The 32mm system has been a part of every closet, cabinet and casegood I have designed and built since the early '90s. The 32mm system is a method of designing/building cabinets using 32mm increments to size and index cabinet components. The 32mm system aspect of any cabinetmaking system (framed or frameless) is anything (holes, components, etc.) that is consistently sized and/or located in 32mm increments.
Using 32mm increments is a constraint, the more you incorporate it into your cabinetmaking system, the less flexible (certain aspects) and more efficient your system will be. In a perfect 32mm system all holes can fit on a three dimensional 32mm grid and all components can be sized/located in 32mm increments. While potentially the ultimate in efficiency, the design options are limited.
The goal of this site is to provide options, to present some of the numerous ways that the 32mm system can used to build cabinets. While any use of 32mm increments needs to be consistent to be efficient, using the 32mm system is not an all or nothing proposition.
While there is a lot of information on this site, it is far from comprehensive. Your questions and comments are welcome.
