Maximum and Minimum Door Sizes:
The 3 basic rules to follow have to do with the sizing of the bi-fold doors.
Rule 1: The minimum size of either individual door (single door) is 220mm.
Rule 2: The maximum size of either individual door (single door) is 430mm.
Rule 3: The maximum combined door size (Left door + Right door) is 650mm.
Tip: The ideal combined door size (Left door + Right door) is between 550mm and 600mm
Here is a quick 'How to' working example of finding out wether the Door sizes are no problems on a custom sized cabinet:
Assume from your design, you have worked out that you need the following custom corner cabinet size:
Left Width = 852mm
Right Width = 875mm
Left Depth = 480mm
Right Depth = 580mm
Now you need to test it to see if it's O.K:
Test 1: Left Width 852mm minus Right Depth 580mm = Left Door Size of 270mm.
272mm is greater than the Min. size of 220 and less than the max. size of 430mm, so this is O.K.
Test 2: Right Width 875mm minus Left Depth 480mm = Right Door Size of 295mm.
295mm is greater than the Min. size of 220 and less than the max. size of 430mm, so this is O.K.
Test 3: The combined bi-fold door size is Left Door 272mm plus Right Door 295mm = 567mm
567mm is less than the Max. combined door size of 650mm.
Also, 567mm is greater than the ideal Min. size of 550 and less than the ideal max. size of 600mm, so this is perfect.
Note: Altering any one of the 4 sizes above alters the outcome of the door sizes, so if you change the size at any stage remember to do the simple 3 test rule above.
Our system also has a built-in checker to test the Corner cabinet using these simple rules but it just returns a message and not a 'how to'. If you really must have a size and it fails the 3 test rule above, then put in the size that the computer accepts for the product and use the 'Special requests' box to over-ride the size to a size that you must have, i.e.: "Over-ride Left Depth to 672mm -I must have this".
Please overwrite the default values shown in the Prompt Boxes with your specific values and a calculated price will be shown on the Shopping Cart (see label "ViewCart" above.
Height = Box Height Only (this does not include height of the Kickboard or the thickness of the bench top).
Example: If a 900mm High Over-all Bench height is desired:
900mm – Bench Top thickness (E.G.: 34mm) – Kickboard Height (E.G.: 146mm) = Cabinet Height 720mm.
LH Width & RH Width= the external width along the back-wall, each of which to fit in the price range.
LH Depth & = External Depth of Cabinets including Door
Number of shelves required= Specify the number needed from 0-7 - the standard (in this case 1x Shelf).
Shelves = is to indicate Fixed or Adjustable shelving.
Shelf Depth = Offset (Set in) of Shelf from the Door. Select either the suggested value as a default, Full depth of the cabinet, or one of the other options.
Bifold door hang=" Select Right, Left or None as required.
"Special Requests" can be used to: (for example) state you preferred Door Gap measure e.g. 1mm (in place of our standard 1.5mm); or any other need e.g. 'No shelf holes to be drilled'.
