State-of-the-Art Machinery

We have safeguarded the quality of our kitchens and future-proofed our production capabilities by investing in state-of-the-art machinery, materials and process technologies.

machine-1Using our CNC router to cut and pre-drill a panel, we can guarantee accuracy of up to 0.05mm; far superior to results achieved with the typical beam saw and post-cut drilling method. Combined with our diamond-tipped, high-pressure carbide cutters, we’re able to achieve highly accurate, blemish-free panels for your project.
machine-2We chose a Biesse edge bander as the company is recognised for its innovative solutions. With this model, not only are we able to give you the best finished edge on the market, we can also offer you the very latest in edge banding technology: the AirForce System.

AirForce has won multiple innovation awards world-wide, including the first ever presented for hot air banding. Using “clean – green” technology, it’s an environmentally-friendly system which eliminates glue and fumes as well as delivering immaculate finished results:

  • Zero glue line
  • Perfect colour match
  • Heat and humidity resistant

We believe this commitment to machinery investment guarantees you one of the most impressively manufactured products on the market today.

Precision Construction; Stringent Quality Assurance

There are many ways to construct a cabinet; some better than others!

At Kings, we use the traditional tongue and groove joinery technique. This means we can guarantee your cabinets will be ‘square’. And the glue we use is a moisture-resistant Polyurethane system, one of the strongest of its kind.

machine-3

Our manufacturing management system is anything but traditional! We have a totally bespoke software package which takes your designs, translates them into a production specification and communicates that directly to the CNC and edge banding machines. This puts your project immediately into production and enables us to deploy a highly-efficient, JIT (Just in Time) manufacturing process.

Each process has been planned carefully by our team of professionals to manage manual input, maximising accuracy and minimising the chance of human error.

Save

We use our human skills where machines aren’t as effective, notably for project management and stringent quality checks, which take place throughout the process:

  1. On all deliveries into Kings Design’s production facility
  2. Before processing any material into production or installation
  3. On sheet materials, once they have been cut, before edge banding
  4. After edge banding before construction of units
  5. Before packing in our production facility
  6. Once delivered to site

We’d like to say nothing can arrive on site damaged, but in reality, it may happen; rest assured, we’ll simply remake and replace the items without any fuss (and our JIT system means it’s very quick too).

Top Quality Materials

With Kings Design you are getting a totally bespoke solution; we don’t have any standard size cabinets sitting on a shelf ready to fill your order… not one! So when you place your order, we allocate materials specifically for your project.

And those materials have been extensively researched and tested by our experts, to ensure you get the equivalent of the Bentley and Rolls Royce’s of the wood and sheet material world! For instance, all of our carcasses are 18mm thick MFC, MDF or Plywood as standard… and yes, that includes the back too!

Some of the renowned board manufacturers include Egger & Xylo Cleaf.

edgingEvery single panel with an exposed edge comes to you finished with the best edge banding money can buy.

We use minimum 0.8mm thick edging, maximum 3mm, depending on what is right for your specific project. Our research and testing shows 1mm edging is the optimum for a door panel and 0.8mm for a carcass. As one of a very few select companies in the UK to own an Airforce edge bander, we can offer you the best quality, moisture resistant and robust edging solution on the market.

hingesJust as we look to Italy for design innovation, we look to Germany for precision-engineered hardware. And we’ve found a fully-integrated, soft-closing, concealed hinge for all your doors: Sensys.

Sensys is a low, slim-line design, with a shallow cup depth. All of which means it’s very versatile (suitable for thinner doors or wider external radii); it creates minimal visible reveals (for a seamless look); and leaves ample space for internal drawers. The direct adjustment feature makes it easy to set door depth and cam screws in the mounting plate allow fast door height adjustment too.

Best of all, our Sensys hinges come with a genuine Lifetime Guarantee: so as with everything else we offer, you can be sure you’re getting the very best.

drawersYour drawers need to take weight and work effectively over an extended period of time. So again, we looked to Germany for a robustly-engineered solution. In our view, we found the very best drawer system in the world: ArchiTech.

The trend is for wider and deeper drawers, with larger and heavier front panels than ever before. Which is where ArchiTech comes into its own: maintaining a smooth, quiet running action and exceptional stability, even with loads up to 80kg. So you can fill those deep drawers without a worry!

The secret? It’s outstanding Actro runner. Drawers open with effortless ease and hardly any noticeable resistance, thanks to a unique prism principle and synchronized runner profiles which ensure optimum load distribution and running performance. The integral Silent System closes the drawers just as smoothly and gently too.

With a wealth of internal configuration options and colour-coordinated components, ArchiTech offers incredible creative and design flexibility alongside impressive performance statistics.

  • Minimum sagging values
  • Maximum lateral stability also for wide pull-outs
  • Available in 40, 60 and 80 kg loading categories

We believe anyone ever experiencing ArchiTech drawers won’t want to be without them ever again!
