Field Installation and Service Manual SECTION 1 - INSTALLATION Installing Toekick Skin Illustrated Method Sheet 111 Step 1 Calculate and Cut Toekick to Length 1.1 Toekick Skin should be measured and cut to the exact outside cabinet dimensions. Laying Out Toekick Skin Splices Toekick Skin is a decora- tive panel that is either 1/4” or 5/8” thick, used to cover the face of the unfi nished toe recesses on Tall, Base, Vanity and Desk Cabinets. The material is available in 4-1/4” x 96” individual pieces and is installed after cabinets are se- cured so a single piece can span the toe area of several individual cabi- nets without a splice. Preferred Areas for Placing Splices Butt Joint Splice in Toekick Skin 1.2 Measure what is needed for the entire area and cut the longest pieces fi rst to ensure the best yield from the material available. If the total span needed is longer than 96”, plan the splice so it can be assembled over a smooth area of the cabinet Toekick recess. The best areas for this are centered on narrow cabinets or within a few inches of the end of wider cabinets. ©2017 PCS Professional Cabinet Solutions. All Rights Reserved. Section 1: IMS 111 2
