Peninsular wall units – How to support them


A question that we were recently asked about Peninsular wall units was, “I’m just looking at planning a kitchen and wondered how your peninsular wall units were fitted, before I put too much pen to paper. Do you have any info as I can’t find any?”

Well, peninsular wall units only usually have the one wall to support them and having 2 or 3 units in a row does create a little problem with regards to how they are supported. But, there is an easy way to do this with a clever frame that is used to support the peninsular wall units.

Frame for peninsular wall units

The peninsular wall unit frame is not something we supply ourselves but you are able to use a frame like the one shown below.

As you can see, the frame attaches to the wall and a tubular steel support that is positioned on the worktop to help take the weight of the peninsular wall units. For additional strength and support, wall unit connecting bolts should be used to attach each unit to the adjacent ones.

      Hi Fiona, unfortunately we are not able to offer a mid height unit, which can hold both a single oven and microwave / combi oven. These would need to be used in separate units, as we would not have the correct doors to fit to a non standard unit.
