Outdoor Cabinet Fillers
For base cabinets, wall cabinets, and corners, filler pieces give your outdoor kitchen the perfect fit. The use of fillers addresses several issues in kitchen installation.
Fillers let you stay with standard outdoor cabinet sizes. This is an obvious budget saver. Spending money on a filler that is intended to be trimmed will always cost less than ordering a custom-sized outdoor cabinet.
Fillers are necessary to keep doors from hitting walls. For any cabinet with a door that opens, including a WerEver outdoor cabinet, the door with a door pull installed will always swing wider than the width of the cabinet. Our doors open 100 degrees via a stainless steel self-closing hinge. If you add a door pull to the door, the door will open an inch or two beyond the width of the cabinet. Without a filler, the door would bang into the wall every time it is opened.
Fillers compensate for bowed or warped walls. If you inspected every wall in your house with a straight edge, a carpenter’s square, and a level, you would discover that almost none of your walls are perfectly straight and level. Unlike a wall, our cabinetry is cut with a computer controlled CNC machine. Everything that should be straight is perfectly straight and level. For a proper fit with good door alignment, each cabinet needs to be leveled using the adjustable leveling legs. When the cabinet is installed next to a wall, a filler piece is needed to fill the gap, especially when the wall isn’t perfectly level. This rule is not unique to outdoor kitchens. It applies to any cabinetry installed in your house.
