What is a Le Mans corner unit?


A Le Mans corner base unit provides a very convenient way of accessing items in hard to reach places in the unit. This is achieved by the 2 or 4 large trays that extend out of the unit that bring items to you.

One thing to remember with the Le Mans corner base units is that when the door is fully open, the 2 or 4 Le Mans trays do come past the width of the door. Also, when the door is open, the 2 trays come out and need an additional 30cms of space at the side, so that the trays can be pulled out fully.

The picture below shows how it looks fully open.

The trays also protrude past the front of the door, when the tray is pulled out by about 13cms. See the image below.
