What Tools Should I Use to Install Modular Shop Fittings?
Whether you want a modular shelving fit out or brochure holder, knowing what tools to bring when installing shop fittings and furniture will save you a lot of time and hassle.
What’s so great about Apex Display shop fittings is that they are easy to put together yourself. If you can handle IKEA furniture, then you’ll have no trouble with Apex Display. Our spectacular solutions offer you the highest quality shop fittings without the price tag. Flat packed and delivered to your shop door, it’s all about convenience.
Assembling a freestanding modular shop fittings system, such as UniSlot™ Freestand or UniSlot™ Cube, only require the provided Allen key and bolts. Installing a wall fixture modular shopfitting system, on the other hand, need a little bit more tools, such as a drill, a screwdriver, a hammer, and an Allen key.
To get you started, let’s review your tool set.
1. Power Drill
It’s not always necessary, but if you need to drill a hole, then you’re going to want a power drill. You’ll get a lot of use out of a drill over the long term, so it’s a worthy investment for your tool box. Drilling is most commonly required when you need to customise your shop fittings direct.
You should have a couple of different sized screwdrivers handy if you like to do DIY projects. Make sure you get a screwdriver with an indented cross in its head, as well as a flathead screwdriver, and one with an indented line, in a range of standard sizes.
A hammer is a tool box essential. You might not be hammering in nails, but it will come in handy when putting in pegs and fixing different components together tightly. However, since hammers offer a lot of force, it’s important to use them gently at first and build up to the right amount of pressure for the job.
4. Allеn Key
An Allen key, also known as an Allen wrench or hex, is an extremely useful little tool that looks like a piece of bent metal. It may be simple, but you’ll be reaching for it quite a lot when assembling furniture. The lever arch mechanism allows you to apply a tightening torque to your assembly, which means everything will be secure and not prone to falling down flat.
