Tall Appliance Housing

 

 

Again these housings are based on a similar design to the floor cupboards in that they have a 30mm scribe and this should be removed so that the top of the cupboard is at the datum height of 2150mm.

With uneven floors it may be that you do not need to remove exactly 30mm, but this will all depend on the scribe that has taken place through the installation.

 

This should also be scribed as the floor cupboards.

Scribing the cupboards is perhaps the trickiest job to be carried out. In our experience it is best to set out all the cupboards on whatever packers are required to establish an absolute level worktop. At this point it does not matter how high the worktop is off the floor. You will need to establish the highest point on your floor and at this point this will be the smallest packer. Measure 870mm from the top of the cupboard (if using a 30mm worktop, or 880mm if using a 20mm worktop) and mark this point on the leg of this particular cupboard. Now open your school compass with a sharp HB pencil! so that the point is on your floor and the pencil is pointing to the mark just made. This is your set scribed dimension. With the cupboards still temporarily in place and level, using the school compass mark a pencil line following the line of your floor across both the leg and skirting. You will now see a line across all the cupboards, which is your scribe line. This is where your jigsaw will now come in handy and we would suggest that this line is undercut, in other words perfect at the front but perhaps 2-3mm less at the back. If you have followed these instructions the cupboards should sit perfectly on the floor.
