All our sinks can be installed in the most traditional way, above the worktop (top-mount or drop-in installation),
or they can be installed under the worktop (under-mount).
The under-mount installation kit comes bundled with specific under-mount sinks (ONE and CUBE) and with model AM8620ST.
For all other models, the under-mount installation kit is available as an optional accessory (code GANCIST10).
STANDARD INSTALLATION (Top-mount or Drop-in)
Putty seal or silicone (1) should be placed carefully onto the upper surface of the counter, on the edge of the cutout. Carefully lower the sink into the cutout and into the seal. Fasten the mounting brackets (4) to the sink as shown, using the screws provided. Then tighten the mounting bracket with a screwdriver, making sure that the sink is pulled down towards the counter top and compresses the seal (1). Watch our video tutorial for more details.
Standard installation tutorial:
The pictures show three typical under-mount installation ways:
A – ZERO REVEAL
The countertop meets the edge of the sink, fitting flush with the sink bowls. The bowls edge is flush with the worktop hole.
(Recommended by our company)
B – NEGATIVE REVEAL
The countertop extends over the edges of the bowls on all sides. The bowls edge is under the worktop.
C – POSITIVE REVEAL
The countertop edge sits back from the edge of the bowls exposing the sink rim. The bowls edge is visible.
Worktop holes cutout drawings in PDF and DWG format can bed downloaded from each sink page.
Series ONE/CUBE and ELEGANCE/AMANDA can be supplied for flush-mount installation on demand. The pictures show the work on the whole sink perimeter, in order to get a 15° tilt angle.
CORRECT PROCEDURE TO DRILL THE SINK
Plados-Telma sinks are provided with pre-punched holes (picture A) placed on both sides in order to choose where to place the mixer tap and the suitable accessories.
In order to avoid any possible damage to the sink, we strictly recommend to drill these pre-punched holes using 35-37mm diamond coated drills following the procedure shown in pictures B and C. On request Plados-Telma supplies either the complete drilling kit (code KITFRESA) composed by the drill plus the joint, or just the drill (code FRESA). Drills are long lasting as they are diamond coated. See pictures D and E.
The following accessories are bundled with the sink:
- Ø90 mm (3”1/2) stainless steel drain (as in the picture)
- Space saving pipe siphon for dishwasher / washer
- Hook clamps
All our sinks are individually packed in sturdy cardboard boxes. The most delicate parts are of the basin are protected by special reinforcements.
