Solid back panels 8mm thick
keyboard_arrow_down
Back panel thickness is important as it adds rigidity to the construction of a cabinet. Back panels that are 8mm or thicker are easy to cut or drill if required.

Thinner back panels do not aid the rigidity of cabinets and can be flimsy and awkward to drill/saw. Very thick back panels can add unnecessary weight to cabinets, infringe on service void space and also be difficult to cut/drill.
