The VARIO M8 cabinet system is characterized by flat fronts.
Wing doors and drawers are all hinged, which reduces visible joints to a minimum. In addition, the cabinet sides have a continuous, joint-free design.
The top and bottom shelves are structurally sandwiched between the cabinet sides. The grooved 13 mm cabinet back panel recedes 19 mm in the carcase. Additive visible rear panels in many surface finishesc - e.g. also covered with fabric - can be inserted flush with the indented rear panel. Alternate installation is thus possible. Sound-absorbing 19 mm thick exposed rear panels are fitted with a hook-in fitting. The resulting hollow space supports the acoustic efficiency.
The equipment with shelves, differentiated compartment division, wardrobe equipment, hanging pull-outs and drawers with front panels offers all known possibilities. Due to the adapted design, dimensions and materials, M8 can be optimally combined with the M7 cabinet system.
