Squirrel® Fixings have been developed to allow fabricators to make a mechanical screw fixing into a 12mm sheet of solid surface material.
The ability to make a secure mechanical fixing in this way opens up many new applications to designers and fabricators.
Historically solid surface table tops would have been fabricated with an MDF sub-frame and down-stand. This allows for a pedestal leg to be fixed to the MDF. By using Squirrel® Fixings in a 12mm thick top, the labour costs when making a table top can be reduced by up to 50%. This makes for a cost effective solution for high wear areas such as cafes and restaurants.
When using 12mm thick solid surface material the top can be any shape, adding little to the fabrication costs.
