A long-term contract from Leisure Sinks
Leisure Sinks, the UK's biggest manufacturer of domestic stainless steel sinks, is renowned for its wide product offering. One of the most popular ranges in its portfolio is the Contract, a sit-on sink which is available in a variety of bowl and drainer configurations - including two BSI Kitemark approved designs.
There are five models available (LC42, LC105, LN105, LC106 and LN106), each made from 18/10 stainless steel. All sinks have two 31mm tap holes suitable for pillar or deck mixer taps, as well as a satin bowl and bright drainer. Plus, all Contract sinks boast a 10-year warranty.
Audited to the highest manufacturing standards and quality management systems, two Contract sinks (LN105 and LN106) have been awarded the BSI Kitemark in recognition of their high specification and quality of manufacture. These sinks have square fronts and are made from high grade 0.9 gauge stainless steel, with main bowl sizes of 420mm x 350mm x 180mm and 420mm x 400mm x 180mm respectively.
As with all sinks bearing the Kitemark, both the LN105 and LN106 meet the exacting criteria set out by several international standards, including ISO 14001, signifying excellent environmental management systems, and ISO 9001, which recognises fully integrated quality management systems.
The remaining three models in the Contract range are manufactured from 0.6 gauge stainless steel. The LC106 has a main bowl size of 420mm x 400mm x 160mm, while the other two models measure 420mm x 350mm x 160mm. The LC42 has a 42" minimum base unit in line with historic local authority specifications, while all other Contract models have base units measuring 1,000mm. The LC105 and LC106 are available with either a square or roll front, whereas the LC42 is square front only.
All Contract sinks have the option of left or right-handed drainers, while a stainless steel draining basket is also available.
Speaking about the sit-on sinks, John Peter, trade sales director at Leisure Sinks, comments: "Contract sinks benefit from the same stainless steel construction that all our products are renowned for - which means they also share the high levels of quality synonymous with the Leisure Sinks brand.
"This is further highlighted by two models in the range having been awarded the BSI Kitemark. As a result, Contract sinks are ideal for specifiers, contractors, housing associations and local authorities looking for durable, good-looking products that will stand the test of time."
All Leisure Sinks products are regularly tested by independent inspectors to guarantee that they are manufactured to the highest standards.
