CHUBBSAFES | EverydaySafe

The EverydaySafe from Chubbsafes has specifi cally been designed to be integrated into kitchen, wardrobe and bedroom cabinets. As it is integrated into the furniture, Chubbsafes says it is a more secure option for homeowners as it is not recognised as a safe. The safe can be opened by either a fi ngerprint scanner or an app. It is also said to take only 30 minutes to install. Tel: 01902 904030

ABODE | Atlas Quad and Pico Quad

Abode has extended several of its most popular tap ranges to include a quad spout version. The Atlas Quad, which is pictured, and the Pico Quad are now available in this new confi guration. Both taps are available in four fi nishes – chrome, brushed nickel, matt black and brushed brass. The models are also available with a swan-style spout. Both are said to suit contemporary or classical designs. Tel: 01226 283434


How to automate wall mouldings in your Virtual Worlds design

Daniel Kirkbright, training manager at Virtual Worlds, explains how to make architectural changes in your design, without having to change wall mouldings


t Virtual Worlds, we think the details matter and we do this, so you don’t have to. Our design

software has a system in place for architectural features, which allows you to automatically apply wall mouldings to your entire design dynamically. This system updates itself if you make architectural changes, which saves you so much time when compared with other CAD software. Furthermore, the system is smart, in that it will mitre the corners of wall mouldings automatically, keeping the design looking professional without you constantly having to make these changes manually.

Using the ‘Architectural Elements’ feature You might not always include features such as coving, plinth blocks, dado rails, and skirting

boards in your product range.

Perhaps this comes from your installer, meaning there’s no profi t to be made by adding them into your designs – it’s purely for the benefi t of your customer. So why waste time correcting these features? The Virtual Worlds automated system will take care of this for you. It couldn’t be simpler. You can select the

‘Architectural Elements’ catalogue found in the ‘Generic’ section of Virtual Worlds catalogues to apply and use these features.

You can also view a video that explains this Design Hack at www.kbbreview/virtualworlds.
