Fitting a gas hob can be trickier than fitting a normal gas cooker. A gas hob has certain space requirements needed in order for it to be installed. For example, a minimum of 750mm clearance is required above a gas hob to a cooker hood. Any units that are fitted to the walls either side of a hood must be at least 366mm above.
