    Open-Bench Installation Kit

    fascia-on-CCQWhenever the space underneath a barbeque bench is left open there is  a serious safety issue, especially when there are children around.

    If exposed, the under-side of any barbeque is simply too hot to touch safely.

    Christie Open-Bench Installation Kits overcome this problem by enclosing the under-bench components in a protective cabinet.

    The CCQ’s Open-Bench Installation Kit even includes an in-built fat tray.

    The Kit consists of an enclosure that drops into the cut-out made in the benchtop for the CCQ cooktop.

    The benchtop is not part of the Open-Bench package, so designers have real flexibility in choosing benchtop shapes and non-combustible materials.

    O-B Kits are ideal for replacing old barbeques with state-of-the-art CCQ cooktops in situations where the underside of the CCQ is easily accessible.

    To do this, the existing structure must meet the minimum mandatory requirements.

    Open-Bench Kit.

    The Open-Bench Installation Kit is a CCQ accessory that can be ordered with either a Gas or Electric CCQ cooktop.

    It consists of a  Stainless Steel enclosure  with an integral Fat Tray that can be completely removed for easy cleaning.

    Integration of the Fat Tray means the Open-Bench Kit is designed to be installed under cover.

    If sited outdoors, the CCQ must be fitted with an optional Safety Lid to prevent rain water or sprinklers from over-filling the Fat Tray.

    Replacing Old Hotplates.

    New gas or electric CCQ cooktops can be installed into an existing barbeque structure using an Open-Bench Kit , so long as the bench in that structure meets the following criteria:

    The benchtop must be made of non-combustible material, be a minimum of 750mm deep and 900mm high off the ground for safety.

    The cut-out in the bench that the O-B Installation Kit will be dropped into must be at least 495mm x 495mm and no larger than 540mm x 540mm.
