Using a solid surface trough sink can add a practical and aesthetically pleasing look to your washroom space. A trough sink provides the opportunity for communal handwashing, so they can save space and time by allowing people to wash their hands quickly and with ample space to access the basin.
Our sinks featuring solid surface trough designs offer a bigger space to wash your hands and assist in limiting water splashes, which makes them simpler to clean. A solid-surface substance is a man-made material, such as Corian, that can mimic materials such as granite or marble at a lower cost and is easier to work with.
