The best products desire the best components and our ingenious fixing will streamline your manufacturing costs. Space-Plug is an award winning innovation business that has been supporting kitchen, bathroom and bedroom cabinetry manufacturers and installers for the best part of 10 years. To date Space-Plug has sold over 6 million of our fixings to kitchen, bathroom and bedroom cabinetry manufacturers around the world. Our unique patented product, saves both valuable time and money, when manufacturing and installing a cabinet base unit.
Our fixings are currently being used by thousands of kitchen cabinetry makers and installers all over the world. Affectionately known as the "kitchen fitters friend". Our adjustable spacer fixing, reduces the amount of materials used to manufactuer kitchen units (or any other type of base unit) and by reducing the weight of each unit, this reduces shipping and packaging costs. Kitchen installers embrace the time saved using them and also they create less waste as the units fabrication isn't compromised to accomodate pipes and cables.
All the tooling to make our products is based in the UK, on the South Coast of England to be precise. We are not reliant on the manufacture of our products overseas. We are agile and flexible to accomodate any sized order within a short turnaround.
Wren Kitchens provide our fixings in the box for their customers. You can read about why they chose to work with us in our case study.
And please remember, it usually takes just ONE adjustable spacer fixing to securely fix ONE base cabinet to a wall. A huge reduction on the amount of components used compared with traditional fixing methods.
Kitchen base units require a service void to accommodate pipework. Whether your base units voids are 30mm or 70mm in depth the adjustable spacer fixing bridges the gap up to 80mm.
For the kitchen installer or home DIYer, there is no more working in tight spaces at awkward angles - they can just work straight on. With our adjustable spacer fixing they have the entire cross-brace for fixing. Easy to avoid pipework or even to line up with wall studs to avoid dreaded cavity wall fixings. It provides the kitchen installer complete freedom to fit as required.
They can even standoff further than the depths of the sides to accommodate deeper worktops.
Our adjustable spacer fixing is accurate, there is no need to mark, just simply fix whilst the base unit is in place exactly where you want to. Wren Kitchens took one look at our product and said "That's a no brainer". Wren Kitchens sell their base unit's with our adjustable spacer fixing in the box. Please read our case study for more information.Read Wren Kitchen Case Study
Our adjustable spacer fixing also can be used on cabinetry manufactured with no sides. This might not be a concept that as a manufacturer you have considered. Probably because up until now there was no alternative. However, there are custom kitchen cabinet makers in the UK that have adopted the idea that we have called AFS - Advanced Fixing System. Chris Sharp Cabinets is one such cabinet maker that uses AFS and here is why;
Your manufacturing process has less impact on the planet. If every kitchen manufacturer in the UK moved to Space-Plug ASF there would be enough board saved EVERY YEAR to lay a path of 8x4's from London to Paris.
Removing the service void sides to your base cabinets is great for your bottom line, great for the customer, and great for the environment.Read Chris Sharp Cabinets Case Study
