Installation types and instructions
Which way of installing the kitchen sink will fit your kitchen style?
Alveus sinks are suitable for various installation types, thus adjusting completely to the design and architectural requirements of your kitchen.
By kitchen sinks different modes of installation require different installation procedures.
As far as kitchen mixer taps, we advise that kitchen mixer taps are installed by professional installers.
INSTALLATION TYPE: FLUSH MOUNT SINKS (F)
Flush mount sinks (F) are installed into a previously adjusted kitchen worktop made of waterproof material (natural stone, composite material, glass, impregnated solid wood). The surface of the sink and surface of the worktop are in the same level. The main advantage is a seamless working surface that enables very easy cleaning and an attractive appearance.

INSTALLATION TYPE: FLAT MOUNT SINKS (S)
Flat mount sink (S) are installed into the kitchen worktop so that a uniform working surface is created. Thin, almost unnoticeable rims allow quick and easy cleaning. An additional advantage is a simple installation from above into each type of kitchen worktop.
INSTALLATION TYPE: INSET SINKS (I)
Inset sinks (I) are installed into the kitchen worktop, thus forming part of the continuous working surface. The sink is inserted from above into a suitable worktop cut-out and fastened with supplied clamps.
INSTALLATION TYPE: UNDERMOUNT SINKS (U)
Undermount sinks (U) are installed into the 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. The absence of seams between sink and worktop contributes to simple hygiene maintenance and overall appeal of a kitchen.
INSTALLATION TYPE: SIT-ON SINKS
Sit-on sinks assume the function of a 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.
CARE AND CLEANING :
After installation, the kitchen sink should be thoroughly cleaned from all the remains, especially iron drills, because the longer contact of such particles with the wet surface of the sink would cause rusty stains on the surface!
