The BLANCO SELECT Compact 60/2 for low installation depths
Kitchen cupboard space is at a premium. Waste management systems are often housed in the base cabinet beneath the sink, but here they often have to compete with other installations for space. Base cabinets can get very crowded in buildings with a decentralised hot water supply via a low-pressure boiler, or if flow heaters or filtering systems are installed.
Blanco has designed a new waste system for precisely such eventualities. In a reduced 320 mm model, the Select Compact 60/2 makes the perfect solution for low installation depths, and thus ideally suited to Blanco’s new smart mixer taps. Despite its compact dimensions, the new Select solution offers a generous receptacle … [READ MORE]
Professional kitchen for the home
With Franke’s PureSteel worktops, the professional kitchen finds its way into one’s own four walls. The high-quality stainless steel plates are enormously robust and available in several attractive surface variants.
It is not without reason that stainless steel surfaces are standard in professional kitchens. The material is extremely hard-wearing, absolutely hygienic, easy to clean and insensitive to rapid temperature changes. In addition, stainless steel absorbs no odors and also against discoloration such as tomato sauce, red wine or tea, the material is resistant. In the private kitchen, the individual stainless steel worktop is therefore becoming increasingly popular.
Franke offers high-quality PureSteel worktops in thicknesses of 4, 6 and 8 millimeters and a length of up … [READ MORE]
