If you want longevity and durability combined with a sleek modern style, look no further than a granite-made composite sink. Usually a composition of 80% granite, its quality is reflected in the price and is typically one of the most expensive material found in kitchen sinks.
Durability: The composition of 80% hard stone and 20% resin in composite sinks make them both extremely heat resistant (often as high as 500F) and non-porous.In stark contrast to a 100% stone item, the non-porous elements of a composite make it resistant to many liquids except for harsh cleaners (which we’ll get to, later).
Colour: Composite sinks are unique in that, they are predominantly made up of organic materials however, are extremely customizable in colour, enabling them to fit almost any kitchen motif; at Kitchen Fittings Direct, we offer 4 different colours of composite sinks - Cream, White, Grey and Black.
Environmentally Friendly: Unlike slabs of marble and granite, composite sinks are often manufactured without any additional quarrying necessary; in other words, composite sinks allow you to have all of the prestige without any of the footprint associated with hard rock kitchen fittings.
Matching Taps: Each sink has a paired tap which will perfectly match it in style, colour and finish.
Fully Reversible: All of our Schock composite sinks are fully reversible; each sink has two perforated under side indentations for your tap hole - your fitter can punch out the tap hole she/he needs leaving the other one intact; that's one less thing to worry about with your kitchen renovation!
Cost: Composite sinks certainly aren’t cheap - an identical style can be purchased in stainless steel for a fraction of the price. If you’re shopping ona budget, the composite sink may not be for you.
Cleaning: Almost all items have a proverbial Achilles heel, and composite sinks are no different. Harsh cleaners such as bleach and other noxious chemicals will be extremely detrimental to the colour of a sink. A full guide to cleaning a composite sink, can be found here.
