Templating Fact Sheet:
Please pass this onto your kitchen installer To enable us to complete your template satisfactorily, please be aware of the following points: PLEASE NOTE THE MAJORITY OF OUR TEMPLATES ARE COMPLETED DIGITALLY. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLETELY EMPTY KITCHEN FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS. ALL TEMPORARY TOPS TO BE REMOVED AND ALL OTHER ITEMS COMPLETELY CLEARED FROM THE AREA. All base units must be firmly fixed to the walls and levelled.
Day of Templating:
Landford Stone will be using the latest digital technology when we come out to template your new kitchens and bathrooms etc. To help us with a smooth fast process, we would like to ask that on the date of the template, the kitchen is kept clear and all builders/contractors can vacate the room until templating is completed.
All under mounted, ceramic or cast iron sinks must be supported in the base unit on a framework/cradle. Stainless Steel sinks preferably mounted as above but these can be suspended from the granite if necessary. Stainless Steel sinks must be mounted in a cradle for engineered stone worktops. Please note that we do not suspend bowls from 20mm or 20+20mm granite. All sinks must be on site when the templater arrives.
Taps/Drinking Water Filter & Pop up Sockets:
Taps and electrical pop up sockets should be on site when the templater arrives. If this is not possible all relevant information should be available to the Templater i.e. Hole size and tap throw. All tap positions to be marked out on units or walls prior to the templater arriving.
All hobs must be on site when the templater arrives.
AGA & Range Cookers
Unless your AGA/Rayburn etc. is fitted in the final position we cannot template to an acceptable standard and therefore no work can be undertaken until this is achieved. This includes all Aga’s and Range cookers. Breakfast Bars, Islands & Peninsulars: All large Breakfast Bars, Islands, Peninsulars or seating areas must have a minimum of 18mm MDF or plywood sub-base in position at time of template. The sub-base can be 50/100mm smaller than the final granite dimensions. The maximum unsupported overhang allowed is 300mm, any larger will require you to provide the extra support needed with legs or corbel supports. All radiuses and overhang sizes on Islands and Peninsulars to be decided prior to the templaters arrival.
20+20 or 30+30 Worktops:
Templaters will discuss and advise the customers what will be required prior to installation.
Please arrange for all existing worktops to be removed prior to the Templater’s arrival. This includes the removal of sinks, taps and hobs.
Work Required before Installation.
The templater will advise you of any work that you will be required to do such as battening after his templating visit. Should this work not be carried out prior to installation, this could cause a delay in fitting. If our Templater cannot complete the template due to problems on site, it will probably necessitate an additional visit, which may incur delay and extra costs. If you have any technical questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to call and ask for a Technical Adviser or a Templater.
PLEASE NOTE THAT LANDFORD STONE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DISCONNECT/CONNECT ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES, PLUMBING OR GAS AS OUR MEN ARE NOT CERTIFITED TO DO SO
