ƒ The ducting system for this appliance must not be connected to any existing ventilation system which is being
used for any other purpose.
ƒ This extractor is supplied with flexible ducting that extends to 2 metres.
ƒ If site conditions make it necessary to extend the length, the size of the additional ducting must not be of a lesser
cross sectional area and the ducting outlet must provide minimal flow resistance. Failure to follow this instruction

Clearance Heights
• This cooker hood is designed to be fitted over a cooking appliance at the clearance heights stated.
o Electric hob not exceeding 7kw a clearance height of 650mm is required
o Gas hob not exceeding 10kw a clearance height of 650mm is required.
• If the output of the appliance below the cooker hood exceeds the maximum outputs quoted for each kW in
excess of 10kw the distance between extractor and gas hob must be increased by 10cm.
However it is the manufacturer of the gas hob who determines the clearance required between
hob & extractor and the clearance quoted by the gas hob manufacturer must be followed.
There is no mandatory clearance for electric hobs and the clearance as quoted above should be followed.
If the hob manufacturer provides no instructions, cannot provide the installer with the dimension or, in the case of an
old hob, no dimensions can be found; the installer must follow the BS 6172 “Default Standard” and ensure that a clear
“box”, as in the illustration below, exists above and around hob.
Note: The 760mm clearance is between the top of the burners and combustible material and not from the worktop. In
practice, since the burners are usually 30-40mm above the level of the worktop, this means the clearance is effectively
To ensure a safe and secure installation it is vital that the installer ensures that the ceiling which supports the extractor
must be capable of supporting at least 40 kgs weight.
The thickness of the ceiling must be at least 30mm and suitable for the screws that secure the Hanging Board in
Cut a 170 mm round hole in the ceiling.
Fix the Hanging Board to the ceiling using 12 pcs of ST6* 40mm big flat headed screws.
Using 8 pcs of M4*10 bolts, nuts and washers fix the four lengths of metal angle to the hanging board as shown in pic
Measure and calculate the length of the four lengths of metal angle required to support the extractor at the required
Using the 16 pcs of M4*10 bolts, nuts and washers connect the four sections of metal angle to those already fitting to
the hanging board overlapping the sections by at least 100mm, see pic 3.
Feed the flexible ducting through the hole in the ceiling and connect to the ducting system to be used, see pic 3.
10. Slide the INTERNAL chimney section up over the angle sections and secure to the hanging board using the 4 pcs ST4**
screws, see pic 4.
11. Slide the External chimney section up over the angle sections and the already fitted internal section and temporally hold
in position using the two hooks supplied, see pic 4.
12. Fix the outlet spigot to the top of the extractor using 4 pcs ST4*8 screws, see pic 5.
13. Check that the glass is correctly fixed to the extractor, see pic 6. (FOR CGI910 ONLY)
14. Offer the extractor up to the metal angle hanging supports and fix using 16 pcs M4*10 screws, see pic 7.
15. Connect the flexible pipe to the extractor outlet, pic 8.
16. Connect the extractor to the electricity supply.
17. Check the installation is secure and level.
18. When satisfied that all is OK remove the hooks that are holding the external chimney section up and gently lower into
position, see pic 9.
