The Hot Zone
Before booking an installation, you need to be sure the ‘hot zone’ area’s suitable for your new cooker.
The ‘hot zone’ is the area above the cooker no combustible materials are allowed in the hot zone area—750mm above the hob and 50mm each side of the hob.
Make sure there are no kitchen units, shelves, switches, sockets, smoke alarms, electric cables, trunking, boilers or wallpaper/wood cladding in the hot zone area, anything that could catch fire.
If you’re unsure, give us a call, and one of our engineers will advise.
Your new cooker needs to be within 1.5 meters of the gas line and have a suitable connection that’ll allow a tight and safe fitting. If this isn’t the case with your gas line/connection, don’t worry, we can fit the required pipes and connection to make the installation work.
