Material Specifications

  Vertical Panels,
Shelves and
Drawer Fronts

All vertical panels, adjustable shelves and locking shelves are made of 3/4" thick thermally fused melamine panels. Under intense heat and pressure melamine resin and particle board are fused together. Melamine Coated Panel known as (MCP) is highly resistant to scratch, very good impact characteristic and provides the ease of maintenance. Use of 3/4" thick panels provides additional strength against shelf warping and deflection. Five of the most popular MCP colors are White, Antique White, Maple, Apple and Sunset for our Pre Designed Closets section.

   
  Drawer Boxes

Our drawers are made of five pieces; two sides, front, back and bottom. The bottom of the drawer boxes are flushed with the sides, the front and the back. This results in a very smooth operation when opening and closing drawers. In almost all drawers in the market there is a lip at the bottom which generally catches the clothing. All drawer box parts are made of 5/8" thick white MCP (Melamine Coated Panels) and are dowelled and glued together. In addition we use four 2" long screws to further secure the front and back to the drawer box bottom. This would ensure a very high quality drawer box which will last for many years.

   
  Rod and Supports

We use an oval shape rod 1 1/4"x 11/16" made of 1/16" thick steel with a polished chrome finish. Rod supports are made of steel, chrome plated with 2 pins on the back for insertion in 32 mm system holes.

To ensure the stability of the rods, we always add a semi fixed shelf directly above the rod. Vertical panels, if not supported properly would slightly buckle as time goes by. This would result in extra space where the rods are. As a result they become loose or simply drop off their supports.

   
  Drawer Slides

We use 100 lbs capacity full extension, telescoping, side mounted slides made of high quality steel in zinc finish with built in ball bearings for a smooth operation.

   
  Handles

Our Wire pull Handles are made of 1/4 " diameter steel finished in shiny brass, brushed brass, shiny chrome, brushed chrome. 4 1/8" overall length (96 mm or 3 3/4 " center to center of holes) and 1 1/8" deep.
