Built-In Series Flush Inset Stainless Steel Panels

Core Issue:

  • Dimensions of the Built-In (BI) flush inset stainless steel panels
  • Size of dual flush inset stainless steel panels for BI models
  • Stainless flush inset grille panel sizes for BI product
  • Thickness, gauge, type, finish of the flush inset stainless steel panels
  • Backer and spacer panel requirements for flush inset stainless steel panels
  • Handles on stainless panels do not align when installed in a dual installation application

Answer:

The flush inset and dual flush inset stainless steel panels for Built-In models are the same size as suggested for custom flush inset panels for both single and dual flush inset applications.

  • An overlay unit with flush inset panels, purchased separately, will be needed to achieve this look.
    • Panels are designed for flush inset installations only.
    • Look and finish is designed for flush inset.
    • The panels will not work with a standard installation. The sides of the panels would show a seam and protrude forward, making for an undesirable appearance.
  • Flush inset stainless steel panel information:
    • The panel thickness of the flush inset stainless steel panels is 3/4".
    • The 3/4" "thickness" is achieved by two 90 degree bends.
    • Due to the weight of stainless steel, it is not a solid 3/4" thick panel.
    • The panels are made of 18 gauge, 304 type stainless steel with a #4 brushed finish.
    • Spacer and backer panels are not required.
    • The handles are not replaceable or removable. Replace entire panel assembly if there is an issue with the handle.
    • Panels are hinge specific to ensure offsets are correct when the panel is applied.
  • Dual installation considerations:
    • When installing two different style units (side-by-side, over/under, wine storage) using a dual installation kit, the handles may not align.
    • Pro style handles do not align.
    • Tubular style handles align at the top.
    • A dual wide flush inset grille must be used.
    • It is not possible to use single flush inset grilles if units are installed in a dual appliaciton.
  • See also, Built-In Series Metal Front Panel for installation instructions.
