A Modern Take on Traditional Farmhouse Sinks,
Now in Stainless Steel from American Standard
Pekoe Apron Front, Single Basin Design Offers More Usable Workspace; Showcases
Unique Sound Buffering and Condensation Absorption Features
ORLANDO, KITCHEN & BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (January 9, 2018) ― Highlighting a
contemporary spin on a classic farmhouse design, the new Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks from
American Standard offer smart features and timeless beauty that coordinate with modern
appliances. Handcrafted from durable, 18-gauge stainless steel – which is naturally stain, heat
and chip-resistant – these new Pekoe farmhouse sinks offer a generously-sized single basin to
accommodate large pots and pans.
Pekoe sinks feature brand-exclusive SoundSecure+
rubber padding on the bottom and sides of the sink,
helping to prevent unwanted noise and vibration. The
sinks’ unique StoneLock insulated undercoating will
absorb sound and minimize condensation underneath
the basin. Expertly designed 10 mm corners simplify
cleaning, while channel grooves at the sink base
provide improved drainage. A convenient stainless
steel protective bottom grid is included for scratch
prevention.
The stainless steel Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks are
finished on three sides to provide installation flexibility.
Featuring durable stainless steel construction
and modern design lines, the new Pekoe
apron front sinks from American Standard
offer an up-to-date twist on a classic
farmhouse design.
Their integrated support at the back of the sink enhances strength and durability. A coordinated
strainer, installation instructions, and cutout template are included with each sink for
convenience.
