What material do you use?

We only use the highest quality, industrial grade materials available to the industry:

  • Our laminate is sourced from Canadian suppliers, supporting our local economy;
  • We use is an industrial grade particleboard, which is covered with a thermal-fused laminate;
  • The drawer faces are made from thermal-fused MDF (the industry standard);
  • Thermal-fused laminate is the same material used in the production of high–pressure laminate (Formica);
  •  It is non-flammable as well as being heat, shrink and abrasion resistant.  It is stronger than vinyl,
    kortron or polyester;
  • The finish will not scuff, peel or come off when using cleansers;
  • Our chrome rods are made of heavy-duty steel (20 gauge);
  • We use German hardware on the drawers and fittings.

  • We will not waste your time with fancy sales tactics;
  • We are upfront, honest, and want to earn your business for the long term.

Does your closet system stand on the floor or hang on the wall?

We strongly recommend a floor-mounted system as it is much stronger than a wall-mounted system.

Do you offer wall-mounted closet systems?

Yes, we can give our customers the option of choosing wall mounted units,
but only in special circumstances when we have no other option. It is simply not as strong.

How deep are your units?

Our shelving is 14" deep, which gives you 15% more storage per shelf than 12" deep shelving.

This should be closet industry standard, but some companies still use smaller shelving.

If desired, we can modify the depth of our units.

How high are your units?

Our closet systems can be customized to fit any ceiling height.
Our standard height is 85 inches. This is based on a typical ceiling height of 8 feet,
which leaves about a foot of shelf space along the full length of the top shelf.

  • Double-hang is 41" top and bottom and works well for people up to the height of 6 feet 3 inches;
  • Long hanging is 65";
  • Medium hang is 50" - 55".

Do you do doors?

Yes, we can supply you with doors to complement your design. However, we do not sell traditional,
sliding or bi-fold doors to go over the opening to your closet.

We recommend that you source those types of doors locally.

Speak to your designer regarding the door options we offer.

Are your closet systems adjustable?

Certainly! Our adjustable shelves sit on pins and can be moved easily.

The locking cam shelves and hanging rods can be adjusted up or down with a screwdriver or screwgun.

How long should a design consultation take?

The average consultation takes 60 minutes - but this can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project.

If you prefer to get the process started sooner, we can do so via email, all we need are the dimensions of your closet(s).

What's your turnaround time for installation?

  • For in-stock items: 1-2 weeks, on average;
  • For out-of-stock / special-order items: 2-3 weeks;

How long should an installation take?

Average installation time is a day - again, this can vary depending on the size and complexity of the job.
