Ensuring your worktop template is accurate is fundamental to a successful fabrication and worktop installation. We use a traditional method of templating with MDF boards and always consider these rules as we template;
- The kitchen base cabinets are marked with the location of the joint that is going to be fabricated on the surface.
- An mdf template is made for each piece of the worktop surface to be cut.
- Templates are then cut to the exact shape and dimensions required, walls are scribed, overhangs allowed for.
- Sinks and taps, hobs and any other cut-outs are marked on the template.
- Any fabrication notes are marked on the template, such as edges requiring polishing or adjoining edges for example.
- Returning to the factory, the template pieces are then arranged on the slabs and marked out.
- Before cutting the slabs, we check the flatness of the surface at the planned location of the seams.
- The existing edges of the slab are always used as the edge adjoining the wall. Visible edges of the worktop are never cut from the slab edges.
