  • The standard template cut-out is oversized, providing flange reveal to allow accessories to fit if required.
  • Undermount installation [installed underneath the worktop and is only compatible with solid surface worktops such as granite or solid wood] Recommended using the sealant between the flange and the worktop to avoid any water ingress.
  • Visual shows flush fit installation.
  • Features and Specification:.
  • Heat and Sound Insulation - the bowl is sound insulated to reduce the sound of the water; rubber insulation pads achieve this under the sink or by a sprayed dynaphon layer applied during manufacture. The grey dynaphon of the spray also insulates, minimising heat escaping from the bowl, keeping water warmer for longer.
  • Cleaning Tips: Discolouration and most marks on stainless steel are caused by water-borne deposits clinging to their surface. They are always the result of an outside source rather than coming from the steel itself. Such stains are often seen as a “rainbow-effect” and can be avoided completely by removing wet cleaning aids [cloths, containers etc.] from the sink after use so as to avoid watermarking and rust stains. One of the best ways to care is to clean it with a product called ‘Shiny Sinks’ [available from most major supermarkets], which can be used daily. It is helpful to dry thoroughly after cleaning.
  • Avoid: The use of plastic bowls for washing up, as these cause heavy localised scratching. Leaving salt, vinegar, citric fruit juices, mustard or pickles on the surface for any length of time as they can cause corrosion. Abrasive cleaners such as bleach, scourers or wire wool pads.
  • Compatible for use with the optional waste disposal unit.
  • Optional Products:.
  • Plumbing Kit.
  • Turbo Plus Accessories.

2 Features Included In This Product Explained

With / Without Overflow

With / Without Overflow

An overflow is a small hole or opening at the upper part of a sink, basin, bidet or tub that drains away water upon reaching its level so that no water is spilt. When a basin or bath does not come with this design feature, it is called “without overflow” and will need a compatible drain.

Stainless Steel Material

Stainless Steel Material

Stainless Steel is an iron alloy with anti-rust and anti-corrosive properties, unlike iron. It contains a minimum of 10.5% of chromium and less than 1.2% of carbon and other metal alloys. Its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties can be improved by adding nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium, or manganese. This robust, hygienic, hard-wearing base material is popular in the construction of steel products.

From : Bromsgrove Overall Rating: Date: July 2, 2016 There are sinks and there are sinks !
The quality of this sink is amazing. Not only the finish of the product but everything has been thought through very carefully. The packaging, template provided and instructions are excellent. On top of this the additional fitting parts like the waste, overflow and drainer plugs are of the highest quality and fast simple and compliment the sink perfectly for a leak free excellent finish. This was not a cheap sink and you could wonder why pay the extra but it is worth every penny and once it is installed you can tell the difference and it will last for years to come. We bought a Franke Wave tap to go with the sink and once again this matches perfectly and is of equally high quality and worth every penny too.

From : Forres Overall Rating: Date: October 1, 2015 A great sink.
I bought this sink as it could be fitted into a granite worktop which I had chosen for my new kitchen. The sink is very good quality and also looks good. It has been installed now for 18 months and has had a lot of use and still looks like new. It was very good value and I am really pleased with my choice. I find having the half bowl very handy for draining rice, vegetables etc.

marion Asked :

Is this undermount sink suitable with a Quartz work surface? Please advise.

Answered By QS Team Answered by the QS Technical Team

If the worktop is solid quartz (i.e. not a layer of quartz on top of laminate), then an undermount sink will be suitable for mounting to this.
