Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) tests cabinets for performance and durability through well established and independently verified industry standards. Cabinets are tested to withstand spills, heat, weight loads, and other challenges. Read more about the testing on KCMA website. With the KCMA certification you have a better piece of mind. Please note the KCMA certification is usually performed by taking sample cabinets from a factory or warehouse. KCMA tests factory assembled cabinets only. Therefore, the certification applies to cabinets that are factory assembled.
