Grothouse Introduces Anvil Metal Countertops

Grothouse Introduces Anvil Metal CountertopsIntroducing Anvil Metal Countertops, a revolutionary new series of metal gilded wood surfaces available exclusively from Grothouse. Anvil is a new product line that employs masterful finishing techniques to coat wooden countertops in a finish of real metal particles.

The Anvil line finishes can be placed on real wood surfaces to allow the natural grain and imperfections of wood to show through.

Unlike traditional metal countertops, Anvil can be used in curved profile applications and complex shapes not previously possible in sheet metal products.

Anvil surfaces are exterior rated when combined with our exterior substrates and are available with any Grothouse edge treatment.

Lead time is 6-8 weeks. Anvil surfaces can be left unfinished, or finished with Durata® waterproof permanent finish. They are easy to clean, and come with a 1 year warranty.

Anvil Metal Countertops are available in 8 metal coatings which take on completely different characteristics depending upon the wood or substrate they cover.
