Our four pre-installation tips to ensure your outdoor kitchen is installed flawlessly
26th March, 2021
An outdoor kitchen is the perfect addition to your backyard to help you entertain guests as you cook and grill. It should match your overall home aesthetic and add to its value so you can achieve a luxurious outdoor lifestyle.
AlfrescoPlus™ has tips you can follow to help you flawlessly install your own outdoor kitchen.
1.Protect from elements
When planning the installation of your outdoor kitchen, you should make sure that there is a way to protect the cabinets and BBQ from the elements. This keeps your outdoor kitchen in optimal condition and prolongs its longevity.
2.Conform to State and Australian standards
For a smooth installation process, your outdoor kitchen area should be up to State and Australian standards. This includes ensuring that your outdoor kitchen will have sufficient natural ventilation, and that there is enough distance between combustible surfaces.
For an alfresco area to be considered outdoors, it must:
have no more than 2 parallel walls with a covered roof; or,
have no more than 2 walls at right angles with a covered roof; or,
have no more than 3 walls with the one open side being at least 25% of the total perimeter.
Otherwise, the area will be considered an ‘enclosed’ space and additional requirements will have to be met.
If you want to run your own BBQ on LPG, all BBQ modules come with vented cabinets that comply to Australian standards for LPG cylinder storage and use. There are also vents in the fridge modules to allow plenty of air ventilation around your bar fridge. The AlfrescoPlusTM patented Air Frame system, included with every BBQ module, provides a heat proof shield between the BBQ and cabinetry.
4.Discuss your needs with AlfrescoPlus™
