The HobSurround adapts for your worktop needs, the customisable ordering options will save you replacing your pre-existing worktop when fitting a new hob, or in the event you have damaged your worktop with scratches or burns around the hob area, saving you time and money.

The HobSurround enhances the look of your worktop, it is easy to keep clean due to its clever design, being a single solid piece of 1.2mm brushed stainless steel, cut to precision with our fiber laser cutter. Our unique design provides additional working surfaces – you no longer need to worry about burning your worktop with hot pans! There is also sufficient space to prepare food and catch spills. See the product page for different options as we have a double sided and single sided protective working surface.

Using our laboratory tested HobSurround glue* you can be assured the HobSurround will stick down to your worktop.

It is simple to install the HobSurround, the hob itself should be fitted by a suitably qualified person, see fitting instructions for more details.

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

Place your HobSurround on the worktop, place masking tape around the outside edge of the HobSurround. If your worktop has not already been cut-out ready to receive your hob, you can use the aperture on the HobSurround as a guide for cutting.

You can now remove the HobSurround and set safely aside for now. Using an abrasive cloth/sandpaper, score the surfaces to be glued including the underside of the HobSurround.

Now clean your worktop surface and underside of the HobSurround with a clean dry cloth.

Apply the HobSurround glue to the worktop at 1cm intervals in thin strips to cover the whole of area inside of the masking tape. Keep 1cm clear of the edges. Firmly fix the HobSurround to worktop and press down all edges, working from the edges to the centre.

Remove the masking tape from the external edges and wipe off any surplus glue. A light weight may be placed each side of surround whilst the glue is curing. Leave for at least 24 hours before use. Application temperature must be between +5oC and +40oC.
