Kitchen Sink Materials and Finishes

Abey has a variety of Stainless Steel sink options, including:
● 304 or 316 grade steel in metallic, brushed or satin finishes.
● 316 Marine Grade steel is weather resistant and ideal for alfresco settings.
● PVD ‘Physical Vapor Deposition’ coloured stainless-steel sinks are available in
three different colours: Artisan Copper, Eureka Gold and Black Pearl in our
Schock invented the granite sink in 1979 in Germany, where they are still manufactured. Schock sinks are available in 2 different quartz material styles in an attractive range of colour finishes.
● Cristadur has a unique silky-smooth finish and allows for the waste kits to be accessorised to match tapware choice.
● Cristalite sinks have a more textured feel to the surface.
Chambord French Provincial sinks are the perfect kitchen product which is easy to clean,
insensitive to temperature and perfectly hygienic. The Philippe range is available in either a
white or black glazed ceramic or granite white or black.
There are three types of installations to consider:
Inset sink options can be used for all countertop options, including laminate.
● Rolled edge, found in more traditional sinks
● Laser edge, found in more contemporary sinks.
Undermount sink options are ideal for stone countertop options and offer ease of cleaning the
benchtop. Flushmount sink options are ideal for stone countertop options and offer a seamless
join between the stone and steel of the sink.
Bowl Depth and Drainer Configuration
Some key considerations include:
● What size is your oven? Do you need a larger bowl size to fit baking trays in?
● What is the joinery cabinet? You will need to bowl which fits into this space.
● What is the depth of the countertop? You will need a bow which fits into this space.
Bowl depths vary depending on design and manufacturing process and range between 125mm
to 250mm. Fabricated stainless-steel sinks generally have deeper bowls with a minimum 1mm
Drainer model sinks have the option of either left or right-hand side which is determined by the
dishwasher location, kitchen layout or on consumer preference.
Pressed vs Fabricated Bowls
The manufacturing process of a pressed bowl sink involves the separate pressing of the bowls
and drainers before they are welded together and polished to form a complete product.
Fabricated sinks are more labour intensive/hands-on and involve cutting, folding and welding a
single piece of stainless steel into the design of sink required.
Kitchen Accessories offer purchases the ability to turn their sink into a complete workstation
for the kitchen. They are designed to convert a sink into either a preparation area for cooking or
to improve the washing process in both the kitchen and alfresco areas.
