Open-Bench Installation Kit
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.
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.
