When you order your Laminate worktops from DIY Kitchens, you get a choice of 2 different edge profiles. Square Edged & the more well known Quadra profile. These are explained in more detail below.
Quadra profile laminate worktops
The Duropal Quadra profile gives a nice rounded edge to the front of your worktop, which gives a smooth finish. The front edge of a Quadra profile worktop is produced using a process called postforming where the top surface and front edge are formed from one continuous piece of laminate.
Please note that Quadra profile worktops CANNOT be used over curved base units.
Square edged laminate worktops
Have you ever wanted a laminate worktop, shaped to match the curves on your base unit? Well now you can!
Once you have chosen a laminate worktop finish, you can select several Square Edged pieces to match the layout of your kitchen. These pieces are available for use with curved ends, island layouts, peninsular layouts and much more.
The square matching edges are applied to make the worktop look like it has been moulded to shape, with no bare chipboard edges showing.
Square Matching edges are a hardwearing plastic edging, either 1.5mm or 2mm in thickness (depending on the worktop) that have a solid colour throughout the material, so you can see an unobtrusive colour-matched edge rather than the dark brown edge normally seen with standard laminate edging.
Square Edged laminate worktops are incredibly versatile and can be used on straight lines, internal curves, external curves and even S-Shapes.
Curved Square Edged worktop sizes available
If you are thinking of having a curved end to one of your kitchen runs using Square Edged laminate then here are the lengths of Square Edge worktops that are available to you.

Straight run Square Edged laminate worktop pieces
These worktop pieces are edged on the front and the 2 sides.
Quadra Profile and Square Edged worktops CANNOT be jointed together. If you have curved worktops as part of your design then you will need to purchase straight lengths of the Square Edged worktops as well, if you have a run in your kitchen that requires a straight length of worktop.
The exception to this is where you have a stand-alone shaped kitchen island. This could be in Square Matching edge even if the rest of the kitchen is Quadra profile. This would of course depend on you being happy with the slightly different appearance of the two profiles.
Also, due to the difference in materials and the manufacturing processes, the edges may have a “slightly” different appearance to the worktop but this is within industry tolerances.
