Frequently Asked Questions



How much space should I leave around my panel?


Answer: For the 1/4" ( 260p), a minimum 5/32 of a inch is suggested per side and top and bottom. During the drier time periods you could allow for an additional 1/16.  This would allow even more expansion space if the panel is exposed to excessive or extreme humidity changes.

How many space balls per door?


Answer: We suggest two balls per side, and top and bottom.  If the door is extra wide we suggest putting 3 space balls in the top and bottom rails.  This would allow for the additional weight of the panel.



How should the space balls be spaced ?



We suggest that they are equally spaced across the stile and rail.  Some designer/builders have also placed the space balls closer to the corners.  Either placement works well.
