Front Panel Specifications
- 5⁄8 - 13⁄16” (16-20 mm) panel thickness.
- Maximum weight of panel: 20 lb (9 kg).
- 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.
The following calculations assume the top of the panel is aligned with the top of the adjacent cabinetry:
Width of the Panel
Measure A (the width between adjacent door/drawer fronts) and write it in the first box below, then complete the equation.
Height of the Panel
Measure B and write it in the rst box below, then complete the equation.
When the top of the dishwasher has to be lower than the adjacent cabinetry, the panel can be increased in height.
