There is a bathroom vanity that I'm interested in, and the
measurements from the factory are as follows:

SPEC (mm)  1400 x 530 x 845

MEAS (m^3):
Basin: 1100x640x850 = 0.6
Cabinet: 465x335x1070 = 0.16
Mirror: 800x900x120 = 0.086

NW (kg):
Basin: 31.5
Cabinet: 23.8
Mirror: 12.4

GW (kg):
Basin: 40

Please decipher these codes. Thanks.

Hi there!

I was "quiteconfused" for a moment, too.  Fortunately, the nice guys
at Home Depot were decidedly Not Confused and very helpful.

SPEC (mm)

The specifications are given in millimeters.

MEAS (m^3)

The measurements are in cubic meters (typically calculated length x
width x height).  This is the amount of space the piece occupies.

Basin: 1100x640x850 = 0.6 = The basin is .6 cubic meters
Cabinet: 465x335x1070 = 0.16 = The cabinet measures .16 cubic meters
Mirror: 800x900x120 = 0.086 = The mirror measurs .086 cubic meters

NW (kg)
The net weight is measured in kilograms.

Basin: 31.5 = the basin has a net weight of 31.5 kilograms
Cabinet: 23.8 = the cabinet has a net weight of 23.8 kilograms
Mirror: 12.4 = the mirror has a net weight of 12.4 kilograms

GW (kg)
The gross weight (the approximate weight of the piece before any
extraneous bits are removed) of the piece is measured in kilograms. 
This is also given as the shipping weight.

Basin: 40 = the basin has a gross weight of 40 kilograms
Cabinet: 32 = the cabinet has a gross weight of 32 kilograms
Mirror: 15 = the mirror has a gross weight of 15 kilograms

Hope that helps!
