Stainless Steel or Ceramic Hand Basins
Britex has a wide range of stainless steel hand basins as well as ceramic basins. Stainless steel basins are used commonly for commercial applications and kitchens. A steel hand basin is made from a steel sheet that is drawn over a die, and deep hand basins are created by welding. The advantage of a steel sink is that it doesn’t get damaged by cold or hot objects which are common in kitchens. They can also bear impacts from heavy or pointed objects. However, because they are made from thin materials and steel is a metal, they tend to be noisier. These basins are elegant, durable and can be cleaned easily.
Ceramic bathroom basins are quite popular for domestic applications as well as some commercial projects such as hotels or restaurant bathrooms. They are resistant to cold and hot objects just like stainless steel, but they can be damaged by sharp objects and can be broken by hard impact. They are easy to clean and come in different shapes, sizes and colours.
Quick tips on cleaning and maintaining washroom basins
Stainless steel hand basins need to be routinely cleaned to maintain its appearance. First, you need to rinse the basin completely to remove soap residue and then use a soft abrasive cleaner. Once cleaned, rinse again in hot water to remove germs and dry completely by wiping down with a dry towel or cloth to prevent water spots. You can also buff up the surface with oil.
Ceramic hand basins require regular care to keep it looking new and clean. To remove surface stains, use a grease cutting liquid detergent and wipe away with a slightly abrasive sponge. Then use a mix of hot water and vinegar in the 3:1 ratio and soak the basin in this solution. This will loosen the build-up. Then scrub with detergent and vinegar water and finally rinse.
