The manufacturer of Soleic cabinets, Werever Products, Inc., was the first company to begin making outdoor cabinets from polymer. They have been making polymer outdoor cabinets since 2001 and have tested a wide variety of construction methods. The only one that has been found to tolerate all weather conditions is the only one they use.
Werever uses an interlocking joint that has been thoroughly tested and that has stood the test of time. They have cabinets installed in all 50 states, and have handled everything that Mother Nature has been able to throw at them … including hurricanes! Our construction method requires extreme precision, so there is no room for errors.
Other polymer cabinet manufacturers will use much thinner sheets of polymer to cut costs, or will use inferior methods of construction that are quicker and require much less precision, such as Cam bolts or welding. These methods are easier and lower the cost of manufacturing the cabinets, but are also known not to last outside. They also result in a cabinet with a poorer quality.
