We are very happy to announce our new partnership with Intelligent Fixings.

We’ve been hearing great things from our software customers about their PEANUT cabinet connectors, so we have added the full range to PolyBoard’s Quick Design libraries.

Some of the benefits of the PEANUT system:

  • Strong
  • Self-clamping
  • Fast and easy cabinet assembly
  • Allows for reassembly
  • Flush and invisible options
  • Works with nesting CNCs, side drilling machines and hand held router/jig
  • Glass fibre reinforced nylon

Hardware for all occasions

peanut 1


Requires only vertical machining so perfect for nesting CNCs, the PEANUT 1 sits flush with the material.


Works with both side drilling machines or a hand held router used in combination with a jig also supplier by Intelligent Fixings. Invisible too!

PEANUT 2 Short

This smaller version is well adapted to mitred joints and end to end connections.


It’s a solid component so unlike the PEANUT 2 it isn’t fixed in place with a screw. Used in conjunction with side drilling machines.

PEANUT set up in PolyBoard

The most efficient way to add hardware to your cabinets in PolyBoard is to use a Manufacturing Method. These are collections of style sheets that define your preferences for materials, drawer and door set up, edging and lots more…plus of course the hardware you like to use.

We’ve already set up these connectors, so just add the PEANUT to your preferred Manufacturing Method and apply with the click of a button to your projects. The machining details will be available automatically for your CNC, and displayed as well in the workshop plans.
