Fixing the second wall bracket No 2
Draw a horizontal line through the vertical
at X. X is determined by the height of the
upper chimney. Place the bottom edge of
the bracket against the line, aligning the
centre of the bracket with the vertical line.
If, the alignment is correct mark the
centres for the keyhole fixing screws (not

5.
Splashback (Optional)
When the splashback is to be fitted, the
distance between the cooker hood and
the cooking appliance will be determined
by the height of the splashback B, as
illustrated in Fig. 4.
Position the splashback on the worktop,
ensuring the worktop is level first, as
illustrated in Fig. 4; then holding the
splashback against the wall mark the
position of the holes for the fixing screws.
The splashback must be fitted before
installing the cooker hood.
If the splashback is to be fitted in
conjunction with a slot-in cooker, or free
standing appliance then it will be
necessary to fix the splashback to the wall
using both the top and bottom wall fixing
screw holes.
Drill the holes for the fixing screws using
an 8mm masonry drill and fix the wall
brackets.
Note:
If the hood is to be installed
onto a hollow construction or plaster
or partition board wall then special
fixing screws will be required (not
supplied).
