HOW TO MEASURE


This measuring guide is intended for use with the following types of drawer guides:
KV side mounting soft closing drawer guides

Measuring for new drawer boxes.
Example cabinet opening of: 10" wide, 6" tall, and 24" deep. Using drawer box standards from BARKERdoor.com

 1. WIDTH OF THE DRAWER BOX. The width of the drawer box depends on two different factors. First, is the opening of the cabinet. Second, is the type of drawer guide to be used. For this tutorial we will be assuming that a KV SIDE MOUNTED DRAWER GUIDES drawer slide will be used for the drawer guide. Let's take an opening width of 10" wide. With this opening you will need to subtract a certain amount for the thickness of the drawer guide on the left and right side of the drawer box. Our
KV SIDE MOUNTED DRAWER GUIDES slide is exactly 1/2" thick. Therefore we will take the opening of 10" and subtract 1/2" from the left side and another 1/2" from the right side to get the overall width of the drawer box we need to order. This gets us a width of 9" (calculated by 10" (opening width)- 1/2" (left) - 1/2" (right)= 9)". The overall width of the drawer box needed would be 9" wide.

 2. HEIGHT OF DRAWER BOX. To calculate the height of the drawer box you should take the actual height of the opening and subtract a certain amount to allow for a bit of clearance both above and below the drawer box. I personally like to subtract at least 1" from the opening height to get the drawer box height. For this example let's say that the opening height is exactly 6" tall. We will take this opening height and subtract 1" to get a 5" usable drawer box height. Since Barker Door has set heights of 3", 4", 5" and so on, we will need to select the closest box height. The drawer box height I would use is the 5" tall option.

 3. DEPTH OF DRAWER BOX. The depth of the drawer box is calculated by looking at the depth of the opening. Let's say that the depth of the opening is 24" deep from the front of the face frame to the back of the cabinet. In this example you will need at least 1" of clearance behind the drawer box to allow enough room for adjustment. Take 24" and subtract 1" for extra clearance and we get 23". Now find the deepest drawer guide you can fit into this 23" deep opening. In this example a 22" deep
KV SIDE MOUNTED DRAWER GUIDES slide will work just fine. Due to the fact that you are using a 22" slide in a 23" usable depth opening, you will need to order a 22" deep drawer box. Always be sure to order the drawer box and the drawer guide at the same depth. For example if you order a 16" deep drawer guide, make sure you order a 16" deep drawer box. This will eliminate any confusion and ensure a working drawer box and guide combination. Rear mounting brackets can be used in most applications by attaching the bracket to the inside back of the cabinet.
