OUR APPROACH TO ISLAND FINISHES & COUNTERTOPS
OUR ISLAND FINISHES
Each RTA outdoor kitchen is handmade. This begins by collaborating with exterior designers and master craftsmen to make a “standard” profile. This standard offering includes finishes in Stone, Wood, Brick, and Modern Concrete. We offer these finishes in many colors for more variety.
Since RTA is a provider of complete outdoor kitchens, we have to ensure every component is top-quality. RTA has developed an outdoor concrete countertop solution that works in all climates. This solution is our Engineered Concrete Composite (ECC) and Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC). This type of concrete is durable and exclusive to our kitchens. To learn more about ECC and UHPC, visit our Technology & Approach page. See below to view our countertop options.
1.25" CHISELED EDGE COUNTERTOPS
Our stone, wood, and brick outdoor kitchens come standard with a 1.25″ chiseled edge concrete countertop. We manufacture these countertops with Engineered Concrete Composite reinforced with composite rebar. There is a high density foam in the core of our countertops that reduce heat absorption from the sun, providing a surface that is useable all day. This foam core also reduces the weight, making this countertop a breeze for two people to handle and install. Our chiseled edge countertops are factory sealed with a water based, food safe sealer.
1.25" CLEAN EDGE COUNTERTOPS
Our clean edge countertops come standard on our Modern Concrete outdoor kitchens. The clean edge countertops are also available as an upgrade on our stone, wood, and brick outdoor kitchens. We manufacture these countertops with Ultra High Performance Concrete reinforced with steel fibers and composite rebar. Three to four people are required for proper handling, placement, and installation. Our clean edge tops are factory sealed with a quartz nano-coating. *Clean edge countertops are subject to an additional charge.
3 CM GRANITE COUNTERTOPS
RTA also offers granite countertop options for customers. We work with a granite distributor and local fabricator to provide several options of 3 cm granite. Granite countertops are special order items, adding 1-2 weeks on standard delivery. These countertops require three to four people for proper handling and installation. Granite countertops must be sealed upon placement and before installing the grill or appliances.
