Stock Ready-to-Assembly (RTA) Cabinets

Our Stock RTA cabinets are imported and flat packed ready to ship from our California warehouses. More than three quarter of our stock product lines are framed cabinets, and the rest are frameless, including our best seller stock bamboo cabinets. Specification, available sizes and accessory of stock lines are slightly different from each other.

CONSTRUCTION

Construction for framed cabinet


Framed Cabinets:

  • The majority of our stock cabinets are built using a framed construction
  • A 'face frame' is in between the cabinet box and door and drawer fronts
  • The cabinet hardware (hinges and drawer glides) are mounted on the face frame. When the cabinet doors and drawers are closed, the face frame is visible
  • The size of the reveal determines whether it is half or semi-full overlay

Construction of stock frameless cabinet


Frameless Cabinets:

  • Cabinet doors and drawers are attached directly to the cabinet box
  • Frameless cabinets are always considered full overlay
  • More interior storage space than framed cabinets. Some have detachable adjustable legs with toe kick cover
  • Some have integrated toe kick, where the box side panels are recessed at the bottom to form the toe kick portion.

CABINET BOX

  • The majority of our stock cabinets have matching interior finish
  • Almost all of our stock cabinets have full depth, adjustable shelves
  • Some use stainless steel shelf pins and some use plastic shelf inserts.
  • Some stock cabinets require finished end panels to cover exposed sides
  • 1/4" thick finished end panels require scribe molding to cover the raw panel edge
  • 3/4" thick finished panels have finished edges

Packing

All-in-one packing for RTA cabinet

Doors and fronts are packing separately

  • The majority of our stock RTA cabinets are flat packed in a single corrugated cardboard box for each unit. For example, if you order one B18 (one door one drawer 18” wide base unit), the following component will be all packed inside:
    • Cabinet box & drawer box components
    • Doors & drawer fronts (including face frame if any)
    • Hardware (hinges and drawer glides)
  • It is not possible to order component or cabinet doors only for each cabinet unit.

  • For stock frameless EcoSphere Bamboo cabinets, the cabinet doors are packed separately from the rest: cabinet box, drawer box and hardware.
  • Doors and drawer fronts set can be ordered separately.
  • Doors are ordered in sets. For example, 1 order of B24 doors/drawer fronts includes 1 drawer front and 2 doors for the cabinet.
