Modeller | Getting Started

How it Works

The Modeller system is made up of modular cabinet configurations and versatile shelf components supported by our universal rail system with a free professional design help service.

Modular Cabinets

Modeller components are fundamentally designed to be interchangeable. All our cabinets are compatible with any of our door or drawer options.

Versatile Components

Three widths (24", 30" 32") six depths (10" 12" 12.5" 15" 18" 24") and two wood options( black walnut or White Oak), over a hundred interchangeable components, the variations are limitless.

Universal Rails

Supporting everything is our universal rail system; solid wood wall mounted rials with 32mm indexed mounting points. Everything attaches to rails with our unique one-piece, continuous brackets rods.

Our free professional design service can help you decide on your setup. Not sure what would work best in your space? Our online form can help. Tell us about your space and what you want to achieve and we will design a 3D layout and a quote with shipping included.

1) Measure the wall

First, measure the wall space available taking into account any obstruction like light switches or bulkheads and don't forget the baseboards.

2) Fill out our online help form with your measurements

We will design a custom layout recommendation. You will be able to make as many changes as required until it fits your space, budget and need. Once you are satisfied we'll send you a quote with images and price including shipping.

Plan Perfect with Paper & Pencil

We have created a paper planner to help you design your wall system.

Use the Grid Planner as your guide. The dotted lines spaced for our standard widths 24" 30" & 32". Cut out and place the components you want from the scale samples on the Component Page. Print as many copies as you need or draw right on the grid.

Locate your wall studs

Mark both sides of each 1½” stud location within the wall (usually 16” apart, mark each second stud for 32” wide system setup). 2” GRK small head finishing screws are provide for wood studs. Installing support rails over wall studs makes for an easier and stronger installation but it is not essential. Rails can be installed anywhere when using the proper anchors select correct anchors for any holes that don’t hit a stud.

Install the first rail

Choose where you want to place your first rail. Mark your desired height at the top. Pre-drill a hole at the top to ensure you hit a stud. Screw a fastener in the topmost hole first but not entirely so the rail can still move, hold the level along its length to ensure it is vertical and aligns with the stud. Once you are satisfied with the location, height and alignment, use the rail as a drill guide for the remaining holes. After pre-drilling each hole through the rail screw in the remaining mounting screws.

Spacing your rails

Using a shelf as a guide with a level placed on it, mark the position for the second rail in two spots, top and bottom. Check that a shelf fits comfortably between the rails along its full length before mounting more rails. Mark the minimum level gap required for the shelf; there should be a maximum 1/8" gap between shelves when installed.

Aligning your rails

While holding the second rail in position, place a 4' level or another straight edge across the top of both rails to ensure they are at the same hight and all the holes line up. Mark the level height of the second rail. Attach the second rail using the same method as the first.

Insert the shelf supports

Make sure you have a pair of right and left shelf support rods. Start with the shorter part of the arm, Align it parallel to the side of the shelf. Insert the bottom hook from the top, turn it 90° and slide the short part down into the hole. Before you reach the bend, turn the arm back to parallel with the shelf side then lift the support as you rotate to put it in its final position.

Hang your first shelf

Pick up the shelf from the short edges so you can touch the supports underneath. Hold the shelf forty-five degrees down so you can see the bottom hooks at the back. Insert the lower hooks first one at a time then lift the shelf front until it is level. Insert the top hooks one at a time. Use a mallet to lightly tap the bracket hooks in to set them fully if necessary.

Assemble cabinet

Lay the cabinet bottom panel flat on a table. Align a side panel to the base so the connectors mate, there is a small amount of play, so make sure the front edge is flush then using the provided 4mm hex wrench tighten the panel connections. Do the same for the second vertical side, then finally place the top panel on and tighten it down the same way.

Hang cabinet

Using a pair of cabinet supports, insert them in the support rails opposite each other with the long flat side facing up. Slide the cabinet in place, resting on the brackets.

Attach doors

Cabinet door hinges clip/snap-on; once attached, use the adjustment screws on the hinge to centre the doors in their opening.

Attach flop down

Slide the base panel into the bottom of the cabinet then attach the door at the hinges by tightening the screw with a Posidriv screwdriver. Slide the gas stays into the door clips. Then insert the other end into the hardware on the inside of the cabinet. Use the knob to fine-tune the drop until it is level.
