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
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.
