    Hi everyone. Having a new kitchen fitted soon where we'll be getting an integrated 50/50 fridge freezer.
    Just noticed what I think might be the main gas pipe to the boiler sticking out about 40 mm from the wall, exactly where the fridge freezer will be. If we cut a hole in the cabinet, just a regular 60 deep, 216 tall one, will we be ok? Most fridge freezers seem to be about 545-550 deep, so I think I might be ok. Can anyone offer any advice?
    I've attached a picture.
    Thanks everyone

    Iirc kitchen units generally have a gap behind anyway, some are 50mm. Probably best finding out that first?

    B and Q weren't sure, or the girl designing our kitchen didn't know.
    Hopefully someone on here with a B and Q kitchen might have an idea?
    Our carpenter seemed to think it might be ok, but wasn't 100% sure as he normally does Howdens kitchens.

    Just measured mine:
    Unit depth 570mm
    Back panel not fitted for appliances for ventilation.
    Otherwise service void of 65mm on all base and tall units.

    Tip: assemble units as per instructions, then each top, bottom and fixed shelf screw through the sides with 4 x 40mm Reisser Cutter or similar screws, 4 per edge on base units, 3 on wall units. Makes them solid.
