Kitchen upstands are designed to be fitted at the back of worktops or breakfast bars as a finishing feature. Ceramic tiles can still be fitted above the upstand. The worktop upstands also cover any small expansion gap between the worktop and wall.
Our ash worktop upstands allow matching worktops to blend seamlessly into a kitchen, whilst at the same time hiding the 5mm expansion gap which is needed when installing worktops against an adjoining wall. Each upstand is manufactured from a number of the same 40mm staves that are used to create our ash worktops. http://www.worktop-express.co.uk/wood_worktops/ash-3m-80mm-18mm-worktop-upstand.html
Solid maple worktop upstands from Worktop Express are made from the same high-quality European maple that is used to construct our maple worktops. They add a stylish finishing touch to wooden worktop installations, and also hide the small 5mm expansion gap that is required between any worktops next to a wall. http://www.worktop-express.co.uk/wood_worktops/maple_3M_80_18mm_worktop_upstand.html
