Ensure that the mounting surface is clean, level and structurally sound. Mark the location for mounting the glass stand offs.

  • Drill holes:

    Use a suitable electric drill to drill holes in the marked locations. Holes should be sized to meet the specifications provided by the  spigots manufacturer.

  • Final Check:

    Verify that all connections are secure and the glass panel is solid. Carry out a final check to ensure the installation meets safety standards and design requirements.
