Washing hands is important for removing and preventing the spread of germs in any private or public environment – this is where wash troughs provide a suitable solution…
Having the right facilities is essential in sanitary environments such as commercial kitchens, hospitals, vets, and any other food preparation or medical facility where hygiene is a top priority. Stainless steel trough sinks are also ideal for schools, colleges and universities where there are likely to be a number of people using the facility at once, as it allows many people to wash their hands at the same time – saving time and increasing throughput.
At The Sanitaryware Supplies Company, we offer a range of stainless steel wash troughs, in addition to surgeons scrub troughs and stainless steel wall mount sinks – ideal for many public and commercial environments.
Stainless steel sanitaryware products are becoming increasingly popular for their design and modern look. They offer a sleek, shiny looking alternative to a traditional ceramic sink and are sure to look great in any washroom.
For commercial washrooms, stainless steel is the ideal material as it remains looking its best due to its easy to clean properties – sure to impress your employees and/or visitors.
You can customise the look of your space even more by opting for bespoke fabrication, meaning we can create made to measure stainless steel trough sinks which fit your room perfectly and can be made to the style and requirements of your choice.
Installing a trough sink could save you money in various different ways, making them a cost-effective alternative to other products.
First of all, having a communal trough installed will cost less than separate sinks. The reason for this is that to have separate sinks for each individual user, you would need to buy several products rather than just one, and install each one as an individual unit. With a trough sink, you can accommodate more than one user at the same time. This removes the need to buy lots of individual sinks for handwashing, and have each one individually plumbed in as you only need one stainless steel trough sink. Stainless steel is also readily available as it is 100% recyclable.
Installation would also cost more when buying several separate sinks as waste fittings, traps, and waste pipe connections would be needed for each sink, whereas a trough only requires one of each.
As well as saving money, a stainless steel wash trough could save time. Before we even come to using the application, there is time saved during the installation process as only one sink needs to be installed compared to five or six regular sized, individual sinks.
During usage, hand wash troughs allow multiple people to wash their hands at once, reducing the time that users may have to wait to access a sink. As they are much more spacious than normal sinks, they allow more room for more people to wash their hands at once.
Stainless steel is a commonly used material for commercial and industrial washrooms due to its resistant properties. By opting for this material, you will have much longer lasting applications which are resistant to rusting, chipping and scratching.
Choosing stainless steel troughs is an investment which will last for years to come, saving you money and time as you won’t need to keep replacing your washroom fixtures every few years due to wear and tear which you may get with other materials.
Regular basins and sinks are usually made of cast iron and porcelain or some other form of china. While porcelain is less porous than other materials like clay, it still gathers bacteria and algae. This can lead to the growth of mould and can make sinks difficult to clean (and time consuming if you have many).
Stainless steel is a non-porous material, so it is much easier to clean and maintain a trough than it is a normal basin. While you could be scrubbing away at a porcelain sinks for hours with all sorts of cleaning products, all you’d need to clean a stainless steel wash trough is a cloth and warm water. No need for the use of harmful substances such as bleach. The natural shine of the material also makes troughs look cleaner and more sanitary.
Hand wash troughs are perfect for public bathrooms in places like camp and caravan sites. The resistant and hard-waring nature of the material means that it can survive outdoors in all weather without sustaining damage, even in the cold months of winter.
A stainless steel wall mount sink is also good for restaurant kitchens, medical facilities and any other place which requires a strong, sturdy sink which can be used by multiple people.
