Range cooker fitting

Posted by Jill Entwistle, on
My cooker is fitted, but the pipework needs to be chased back into the wall so that the cooker is flush with the cupboards either side. All electrical work is done, skirt and splash back fitted etc.

It is not possible to embed gas pipework into a wall. It must take the shortest route through i.e. one side to the other. Otherwise it can be ducted, a very expensive option just for a cooker. It may be possible to reduce how much it protrudes but generally that's that. The cooker usually accomodates this by design. There may be protrusion at the front slightly. :-) Rodal Heating.
