waste pipe in a Blum tandembox

Where can I get some sort of bendy insert to fit into a drawer base which needs cutting away for a u bend. Blum don't seem to do them, only do the drawers with extra sides which I don't want.

A hepvo trap might help - they enable much more flexible and slimline waste pipe layouts.

Jake's suggestion is a good one. We've used this range extensively. The one thing that 'caught' us out was when we had one arranged vertically beneath a washbasin. Because there is no u-bend or trap to slow the water down, the sound of the water hitting the bend at floor level sounded as if it was running out onto the floor tiles. Very disconcerting.
