Inset Sinks for Laboratories
Stainless steel is the mandatory material for sinks in many laboratories, especially where sterility is vital.
Even where there is no ruling as to sink composition, we have found our stainless-steel inset sinks to be tougher and more corrosion-resistant than the equivalent sinks in epoxy resin – which have been known to crack when exposed to liquid nitrogen, for example.
Our high-quality steel is also exceedingly durable, lasting for decades – making it the cost-effective option for your laboratory.
All of our inset sinks are fabricated in our workshop from premium-quality, laboratory-grade (316) steel, which is impact- and stain-resistant and can withstand corrosive chemicals as well as high temperatures.
Our bespoke set-up allows us to produce the precise size and shape of sink you need, to fit your laboratory requirements. This means that you can specify the exact placement of drainage and overflow holes – or opt to have no overflow hole, for a clean-room environment. Waste options include:
- standard waste and overflow kit with plug assembly;
- un-slotted waste with upstand strainer waste and overflow tube;
- acid-resistant polypropylene waste and overflow kit;
- acid-resistant un-slotted polypropylene waste with upstand waste and overflow tube.
We can also adjust tap placement for larger sink bowls, adding a side ledge to maximise usable space within the bowl.
All of our inset sinks are designed for easy installation into a bench top of any material. However, to take advantage of the full antibacterial advantages of the steel, we recommend welding into a stainless-steel bench top, thus avoiding obvious joins in which germs can gather. Stainless steel is the only material which allows this super-hygienic, seamless finish. Please take a look at our range of worktops – all as customisable as our inset sink units. We also fabricate fume cupboard liners, splashbacks, sink bowls, hand-wash basins, shower trays, cupboards and shelves, trolleys and tables. Feel free to browse our range of products on this site, or simply get in touch with us, to discuss your project. Even if you don’t see what you need here, we can fabricate most products to our clients’ specifications.
Inset Sinks for Healthcare
Thanks to its inbuilt antibacterial properties, stainless steel is the prescribed material for sinks in many healthcare environments, where sterility is vital.
Meeting all current Health & Safety and Food Hygiene regulations, the steel’s smooth surface is easy to clean, low-maintenance, heat- and impact-resistant, and extremely durable. The sheer longevity of the material makes it the economically-sound choice for your project.
Because all of our sink bowls are fabricated in our workshop by skilled engineers, we can produce the exact size and shape of unit to fit your clinic, surgery, care home or dental practice. This bespoke service allows you to specify:
- precise siting of waste and overflow (for sterile environments, we can produce a unit without overflow);
- exact configuration of waste units; several options are available, including overflow tubes and acid-resistant polypropylene waste;
- size and shape of sink bowl, including whether you require box-style or curved ‘radius’ corners;
- positioning of tap ledge and holes – including side ledge, if preferred, to maximise bowl size.
Our inset sinks are supplied with integral clips, for easy fitting to a cut-out in a worktop composed of any material. For maximum hygiene efficacy, consider having a sink integrated into one of our premium-quality worktops, which are also available in a choice of 304 food-grade and 316 laboratory-grade steel. The fully-welded end-product boasts a seamless surface, leaving no joins in which bacteria can breed. No other material offers this high-hygiene finish. Our range of bespoke steel products includes many other options for your healthcare setting – from shower trays, security sinks, hand-wash basins and splashbacks to cupboards and shelves.

Inset Sinks for Nurseries, Schools, Colleges and Universities
Whether you are outfitting a food technology room, a school kitchen, a laboratory or a childcare centre, you need a sink that will last for years and will stand up to even the most demanding of environments.
Our premium-quality, stainless-steel inset sinks are made from food-grade steel, which meets all current Health & Safety and Food Hygiene regulations – making it particularly suitable for use in an educational establishment or kitchen. This tough metal is also resistant to extremes of heat, making it the ideal choice for most environments. For laboratories, we recommend our ‘316’, laboratory-grade steel sinks, which also offer high resistance to corrosive chemicals.
All of our inset sinks are bespoke, created by our engineers to our customers’ specifications. This means that we can produce any size or shape of sink, for your fitters to slot neatly into a cut-out in any work surface. The sink unit features integral clips, making it for straightforward to secure to the worktop.
Our workshop flexibility allows you to specify all aspects of your inset sink unit, such as:
- size and shape of both sink bowl and finished unit;
- box-shape or curved ‘radius’ corners;
- exact position of tap ledge and hole/s;
- exact siting of waste and overflow holes (for a clean-room environment, we can omit the overflow hole, if required);
- where vandalism is a concern, or small children are present, we can fabricate a security sink unit, whereby a plinth fixed beneath the sink unit prevents access.
We can also incorporate the inset sink into a larger design scheme, such as a stainless-steel worktop, whereby the sink will be fully welded to the work surface, dispensing with visible joins where bacteria and dust can accumulate. No other worktop material allows this seamless finish, which is vital in a high-hygiene area, such as a laboratory or areas where food is prepared.
As well as inset sinks and worktops, we offer splashbacks, shower trays, trolleys and tables, cupboards and shelves. We can create whatever stainless-steel products you need to furnish your project – get in touch today, to discuss your requirements.

Inset Sinks for Veterinary Practices
