5.3 Surface Categories

5.3.1 Exposed Exterior

a) Defined as all exterior surfaces exposed to view, including:

  • All surfaces visible when doors and drawers are closed, including knee spaces.
  • Underside of cabinet bottoms over 1067 mm [42”] above the finished floor, including cabinet bottoms behind light valances and the bottom edge of light valances.
  • Cabinet tops under 2032 mm [80”] above the finished floor, or if 2032 mm [80”] and over and visible from an upper building level or floor.
  • Front edges of stretchers, ends, s, tops, and bottoms.
  • Sloping tops of cabinets that are visible.
5.3.2 Exposed Interior

a) Defined as all surfaces exposed to view in open casework or behind transparent doors, including:

  • Shelves, including edgebanding.
  • Divisions (front edge is an exposed surface).
  • Interior face of ends (sides), backs, and bottoms (including pull outs). Also included are the interior surfaces of cabinet top members 914 mm [36”] or more above the finished floor.
  • Interior face of door and applied drawer fronts.
5.3.3 Semi-Exposed

a) Defined as those interior surfaces only exposed to view when doors or drawers are opened, including:

  • Tops and bottoms of shelves, including front edgebanding.
  • Divisions (front edge is an exposed surface).
  • Interior face of ends (sides), backs, and bottoms (including a bank of drawers). Also included are the interior surfaces of cabinet top members 914 mm [36”] or more above the finished floor.
  • Drawer sides, sub fronts, backs, and bottoms.
  • The underside of cabinet bottoms between 610 mm [24”] and 1067 mm [42”] above the finished floor.
  • Security panels or drawer stretchers.
5.3.4 Concealed

a) Defined as those exterior or interior surfaces that are covered or not normally exposed to view, including:

  • Toe spaces.
  • Sleepers, stretchers, and solid sub tops.
  • The underside of cabinet bottoms less than 610 mm [24”] above the finished floor.
  • The flat tops of cabinets 2032 mm [80”] or more above the finished floor, except if visible from an upper floor or building level.
  • The three non-visible edges of .
  • The underside of knee spaces, s and drawer boxes that are less than 914 mm [36”] above the finished floor.
  • The faces of cabinet ends of adjoining units that butt together.
