PUR-bonded adhesive
On all formed edging the edgebanding is with a PUR-Bonded adhesive. Bonding is on carcasses,
fronts and surround material.
Quality advantages:
Improved thermal resistence through physical/chemical setting. (e.g. also through extreme heat
influence) Optimum protection against moisture intrusion.
Emissions class
The high quality standard of product includes the observance of allowable formaldehyde limits in all
materials and components. Through an appropriate selection of raw particleboard as well as the corresponding surface coating and in addition also including the edging, the upper limits of E1 emission
values are strictly adhered to, respectively fall well short of these. (Emissions class E1 = 0.1 ppm =
parts per million = 0.1 parts formaldehyde in 1 million parts of air) The chipboards used in carcass
construction are so, that these are prepared corresponding to the raw chipboard E1 provisions, thus
any subjective risks are excluded.

Care and operating instructions
General care instructions
This section contains information on points to be observed in the daily care of your high quality kitchen. The different materials (surfaces) in a kitchen are generally very easy to
care for and easy to clean. Here are some basic instructions on caring for your kitchen in normal use.
Please note the following care instructions:
Kitchen fronts should always be cleaned with mild, water-soluble household cleaners explicitly recommended for kitchen furniture in the product information. Never use aggressive agents or abrasive cloths, cleaners or sponges, such as scouring powder, steel wool, pan scourers or dirt erasers. Never use solvent-based cleaners such as cellulose
thinner, acetone, nail varnish remover, etc. A steam cleaner or water jet from a hose should not be used. Damage by moisture, water and heat will invalidate the warranty and
result in the loss of your warranty rights.
General rule:
To avoid damaging the surface the protective film should not be removed until assembly work is complete. Use a soft, lint-free cloth, chamois or soft sponge.
After cleaning the fronts, they must be carefully wiped dry. Always ensure that all surfaces are dry. Residual moisture / water can cause permanent damage.
GB
Melamine fronts
The high quality, robust melamine fronts should be cleaned with conventional water-soluble household cleaning agents or
kitchen cleaners. They are best cleaned with hand-hot water and a soft, damp cleaning cloth. Then wipe the surfaces until they
are dry. Do not use aggressive or scouring cleaners, polishes or waxes, hard sponges or steam cleaners.
Glass cleaner can be used to remove stubborn soiling (old grease residues, etc.). Test the cleaning product in an inconspicuous place first.
GB
Lacquered and laminated fronts
Lacquered and laminated fronts should be cleaned regularly.
Light soiling:
Damp microfibre cloth and wipe dry.
Light to moderate soiling:
Standard water-soluble household cleaner: spray on and wipe with a microfibre cloth, then wipe dry.
Major soiling:
Grease-dissolving all-purpose cleaner: spray on and wipe with a microfibre cloth, then continue cleaning as in the case of light
to moderate soiling.
Stubborn soiling:
Thoroughly MOISTEN the magic sponge/dirt eraser with water.
Spray the surface with standard household cleaner.
Move the sponge over the surface uniformly and with gentle pressure.
DO NOT SCRUB. Ensure that the sponge remains MOIST.
Then continue cleaning as in the case of light to moderate soiling.
GB
Glass fronts
Glass is extremely easy to care for. Dirt can be removed from the front with a damp / wet cloth or glass cleaner.
Note: Glass is a highly resistant and very hard material. Ensure that the glass surface of the front does not inappropriately
come into contact with pointed, sharp or hard objects. In such a case, damage to the glass or even breakage cannot be
excluded.
Matt glass fronts
Matt glass fronts should be cleaned regularly.
Light soiling:
Damp microfibre cloth and wipe dry.
Light to moderate soiling:
Standard water-soluble household cleaner: spray on and wipe with a microfibre cloth, then wipe dry.
Major soiling:
Grease-dissolving all-purpose cleaner: spray on and wipe with a microfibre cloth, then continue cleaning as in the case of light
to moderate soiling.
Stubborn soiling:
Thoroughly MOISTEN the magic sponge/dirt eraser with water.
Spray the surface with standard household cleaner.
Move the sponge over the surface uniformly and with gentle pressure.
