Inset sinks ( I ) are installed into kitchen worktop, thus forming part of continuous working surface. Sink is inserted from above into a suitable worktop cut-out and fastened with supplied clamps.
Flush mount sinks ( F ) are installed into previously adjusted kitchen worktop made of waterproof material (natural stone, composite material, glass, impregnated solid wood). Surface of the sink and surface of the worktop are in the same level. The main advantage is seamless working surface that enables very easy cleaning and an attractive appearance.
Flat mount sink ( S ) are installed into kitchen worktop so that a uniform working surface is created. Thin, almost unnoticeable rims allow quick and easy cleaning. An additional advantage is simple installation from above into each type of kitchen worktop.
Undermount sinks ( U ) are installed into kitchen worktop from below. Worktop must be made of waterproof material, such as natural stone and composite material. This type of installation enables various combinations of undermount bowls in different sizes. Absence of seams between sink and worktop contributes to simple hygiene maintenance and overall appeal of a kitchen.
Sit-on sinks assume the function of kitchen worktop by replacing it on top of a kitchen cabinet. They either “sit” at the end of a worktop or connect two worktop ends (one on each side). Alveus Sit-on Sinks normally have a rear wall rim of 30 mm, however there are a few versions without it (please see individual sinks description).
The sinks can be installed in combination with standard worktops of 30 mm thickness.
