The standards section for "Tray Dividers" is labeled Tray Dividers when you are building face frame cabinets and is labeled V. Partitions + Tray Dividers in Euro.
- Tray Dividers: Tray dividers are defined as any internal partition that does not sit behind a face frame piece or in Euro it is an internal cabinet divider that doesn't affect the cabinets door openings.
- Vertical Partitions: In Euro we will differentiate between tray dividers and vertical partitions. The difference is whether the vertical piece being placed affects the layout of the doors (in which case we call the piece a vertical divider) or the vertical piece may have no affect on the doors and just be a piece to divide the internal space (in which case we call it a tray divider).
In face frame construction, we will use a piece called a partition. It is a vertical piece that sits behind a face frame piece. They are a key part in making custom face frame cabinets (see Editing Cabinets).
