metis® slimline solid surfaces come with a 10 year manufacturing guarantee provided the surface has been installed in accordance with the installation instructions and the surfaces have been used for their intended purpose.

In addition, metis® slimline solid surfaces have been awarded the FIRA Gold Award for product excellence which ensures all surfaces are manufactured to the highest standard with the most superior materials.

Routine Cleaning
metis® slimline solid surfaces do not require any specialist cleaning regimes, most dirt and light residue will easily wipe off with a damp cloth and soapy water. The surface should then be rinsed with clean water and wiped dry. Persistent marks can be removed by using a mild abrasive cleaner, but harsh scouring powders should be avoided.

If in doubt, consult the ‘Care and Maintenance’ manual.

Minor scratching
Kitchen utensils and crockery (particularly the unglazed bases) can sometimes cause scratches that will be more evident on darker colours.

The surface can be damaged by scratching or cutting with knives, so the use of a cutting board is essential. Any minor scratches can be removed easily using the grey abrasive pad and other items from the metis® Care Kit.

Please refer to the ‘Care and Maintenance’ manual.

metis® slimline solid surfaces will withstand heat better than many alternative surface materials.

However, all hot pots, pans and other heat generating devices should always be placed on a trivet or worktop protector rods to prevent extreme heat having prolonged and direct contact with the surface.

Boiling water and cooking splashes do not harm the surface.

metis®  care kit
To help maintain your metis® slimline solid surfaces, a metis® Care Kit is available from your retailer.

This Care Kit contains all you need to make minor repairs to the surface including a special countertop cleaner that helps to maintain, protect and build up lustre,  particularly on darker colours.

metis® slimline solid surfaces, unlike marble and granite, are not porous and will resist most household chemicals including alcohol and cosmetics.

However, some chemicals and strong dyes can cause damage and discolouration. If spillage occurs, wipe off immediately and rinse area thoroughly.

Standard Woodworking Tools
minerva® can easily be cut on site ready for jointing using standard woodworking tools and equipment.
