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.

With the aid of the Squirrel® Hinge System, fabricators can easily take a 12mm sheet of solid material and make cabinet doors.
