Introducing The Shaws Whitehall Sink
The Shaws of Darwen craftsmen have been hard at work to bring our customers the new Whitehall sink specifically manufactured for use with laminate worktops.
The uniquely styled Whitehall is a deep, generous sink, which has been created for customers wanting a fireclay, farmhouse style sink that works perfectly with laminate worktops. This clever design gives the appearance of a Butler from the front and protects the cut edges of the laminate from water by using a subtle lip on all exposed sides.
Designed for easy installation, the Whitehall can be installed using a standard Belfast sink base cabinet, which means that no bespoke cabinetry is required! The sink also carries the Shaws logo and comes complete with our lifetime guarantee.
The Whitehall sink is available in both white and biscuit finishes, has stylish slim side walls for a contemporary appearance, with no compromise to construction quality plus a hardwearing, durable glaze designed for years of usage.
Our sinks have been tested by an independent laboratory for an evaluation of antimicrobial performance. The testing was conducted using the ISO 22196/JIS Z 2891:2000 test method to international standards and all samples proved to be 'antibacterial'. Shaws glaze reduced bacterial colonies of E-Coli and MRSA by 99.99% over a 24 hour period and were classified as excellent in this area.
Other tests regularly carried out include: Determination of Chemical Resistance (BS 3402: 1969) and Determination of Resistance to Staining and Burning (BS 3402: 1969). In these tests Shaws sinks proved to be completely stainless and resistant to aggressive alkalis, acids and bleach.