DO NOT SCRUB. Ensure that the sponge remains MOIST.
Then continue cleaning as in the case of light to moderate soiling.

Organic glass optic fronts
Kitchen fronts made of organic glass are made of a very easy to clean resistant acrylic material. Most stains and smudges can
be removed with a damp microfiber cloth moistened with a household cleaning agent.
To remove stubborn soiling a commercially available PVC cleaner with a soft sponge will help. Do not use abrasive cleaning
sponges or brushes (e.g. Scotch-Brite, scouring pads, etc.), as they will cause scratch marks when applied with high force.
Note:
The surface is scratch and abrasion resistant, but prolonged exposure to chemicals can damage the material. Aggressive
cleaning agents such as scouring powder, drain or industrial cleaners should be avoided.
GB
High-gloss lacquer fronts
Gentle cleaning is important to preserve an optimum surface finish. For this reason, please note the following tips:
Clean the high-gloss lacquer fronts regularly.
Loose dust:
Can be wiped off with a soft clean cloth, without applying pressure.
Normal soiling:
Immerse a clean cloth / chamois leather (or Vileda cloth) in lukewarm water and gently wring out the surplus water. Rub the
surfaces with the damp cloth, applying gentle pressure, then wipe with a soft cleaning cloth until dry.
Never clean the complete front all at the same time - only clean 1 to 2 front parts at any one time.
Major soiling:
It is advisable to add a dash of mild household cleaner to the water in order to remove grease, nicotine and other residues.
(Good results can also be obtained by mixing some hand soap or glass cleaner into the water).
Important:
Never use microfibre cloths or excessively hard cleaning cloths (e.g. linen cloths, paper, old cotton underwear with hard seams,
etc.). These can scratch the surface.
GB
Matt lacquer fronts
Matt lacquer fronts and surfaces should be cleaned in the same way as high gloss lacquer fronts.
Never use aggressive scouring agents/powders, steel wool, polishes, (bees)wax, furniture cleaner, detergents containing
strong acids, steam cleaners or dirty cloths. If the surface is rubbed or scoured too intensively they - like excessively rough
cloths or sponges with rough sides - produce shiny streaks or patches which can damage the surface and cannot subsequently be removed.
Grease residues must also be removed as soon as possible. If left for too long, dried-on grease/oil or tomato juice residues can
cause permanent damage / staining / shiny streaks.
Caution: excessive pressure when cleaning can permanently damage the surface.
GB
Lacquer ultra-matt fronts
Ultra-matt fronts are a new category of matt decorative lacquered fronts in a premium design. Thanks to an innovative coating
based on UV lacquer technology with anti-fingerprint properties, an exceptional surface evenness can be created.
Light soiling:
Use a soft, lint-free cloth, chamois or sponge. Do not use any microfibre cloths or dirt erasers. If the surface is damp cleaned,
you should then dry it off using an absorbent paper towel to prevent the formation of streaks.
Normal soiling:
Clean the surface using warm water, a clean cleaning cloth or soft sponge. Where necessary, standard mild household cleaners or neutral soap without scouring properties can be used. Wash down afterwards with clean water to remove all traces of
the cleaning agent to avoid the formation of streaks. The surface should then be dried off with an absorbent, clean wash cloth
or paper towel. Standing water and other liquids may cause permanent damage.
The following cleaning agents should not be used:
Abrasive and scouring materials (microfibre cloths, scouring powder, cleaning sponges, steel wool, etc.) polish agents, detergents, furniture cleaners, bleaching agents.

Wood fronts
Wood and wood veneer is a natural product and is subject to the phenomena that occur in nature. Solid wood and wood veneer surfaces are specially treated to prevent dirt from penetrating into the wood itself. Solid wood and wood veneer surfaces
are subject to natural colour changes due to the effect of light. As a living material, wood expands and contracts on repeated
exposure to very moist or dry air.
The fronts/surfaces should always be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. Never use liquid scouring agents (such as CIF), steel
wool, polishes, (bees)wax, furniture cleaner, detergents containing strong acids, steam cleaners or dirty cloths.
