Diamond Vibe Cabinet Specifications

Diamond, a division of Masterbrand, has a new line coming out in March 2011.  I've got a spec book and have posted the construction specifications for the new Diamond Vibe line of cabinets.

This Diamond Vibe line should come in, price wise,  quite a bit lower than Diamond's Distinctions and Reflections lines.  I think it's comparable to the Diamond Core (found for the most part at smaller dealers) and Prelude (found at Lowes)  lines that are also available in the Diamond family.

Warranty Lifetime limited warranty. Please see written warranty for detailed information.
All Plywood Construction All plywood construction refers to the cabinet, cabinet box, and shelving. The materials we use are solid wood, 3-ply, 5-ply, and 7-ply plywood. 3-ply plywood is composed of hardwood veneer laminated to a veneer or furniture board core. 5-ply and 7-ply plywood are composed of layers of wood veneer. A few interior components use laminated furniture board because they provide for the most durable, aesthetic application (see product specifications for exceptions).
*Cherry laminate components are intentionally slightly darker than face frame and doors at the time of manufacturing to compensate for the expected darkening of face frames, door, etc., as they are exposed to natural sunlight.
**3/4" prior to final processing. Actual final dimensions will vary.

 

While I won't bother posting all of the door styles found in the Diamond Vibe line, I'll say there aren't as many as what's in the Diamond Core line.  One thing I noticed right off the bat are the lack of hickory door styles, something Diamond has in their other lines.  I have yet to quote this line, though I'm up against a Lowes Prelude quote right now, so I may be getting on one pretty soon.
