For years, hanging rails have been built into cabinetry to provide a strong
foundation for installation. Many manufacturers have modified this feature for
cost savings, but Wellborn still includes hanging rails with these construction
features in all wall and base frame cabinets.
This captive form of construction has been proven to be the most effective
way to prevent installation problems. Hanging rails prevent the back of the
cabinet from pulling away and causing light cracks after installation. This
superior method of construction is proven to withstand 3 – 4 times the weight
of industry required standards.

WellGrip I-beam braces are made of ½” thick furniture board or optional
plywood. The I-beam is a strong brace running front to back on both sides
of the cabinet. The braces are dadoed and glued into the front, back and
side of the cabinet providing strength, ensuring cabinet squareness and
serving as handles during installation.
Cross-Lock Into End Panels
The back of the face frames are routed with a special step-down groove
to receive the unique step-up edge of the end panel, interlocking the sides
to the front of the cabinet. The junction is glued and cross stapled at an
angle to create a cross lock, a time-tested method of superior woodworking
