Joining two pieces of worktop is a straightforward process with the right tools and the right knowhow. Most kitchen fitters will be skilled enough to create a Mason's mitre which is a seamless join using a router and worktop jig to cut a curved joint but you can also use a circular saw with a fine tooth blade to square cut the material and create a butt joint. The two pieces of worktop can then be joined using biscuit dowel and worktop connector bolts. We recommend using zip bolt connectors as they have different sizes which can be used on 18, 24 & 30 mm worktops. For jointing 18 & 24mm use the Mini Benchtop connector (6 x 100mm).

When your installer is fitting two pieces of worktop together it is likely there will be a slight gap so they should use a joint sealant. Bushboard Complete Sealant is a good match for Fenix. Colorfill can usually match all finishes including Fenix, Formica and Arpa Bloom. This will ensure there is no water ingress and give you a seamless aesthetic.

There are over 250 colours to choose from in the ColorFill range so it is likely that there is a shade for your choice of worktop. If you can't find the colour reference on the link below you can call them on 0191 259 0033.
