Merillat Basics Construction

  1. Constructed for daily use (3/8” thick end panels attached with wood-to-wood glue and staples)
  2. Moisture Resistant (natural maple laminate interiors)
  3. Strong and sturdy frames (1½” wide front, 3/4” thick, solid wood)
  4. Reinforced components (¼” thick engineered wood back extends all the way to the floor for added strength to reinforce back corners of the cabinet.)
  5. Improved overall strength (solid pine or Douglas fir hang rails for greater rigidity)
  6. Structurally square design (four engineered wood gussets hold cabinet square and are mounted in grooves below the top surface; ½” thick)
  7. More storage (deeper drawer for 30% more volume)
  8. Better alignment (dual captured self-aligning drawer guides)
  9. Simple installation (pre-drilled holes in back panel for easy installation of pull out trays)
  10. Solid hold (new, locking shelf clips hold shelf securely)
  11. Under Shelf Support (cabinets 27” and wider will have support cleat as shown)
