Integrated Panel Dimensions
Due to differences in surrounding cabinetry the panel may not perfectly align with the door. The procedure below is designed to provide a finished integrated panel that seamlessly integrates with surrounding cabinetry.
The door panel must not weigh more than 20 lbs (10 kg).
It is important to ensure that all drilled holes are drilled to the correct depth in order to avoid splits in the wood when the hardware is installed. When applying an integrated panel to a unit, ensure that both sides are finished in order to prevent warping. In some overlay panel/frame installations, the panel may be visible through the glass while the door is open.
A fully integrated door panel completely covers the door frame and provides a built-in appearance.
Integrated Panel Preparation
- Cut the panels to the dimensions listed in the diagram below.
- Optional: Stain or Finish panel to desired stain or color.
Be sure to closely follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
- Optional: Install handles and hardware.
Integrated Panel Installation
- Fully open door/drawer.
- Starting at a corner, pull gasket away from door/ drawer.
- Continue to pull gasket free from gasket channel.
- Upon removal, lay the gasket down on a flat surface.
- Partially loosen the 3 screws, securing the top hinge to the cabinet.
- Align the panel with the outside edge (opposite the hinge) and high enough to align with the highest point in the door/drawer.
- Insert panel underneath top hinge and apply upward pressure while bringing the lower portion of the panel flush to the door inside the lower hinge. The panel will fit snuggly
- Align door with cabinet. Tighten the top 3 screws, securing the top hinge to the cabinet. NOTICE
Due to differences in floor construction or surrounding cabinetry, the panel may not sit flush with the top of the door/drawer.
- Secure integrated panel to door/drawer using clamps. A robust tape may also be used. U-Line recommends the use of bar clamps to secure the panel to the door/drawer. If using tape, be certain the tape will not damage the panel finish upon removal.
- Using a 7/64″ (3 mm) drill bit, drill 6 pilot holes into the wood panel 1/2″ (12 mm) deep using the holes in the door/drawer frame as a guide.
It is important to ensure that all drilled holes are drilled to the correct depth in order to avoid splits in the wood when hardwood is installed.
- Locate 6 of the #6x 1-1/4″ (32 mm) screws provided with your unit.
- Using a Phillips screwdriver, place one screw into each of the 6 pilot holes and screw down. Do not overtighten screws.
- Be sure the screws force their way past the opening on the gasket channel and sit flush against the bottom of the channel.
- Remove clamps from door/drawer.
If the panel requires additional adjustment after removing clamps, slightly loosen each screw and adjust the panel as necessary. Tighten screws upon completion.
- Starting at the corners, re-install the gasket into the gasket channel in the frame. Make sure the gasket is fully seated. This may take some force.
