Zero-radius stainless steel sinks were the first "square sinks" introduced in the market. They give an elegant modern look. Today 2018, the majority of publications in the kitchen and bath industry publications show variations of these square products. This original Zero Radius unit had sharp square corners. They are made of a flat steel piece. The sides are folded up and welded together.
In addition to the modern look, a major advantage of this method is that the sinks are not drawn like traditional stainless steel sinks, so a seventeen meters are sixteen meters and not thinner because of the stretch. Heavier sinks are not only stronger and more resistant to damage but quieter. Most traditional sinks have many sound cushions to reduce noise. The more sound pillows, the cheaper the sink is because the pillows are necessary to compensate for thinner or cheaper steel.
There are two disadvantages to the Zero Radius sinks. Since the fabricators start with a flat piece of steel, they do not drain well. If the countertop is not dead flat, water may spill into the front, back or sides. Even though they are even, the sinks drop slowly. Many sinks have a crease in the bottom to make them look like they are draining but it is an illusion.
The other disadvantage is that the sharp edges are difficult to clean, especially the lower corners where the sides and bottom meet. A black spot can develop in the corners.
In order to maintain the modern look and eliminate the cleaning problem, the inventive dish car manufacturers developed sinks with small radius corners, usually three inches. These rounded corners make the sink easy to clean and solidify the sink to make it quieter.
The small radius holders are made in the same way and have the same problems with slow drainage and pool if the sink is not flat.
Square Sink shopping list
· Make sure that every stainless steel sink you buy is certified 304 stainless steel. If it is not, it will not match your devices. Smaller steels also age faster and do not retain their luster. Be especially careful if the sinks are free of countertops since most are made of cheaper 301 steel or worse than steel that has not been classified. Some sinker companies use coatings to match the gloss and gloss of 304 but the coatings wear out and you are stuck with a dull sink.
· Make sure the sink is dropped. The nicest sink is not good unless it is dropped.
· Check if 304 stainless steel is certified to fit your appliances
· Who is behind the sink? Internet companies are known for selling a product and not following up the services. Knowing how to clean the sink is crucial, as a high shiny sink may need more maintenance than the old drop-in sinks that were boring.
· Will the washbasin come with a grid set? A grid or grid set is a wire frame placed at the bottom of the sink to prevent the sink from being scratched. Protecting the bottom is important with today's larger and heavier pans. All stainless steel will scratch. The breaks protect the bottom of the sink where most scratches occur.
Recently, the new PerfecFlo ™ flow coil was introduced to the market. It is made of 304 stainless steel, has Drainfast Technology using a patented process and has a team of washbasins and faucets behind the sink.
The sink is made of steel which is pressed before folding and welding so that it drains quickly, has three eights in the corners so that they can be cleaned.
