UK made melamine placemats
Stylish, heat sealed and durable
The stylish black coloured Regal Pro melamine placemats are made in the UK with a wooden hardboard centre which keeps the tablemat rigid, the base underneath has a soft corkbacked layer which keeps the surface of your dining table safe. These catering standard placemats are then topped off with a hard melamine surface which is heat sealed and can handle hot plates up to around 150ºC.
The principle advantage of this hard surface is that it stops moisture from being absorbed into the actual tablemat. This upper layer of melamine is food safe and very tough and helps prevent the tablemats from getting scratched or blistering. Usually when the surface of a placemat starts to get damaged then water and moisture spilling from wine or beer glasses can get inside the surface and causes marks and stains and to appear.
The sort of heavy, constant use catering situations faced by pubs, restaurants or care homes is often the cause of this type of damage. Fortunately the melamine helps to keep your placemats and coasters in a first class condition for a much longer period of time than with standard tablemats.
Classic coloured tablemats
Classic Black coloured placemats
The Black shade of the Regal Pro range of melamine placemats and coasters is just one of the various classic colours and shades available. The grey-black colour creates a classic look and feel for your dining room and the strong tones works well with formal styles of decoration.
The black colour is enhanced by the triple gold-yellow lines around the edge of the corkbacked placemats, which consists of one thick and two thin lines highlighting the classic look and feel of the Regal Pro collection.
These elegant rectangular table mats can be used on their own or with the matching square drinks coasters which are useful for holding your wine or water glass.
Easy care placemats, UK size
The Regal Black placemats are supplied unboxed as sets of six, UK sized, they measure 29.2cm x 21.6cm (11.5” x 8.5”) and have a 3.8mm thickness. Making them not just an attractive and stylish addition to your dining room, but they are also very simple to maintain. Just wipe away any stains or food spills with a soft damp cloth. The melamine surface is very strong and can survive more vigorous rubbing if needed, but to avoid affecting the printed colour, chemicals should not be used.
The corkbacked base and hardboard centre mean the melamine placemats should not be immersed in water and are also not suitable for placing in a dishwasher, as the cork will absorb the water and damage the underneath of the placemat.
Use black placemats in your home
If you want to avoid staining your dining table or tablecloth at mealtimes, one of the best things to do is start using some black placemats. You can find two types of tablemats, either those that are totally plain and without any sort of design, and those that have some image or pattern. The mats with designs mainly have multiple colours, but if you select from the plain colour range then black is one of the more popular colours for a traditional look.
The black placemats that we make are of a high quality, being made with a melamine surface, which is a heat resistant material, so you can relax knowing that they will protect your dining table. You can have a look through our website to see the available colours in the Regal range and hopefully find one to your liking.
There are many criteria that you need to take into account when making a purchase like this. One of the more practical decisions is to look at the materials in which they are made and give some thought about the type of use you are going to give them. For example, our black placemats made with a melamine surface are going to be more durable than standard domestic mats. In addition to using them at mealtimes, you can also incorporate them around the home to create a subtle a decorative touch.
