The Stellex team recently completed the installation of a range of heated and chilled units for a busy café within the Newcastle University campus. The café required an expansion to increase their product range and customer throughput, while limiting the impact on table and seating areas.
Using our expert manufacturing skills, we created a curved display counter and all units were finished with a blue front panelling to match the University’s brand. Another example of how our units can be designed for any space and for any business.
To see more images of this installation, please visit our project photo album on our Facebook page.
Whether it’s in a house, an office, or a restaurant, our lighting systems have been designed to be more than just lights. They each have a unique look and feel to add to the ambience and theme wherever they are installed.
Our Copper Pipe Lighting System brings a luxurious quality that will see people looking up when they enter a room. Made from raw copper pipe that is covered in a clear coat for a lasting finish, we then design a pipe network that is always unique to fit the space available.
For a more minimalist and modern feel, we have the Gas Pipework Lighting System. Using gas pipes that are either black painted, or galvanised, we combine pipe bends and fittings to create a truly one-off product.
Our Conduit Lighting System brings an industrial feel to a room. Produced in raw mild steel or plated electrical conduit, the product is then coated for long-lasting protection. As with all of our lighting systems, they can be fitted with different lamp options from bare filament to the latest LEDs.
If you are looking to light up a room with something original, please contact a member of our team to discuss design ideas and the different options available to you.

New In-House Manufacturing
Our ever evolving product range makes Stellex the first choice for businesses throughout the UK. We have expanded our capability to carry out in house manufacture using solid surface materials, such as Corian and Hanex along with joinery works, meaning we are more competitive and growing the business to benefit you, our ever expanding customer base.
Here are some examples of counter tops and fronts made from timber and Corian:
We have just completed some bespoke heavy duty office desks. Using robust materials throughout, they really are made to last. We are now manufacturing a selection of matching cupboards and filing drawers and we will be sharing images for these very soon!
We have just completed a new batch of Beverage Trolleys for the NHS. As with all of our products, we can manufacture them to the customers requirements. These trolleys come complete with hot water boilers, plenty of storage space and optional dispensers.
If you are looking for food carts, or beverage trolleys, please visit our Vending Carts page for further details.
Although many of our clients are businesses, we also work with private individuals that are looking for a bespoke alternative to the everyday options on the market. We recently had the pleasure of designing, manufacturing and installing this new domestic kitchen unit, which is a good example of our bespoke work. Made from stainless steel with a special matt finish, the unit includes a handmade sink and an induction hob with a built in ‘Bora’ extraction unit. There is also a recycling compartment and lots of storage space.
The client was delighted with the end result, as are we!
Powder Coating is a protective finish made up of finely ground particles of pigment and resin. This is then charged with static electricity and sprayed on to steel that is electrically grounded. It is then evenly melted and cooled into a thin durable film.
Powder Coating is an option available on many of our products and comes with a long list of benefits. The main advantage is the added durability. It provides a protective barrier to prevent corrosion and unlike other treatments, it is chip resistant. For hygiene conscious businesses this is an ideal choice.
Powder Coating can also be applied in a wide range of colours and will keep the product looking brighter and vibrant for longer than a painted alternative. It is also more environmentally friendly than paint, as it contains no harmful solvents and does not emit vapours or fumes.
Many of our clients have chosen this finish and you can see some examples in the photos below. Our team are always ready to answer your calls and emails about products you are interested in and we can guide you through the different finish options available to you. CLICK HERE to contact us.
