Inframe appliance door (one piece)


A question that we were recently asked was “How does an inframe appliance door work? Is the frame bit of the unit attached to the appliance afterwards, so that it blends in with the rest of the inframe kitchen units?”

Well, when you buy an inframe kitchen, the frame part that the door sits in, is attached to the unit and the door is then centred into that frame and hinged to the unit.

When the in-frame door is opened, only the door part comes out towards you and the frame stays put, but with an appliance door, let’s say for an integrated dishwasher (below) that does not require a unit, just space in between 2 units, the door has to be made in a slightly different way.

As you can see from the image below, the frame part of the door and the door itself are made as a 1 piece door. This allows the appliance to open properly, without the frame getting in the way and allows the appliance to blend in with the inflame look of the rest of the kitchen.
