A Shaws sink is made from fireclay, a dense clay that transforms into an immensely durable ceramic when fired at high temperature.
This makes it much heavier than other ceramic sinks. Our largest sinks are around 80kg – roughly the weight of an average man in the UK. So they need careful handling, and the cabinetry needs to be capable of supporting the weight.
If you are fitting the sink yourself, we have prepared a short video that explains how to prepare and fit an apron-fronted sink. Remember that taps and accessories should generally be fitted prior to the sink, as access is more difficult afterwards. The same is true of sink overflow kits – most Shaws sinks have overflows, and these cannot be installed after the sink is fitted.
