Caroline Evans Asked :Is the size of the waste hole in the smaller bowl suitable for a waste disposal unit to be fitted?
Answered By QS Team :
Food waste disposer cannot be used in the smaller half bowl of this sink due to the smaller waste.
Vikki Forrester Asked :I am hoping to purchase this sink for my new kitchen. My fitter has raised a question about the installation, however. We have a standard cabinet but because this is an undermount sink he claims we will need to change the cabinet to one similar to one for a Belfast sink. He claims this sink will need support that wouldn't normally be there from a 'normal' cabinet. As he is unsure, I said I would email. Please could you advise? Thanks
Answered By QS Team :
This sink requires minimum 600mm base unit, (denotes the measurement which the bowl need to fit into) and is suitable for installation in any solid or granite work surface.
Answered By Nicky :
Standard unit is all you need, reposition the shelf directly beneath the sink, this will support the sink, simple fixing blocks under the shelf is all that is needed, or you could screw straight through the from the sides of the unit. Mine is installed under a Quartz/granite work surface, if this is the case with yours the person installing the surface will install the sink. The sink comes with fixing brackets, we didn't use these as the shelf supported the sink. If your work surface is wood/Formica then you could use the brackets and don't bother with the shelf. Before putting the work surface on a clear mastic bead is run around the top of the sink to seal it. Attached is a photo showing my installed sink, Best wishes Steve

Hi Unfortunately I am unable to send you a couple of photos of how it looks through this site because it will not allow them to be downsized below 3MB. If you send me your e-mail address I will reply separately with photos of my set up which I can downsize. The sink will need a support. Mine is supported by a shelf.
Answered By Ashley :
Hi, I initially thought the same as your fitter. I fixed 2 battens (front to back) on the side panels of my cabinet and fitted two cross battens on top of the first ones, ie like an airing cupboard. The sink sits nicely on these battens which I just trimmed down to get 3mm clearance between the sink and the worktop. Some fixings were supplied but needed drilling into the worktop. My granite worktop guys refused to accept any responsibility if they drilled the top hence the battens. Hope that helps
