I need to purchase a product I can wipe for a number of shelves.
Is melamine the answer.
Need to consider budget.
Need 3 metre lengths or 1.5 metre.
Comes in different widths
I have done so much research, the one company I have found isn't doing online orders at this time.
15mm or 18mm
Any suggestion of where I can purchase.
Many thanks

B & Q, Homebase, wickes all sell shelving I’m sure they’d advise you too.

Thanks for your response.
Unfortunately they don't sell the lengths I need. They sell in length 2.4 m.

B & Q will cut you the size you require although you may have to pay for the whole length.

B&Q offer a free cutting service and I have used it many times however I need 14 length of 1.5 and cutting from 2.4 is a big waste and cost which I am trying to avoid.
I have found a company but they are not selling on line at this time. I rang them today and the lady said give a a week and they may be back on line so fingers crossed.
thank for your responses much appreciated.

Have you looked at Ikea? I got the shelves for our home office there, very pleased with them.

Ikea do deliver too.

I don't know where you are located but google melamine mdf cut to size and loads came up, give it a go.

I checked out Ikea but they don't have what I am after, done so much googling also.
I've bought the metal uprights and brackets for the shelving already just the shelves I need.
Thanks every one for your suggestions much appreciated.
