At Wood Worktops, we like to help our customers to get the best from their worktops. The End Caps Service we provide is there to do just that, allowing you to protect the end grain of the worktops from the heat and humidity caused by being situated next to a range cooker.
Wood is a natural product; whilst hard-wearing, the end grain can react to its environment and dry out and split if exposed to heat for prolonged periods. End caps are specifically designed to create a protective barrier between the end grain of the wood, and the prolonged heat, and humidity, often created by range cookers like Aga, Rayburn etc.
The end caps are made by cutting along the width of a worktop and then adding the offcut to cover the end grain of the wood. The long grain of the offcut is situated next to a range cooker and can easily withstand prolonged heat and humidity. The end caps not only protect the natural wood but also add a beautiful edge finish with the contrast of the grain patterns and can also be used as a design feature, as well as for protection.
The End Cap service will ensure your worktop is ready to fit from delivery; this service can be added to your order by selecting this option when ordering your worktop. If you have any questions or require assistance with your order, our friendly team is always on hand to help you by phone or email.
