The method of fixing the mounting brackets will depend on the type of wall the hood is to be mounted on. Below is a quick guide to fixings.
Fixing Brackets must be fixed no more than 900mm apart ensuring that a bracket is situated no more than 200mm from either end of each manufactured length of SUN HOOD. Once Brackets are fixed to the wall the SUN HOOD can be placed so as to sit on top of the brackets for the purpose of marking the position of the holes to be drilled into the SUN HOOD to accommodate the brackets. Hole depth = SUN HOOD Width—50mm.
On completion of drilling holes for mounting brackets the hood should be checked against mounting brackets for correct positioning. If OK the SUNHOOD should then be removed and prepared for final fixing.
