Custom Drawer Panel Specifications

 

 

Front Panel Material Specifications

  • 5/8 - 13/16” (16 - 20mm) panel thickness.
  • Adequately sealed to withstand moisture (122OF/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 vapor 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: 20lb (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.

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. 1/16” (2mm) gap to the countertop must be maintained.

Height of Lower Panel

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