New Neptune Slim Top sink from Franke is bang on for style, quality and value
The new Neptune Slim-Top sink range from Franke brings together style, quality and value starting with a very competitively priced single bowl model, giving retailers, builders and merchants a keenly priced sink with the assurance of a 50 year guarantee against manufacturing defect. Neptune was launched in May, as part of the 2013 update to the Franke Pro-Value Range.
Neptune is a Slim-Top sink which provides a fashionably low profile perimeter creating the stylish appearance of a flushmount but with the installation ease of an inset. It features a deep recessed drainer detail around the outside with the straight drainer pattern popular in the UK. The deep, welded bowls are practical for use and easy to clean.
Neptune is a precision-made, modern design that will enhance the quality level of a value kitchen.
There are two Neptune Slim-Top models, each manufactured from premium grade stainless steel in Silk finish. Available in one or 1.5 bowl options with the choice of either left or right-handed drainer options, both Neptune sinks fit a standard 600mm cabinet. The single bowl of the Neptune NEX 211 measures 360 x 420 x 200mm and the 1.5 bowls of the Neptune NEX 251 measure 360 x 420 x 200mm and 167 x 306 x 152mm respectively.
Says Jeanette Ward, communications manager for Franke:
"Low profile sinks are set to be the future trend and Neptune is deliberately pitched at making this look more accessible with its competitive pricing, while being high quality. It fits perfectly with the ethos of 'style on a budget' and gives retailers and developers a versatile model for a range of projects."
