1. Material suitable for PITT ® by Reginox
1a.
PITT® by Reginox can be built into:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Compact board (eg. Trespa)
Solid Surface (eg. Corian, LG-HIMACS, GetaCore, Krion)
Quartz Composite (eg. Caesarstone, Silestone)
Concrete
Glass
Natural stone (eg. graniet, marble)
Stainless steel
Ceramics
!
PITT® by Reginox should never be installed in: solid wood and worktops with an HPL top layer.
1b.
The minimal thickness of the core material is 4 mm. For Solid Surface, Quartz composite,
compact board and natural stone applies a minimal thickness of the core material (solid) of
10 mm. For all materials applies a maximum thickness of 35 mm.
!
The bottom of the core material needs to be completely flat. This is to bring the heat
conductor in full contact with the worktop.

2. Cut out
!
The guidelines of the kitchen manufacturer and/or the manufacturer of the kitchen worktop
should always be strictly followed.

Fig. 2
The C-size should be at least 50 mm (fig.1). With the XL models, it should be at least 75 mm (fig.2).
The distance between the cut out and the sides (left or right) of the worktop should be at least
150 mm.

Fig. 4
The insides of the recess(es) should be smooth and even (fig. 3). Irregularities can cause cracking
(fig. 4).
Facet 1x1 mm
Fig.5
2C.
On the top and bottom of the recess(es) should be a facet of at least 1x1 mm be applied (with
exception for Solid Surface) (fig. 5).
2. Cut out
In case of Solid Surface the following extra instructions apply:
!
2d.
The guidelines of the manufacturer of the Solid Surface material should always be strictly
followed.
Use a router or CNC machine to prevent jagged recesses.
Radius R= 3mm

2e.
A range of minimum R=3 mm should be applied on the top and bottom of the recess(es). By sanding
it smooth afterwards, possible cracks can be prevented (fig. 6).
Aluminum tape
Thermo tape
Aluminum tape
No Thermo tape
at the bottom

2f.
Apply aluminium tape and thermo tape in the recess(es), in this order:
1. aluminium tape, 2. thermo tape, 3. aluminium tape (fig. 7).
The aluminium tape should be overlapping the worktop surface on the top and bottom with at least
5 mm. The Thermo tape should be overlapping only the top of the worktop with at least 5 mm.
This seal will offer protection to the changes in temperature.

Adhesive connections and/or interconnections should never intersect the recess(es).
These should have a distance of at least 250 mm to the recess(es) (fig. 9 and 10).
3. Installation worktop
!
The guidelines of the kitchen manufacturer and/or the manufacturer of the kitchen worktop
should always be strictly followed.

3a.
The cabinets should be placed perfectly levelled (fig. 11 and 12).
3b.
In the case of bottom cabinets with a closed top, these should be the same size (+10mm) as the
PITT® by Reginox module. This is to bring the heat conductor in full contact with the core material.

The PITT® by Reginox module should have full support on left, right front and back in the kitchen
worktop (fig. 13). This prevents tension in the worktop from the weight of the PITT® by Reginox
module.
3d.
The distance between the kitchen worktop and the wall and/or cabinets should be at least 3 mm
(fig. 14). This allows the material to expand.
4. Installation PITT® by Reginox into the worktop
!
Strictly follow the PITT® by Reginox installation instructions.
Support
+900 mm

Fig. 16
In the case of a cabinet width of 900 mm or more, the PITT® by Reginox module should always be
fully supported to prevent bending of the kitchen worktop (fig. 15 and 16).
