Wolf Endurance Cabinetry Buying Guide

Founded on the idea that premium cabinetry doesn't have to come at a premium price, Wolf Home Products has formulated a line of rugged, beautiful cabinets that give homeowners more for less. Although the industry mostly reserves jaw-dropping outdoor spaces for high-paying customers, we have taken all the characteristics of high-end cabinets and forged our own path with value in mind.

If you're thinking of remodeling your outdoor space and want to add storage, this article will help you learn more about our outdoor cabinetry products.

What Is Wolf Endurance?

The name is a bit of a giveaway, but Wolf Endurance cabinets are designed to last. Made from powder-coated aluminum that is rugged yet sleek and refined, these cabinets are at home in the harshest conditions. Whether you need cabinets for your garage or an outdoor kitchen for your deck, Wolf Endurance is up to the task.

Made from powder coated aluminum

Cabinets that are outdoors, in a garage, or even a mudroom often must deal with a lot of severe conditions that standard cabinets cannot handle, including moisture, salt, extreme temperatures, pollen, dust, rain, ice, and much more. All cabinetry, especially outdoor cabinets, must be easy to clean and able to maintain color and strength - even under the harshest conditions.

Wolf Endurance cabinets combine all these features with stunning beauty and elegance. They stay sealed and waterproof, keeping moisture and insects from getting into the cabinets - which keeps your supplies dry and looking like new.

Why Aluminum?

Aluminum is among the best building materials regarding strength, resistance to corrosion, and aesthetic quality. It's also lightweight, making installing and moving the cabinets much easier than those made with other metals.

Aluminum is loved for its durability-to-weight ratio — its low weight, easy workability, and structural rigidity make it the metal of choice for high-quality products.

Why Use Powder Coating?

Powder coating provides a much stronger finish, which stands up against harsh weather conditions. Wolf's exclusive powder-coated all-weather finish meets AAMA 2604 specifications.

Powder Coated Finish

Many cabinets are treated with liquid paint, which has several drawbacks. For one, it is less durable and can easily be scuffed and damaged. Secondly, it requires maintenance over time.

Construction Features

Wolf Endurance cabinets are made to the most exact specifications and needs of outdoor use. More specifically, our cabinets all have the following construction features:

  • · Sturdy Face Frame: The frame around the door or drawers are extremely rugged to avoid bending and damage. The face frames on Wolf Endurance cabinets are structurally sturdy and feature high-quality, weather-resistant powder coating.
  • · Solid-Core Doors: Our inset doors have a high-end appearance and feature a solid core for durability and high quality.
  • · Soft-Close Drawers: Wolf Endurance 24-inch deep drawers come standard with full-extension glides with a 100-lb. load rating, ensuring a gentle, quiet close. Say good-bye to slamming drawers and clanking dishes.
  • · Hidden Hinges: We guarantee premium cabinetry for non-premium prices, and perhaps nothing exemplifies our dedication to the small details like our concealed, six-way adjustable hinges. These do their work quietly, reliably, and out of sight.

Six-way adjustable hinges

  • · Adjustable Shelves: Made from high-grade aluminum, Wolf Endurance shelves are full-depth, 3/4" high, and have a 60-lb. load rating.
  • · Deep Storage: Wolf Endurance cabinet boxes are 28" deep, which is considered by many to be the optimal depth for a cabinet.
  • · Sturdy Aluminum Floor: The floor of a cabinet needs to be sturdy. Whether you're storing a full propane tank or a toolbox, Wolf Endurance cabinet bottoms are a one-piece fabricated bottom and sag under weight.
  • · Rubber Seals: Nothing can replace a high-grade automotive rubber seal for keeping moisture and pests out. Our rubber seals form a waterproof barrier to keep your items dry and safe.
  • · Adjustable Legs: Rare is the person who isn't troubled by a wobbly table or cabinet. Our cabinets feature stainless steel legs you can adjust 1” to create a stable, non-rocking cabinet position.
  • · Stainless Steel Bar Pulls: Included with all cabinets, our stainless steel bar pulls create a tasteful, stylish, and crisp look on the outside of our drawers and doors.
    · Solid Panels: Wolf Endurance side and back panels are formed from one piece and powder-coated to ensure a finished look

Top Benefits of Wolf Endurance Cabinets

Wolf Endurance cabinets are designed to impress. Customers are thrilled with their longevity and ability to look new, even after years of use. Some of their most significant benefits include:

  • · Aluminum Construction: Aluminum is perhaps the most coveted metal for building outdoor furniture. Its resistance to corrosion and its strength make it ideal for the long haul, meaning you’ll get many years of use out of your cabinets.
  • · Powder-Coated Finish: Oftentimes the first impression of cabinets is that they are only as good as their surface treatments. Powder coating is undoubtedly the most durable and effective option available today. Powder-coating the aluminum provides for a finish that protects the cabinet from just about anything you — or nature — can throw at it.
  • · Sealed Storage: Moisture is the greatest enemy of the builder. It rots, molds, and corrodes most anything we use to build our homes. That's why Wolf Endurance has a host of unique engineering capabilities designed to keep moisture out. You'll always find your items dry, clean, and pristine — even after the mightiest rain storm.
  • · Fully Assembled: Wolf Endurance cabinets, however, come fully assembled and ready to use. Come rain or shine, they will work beautifully without the hassle of assembly.

Fully Assembled

  • · Lightweight: One of the best qualities of aluminum is the ability to pick it up and move it. Particularly with cabinets — which at some point you may want to move to another spot — manageable weight is a much-appreciated quality. Most importantly, however, the low weight does not come at the cost of strength.
  • · Easy to Configure and Install: Wouldn't it be nice if every surface we dealt with were level, plumb, and square? Since this isn't the case, Wolf Endurance cabinets are made to fit nearly any space. If you're installing your cabinets on decking or other level surfaces, adjustable feet allow you to make it level. Custom configurations mean you can have your cabinets fitted for any space in your home.
  • · Recycled Materials Mean Green Cabinets: Wolf Endurance cabinets are made from 25 percent recycled materials, which reflects our commitment to creating quality products while also being friendly to our planet.
