Transcript PEERLESS BUILT-IN FIXTURES WELL BUILT IN EVERY DETAIL Lip Front Doors Peerless fixtures are especially marked for quality by their lip front doors. These doors close tightly but do not stick. They keep out dust and insects and always look neat. Solid Brass Nickeled Hardware All Peerless hinges and door fasteners are now beautifully nickeled brass. Many are of special design. They look better and last longer and are a big item in Peerless quality. Flush, Supporting Hinge Our own design self-sup porting flush hinges are used in our ironing board tables and under-window tables. Metal Cooler Trays Shelves used in Peerless coolers are smooth metal trays easy to clean—lift right out. Flanged to prevent contents leaking on to shelves below. Glued and Doweled Joints Hardwood dowels and waterproof glue bind Peerless joints together and keep frames tight and strong as long as the wood lasts. All Peerless fixture frames are glued and doweled in this manner. Such details as these are not visible in a Peerless fixture when it is completed, but the results of this careful, thorough construction are apparent in the perma- nent appearance of the kitchen after years of use. In comparing the cost of Peerless units with the ordinary nailed-together cupboard the details shown here should be considered. These detai's add greatly to the life and value of all Peerless fixtures. BUILT-IN FIXTURE COMPANY • BERKELEY * CALIFORNIA [ ^ge 34 1 PEERLESS BUILT-IN FIXTURES PEERLESS DETAILS Dovetailed Drawer Corners Drawers that are tight, dust-proof and vermin-proof are insured by dovetailed joints, glued up tight and strong. Sleeve Board Lock The sleeve board on Peerless ironing boards locks the main board in position and makes it doubly rigid. Easy Slide Drawers Peerless drawers fit closely and are suspended by slots in the sides, so that they run easily and do not wobble. Peerless Door Support Using the lower door as the support in ironing boards and folding tables is a Peerless feature. It is simple, strong, convenient, good appearing. Veneer Panels About 90 per cent of the sides, backs, tops and bottoms of Peerless cases are made of non-warping veneer panels. Waterproof Glue Glue used in Peerless veneers is waterproof—made according to our own formula specifications. [ Page 35 J BUILT-IN FIXTURE COMPANY • BERKELEY * CALIFORNIA
