When using baffle strips these should not be stretched before cutting at the base of the panel, otherwise they spring back up the joints, and are then short.

The recommended distance of the baffle groove from the front panel is 50 mm, which should be increased to 75 mm if an additional drainage groove is provided (Fig.
