Kraus Undermount stainless steel sinks are designed with your kitchen in mind. Constructed from premium 16 or 18 gauge T-304 stainless steel for maximum durability, the extra-deep basins accommodate large dishes with ease. All Kraus kitchen sinks are equipped with top-level soundproofing, including thick rubber dampening pads. Each sink is additionally treated with protective Stone Guard coating, which reduces condensation and further dampens sound. The corrosion-resistant surface is further protected from rust and oxidation by a meticulous finishing process.
