TKC's Quickcab saves 75% of cabinet assembly time
The pre-fitted cam and dowel design on TKC's new 'Quickcab' cabinets means that a standard 12-unit kitchen can be assembled in 25 minutes, giving installers an estimated time saving of up to 75%.
Quickcab cabinets come with TKC's standard specification of an 18mm board and 18mm solid back panel on the base unit, and can be assembled in two minutes due to their innovative design, compared with 7.5 to 10 minutes for a standard flat-pack cabinet.
"Quickcab was a piece of cake to put together, you literally just push the pieces into place and tighten," says Jason of J & K Kitchens. "It saved me hours through the day and meant I didn't have bits left or missing which can be annoying. It didn't take me longer than two minutes to put it together. I'd definitely use it again and I was really impressed with the carcase itself."
The Quickcab cabinets are available in stone grey, designed to coordinate with TKC's six grey and anthracite kitchen doors to reflect the trend for these neutral tones in interiors, which shows no signs of slowing.
Says Neil Taggart, marketing manager at TKC:
"Our innovative new Quickcab cabinets are effectively the 'missing link' between flat pack and rigid cabinets, using the cam and dowel construction trusted by fitters. Anything that saves fitters and retailers time without compromising on quality is a great benefit, so we are confident that this product will prove a popular choice as a quality, time-saving and value for money cabinet option."
Quickcab cabinets are now on display in the newly-refurbished trade-only showroom at TKC's Denton headquarters, to demonstrate how quick and easy they are to assemble. A new, four-page brochure is available now which includes the technical specification and pricing of the cabinets.
A short video showing the speed and simplicity of assembly is available to view by visiting the TKC website.
