Integrated Panel Dimensions

Metric measurements rounded and optimized.

INTEGRATED PANEL

NOTICE
Due to differences in surrounding cabinetry the panel may not perfectly align with door. The procedure below is designed to provide a finished integrated panel that seamlessly integrates with surrounding cabinetry.

Panel Preparation 

A full integrated door panel completely covers the door frame and provides a built-in appearance.

NOTICE
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 hardware is installed.

  1. Cut the panels to the dimensions listed in the diagram below.
  2. Optional: Stain or finish panel to desired stain or color. Be sure to closely follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
  3. Optional: Install handles and hardware.

NOTICE
When applying an integrated panel to a unit, ensure that both sides are finished in order to prevent warping. In some panel installations, the panel may be visible through the glass while the door is open.

HANDLELESS INTEGRATED DOOR PANEL 

The following procedure is designed to provide a finished, handleless solid panel for an 18″ (450 mm) door that seamlessly integrates with its surrounding cabinetry.

NOTE: Many cabinet manufacturers provide a ready solution for a handleless, integrated design that can be easily applied to your U-Line 3000 Series model. Consult your cabinet manufacturer for applicable design and installation details. The cabinet manufacturer’s solution to this design and integration detail will often result in an integrated panel solution wherein the size of the panel may result in a height dimension taller than what we specify. This can be achieved provided the additional height is positioned above the appliance door.

NOTICE
The integrated panel aligns with the surrounding cabinetry and, due to differences in cabinetry, may not align perfectly with the door.

The appliance will need up to 34-1/2″ (876 mm) to the underside of the counter to leave room for leveling adjustments.

A single prepared panel with insert must not weigh more than 20 lbs (10 kg).

Integrated Panel Preparation 

  1. Cut the main panel to the dimensions below. For details.
    Main panel width Main panel height
    17-5/8″ (445 mm) 28-13/16″ (732 mm)
  2. Create the top design for the handleless feature and the 1/8″ (3 mm) notch for the insert(s) indicated on the Top Detail drawing, on the next page.
  3. Prepare the insert(s) that will back up the handleless design. Wooden Insert – Cut 1/8″ (3 mm) thick wooden insert(s) to the dimensions below.
    Wooden insert width Wooden insert height
    17-5/8″ (445 mm) 3-1/2″ (89 mm)

    Integrated Panel

  4. Optional: Stain or finish panel and wooden insert to desired stain or color. Be sure to closely follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
    NOTICE
    If finishing panel or wooden insert, all sides must be finished to prevent warping.
  5. Attach the insert to the panel. Wood glue or equivalent adhesive should be used to attach insert to panel.

EXTENDED INTEGRATED PANEL 

NOTICE
Due to differences in surrounding cabinetry the panel may not perfectly align with door. The procedure below is designed to provide a finished panel that seamlessly integrates with surrounding cabinetry.

Panel Preparation 

An extended integrated panel can be used to maintain alignment with an adjacent extended cabinet height or a reduced toe-kick/grille application.

  1. Cut the panels to the dimensions listed in the appropriate diagram on the next page.
  2. Optional: Stain or finish panel to desired stain or color. Be sure to closely follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
  3. Optional: Install handles and hardware.

PREPARE AND INSTALL INTEGRATED GRILLE
(PLINTH STRIP/BASE FASCIA)

  1. Use the dimensions provided in the diagram to cut and shape your integrated grille (plinth strip/base fascia) panel. Recommended panel thickness is between 1/4″ (6 mm) and 3/8″ (9 mm). Height will vary from 3-5/16″ (84 mm) to 4-5/16″ (110 mm) based on your grille (plinth strip/base fascia) height.
  2. Finish or stain your grille (plinth strip/base fascia) panel to match your surrounding furniture. Finish front, back and edges to prevent warping. Carefully follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for finish application and cure times.
  3. Apply double sided tape to the backside of the integrated grill (plinth strip/base fascia). Use the diagram below for reference. U-Line recommends 3M™ VHB™ tape, a high strength bonding tape.

    NOTICE
    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.
  8. Locate 6 of the #6x 1-1/2″ (38 mm) screws provided with your unit.
  9. Using a Phillips screwdriver, place one screw into each of the 6 pilot holes and screw down. Do not overtighten screws.
  10. Ensure the screws sit flush against the bottom of the channel.
