Door Edges

Edge Profiles: Huntwood offers a variety of Edge Profiles. These details effect the functionality requirements of doors and drawers, as well as the overall aesthetic appearance of the cabinetry. To help you understand the Edge Profile options 6available, we have broken them into two distinct categories;

  • Back Bevel Design: As the bottom face of the detail is beveled back away from the edge, these designs do not require knobs, pulls, or finger routes to operate effectively. However, you may choose to add knobs or pulls to enhance the appearance of your cabinetry. Edge Profile numbers 11, 22, 55, and 80 fall into this category.
  • Zero Bevel Design: Unlike the designs that have a back beveled detail, these Edge Profiles return straight to the back of the door or drawer front. Doors and drawer fronts with this type of edge detail require knobs or pulls or finger routes in order to operate effectively (as they have no readily available surface to grasp). Edge Profile numbers 10, 78, 81, 82, 83 and 98 fall into this category.

Related Profiles: In order to offer our customers the ultimate in selection continuity, Huntwood has certain profiles available in both a Back Bevel Design and a Zero Bevel Design. From the face (front) of the respective doors or drawer fronts, related profiles have the same appearance. It is when they are viewed from an edge that you can see how they are different. Profiles that have related alternates are listed below:

  • #10 (Zero Bevel) and #11 (has a Back Bevel)
  • #80 (has a Back Bevel) and #81 (Zero Bevel)

Knobs, Pulls and Finger Routes: As mentioned above, knobs or pulls can be applied to any door style, regardless of whether or not the Edge Profile that you’ve selected has a Back Bevel design. Some kitchens look their best with a mix of both knobs and pulls. Some people prefer the sleek appearance exhibited by cabinetry that does not have knobs or pulls. For those people seeking that kind of solution, it is best to go with either a Back Bevel Edge Profile design or to add Finger Routes. Finger Routes are grooves machined on a small portion of the back edge of a door (or drawer front). From the face of the door (or drawer front), Finger Routes are not visible. Finger Routes are available on designs utilizing I or II Overlays . They do not work on III overlays (full) or Inset designs. On III overlay or Inset, knobs or pulls are required in order to open the doors and drawers of the cabinetry.
