Kohler`s undermount kitchen sink (3356 NA) is 18-gauge stainless steel, with left/right bowl depths of 9 1/2 and 7 1/2 inches, respectively. Kohler`s SilentShield Plus sound absorbing material helps mute the rattle you get with stainless steel sinks. Exterior size is 35 1/8 x 20 1/8 inches.
Potential Problems: The main problem with an undermount sink in laminate is strength. Since the rim of the sink sits flush with the bottom of the laminate, the strength of the laminate is also an issue. If the laminate is weak, it will crack or bend if the sink`s bond with the particle board is ever broken. If additional weight is placed in the sink or the particle board becomes saturated with water, the bond may weaken and the sink might sag. When the sink sags, it pulls down on the edge of the counter along the installation area causing damage to the countertop. Proper maintenance of plumbing fixtures around the sink prevent this from happening.
Franke`s beautiful undermount kitchen sink offering, the RGX-160, is luminous stainless steel in standard 18-gauge metal. This sink requires a minimum cabinet width of 33 inches. The bowls are 9 1/16 and 6 7/8 inches deep.
