Kitchen Corner Wall Unit Door Problem


Postby heat15 » Thu Oct 16, 2008 11:14 am

Can anyone help, I've recently bought and fitted my own kitchen however I've become stuck (and quite annoyed) by the corner wall unit. I've got 2 x 300mm doors and a baton (this where I'm stuck) but I don't know where to fix the baton. Should this be fixed to the corner unit? if so it will obstruct the access. If it should attach to the end of one of the doors (which makes more sense) is there a descreet method I could use rather than just a couple of screws?

Thanks for any help you can provide

normally these are fixed to the edge of one of the doors. usually pre-drilled holes to do it. if no pre-drilled holes then it suggests that it fixes to the unit. there are different types, you need to refer to the instructions that came with the unit.

These are called L shaped corner units. Both doors are hinged normally 180 degree hinges, the piece of wood is the corner fillet and is fixed to one of the doors. Normally these corner units only have one handle or knob which is fitted to the door that you have not attached the fillet to.

THE L SHAPED CORNER FILLET IS GENARALLY ATTACHED TO THE DOOR HOWEVER I HAVE SEEN THEM FITTED TO THE UNIT ITSELF. YOU WILL DEF NEED 170 DEGREE HINGES OTHERWISE YOU WONT BE ABLE TO OPEN THE DOORS ENOUGH ITS BEST TO ATTACH HANDLES TO BOTH DOORS AS WELL.FIX THE FILLET WITH FIXING BRACKETS WHICH SHOULD BE SUPPLIED
