Surfaces made from artificial stone are user-friendly and they are captivating due to their premium look. There are numerous kinds of artificial stone that can be used. Please, watch the list of tested materials to figure out which kind of artificial stone might be the best one for your buffet counter.

Cover material glass

Glass is giving your buffet counter an elegant look with a special gloss and it can be cleaned easily. Gastros’ recommendation is to use scratch-resistant ESG glass. The material can be coloured in almost any RAL-colour. Logos can be added also. Gastros would be glad to assist you with your choice and provides a list of glass specifications.

Cover material wood

Buffet counters made from wood are timeless and match any interior design from classic elegance to rustic styles. The material radiates visual warmth and a sense of liveliness. It is technically no problem to use wood as cover material for the InductWarm® 130+ system. But also in this case – keep in mind to have a look at Gastros’ cover material guidelines to make the right choice of material.
