    Mullions
    In This Topic

    Mullions are the partial divisions that are added as an extra surface to hinge a door from whenever there is not a carcass end or full division to attach the door to.

    Configuring Mullions

    In most cases, mullions are added automatically to the cabinet where applicable.

    The default size and machining options for the mullions can be adjusted from the drawing properties.

    Mullion Size

    Default Width

    The default width of the mullion is set in the Construction Standard > Ends page of the Catalog/Drawing Properties, in the Mullions groupbox.

    Cabinet Override

    Most cabinets also have the ability to override the mullion depth.

    Cabinet Labour & Construction Mullion Width option - Click to Expand

    Cabinet Labour & Construction Mullion Width option - Click to Expand

    On cabinets without a mullion, this option is greyed out (not enabled).

    Mullions are enabled for cabinet with 3 or more doors or if an end has been removed or if both doors have left or right only hinging.

     

     Mullion Machining Options

    The Mach. Shelf/Mullion > Mullions page contains various options for adjusting how the mullions are machined and positioned.

    Enables construction holes for the mullions in the top/bottom of the cabinet.

    Qty

    Sets the number of construction holes used when Add Holes is enabled.

    Dist. from Mullion Ends

    Sets the distance to the construction holes from each end of the mullion when Add Holes is enabled.

     

     Shelf Holes

    Add Adjustable Holes

    Adds adjustable shelf holes to the mullion when it intersects with an adjustable shelf.

    From Back of Mullion

    Sets the distance to the adjustable shelf holes from the back edge of the mullion.

     

     Shelf/Mullion Cutouts

    When Shelves and Mullions Overlap then Cutout

    Sets which part will receive a cutout when a shelf and mullion would otherwise collide.

    Additional Depth of shelf cutouts

    Sets the amount of extra clearance added to the depth of the shelf cutout when a mullion and shelf are overlapping.

    Additional Width of shelf cutouts

    Sets the amount of extra clearance added to the width of the shelf cutout when a mullion and shelf are overlapping.

     

     Shelf/Mullion (or Division) Cutouts

    Notch out rounded corner of Mullion/Division cutout

    Adds a notch to the cutout at the top of the mullion or division when it overlaps with the top rail of a cabinet to accommodate the radius of the tool

     

     Mullion Position

    Single Mullion Position flush with hinged door plus

    Sets the distance between the edge of the mullion and the edge of the door that is hinged from it when using a single mullion.

    Double Mullion Position flush with hinged door plus

    Sets the distance between the edge of the mullion and the edge of the door that is hinged from it when using a double mullion.

     

     

     Double Mullions

    Most cabinets that are able to add mullions also have the option to enable Double Mullions.

    This adds a second mullion next to the original mullion to provide extra stability and prevents the need for shelf or hinge holes to drill all the way through the mullion.

    In most cabinets, this option can be found in Labour & Construction > Construction page, or in certain cabinets that have manual controls over the mullions, the double mullion checkbox will be next to the relevant option for adding the mullions.

     

     Sink Cutouts

    The Vanity Sink and Vanity Standard cabinets have the ability to add sink cutouts to the back of mullions.

    These sink cutouts can be controlled on the Labour & Construction → Mullions page, in the Mullion Sink Cutouts group box:

    Mullion Sink Cutout Controls

    Mullion Sink Cutout Controls

     Cutout Height

    The vertical height of the cutout to be applied to the back of the mullion.

    Cutout Width

    The horizontal width of the cutout to be applied to the back of the mullion.

    Cutout Radius

    The fillet radius to use in the corner of the sink cutout.

    Enable Cutouts

    Enables the sink cutout in the selected mullion. A checkbox will appear for each mullion present in the cabinet.
