One of the key features of Corian® sinks is that they are non-porous, so when properly cleaned, they promote a hygienic environment that is critical to patient care.
Wilmington, Del. (PRWEB) June 30, 2016
DuPont™ Corian® has renewed and expanded its range of ready-made sinks for commercial and residential spaces, now offering 35 sinks in its comprehensive North American product line. The expanded collection includes new shapes and sizes that are versatile, durable and easy to care for, while also offering the contemporary designs, innovative technical features, and colors that make Corian® a popular choice for architects and designers around the world.
The new collection of Corian® kitchen sinks includes 18 sinks in six families: Neat (six models), Simplicity (three models), Smooth (two models), Precision (one model), Efficiency (two models) and Bold (four models). The bathroom collection includes 14 sinks in three families: Accessible (nine models), Chic (three models) and Care (two models for the healthcare market).
Five new introductions designed for the commercial market include a round sink that is perfect for dental procedure rooms, a baby bath for neonatal hospital settings, an ADA-compliant rectangular sink, and two square sinks of different dimensions – each with offset drain placement to minimize splash from standing drain contents. The new sink offerings are also ideal for multi-family and single-family residences, as well as corporate, educational or hospitality facilities.
“One of the key features of Corian® sinks is that they are non-porous, so when properly cleaned, they promote a hygienic environment that is critical to patient care,” said Susan Homan, Global Segment Leader – Healthcare.
The commercial shapes are brought to life through the See Your Designs Take Shape design guide, in which the full spectrum of Corian® sinks and shapes are grouped into user-friendly collections for easy specification. Those collections include: Accessible – a full range of ADA-compliant sinks and lavatories; Care – shapes that add functionality to healthcare environments; and Neat – small sinks which add a simple and refined design statement to commercial settings.
The residential marketplace receives five new sink shapes of its own, including small and large U-shaped rectangles, a flat-bottom U-shape sink, a double-bowl sink and a large single sink. As with all Corian® sinks, the new offerings can be seamlessly integrated into Corian® or Zodiaq® quartz surface countertop material to create sleek contemporary looks.
“We took the best of globally inspired trends and are introducing them to the North American market as part of our goal to enable the design inspirations of residential designers and consumers,” said Katie Congress, residential segment manager.
The complete residential offering is introduced through the Portraits of Life kitchen and bath look book, which showcases new collections named Chic, Bold, and Smooth. They act as seamlessly integrated centerpieces to nine different inspiring design styles, including mid-century modern, country refresh, industrial loft and modern retro.
