Integrated, inset or underbuild sink unitsYour choice of sink unit is partly determined by the worktop you choose. This is because it is impossible to integrate every type of sink unit into any worktop. The sink unit can be fitted using three methods: integrated, inset or underbuild.
Integrated sink unit
An integrated sink unit is mounted flush with the worktop so that the edge of the integrated sink forms a whole with the worktop. The worktop and the edge of the sink unit fit together seamlessly, which makes the worktop easy to clean. The top of the sink unit lies flush with the top of the worktop and has the advantage of being both hygienic and sleek.
Integrated sink units are primarily fitted using HPL multiplex, granite, wood or composite materials. Reginox has a diverse range of integrated sink units.
Underbuild sink unitsUnderbuild sink units are mounted underneath the worktop or at mid level. This increases the usable surface of the worktop. This method of fitting is primarily used for granite, wooden and completely plastic worktops. As the underbuild sink unit is fitted below the level of the worktop it makes it easier to keep the worktop clean.
Inset sink unitsInset sink units are mounted on top of the worktop. This means that the edge of the sink unit sits above the worktop. An inset sink unit is generally fitted on plastic worktops using clamping plate as a support material. Reginox also has an extensive range of excellent quality inset sink units. The beautifully finished edges of the inset sink unit are typical of Reginox craftsmanship. A seal is fitted underneath the flange of the inset sink unit to prevent water from getting underneath and dripping into the kitchen unit.
