INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
Typical installation includes cabinet support preparation, installation of faucet, connection of flexible water
supply lines, attachment of sink to cabinet, sizing and installation of drain, supplies to house water system.
Sink Mounting Provisions – Whether the sink is used for replacement or new installation, the cabinet area
beneath the sink must be reinforced to provide sufficient support.
CABINET SUPPORT PREPARATION
Important Note:
It is recommended that the installation be performed by a professional and shall be in accordance with all
local plumbing and building code requirements.
FLUSH MOUNT or UNDER MOUNT INSTALLATIONS
1 DETERMINE MOUNTING OPTIONS
Determine if the sink will be flush mounted or under mounted. Next measure the actual size of the sink being
installed to determine cabinet opening dimensions and support frame location. (Also reference rough-in for
dimensions.) The cabinet opening should equal the maximum dimensions of the sink to ensure a minimum gap
between the sink apron and the cabinet. Support frame location is determined by type of sink installation being
performed.

2 SUPPORT FRAME
Construct a support frame to fit inside the cabinet opening. Ensure you provide proper clearance for faucet,
water supply lines, drain assembly, garbage disposal mounting system and the structural parts of the cabinet.
Flush Mount Installation Note:
Ensure to install the support frame so that the top rim of the sink, (when placed within the frame), will be level
and flush with the top surface of the countertop, (when countertop is installed). See diagram 2A below.
Under Mount Installation Note:
Ensure to install the support frame so that the top rim of the sink (when placed within the frame) is level and
flush with top surface of the cabinet. (Top of sink rim must be flush and level with top of cabinet in order to obtain
proper contact with the underside of the countertop). See diagram 2B below.

3 SINK INSTALLATION
CAUTION: Sink is heavy. For personal safety, use extra person for assistance with installation.
STEP 1. Carefully set the sink within the support frame and position in center of cabinet opening. If flush mounted
ensure that the sink top rim surface is level and flush with the countertop top surface, (when countertop is installed reference Flush Mount Installation and 2A). If under mounted ensure that the sink top rim is level and flush with
cabinet top surface. Check clearance around sink apron and ensure sink is centered within cabinet opening. Ensure
sink base is making proper contact with support frame. Adjust or shim as needed to obtain proper sink position and
fit. (Reference Under Mount Installation and 2B.)
STEP 2. Carefully remove sink and place a thin layer of sealant around top edge of support frame where the sink
and frame will make contact. Then replace sink back into position. See diagram below.

4A Installing Countertop - Flush Mount Installation
Using carpenters square carefully measure and mark the location of the cutout opening in the countertop.
Flush mount cutout opening is determined from the actual sink size. The cutout opening should equal the
maximum dimensions of the sink to ensure a minimum gap between the sink and the countertop opening.
Note: Check dimensions on first page as a reference and measure the sink being installed.

MAINTENANCE FOR STAINLESS STEEL SINKS:
To keep the original quality of your Stainless Steel Sink, we recommend regular cleaning. Use a mild liquid dish detergent and
water to clean the product after use. Rinse carefully and dry.
PLEASE HAVE THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:
• Do not let water or other liquids dry on the product. Liquids that are left to dry leave a grey build-up stain on the steel.
• Stainless steel can stand hard treatment, but sharp objects can easily scratch the surface. These scratches are more
visible when the product is new. After a period of use these marks will be smoothed out without the product losing it luster.
• Never use scouring powder or steel wool to clean the surface. Apart from the risk of scratches, there is also a risk that rust
stains will attack the steel.
• Avoid Chlorine-based solutions from coming into contact with the stainless steel.
• Silver polish leaves spots that cannot be removed.
• Acidic foods (e.g. juices, salt, mustard, mayonnaise, etc.) must be cleaned up immediately.
DISCOLORATION
More stubborn spots are often caused by impurities in the water or household substances. These can be removed with special
polish agents for stainless steel. Dull spots can become lustrous again if rubbed with chalk on a soft cloth.