Grease residues must also be removed as soon as possible. If left for too long, dried-on grease/oil or corrosive fruit juice
residues, etc., can cause permanent damage / staining / shiny streaks.
GB
Laminate worktops
Laminate worktops must be cleaned regularly. Any standard household cleaner can be used for this purpose.
Clean the worktops with warm (hand-hot) water with the addition of some household cleaner. Using lukewarm or cold water
can cause discolouration and unsightly streaks on the surface. A soft cloth or sponge should be used to apply the water/
cleaning product. Dry off with paper towel.
Note:
Never use scouring / sanding products, detergents containing acid or strong acids / salts, steel wool or dirty cloths. Your
kitchen will suffer if pools of water are left to stand for any length of time or if damp sponges or cloths are left lying on the butt
joins between worktop panels. Always remove them straight away and wipe dry.
Do not place hot pans, pots or baking sheets directly on the laminate worktop – always use a pot stand. Avoid cutting directly
on the laminate worktop. We recommend always using a chopping board. Damage caused by improper use of the laminate
worktop will invalidate the warranty and result in the loss of your warranty rights.
GB
FENIX®-worktops
In order that the surface remains looking good, certain points should be observed:
Daily cleaning recommendationDaily cleaning with a dirt eraser is recommended for sustainable regeneration of the surface.
General care informationAlthough FENIX® APL is highly abrasion- and scratch resistant, no abrasive or scouring substances
or sponges, including sand paper and steel wool, should be used for cleaning.
The use of substances with strongly caustic or alkaline ingredients should be avoided.
Avoid using furniture polish and moisturising cleaners, because these can leave a film on the surface which will cause later
soiling.

Fitted sinks
Stainless steel:
Always dry the sink with a soft cloth after use. This prevents scale deposits and rims from building up in the first place. Use a
recommended stainless steel care agent or a cleaner with scale-dissolving action for intensive cleaning and to freshen up the
surface.
SILGRANIT©:
SILGRANIT© contains dirt-repellent additives. These ensure durable protection against scale formation and staining, as well
as maximum easy care.
It is usually sufficient to wipe the surface with a damp cloth. However, if scale or dirt does accumulate, use a standard
household detergent for thorough cleaning. Particularly intensive scale stains can be removed with hot water at a temperature
of approx. 60°C and a scouring pad.
GB
Steam and heat
Avoid having clouds of water vapour coming into direct contact with the furniture parts. If visible signs of moisture are observed
(droplets of water, etc.), the moisture must be removed immediately using a dry cloth.
Note:
Never use a kettle or coffee machine below wall units. The steam can cause moisture / swelling damage that cannot be
repaired.
Keep the dishwasher door closed for at least 30 minutes after the programme has come to an end. Hot steam must not be
allowed to come into contact with furniture parts as this can cause long-term (moisture) damage. The same applies to heavily
furred-up coffee machines and kettles. The hot steam can cause damage.
If steam unexpectedly condenses on furniture parts, dry it off straight away.
GB
Moving parts:
The life of moving parts, hinges and other moving fittings can be extended with occasional cleaning.
Moving parts should be given a drop of resin-free oil every two years. The runner components of pharmacy-style tall units
must not be oiled. Dry dirt can be wiped off them with a dry cloth. If necessary, stubborn dirt can be removed with a little glass
cleaner and a dry cloth. However, moving plastic parts should never be greased or oiled.
Note: Be sure to keep drawer and pull-out runners clean. In particular, remove crumbs and dirt particles immediately with a
paintbrush or the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner.
Dirt can prevent moving parts from working (correctly).
GB
Handles and knobs
Remove any soiling immediately, if possible. In most cases, cleaning agents will not be needed. Soiling can usually be removed without difficulty using hand-hot water and a soft cloth. If necessary, an even better result can be obtained by adding a
dash of washing-up liquid to the water. Do not use any caustic household cleaners and abrasive or scouring cleaners.
Then wipe the surface of the handle until it is dry.
Waxes, polishes and solvents must not be used to clean the surface of handles. When using microfibre cloths, please note the
manufacturers‘ instructions, as such cloths have very different surface textures which can damage the surface of the handles.
Steam cleaners must not be used.
