We have bought a very heavy solid wood cabinet. I would like your help
to determine if my living room hardwood floor can take this weight.
It weights 580 lbs empty. With our items added to it, I estimate the
weight of this cabinet would be 830 lbs. The wood cabinet is 20" deep,
67" wide and 90" high. The cabinet would rest on the floor using 4
levelers. This implies the load on each leveler, will by 830 lbs
divided by 4 i.e. about 208 lbs approx per leveler.
The levelers have a 0.75 square inch surface area. This implies the
load on the floor through each leveler is 208 lbs / 0.75 square inches
= 277 lbs /
We want to place the cabinet in a ground floor room, butting a wall
that is also an exterior wall of the house. [Cabinet would extend 20
inches out from this wall into the room].
The house has a crawl space below. The flooring in the room is Bruce
Can you advise on whether my floor can take the weight of the cabinet?
Is there additional data I need to gather, before this question can be
Thanks a lot for your help
