All our range hoods are manufactured from quality stainless steel in our factory at Mile End, South Australia. Starting with premium grade stainless steel, the components are precision laser cut. We then fold, weld, polish and assemble each cabinet to our exacting standards. Every unit is made from a combination of welded and bolted construction and has a hand polished finish, completed by one of our qualified tradespeople.
We only select premium grade stainless steel sheet metal for our cabinets. Stainless steel has excellent corrosion resistance, and the Type 304 grade we use as standard also has excellent cleanability and hygienic characteristics. If you require greater corrosion resistance, such as if your cabinets are close to the beach, then we can do a special order for you and manufacture from Marine Grade stainless steel.
The main components of Cronin Alfresco cabinets have a special surface finish know as a #4 grain.
Material thickness is also an important consideration when manufacturing Alfresco Cabinets. We select solid 1.6mm thick sheet metal for the base. This ensures the foundation of your cabinet is solid and supports the rest of the assembly. Our side panels are made 1.2mm thick and this adds to the overall strength of the cabinet. Likewise, door panels are a solid 1.2mm construction. You can see and feel the difference of a Cronin Alfresco Cabinet.
All our cabinets are 700mm deep. This gives you plenty of bench space to prepare your cooking and also means there is plenty of storage space below. The single width units are 606mm wide and the BBQ unit is 986mm wide. All our units are 900mm high and have some flexibility with the adjustable feet that come as standard. For precise details please see the specification of each unit.
