1.5mm Premium Thickness
Steel thickness plays an important part to the quality, durability and sound absorption of the sink.
The thicker the steel used to make the sink it means you get more sink. The reason why it’s important is because it becomes a sturdier and more solid sink, you’ll notice it when you start putting pots and pans down.
Precision Made Sinks
Our Precision Handmade sinks means that there are people actually welding the sink together instead of a machine just pressing on a sheet of metal. It means that the each corner is carefully crafted and that each wall of the sink is a true 1.5mm thick stainless steel instead of a sheet of metal being stretched by a large machine press into shape.
The inset sink style (also known as overmount sinks or known as topmount sinks) are the most popular, we have designed our sinks to have an easy to install clip that holds the sink down to the benchtop whether you've decided to use a stone benchtop, laminate benchtop or timber benchtop you want to make sure you use our easy to use pull-down clips. Both our stainless steel single bowl inset sink and double inset sinks are available.
Our sinks are also designed to be an undermount sink, either undermount single bowl or undermount double bowl this is a more costly exercise and we always recommend that you plan your sink a lot earlier than usual because it is better to provide the sink to the cabinet maker so that there are no mistakes when doing the sink cut out. Make sure if you're designing your kitchen around the benchtop that you look for an undermount sink without a taphole because it is more elegant and having the tap sit on the bench makes for a better feel.
Another style that people like to use is the flush mount style, but make sure you have a conversation with your stonemason before deciding because it's very hard to get right and might end up as a costly activity, but if you're able to pull it off nothing can beat the style. Either single bowl sinks or double bowl sinks will work for a flushmount, but we'd avoid putting in a drainboard for a flushmount style.
We have multiple styles of single bowl sinks, double bowl sinks, and drainer sinks with a drainboard if you'd like to read more about sink configurations you can visit our article: which kitchen sink style is right for you. If you're going to be a lot of cooking a preparation then consider a double bowl sink.
