2. BEFORE STARTING : TAKE SOME PRECAUTIONS
1) GET SPACE READY FOR NEW KITCHEN
Create spare kitchen
Create storage space
Prepare and protect the visible surfaces of your room
2) PEACE OF MIND
Check the positioning of electrical outlets and plumbing with your layout
3) CHECK THE LEVEL OF THE FLOOR AND THE BRACKETNESS OF THE WALLS, THEN CHOOSE THE MOST SUITABLE WALL FIXINGS
4) SECURITY AND SAFETY ADVICES DURING THE FITTING
Do not remove the film on the fronts,it is a protection against possible impacts during installation
Why remove the fronts ?
During fitting, you must haveaccess to the interior of the unit :
5) SECURITY AND SAFETY ADVICES DURING THE FITTING
- Do not hesitate to ask for help or advice if you are unsure.
- Beware of the cutting edge of the cardboard and paper!
- Never climb on boxes or furniture, use a stepladder!
- Use the correct wall fixings.
- Make rounded cutouts of the worktop, or it may crack
- When cutting the laminate worktop, be careful not to cut yourself on the shards.
- Do not put spot on top of a door, to avoid the risk of fire.
- Be careful to the glass shelves on the non-slip tab to avoid cutting yourself with broken glass.
Be careful with the screws!

1) PLACING YOUR WORKTOP
Check the direction: edge towards the outside
2) LOCATE AND DRAW THE POSITIONG OF UNITS
The sinks must always be placed on a single worktop.
Realise your cuts according to the furniture.
3) CUT THE WORKTOP
Cut with rounded corners is mandatory. Use a hole saw or a wick of minimum Ø 10mm.
Sink: Check if you need to cut the space of only the sink or sink + drainer (see instructions of the sink).
Rules to be followed between 2 cutouts:
– 7 cm mini between the cutout and the front edge
– 4 cm mini between 2 cutouts
4) LINKING 2 WORKTOPS

3.Place the worktop assembler and tighten firmly
5) SEAL AND POSITION YOUR WORKTOP
Apply anti fungicidal silicone on your wall or on the edge of the worktop(1).And press against the wall (2) (3).
Remove excess with a squeegee and soapy water.Then make a bead seal along the walls(4).
6) FIXING THE WORKTOP
11. ELEMENTS ON WORKTOP
1) SEAL THE CUTOUTS OF THE WORKTOP
In the flushfittings and cut-outs for hobs and sinks: Protect the edge of the cutout with aluminum adhesive, silicone joint or neoprene glue.
2) PLACE THE SINK
Our advice: To ensure sealing and maintenance,sinks must be based on a silicone layer. It is necessary to install the supplied brackets in addition to the silicone seal.
– Excessive tightening can put the sink under pressure and create unnecessary tensions.
– Do not screw the cups tight to avoid them breaking.
– When opending of emptying bag, ensure that no part escapes.
– Check after a few years the state of your joints to redo if necessary
3) PLACING THE HOB
4) PLACE THE TAP ON THE SINK
– Purge the system (completely empty pipes of impurities) before connecting the tap.
– The tightening of the supply hoses in the body of the tap must be done without tools.
12. PEMOMSULAR FTONT

13. DECORATIVE PANEL
1) AS A SPLASBACK
Once installed the backsplash, make a silicone seal.
2) IN AN END PANEL
We recommend that you install a sealing profiled(Ref PROFALV or PROMIRC.Drop the silicone in the groove of the profile that receives the joint between the profile and the worktop).
3) ON A BACK
1) CUT THE FILLER INTO THE CORRECT WIDTH
Finishes are essential to the success of a fitting.At this stage, all errors will be visible and depreciatory. Also, take your time and calmly prepare the following operations.
2) PLACE THE FILLER
Option 1: front filler
The front filler is made of 2 assembled parts. The front of the filler must be aligned with the front of the door.
Place the carcass filler 1 mm withdrawn from the front of the carcass.
