A template is taken at the actual level and size that your new solid surface top will be manufactured to. The template is crafted on site, outlining appliance locations, overhangs, polished edges; everything that is necessary to manufacture the stone benchtops accurately.
Templates occur when all base cabinets are fitted, this includes; doors, drawers and end panels. All Cabinets must be securely fastened to the wall to ensure that the templates are being crafted at the correct position. If it is a renovation, existing tops must be taken off prior to templating.
Appliances are required on site to make sure that they are placed in correct position on template in order for installation to be correct and to ensure appliances fit to our tops (clearances front and back).
You will receive a call the day before your pre-organized template date to advise you of your approximate template time (please note; unforeseen circumstances, whilst are allowed for may be out of control of the timing indicated). The template will provide 1/2hr notice on the day.
The purpose of templates is for template maker to provide factory with correct measurements for bench top manufacturing and position of appliances, correct overhangs and to assess the site and cabinetry.
Please notify the Production Coordinator if any changes to the area have been made after the templates. This will affect the templates and the job may need to be re-templated. This will cause a delay in the installation date.
