PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 2, 2018) ― Highlighting a contemporary spin on a classic farmhouse design, the new Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks from American Standard, part of LIXIL, maker of pioneering water and housing products, offer smart features and timeless beauty that coordinate with modern appliances. Handcrafted from durable, 18-gauge stainless steel ― which is naturally stain, heat and chip-resistant ― the new Pekoe kitchen sinks offer a generously-sized single basin to accommodate large pots and pans.
Pekoe sinks feature brand-exclusive SoundSecure+ rubber padding on the bottom and sides of the sink, helping to prevent unwanted noise and vibration. Additionally, the sinks’ unique StoneLock insulated undercoating further helps to absorb sound and minimize condensation underneath the basin. Expertly designed 10 mm rounded corners simplify cleaning, while channel grooves at the sink base provide improved drainage.
The stainless steel Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks ― available in 30- and 33-inch sizes ― are finished on three sides to provide installation flexibility. The integrated support at the back of the sink enhances strength and durability. A coordinated strainer, installation instructions, cutout template, and stainless steel protective bottom grid are included with each sink for convenience.
List prices range from $725 to $750. The new Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks are available at kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide.
