Inspired by experience, Franke celebrates its centenary in style
Franke, said to be the world's largest manufacturer of kitchen sinks, is 100 years old - and, with a reputation for being at the forefront of research and development in the kitchen industry, the company is celebrating with the new state-of-the art Centinox sink, along with two stunning taps and innovative accessories.
The Centinox sink encompasses all the elegance, style and precision engineering expected from Franke, such as the new 'Slim-Top' inset sink edge which gives the appearance of a fashionable undermount sink. Its profiled edge incorporates a lip into which practical, innovative tiered accessories fit and slide... designed to slide within the sink are the stylish Rollamat, stainless steel strainer bowl and two-sided stainless steel/synthetic chopping board. A mobile drainer is also available as an optional extra.
The 12.5mm deep drawn radii represent what Franke says is a new standard in sink technology and the sink features a round 3.5" Basket Strainer Waste - capable of adaptation to take a Franke Turbo Waste Disposal Unit - and Hygienic Overflow.
The new Centinox range also includes two new state-of-the-art taps; the Olympus Spring in chrome with a pull-out nozzle, and the Pisa in Chrome or SilkSteel. Both taps are part of the Portfolio 55 collection which sets a precedent - a five-year guarantee for both finish and parts.
