Our tops are manufactured with straight (‘AT’) or standard washstand edging. As a standard delivery, a moisture-resistant 18 mm chipboard is glued under the top.
The tops can be provided with a 60 mm raised rear edge, for example, which prevents splashed water and other fluids from trickling between the top and the wall. The standard height of the top front edge is 30 mm, but they are also available with a higher edge subject to a special order.
Openings for a mixer, hob unit and waste hole will also be provided upon request. Column notching and rounding of corners can also be provided where requested.
When placing your order, please indicate the dimensions of the top: length x width x front edge height. We also need to be informed of any notching and openings that need to provided as well as of the number and size of sinks and their location in the sink top.
Our sink tops come with drain valves and overflow holes as standard. Water seals will be provided subject to a separate order.
Stainless steel equipment and fixtures must be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent them from rusting. A water wash is often sufficient for cleaning a stainless steel surface; hot water and steam can be used in special cases.
Impurities and deposits that have adhered to the surface can be removed by rubbing them with an emery cloth, for example. NOTE! The emery cloth must be non-ferrous. It is advisable to first try the treatment on a less noticeable part of the product.
Standard cleaning powders or power detergents such as soda, borax or sodium perborate can be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
Alkaline solutions, such as soda, ammonia and diluted soda lye, can be used for dissolving grease. Acetone, petrol, alcohol and similar organic solvents can also be used for removing grease deposits or other water-insoluble matter.
Detergents that contain sulphuric or hydrochloric acid may not be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
The sterilising agents used for disinfection often contain sodium hypochlorite or potassium hypochlorite. However, these substances are dangerous to stainless steel as they easily give rise to pitting corrosion. Other disinfectants that contain chlorine, such as chloramines, are also dangerous. The most affordable disinfectant that is suitable for stainless steel is nitric acid; even mild concentration solutions have a bactericidal effect.
Treatment after cleaning
The detergent must be carefully cleaned from the steel surface. Rinsing with plenty of water is usually sufficient for this purpose. If acidic detergents are used, a pre-rinse should be carried out with a neutralising solution, such as soda.
The user must always ensure that the room concerned is sufficiently ventilated, proper protective gear is used and any in-house occupational heath and safety instructions are complied with.
