There must be a safety distance of at
least 30" (760 mm), c between the
appliance and any objects above it.
The overhead cabinet depth, d, if
unprotected, must not exceed 13"
(330 mm). The minimum distance of
combustible surfaces located above
and to the sides of the cooktop, e, is
18" (457 mm).
If the cabinet manufacturer
recommends a greater distance, follow
that manufacturers recommendation.
