Counter Spacing: the minimum space required for each Suspend-It Seating bar stool. Proper spacing will allow all of the occupants sitting on your Suspend-It Seating bar stools to sit comfortably.
- Minimum 24" counter space per chair for standard size chairs
- Chairs by a wall add 4" to 6"
- Chairs on 45 degree corners add 2" to 4"
- Smaller chairs (stool tops) require 2" less space per chair
- Subtract 2" to 4" for a chair positioned at the open end of a counter
Counter Overhang: the distance measured from the finish panel of the cabinetry to the edge of the counter top.
- 15-16" counter overhang recommended
- 9" is the minimum overhang that may be accommodated
Vertical Measurement: the vertical distance measured from the floor to the underside of the counter top.
- Critical for the proper fit of the bar frame under your counter top
- Any counter height can be accommodated
Dead Space: new cabinetry only. The dead space is built into your cabinetry by your cabinet maker. This space is used to conceal the vertical post of the bar frame behind the finish panel.
- 3 1/2" space between base cabinet and the back panel is required for concealed bar frames.
- In some cases, covered frames may be installed inside the natural dead spaces of the base cabinet
- No dead space is required for exposed frames. Exposed frames are normally used when adding Suspend-It Seating bar stools to your existing kitchen snack bar/breakfast bar or wet bar.
Foot Box: used to conceal the frame work of the standard foot bar frame where it attaches to the floor. The foot box also adds a comfortable place for the occupant of the bar stool to rest their feet.
- Height 6 ½" (other heights may be used with raised counters)
- Depth 15" (covered post frames)
- Depth 18" (exposed post frames)
- Raised panels and access doors under the snack bar or wet bar must be above the finished foot box
- Have your foot box covered to match kitchen flooring
- Foot boxes are not required for inverted foot bar frame installations. A foot rail attached to the cabinetry is generally necessary for most chair occupants to rest their feet and sit comfortably. However; when using the inverted foot bar frame design at a dropped counter, the foot rail may not be necessary
