Kitchen Unit Wall Fixing Heights for Drylining Battens

Postby Cymrodor » Wed Jul 08, 2015 7:47 pm

I'm battening out a wall to dry line it before installing a kitchen. I've not bought the kitchen yet but would like to know at what heights I should put the horizontal battens to take the screws holding wall units to the wall. It wouldn't happen to be the same for both standard and tall wall unit heights?

Standard worktop height is 900mm, so about 850mm above finished floor level should be ok. As for wall units, if you leave the usual 450mm for tiling and your wall units are 720mm high, then mark approx 75mm below the top line for the centre of a batten.(hope that makes sense!)
This should be ok for most kitchen suppliers, magnet, Howdens etc, but not ikea (totally unique system)
