Why Stainless Steel is the Material of Choice for Sinks

One of our more common stainless steel installation products for Perth area businesses is the stainless steel sink. We have made countless stainless steel sinks for the restaurant, medical, manufacturing and mining industries. No matter what the industry, stainless steel is the material of choice for sinks for a number of reasons.

Light and Cost-Effective

Stainless steel is a material that is light compared to other sink materials. It is a cost-effective material for fabricating custom stainless steel sinks.

Stainless Steel is the Material of Choice for Sinks

High Quality

Stainless steel is a high quality material for sinks and it is now even better. Design has evolved to a point where stainless steel sinks are thicker and less noisy than their predecessors.


Stainless steel is one of the most durable materials for fabricating sinks. It doesn’t crack, chip, stain or fade. It has a much longer “shelf life” or “product cycle” than other materials and doesn’t degrade like other materials do.

Bigger Capacity

Because of stainless steel’s unique combination of lightness, strength and durability, it is possible to make much larger sinks with stainless steel than with other materials, especially heavy materials like cast-iron or porcelain.

Low Maintenance

Stainless steel is the easiest material to clean when it comes to sinks. Usually, soap and water is enough to keep a stainless steel sink clean and performing as great as it did on the first day it was used.

Easiest to Keep Sanitary

Because stainless steel maintains such consistent surface, it is the easiest material to keep sanitary. Stainless steel is the standard material for many applications in the medical and hospitality fields where perfect sanitation is mandatory.


Stainless steel has a “self-repairing” quality that makes it “immune” to corroding. The chromium layer on the outside reacts to oxygen to “coat” the surface and protect it from rusting or chemicals.
