Are Your Cabinets at Risk of Moisture Damage?

All kitchen cabinetry and interiors are at risk of moisture damage, but there is a way to avoid any costly mistakes during your new kitchen build.

Moisture is typically unavoidable in kitchens due to steam, washing up and general humidity. Many cabinets in older kitchen designs can therefore fall victim to moisture damage, in the form of bubbling, lifting and warping.

Jag’s AQUA-SEAL™ edge banding system dramatically reduces the likelihood of moisture damage to your cabinets.

AQUA-SEAL™ is a new highly advanced edge banding system that gives melamine and acrylic cabinet doors a fantastic seamless look. This means that Jag Kitchens are able to produce melamine and acrylic doors that are very resistant to chipping, but also highly moisture resistant.

Jag Kitchens wanted to ensure that the AQUA-SEAL™ product could stand the test of time, so put their AQUA-SEAL™ edge banded doors through the ultimate torture test! Blocks of both AQUA-SEAL™ edged doors and conventionally edge banded doors were put through a full hot dishwasher cycle as well as a hot bath in an oven, to see how they stood up to ultimate moisture testing.

classic kitchen 1The outcome of the AQUA-SEAL™ edged blocks was so fantastic – i.e. they were unscathed while the conventional edged blocks were bloated and damaged – that it meant Jag Kitchens is confident in offering a 10 year warranty on this product.

All of Jag Kitchens’ edged doors and cabinet parts are now edged using the AQUA-SEAL™ edge banding system. You can be confident that when you purchase a kitchen through Jag Kitchens, your cabinet doors and parts will remain moisture-damage free for the long run.

The beauty of choosing Jag Kitchens is that our experienced designers know what works and what doesn’t – and can help you make design choices for cabinetry that you can be confident in.
