Bamboo Worktop Upstand 3M X 80 X 18mm
Bamboo upstands are made of the same sustainable bamboo timber as our high-quality bamboo worktops, and can provide an elegant and efficient alternative to tiling all the way down to the worktop's surface — an ideal finishing touch for solid wood worktops in kitchens.
As well as seamlessly blending bamboo worktops into the kitchen's overall design, matching upstands will also hide the small 5mm expansion gap that should be left when installing solid wood worktops against a wall.
These bamboo kitchen worktop upstands are also crucial when fitting timber worktops against uneven walls, as they help to conceal any small gaps that would otherwise be visible.
Bamboo upstands are supplied with a perfectly square edge profile and so can be fitted straight away to create a defined, chunky look; alternatively our bespoke cutting team can apply a variety of edge profiles to give it a look that fits in with your kitchen's design.
When cutting bamboo worktops to size, you may notice the occasional appearance of small gaps within the exposed cross-section of the cut edge. This is not a manufacturing fault but a natural occurrence due to the bamboo's layered construction. You will find this is easily remedied with a small application of an appropriate filler.

Please note: this item should not be fitted directly behind a hob without additional protection. Please refer to the hob manufacturer's guidelines to ensure that your installation complies with safety standards.
All of our solid wood upstands are pre-sanded and untreated as standard. We advise using Rustins Danish Oil during the installation process to seal your wooden upstand. Should you wish to take advantage of our pre-oiling service, please contact our customer service team.
