex Alfresco Compact Laminate has outstanding resilience and design-leading looks. Featuring nine contemporary decors, including woodgrains and solids, Laminex Alfresco Compact Laminate also has a distinctive black core which acts as a striking design feature.

Offering the

look of timber but without the maintenance required to keep it looking its best, Sawn Lumber, Split Cedar and Brushed Beam provide a range of mid-toned woodgrains to create outdoor tables, seating and a whole lot more for an alfresco area fit to entertain family and friends. Neutral solids Slip, Mortar, Sentry, Stone and Manganese can be mixed and matched to create blissful outdoor spaces spanning lights, darks, greys and earthen. Bespeckled Grey adds a stone look option to the range to reference interior spaces for an integrated look.

Built to survive the Australian outdoors, Laminex Alfresco Compact Laminate is highly durable and available in two thicknesses – a 13mm best suited for horizontal applications or a 6mm for vertical applications, such as privacy screens.

With a seven year limited warranty, Laminex Alfresco will inspire you to enjoy the outdoors even more. To find out more about Laminex Alfresco Compact Laminate, call into The Laminex Group Showroom at 163 Currie Street, Adelaide or visit
