WHAT IS AN END PANEL?

An end panel acts as an MFC (melamine-faced chipboard) side of the wardrobe. For example you may wish to have one side as an existing wall in your bedroom. You can then use an end panel on the other side to determine the width of your wardrobe. Our end panels will match your frame and are 600mm deep 18mm thick and approx 2500mm high. (You can cut this down to suit your bedroom ceiling height.)

They are not compulsory, and you can delete them from our order sequence if they are not required.
