Our fabulous full stave sapele is the height of luxury. Sometimes referred to as 'sapelli' these wonderful worktops comprise an assortment of attributes that make them an ideal choice for any kitchen. These sapele work surfaces have staves that are a lavish 90mm wide, accentuating the gorgeous chestnut tones of this robust African timber. With warmer hues than black American walnut and darker colouring than iroko, sapele starts life with pale, pinkish tones and darkens to a rich red soon after installation.
Our best-selling collection of worktops has been meticulously crafted from only the highest quality raw materials available, resulting in worktops that seamlessly combine durability, strength and beauty, whichever timber species you select. Our full stave worktops are carefully constructed from high-pressure glued, 90mm wide staves, and have attractive square edges. Our A grade sapele kitchen countertops are fully sanded to a 150 grit smoothness. They are left otherwise untreated, to allow you to finish them with your preferred treatment prior to installation. These hardwood worktops come at an affordable price and are available directly to the public, cutting out any middle-men and saving our customers over 75% on the inflated prices of high-street retailers. We guarantee a speedy 2Man delivery service, products of optimum quality and great value for money.
All our solid wood worktops have been built to stand the test of time in even the busiest of households - these fantastic full stave sapele worktops are no exception, and look well-suited in both traditional and modern properties.

We are extremely proud to promote a strong environmental policy across our entire range of sapele worktops. We constantly monitor our African timber sources in order to ensure that our environmental practices are strictly adhered to, with a fully-traceable chain of custody.A high level of care is taken in ensuring that we make full use of the product matter. For instance, we use larger offcuts to create worktop samples, whilst smaller pieces fuel the biomass heating system in our warehouse. As a result, we have no wastage.

Worktop Express® is a distribution company in the truest sense of the word; and cost-effectiveness is built into our business model.
With Worktop Express there is simply no middleman: we even operate our own in-house 2Man delivery service to maximise efficiency. When you choose Worktop Express, you are choosing a group of specialists who devote their expert attention to every step of the process and are single-handedly responsible for sourcing, stocking, marketing, and distributing the product. Ensuring that we are the only link between the customer and manufacturer allows us to offer the most up-to-date products in the market for lower prices than any other retailer.
Our large stock holding - over 20,000 worktops are held in stock at any time across various locations - and sheer purchasing power dictates that the prices we can provide direct to the public and trade are extremely competitive. We do not share the same overheads as high-street stores (on average an initial 270% markup tends to be applied just to cover warehousing and staff costs) and therefore can achieve similar profit margins - but without overcharging customers! Our direct internet delivery model and advanced stock ordering allows us to minimise costs.
We have five strategically-placed depots throughout the UK, all of which are serviced by an impressive fleet of in-house delivery vehicles. As a result, we are able to offer an unparalleled delivery service: cost-effective, consistent, and prompt.
The belief that superb quality can go hand-in-hand with affordability is a lynchpin of the Worktop Express ethos. As a result we are confident that the Worktop Express product range far outstrips the quality of anything you will find on the high street - and often at a fraction of the cost.
