Built-in furniture with buffer

In the calculation model for built-in furniture, a furniture placement of 3 cm above floor height is assumed. If you want a different plinth height due to a foot panel, for example, please observe:

  • A lower plinth height is always possible for ATTICCO as shelving unit. As a dresser and cabinet furniture, a minimum of 2 cm shelf is recommended as margin between opening drawer and cabinet door and floor.
  • If you want a plinth height, higher than 3 cm, you must make an extra check via the calculator. Enter in the calculation model a new knee wall height, where you have subtracted the number of cm you want to increase the base (over the base of 3 cm).

Example: If the actual knee wall height is 120 cm and you want a plinth height of 18 cm, a new “theoretical” knee wall height of 105 cm is obtained in the calculation model, which is obtained by subtracting 15 cm (18 – 3) from the 120 cm which is the real knee wall height. Enter new knee wall height and sloping angle. The model then calculates whether there is room for this plinth height. If not try with a lower base.

ATTICCO built-in furniture is supplied without furniture legs. But it is possible to order furniture legs as add-on to your furniture order.

We have some installation hints for you. However, as no two attic rooms are the same, it is not possible to give exact instructions A to Z on how to built-in ATTICCO. Also, the wanted furniture expression in the room may vary. So, instead we give you some general advices about location and anchoring of the built-in ATTICCO furniture.

Guidelines regarding. protection against fire during installation

The requirements of the fire authorities differ from country to country. Therefore, please refer to the national building regulations.

In general, the requirements for installation are tightened in height and for installation in residential apartments.

FOR DENMARK APPLIES:
For 2-storey homes, there are requirements for class 2 cladding – for homes where the floor does not exceed 5 m above ground – which applies to the vast majority of private family homes.
Class 2 cladding must, for a certain period of time, set at 10 minutes, be able to protect combustible material behind the cladding and prevent the occurrence of fire in the cavities that may also occur behind it.
MDF in 12 mm meets the requirements for Class 2 cladding. At ATTICCO, we use 15 mm MDF, which is why the requirement is also met. But ATTICCO also has a 3 mm HDF plate (masonite) that finishes the sloping surface of the furniture. This plate does not meet the Class 2 requirement.
If the furniture is a cupboard or drawer unit, it has a 15 mm MDF surface in the front as a door or drawer front – but it is uncertain whether the fire authorities will think it is satisfactory in terms of fire safety.

You can therefore choose to mount an mdf board at least 12 mm or a 10 mm gypsum board over the hdf board and thereby ensure a full fulfillment of the class 2 requirement.
Another option is to maintain the existing “fire wall” of the home by moving it backwards in the room where the furniture is built in. Hereby the furniture will function as a free-standing piece of furniture.

In conclusion, it must be repeated that ATTICCO, as a built-in piece of furniture, presupposes that there is a warm, insulated rear wall behind the piece of furniture. This back wall will typically live up to the fire requirements.
