Hi Robert,

Here’s the total panel surface area

As your project doesn’t contain any hardware, you can also get the total weight by putting the weight per m² in the price of each panel and then use the catalogue mode to get the price = weight.

Tel me if you want me to show you how to do this .

All the best,

Ness

Hi Robert,

Polyboard doesn’t give directly the weight but you can use the total surface of the panels to calculate it.

If you post the project we can send you the workshop document that’ll have this data.

To get all the manufacturig documents please consider buying a Cabinet File service:

Here is the file.  It’s not totally complete yet, but probably close enough for what I need.  Thanks,

Hello,

I am currently working on a hanging storage cabinet with a fold out work bench.  I’d like to get a general idea of the total weight of the unit.  This will help me descide the best type of mounting to use.

Thanks,Workbench.jpgImage Enlarger
