UNPACKING To remove the unit from the shipping protection, slice up the back of the cabinet to cut through the shrink wrap. Be careful not to damage the back of the unit. The foam wrapping should be folded and saved to be used for protecting the tops and fronts of cabinets after installation. LAYOUT When the units that form a complete item have been placed in the approximate location where they are to be installed, arrange the units according to the installation drawings. Once this has been done, locate the high point in the floor by leveling across the tops of the units. When the high point has been determined, level to the starting point to determine the height the first unit must be set to maintain the level of the highest unit. WALL MOUNTED STORAGE CABINET INSTALLATION Wall cabinets are hung by first attaching wood cleats to the wall and then securing the cabinets to the cleats with screws. Determine the exact location of the cabinet and mark the desired location of the top left corner on the wall. Locate the cleats as shown in Figure 03. If more than one cabinet is to be installed in a row, make a chalk line on wall to line up the top of cleats. Make sure chalk line is level.
Wood cleats (not supplied) should be 3” to 4” wide and 3/4” thick. Cut them 6” less in length than the length of the cabinet. Mount the cleats as shown with heads of fasteners recessed flush with the face of the fronts of the cleats. Check the face of the cleats for plumb and, if necessary, insert shims between the cleat and the wall to bring to plumb. Wood cleats should be secured to the wall using appropriate fasteners as dictated by wall construction. (Due to varying wall material, fasteners are not furnished with the equipment). • Drill 9/32” hole in the back of the cabinet approximately 4” from each side of the cabinet and on the centerline of each cleat (4 holes). Set the cabinet in place, allowing the top rear rail to rest on the tops of the wood cleats. Fasten it to the wood cleats using #12 x 1-1/4” oval head screws with #12 countersunk washers.
