Kitchen

When connecting kitchen elements made of board materials like MDF, chipboard or LVL, it is paramount to avoid splitting on the material. The firm insertion of the screw tip, head shapes with milling pockets and increased tightening torques of SPAX screws ensure successful kitchen installation whilst simultaneously protecting the material. 

The main facts at a glance

  • When it comes to interior projects in the kitchen, SPAX tends to be used for shelving and DIY cabinets.
  • Although screws are not usually exposed to higher loads or humidity, there are still a few things to consider depending on where they need to be used. 
  • But, of course, SPAX has the perfect screw for every challenge.

In kitchens, SPAX screws are mostly used when shelving or a DIY cabinet needs to be installed. Such a task involves clamping together elements like side walls, worktops, back walls, sideboards or kitchen cabinet fittings and making sure they remain firm. Screws do not therefore tend to be exposed to high static loads. And because kitchens are rarely prone to any major humidity, screw requirements for corrosion protection are also low.

What do I need to know?

 

Even if there are not too many requirements for such a project, it is important to consider a few points when choosing which screws to use. Like all pieces of furniture, kitchen elements are usually made of board materials like MDF, chipboard or LVL. This means you have to take special care not to split the panel when fastening screws along edges. Given that such boards often have coated surfaces, it is also important to ensure that the screw tip does not slip upon insertion. The screw head must not pierce through the thin hardboard used on cabinet rear walls. Finally, you should also make sure that screw heads do not protrude so far into the body that they impede the fitting of hinges or drawer runners. Head shapes with milling pockets below also remove the need to pre-drill the drill hole. 

What solutions does SPAX offer?

 

When it comes to interior design projects, there is the perfect SPAX for every idea. SPAX-M is ideal for kitchen construction with all MDF and HDF materials. To fasten metal fittings with through-hole, SPAX with pan head are the answer. The SPAX flat flange head screw with T-STAR plus or cross recess makes light work of fastening hardboard back walls on kitchen cabinets. During fastening, the SPAX flange head screw offers increased tightening torques without damaging or deforming the material. It goes without saying that all of the above screws feature a CUT or 4CUT point. So whatever your interior project entails, pre-drilling is a thing of the past. And if you wish to conceal your work a little, SPAX screw heads with centre drill can be easily covered with a matching plastic decorative cap.
