Factory Investment: Our Furnace Goes Green

 
We are pleased to announce the start of works in our factory to replace the furnace that is used to dispose of waste wood products. At System 6 Kitchens we pride ourselves in making our manufacturing process as environmentally friendly as possible and this recent investment is helping us realise this objective.

 

Our manufacturing process is already optimised to reduce waste using sophisticated manufacturing software, but it is inevitable that waste product is generated during manufacture.

 

The Talbotts 300kWt T automatic wood waste heating unit reduces the amount of waste going to landfill and reduces our carbon footprint due to using a non-fossil fuel that is carbon neutral to heat our premises.

 

We have carefully planned these works to ensure no interruption to our manufacturing process and will maintain our regular deliveries and 2-3 week leadtime. If you would like a tour of the System 6 Kitchens Factory and showroom, please do not hesitate to contact Helen Bartlett who will be happy to arrange this for you.

3. Adjustable shelf
All standard Base units are supplied with an adjustable shelf helping you with flexible storage solutions in your designs, and giving customers the opportunity to change a shelf height themselves at a later date. All shelves are colour matched by default and are edged using 0.8mm ABS edging.

4. 150mm adjustable leg with 2 part plinth clips on all base units
All Base units are supplied with adjustable legs which makes fitting and levelling our kitchen units a breeze. With 2 part plinth clips, fitting plinth couldn't be easier and gives a secure and reliable plinth that can take the abuse that comes with being a kickboard!

5. 0.8mm Colour matched ABS edging on all exposed edges
With a choice of 32 standard carcase colours and 25 additional colours available we carefully colour match our edging to ensure an exact match. The 0.8mm ABS edging is applied using heat and will not peel or flake throughout the 25 year warranty we offer on our kitchens.

Corner Base Units - Now supplied rigid
Starting this week (01/04/2013), we will begin a 1 month trial where corner base units – CBU90 and CBU88 – will be supplied as rigid units. Previously supplied flatpack, we have listened to our customer feedback and are now supplying these units as fully built, rigid units.

The building of these units will speed up the production line, reduce the likelihood of transit damage and the possibility of missing items. There is also the considerable time saving offered to our customers, due to these units no longer requiring assembly on site.

Should you require a CBU90 or CBU88 to be supplied as flatpack for access reasons then please request this during the quotation process where we will be happy to accommodate your request.

We would welcome any further feedback from our customers as to how we can improve our service to you, our customers.

Complex Curves? We've Got the Edge

Complex Curves? We've got the Edge

 
As part of the continual factory developments and improvements we are pleased to announce the successful installation and commissioning of a state of the art new edge bander.

This addition to the existing edge banding machines - which have been retained - has allowed us to increase our manufacturing capacity in line with our growing requirements.

The VITAP Smart 3 Contour Edge Banding & Trimming Machine is a vital addition to our manufacturing process, which allows us to keep up with modern day requirements for manufacturing curved units with curved shelves. The increase in demand for convex and concave units is something that we have seen over the last 12 months; With door manufacturers bringing out more and more options, System 6 Kitchens are ideally placed to offer flexible solutions. This is thanks to continuous investment in technology and our ability to offer bespoke, custom cabinetry as well as a range of 1300 standard units.

To view some of the cutting edge machinery that is used at System 6 you can view our video showing how a unit is made from start to finish.
