Stainless Steel Sink Manufacturers Share On-Stage Installation

  • The kitchen's stainless steel sink is divided into three installations on the installation - on the stage, in the Taichung, under the stage. And these three installation methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. So here the Stainless Steel Sink Manufacturers talk about their respective installation methods and some things to be aware of when using the sink in the future.

    1. On-stage installation method
    The installation of the sink on the platform is the simplest of the three installation methods. You only need to open a hole in the kitchen counter, which is bigger than the basin of the sink, and it is smaller than the overall size of the sink, which means that the sink can not be dropped. The general opening size is the length and width of the overall size of the sink minus 30 mm.

    Relatively speaking, the installation on the stage is also flawed. That is easier to accumulate water and collect pollution. Because the sink is placed directly on the countertop of the cabinet, no matter how the sink is designed, it will form a small step with the countertop of the cabinet. After a long time, the sides of the sink are easy to hide. Therefore, it is usually necessary to clean, especially the position around the sink.

    2. Taichung installation method
    The Taichung installation method is also called flat mounting. The finishing effect is to make the side of the sink flush with the countertop of the cabinet. In this way, the side of the sink will not form a step with the table top, so there will be no dirt collection and it is easier to take care of. For the installation of the Taichung basin, the opening is a bit more complicated, because in addition to the normal opening, it is necessary to plan a circle of pits on the countertop, that is, a thickness of the edge of the sinker. Because of this, the sink will be flush with the countertop after it is put down, so the process is slightly more complicated.

    The opening size of the Taichung basin is the same as the opening size of the above counter basin. The length and width of the sink are reduced by 30mm, the same as the 680*460mm size sink, the Taichung basin is installed, the opening size is 650*430mm, and then the size of the sink edge is cut out at the edge of the hole. Because the salary is a bit complicated, cabinet chefs in many areas are not willing to do this because it is indeed a job to consider technology. When the pit is deep, the sink will sink a little. The planer is shallow and the sink will bulge again. In this case, the sink and the table top will form a step, which is not only affected by the aesthetics, but also easy to collect in the future. So when you install this method, you should discuss it with the master to see if you can make this effect perfectly.

    3. Installation method under the stage
    The installation of the under counter basin is easy to care for and easy to clean. This is the main reason why many people install under-counter basins. The installation looks like the entire sink is in the cabinet. The sink in the kitchen is a kitchen utensil that needs to be used frequently. It is also a tricky thing if it is troublesome to take care of.

    The opening of the under counter basin needs to be finished, because it needs to be polished and trimmed after opening the hole to ensure smooth and smooth hand feeling. As for the need to pay more, just look at the meaning of the countertop master. The size of the opening of the under counter basin is also a place to pay attention to. If you follow the conventional method, the length and width can be installed by subtracting 30mm, but the effect is not very good. Because the edge of the sink is not completely covered, the table top and the sink surface form a step. As long as the step is formed, water accumulation and dirt can not be avoided. This is also the so-called half-stage installation method.
