INSTALLATION

video & technical drawings
Installing the Quva system is easy but requires drilling in your kitchen countertop. Therefor we recommend to have this done by a qualified technician. After drilling a 102 mm hole it is a simple 6 step installation that requires nothing more than two hands and a screwdriver. No additional drilling or screwing necessary!
Quva allows two installation methods. The surface mounting method is easiest as it only requires drilling a 102 mm hole in the kitchen countertop.  With the flush mounting method the metal rim is sunken/flush with your kitchen countertop. This looks great but requires drilling and milling.

Quva does not have an installation service.

The surface mounting method is the easiest. The metal rim is positioned on top of your kitchen countertop. This method only required drilling a 102mm hole in the kitchen countertop.  With the flush mounting method the brushed metal rim is sunken/flush with your kitchen countertop.  To prepare your countertop for placement of your Quva, drilling and milling is required. It is more laborious and will required a skilled professional.
