ANY DRAWER ON SITE IN ONLY 15 MINUTES
Sink drawers wrapping around the waste pipes are great, but:
Existing sink drawers on the market are too inflexible and too expensive.
The pipes are never quite where you expected them to be
Fabricated sink drawers are a nuisance to make and are often wrong.
The fitting top quality.
WHAT SETS US APART?
HOW IT WORKS
Fixol is a universal kit that allows you to make a cut-out in a drawer. You normally fit Fixol after you have installed the kitchen, sink & waste. This way you are sure not to lose any precious space in the drawer. You can also, if it suits pre-fit it in the factory, if you’re pretty confident you know where the pipes will end up. However, it is far better for your client to fit it AFTER the plumbing has been fitted off.
Fixol can be used for any cut-out in a drawer. No matter if a sink, waste or plumbing disturbs the drawer, Fixol allows you to solve the problem.
Every kitchen installer should have 1 or 2 in their van, in order to fix it in 15 minutes, (in case it’s not pre-supplied by the factory).
Fixol is suited for all drawers with a 16 mm thick base & back, using any of BLUM, HETTICH, GRASS, etc., runners.

This set fits any drawer?
The Fixol unit will fit any drawer with a 16 mm thick base & back, using any of BLUM, HETTICH, GRASS, etc., and of which the distance between the bottom and the top of the back is a min of 70mm., and a max of 223mm using side extensions.
What tools and experience do I need?
As the old saying goes, measure twice, cut once.
Minimum equipment required is, a jigsaw, a screwdriver and a good quality Mould Resistant Silicone. If available onsite, a drop saw or a small bench saw will give a much better finish.
