Zeon Sink FAQ
Zeon Sink FAQ
WHY ZEON SINKS?
Whether you are building new or renovating, a Zeon sink is the perfect way to modernise your area with a timeless sink for your kitchen, laundry or outdoor area. These sinks are handmade from durable and corrosion resistant 304 grade stainless steel. Zeon have designed and manufactured their sinks to suit Australian Standards and conditions being able to tolerate extreme heat and cold. They can be used for outdoor use making it perfect for an external BBQ setting. The sinks are able to be over-mounted, under-mounted or flush-mounted. The exterior of the sinks have sound paddings on each side to minimise noise and vibration. The exterior is also dipped into a special paint coating that prevents the sink from accumulating condensation on the underside external walls. All Zeon sinks have a X-shaped fall to a centre waste for better drainage and allows versatility with the orientation of your sink.
What is sink gauge?
The sink gauge refers to the thickness of the steel sheet that the sink is made from. In Australia the most common sink thickness is 1.2mm (18 gauge) and 1.5mm (16 gauge). BuildMat do not recommend 1.0mm thick sinks as they are often flimsy. Sinks also come in 2.0mm thickness, however for domestic applications this is overkill and can be cumbersome to work with. At BuildMat we stock 1.5mm sinks with rounded internals, this ensures a sturdy product whilst embodying seamless edging not only for a sleek design but also for practicality with drainage and cleaning.
What is SS304?
Stainless Steel is an alloy meaning it is made from a composition of metals. In Australia, for domestic use Stainless Steel 304 or a higher grade must be used. BuildMat do not recommend purchasing sinks not meeting this grading such as SS201 as it affects the hygiene and longevity of the sink. Stainless Steel 304 has what is termed as a ’18-8’ composition meaning it has a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Combined with a maximum carbon contact of 0.08% these metals are important for corrosion resistance to prevent rusting.
How do I find the capacity of the sink in litres?
Firstly, you need to find the m3 of the sink and to do this you use the internal dimensions of the sink (that is excluding the lip). For example if the sink is 460x450x250mm then the m3 is 0.46 x 0.45 x 0.25 = 0.046m3. Now you need to multiply by 1000 to get the litres so this sink can hold 46 litres of water.
