How to install Formica LifeSeal Worktops – Fixing your LifeSeal Worktop in place

Now that your worktops are prepared and sealed you can get to work installing them onto the top of your cupboards.

Start by drilling holes through the fixing rails of the cupboard carcass or cupboard itself. Once the worktop is screwed in these rails will keep your worktop fitted securely in place.

Pick up and turn over your worktop, so that it is the right way around, and place it on top pf the cupboard – check that the sink unit is in place, and align it with the wall and corner. Then, while holding the top firm in position, secure it with screws through the fixing rails underneath.

Once you have made sure it is correctly in place, you can do the same with the rest of your FORMICA worktops. Where there are corners, use a t-joint to cover the gap between the two surfaces. You can seal the gap between the worktop and the wall with silicon.

Place silicon all along the worktop, where it touches the wall. Smooth it out and remove any excess to make sure that it looks neat and tidy. Try to make a clean line with the silicon. Any excess silicon can be removed with thinners.

Lastly, give your PG Bison FORMICA LifeSeal worktop a clean with a good kitchen cleaner. Now your new worktop is ready to be put to the test.

Here are a few care tips for making your FORMICA worktop look better for longer:

  • Try not to cut or slice food directly on the counter surface
  • Wipe up any spillages as soon as possible
  • Place hot objects on a cutting board
