Overview of cabinet constructions

Take a peek inside cabinets

Side view


Variables have been applied when we design and program kitchens. Most of our cabinet models are driven by database and variables for increasing the efficiency of planning.

Variable structure

We break down the variables into several components when we build up the structure.
It consists the following components:

  • Toe kick height
  • Base unit height and depth
  • Benchtop thickness
  • Niche space
  • Wall unit height and depth
  • Tall cabinet height and depth

Flexible dimensions

With the great help of variable controls, the kitchen planning can be driven by database, therefore, we can quickly change the kitchen system base on your requirement.
For example, we can switch among the kitchen systems (S72 / S73 / S75 S75X / S78 / S80) by few clicks or few numbers, all the changes of hardware and connector drillings will be re-calculated or re-generated in the CAD system.

Modeling method

Parametric functions

We applied an Autocad based CAD CAM solution to build our cabinet models, plus the database driven functions for parametric programming. 

What we do, we build up all the necessary rules and principles first, then apply them to make the cabinet models driven by all types of variables. 

This will speed up our programming a bit, and make the production process smoothly. 

Back constructions

Grooved construction
Inset construction
Onset construction

Cabinet back construction

We offer three options for cabinet back panels, they are :

  • Grooved construction, 
  • Inset construction, and 
  • Onset construction

You may need these method for different situations. 

Shelf connection

Fixed shelf connector

For kitchen and some wardrobe units, it makes the assembling work easier with Hafele Rafix connector. So we programmed the connector with right inserting logical rules to make it works.

Adjustable shelf connector

This type of shelf stud different from the normal plastic style. It requires two way drilling, the one on side panel and another one at the bottom of shelf panel. 

The advantage of this type of connector is that, it not only allows extra weight on shelves, but “locks” the adjustable shelves for safety.
