Custom Drawer Panel Calculations



Front Panel Material Specifications

  • 16 - 20mm panel thickness
  • Adequately sealed to withstand moisture (50OC @ 80% RH).  Because of it being a hot and wet environment generally, the back and sides of the panel should be completely sealed with a waterproof vapour barrier (ie polyurethane) to prevent damage to the panel.
  • The back of the panel (including any integrated handle) should be completely flush so that the seal between the panel and the rubber trim is maintained.
  • Installation outside these specs may result in condensation on cabinetry surfaces.
  • Maximum weight of each panel: 9kg

The following calculations assume the top of the upper panel is aligned with the top of the adjacent cabinetry.  The final panel/cabinetry alignment is achieved by adjusting the feet:

Width of all Panels

Measure A (the width between adjacent door/drawer fronts) and write it in the first box below, then complete the equation.

The ‘upper panel extension’ allows for the top of the upper panel to extend above the chassis where required, however a min. 2mm gap to the benchtop must be maintained.

Height of the Upper Panel

The ‘upper panel extension’ B allows for the top of the upper panel to extend above the chassis where required, however a min. 2mm gap to the benchtop must be maintained.

Height of the Lower Panel

Measure C (door/drawer height (or equivalent)) and write it in the first box below, then complete the equation.
