Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:07:35 AM
Faucets can be divided into single handle and double handles and also can be divided into single type, double type and triple type according to their structure. Double type faucets can be connected to hot and cold wires at the same time and usually used in bathroom vessels and kitchen faucets with hot water. Triple type faucets can not only connect to the hot and cold wires but also can connect to the showers, and usually used in the faucets of bathtub. The body of faucets usually refer to the tubes which were usually made of bronze but has been replaced by brass. Copper contents of the high grade faucets is usually higher that 85%. Body of import faucets usually has no stomata, but the faucets made in our country lack of pressure, wear and corrosion resistance because of the lag of the price and technology and the limitation of surface frost process.
There are many kitchen sink materials to choose from, including stainless-steel, enameled cast iron, fireclay, quartz silicate and solid surface. A high-quality, 18-gauge stainless-steel sink will take a lot of abuse. Enameled cast iron has endless options for shiny colors. Solid surface or quartz silicate is better at resisting scratches. Solid fireclay is just as durable, but limited in regard to color choices.
Usually, stone kitchen sinks are carved out of one solid piece, either farmhouse style or small round prep sinks. The front of a farmhouse sink can be left in its rough, natural state or it can be polished and even carved. The other option is a boxy sink fabricated from granite or other slabs — the best choice if you want to match your chosen countertop. Regardless of the design, though, your cabinets will require some extra reinforcement to support a stone sink, says Joe Percoco of Percoco Marble and Tile in Denver, Colo. He strongly recommends that the sink cabinet be reinforced to hold the extra weight, which can total more than 300 pounds. Joe says that one of their block sinks can require "four guys to get it into place." Make sure your cabinets have similar strength.
