Don’t cry over splashed water with our Blade kitchen sink series.

There’s more to our Blade kitchen sink design than its appearance.

The bowls of our Blade kitchen sinks are so close together that you can move a running tap from bowl to bowl without splashing. It only requires a single stone cutout – that leaves the rest of your benchtop intact! Not only does our Blade kitchen sink design look stunning, it simplifies and minimises the cutout and remains splash-free every day.

Traditional double bowl sinks have a 30-40mm “bridge” between bowls. This bridge creates splashing when a running tap is moved from one bowl to the other. Not only is the bridge wide enough that it causes splashing, it is too narrow to cover with stone – flush to the internal bowls – when undermounting because the stone bridge will be too thin and crack.

In order to cover the bridge with a stone top, the width of the bridge is increased to 60-80mm. Not only does the bridge stick out like a sore thumb, material and labour costs become higher as a result of trying to cover the bridge and create a seamless look.

So, we went to work to find a solution for all of this unnecessary hassle and the result was a light bulb moment: “Let’s just butt two bowls together and completely remove the thick bridge!”

 

That sounds simple but in order to turn this idea into a reality, it meant strict attention to detail during handcrafting, tighter manufacturing tolerances and even higher precision welding. The result was the Blade – two large bowls, with a barely visible 2mm divider! The SKS-T1150, SKS-T750 and SKS-KU726 not only look stunning, they simplify and minimise multiple benchtop cutouts. Your bench top remains the highlight feature, with only a single cutout for the sink.

The Blade’s minimalist lines complement rather than complicate, enhancing rather than detracting from your kitchen bench top. The practicality of being able to move a running tap from bowl to bowl without splashing comes with the advantage of less mess for your customer and a streamlined aesthetic in their kitchen.

Although the Blade was originally intended to be an undermount sink, we finished the Tetra rim with a brushed satin finish and the Kubic rim with a silk finish, allowing them to be installed in an abovemount position. The stainless steel rim sits on top of the bench top and has the added bonus of protecting the bench top edge from being chipped by pots and pans, preserving the durability of your new kitchen.

As the first of its kind and a true innovation for the Australian building industry, it was a finalist in the 2016 HIA-CSR Industry Innovation Awards. Our Blade series is protected by the Designs Act 2003, administered by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science – under Registered Design no. 364872.
