How It Works
Cabinet Door Painting Systems: The How and Why
Ever wondered how you can paint both sides of a cabinet door with minimum marks on the inside edge or damaging the wet paint? Our patented Door Rack Painting System (Patent Number US8066267B2) is the answer. Here's how it works:
Step 1: The Setup
Our system allows you to paint and store both sides of a door horizontally. This means the door is wet with paint on both sides, significantly shortening the job's duration and saving you valuable storage space.
Step 2: Painting the Backside
We always start by painting the backside of the cabinet door first. We recommend applying a thin coat, similar to painting the door vertically, to prevent the paint from running or dripping when you turn it over.
Step 3: Turning the Door Around
When painting the backside, we leave the sides of the door unpainted. This makes it easy to turn the door around by holding the edge with your fingers. The door is then placed back on the bent aluminum rods. The contact with the inside edge of the door is minimal, so it almost hovers in mid-air. Now, you're ready to spray the front and sides of the cabinet door.
Step 4: Drying the Door
Next, take the yellow cabinet door grip holders and hold them at a 45-degree angle on the inside edge of the door. Place them gently onto the dry rack. The entire system is designed for minimal contact, so even if the door is not placed straight or is a little sideways, it doesn't matter.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
After applying primer and two coats of finish paint, there might be tiny marks on the inside edge. Simply take a chip brush with a bit of paint, wiping excess in a piece of cardboard, and tap the marked edge, and they will disappear.
For a glossy sheen finish, paint the final coat only on the backside first and let that dry before loading up the front side. This will eliminate any markings.
Step 6: The Final Coat
Our Wooden Rod add-on dry for all our dry racks comes in handy for painting one side at a time. This works exceptionally well for the final coat. With a satin finish, we paint all the coats on both sides; with a gloss sheen, we prefer the final coat be painted one side at a time.
Why Choose the Door Rack Painter?
Our system makes cabinet painting simple by letting you paint both sides of the door at the same time horizontally without disturbing the paint job. The time and space saved by spraying both sides of the door are priceless.
This simple reason explains why the Door Rack Painter saves so much time. Most paints have to dry overnight before being recoated. Mathematically with three coats of paint and applying each side of the cabinet door separately will take six nights of drying time; if one paints both sides simultaneously, it will take three nights.
Our system replaces at least one employee by speeding up production and making cabinet door painting much easier. The only difference, this system will not ask for wages or workman’s comp and will always show up.
