You should 100% have a 4x2x2

From what I’ve seen, there’s lots of interest in them if the quality is there

A couple of my enclosures were flatpak. Happy with them coming that way as it allowed me to do fitouts and create cable slots which made it so much easier to do electricals as I could leave cables intact. Just used silicone to seal joints.

Ok cool

Yeah I used black silicone to seal the joints on mine made for a clean look. Whilst keeping each level seperate.

Would u mind if I asked what you payed for
Them roughly ?

Are you in australia ? I havnt been able to find any hence my post and looking at the prospect of possibly supplying them if there is enough intrest.


Cheers mate

If it's melamine, I'd give it wide berth , especially if there is likely to be a humid microclimate inside or moist substrate, or there are risks of water being spilt or splashed .

If they made them with plywood that's been pre-exterior grade sealed/vanished on the pieces , then that's going be much more attractive and stronger and durable.

I've seen adverts for Zen Habitats , these are flat packs and look like a great product .

I am in Australia, can't remember what I paid for them. If I find any information I will send through. I remember that 1-2 were purchased via ebay.

Melamine makes for great enclosures . Completely fine with moisture and splashes of water if all joints are sealed with silicon . Tried and tested . 1000s of people will tell you that .
