When you think of a kitchen or a laundry room, you usually only think of big items like the kitchen appliances or the washer and dryer. Nevertheless, there is one thing you absolutely must have: a stainless steel utility sink.
Utility stainless steel sinks can be used as janitorial sinks for commercial kitchens or other commercial facilities or as a residential laundry sink.
What are Stainless Steel Utility Sinks?
A slop sink, as it is sometimes called, is an extra deep sink. This allows you to scrub and spray water vigorously without water splashing all over the room.
These sinks can be as shallow as 10 inches but can be as deep as 25 inches. For comparison, regular stainless steel kitchen sinks are usually six to eight inches deep.
These sinks are used for commercial cleaning, laundering, janitorial activities, and kitchen washing, and many others.
There are many kinds of stainless steel utility sinks: free standing or wall mount, single or multiple compartment, drop in or undermount.
