HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS When Mark Walsh went to buy a sheet of clear Perspex to attach to his pool gate so his children couldn't get a foothold to open it, he discovered a place tucked away in Chatswood that had some remarkable products. Allplastics Engineering managing director Vic Kalloghlian says the company machines and fabricates materials for the commercial industry and has innovative finishes ideal for the home renovator. When I was at the showroom I noticed a wall of decorative panels. That would be TotalStone, a wall panel. There are 16 designs and it is available in decorative finishes depicting brick patterns, slate, and stone. It looks like the real or natural thing. Is it for inside or outside? TotalStone is suitable for both, it doesn't fade in the sun and is ideal for renovators who want a quick fix for walls, ceilings, wherever a feature is needed. I do most of the renovation work on my own, would I have to get some help? This is an ideal product for a handy person. It comes in panels 2.8m wide and 1.3m high which are quite large for one person to carry although they are lightweight and easy handle by those who are not strong. How do you attach it and can it be cut easily? It simply screws to the wall or ceiling and can be cut with a jig-saw. Joins and screws are masked with Mastic then painted to integrate the panel. I also saw what looked to be glass panels in different designs that looked interesting. This is Acryform a decorative slumped acrylic sheet designed for interior or exterior use. It is difficult for the eye to differentiate between slumped glass and Acryform. It is ideal for kitchen splashbacks and feature panels. How many different patterns are there? There are 10 patterns and we can custom-design textures on request. You also have a display kitchen that was interesting -- what is the finish on this? That would be our Perspex range, it is ideal for an insert in kitchen cupboard doors as it doesn't shatter like glass, the frost range will not fingermark and being lightweight prolongs the life of fittings. We also have the Pearlescent range for splashbacks although it is not heat-resistant and not for use behind an oven or cooktop.
