Panel Weight Calculator


It’s important when selecting complementary fittings for panels such as sliding door gear to know the weight of your doors. It’s a common misconception that selecting sliding door gear with the largest weight bearing capacity leads to a higher quality output when in fact, this could lead to poorer functionality.

The first step to approaching a project such as sliding doors, is to calculate the perfect system for the individual door weight. Our panel weight calculator will tell you the maximum panel weight required for perfect functionality and smooth movement.

Another great example for using this tool would be specifying the correct model of a cabinet flap system based on the parameters of your door weight and size. Again it’s important for the smooth functionality of your product to have the correct weight bearing capacity of your flap fitting for the cabinet door you are fitting.
