Counterstanding

Counterstanding Cupboards are designed to sit hard on the worktop and are fixed to the wall in the same way as a Wall Cupboard, using a batten and screwing down through the top overhang at the rear of the Cupboard. You may wish to fit a corresponding batten at approximately 100mm above the worktop, to hold the cupboard straight. You can fix through the cupboard back into this batten but in our experience, fixing just the top is sufficient. If you have a particularly low ceiling and cannot get your screwdriver in over the top of the cupboard to get a secret fixing, you will have to fix through the cupboard back.
