Multi bowl hand wash basins

Flat bed hand wash basin specifications

Flat bed multi bowl hand wash basins are used most often in the food industry.  They are easy to clean and their sole function is for washing hands, that is why they are so shallow. Two models are available, FB18 with three washing bays and FB24 with four washing bays.  Since it is used for the food industry, hands free washing systems are quite often installed.

The units include a 50mm deep trough like basin with 40mm waste outlets and 100 mm apron all round.

Tap options:

  • Infra red: deck mounted taps (CO-EL1000 or SC-SL021700699) for either cold water only or pre-mixed water with LX-TV-22CXC thermostatic anti-scald mixer.
  • Wall mounted knee operated: C-KV metered valve and M-DSP-180 or Walcro SSP/15 deck mounted spout.
  • Metered taps: Walcro WC-420 (Set at an angle) or Walcro 100R pillar tap (Holes must be 22mm diameter minimum for taps)
  • Wall mounted metered concealed Walcro 155UW with W-GWS/15 wall mounted spout.

Customization options:

The flat bed hand was basin is highly customizable. popular options are shortened base to accept only one or two hand wash bays. Integral splashback made from stainless steel up to 500 mm high (higher splashbacks are not effective since splashing is usually below 500 mm).  The width (from where you stand to the wall) can also be shortened if space is a problem. Although we can make the flat bed hand wash basin deeper it defies the purpose of the basin.  If you are looking for a deeper basin, rather look at wash troughs that might be cheaper and more effective.

If hands free equipment is installed on the splashback, it must be higher than 500mm for comfortable operation.

Stratos STR02 and STR03 Specifications

Stratos STR02 double multi bowl and STR03 triple bowl hand wash basins. The Stratos range of basins are manufactured from Grade 304 (18/10) Stainless Steel. The distinguishing factor of these basins is the 3mm thick stainless steel sheet top.  This makes the Stratos range so suitable for industrial and commercial use.  The bowls are also made from polished stainless steel with a thickness of 1.2 mm.  The Stratos bowl size is 360 mm in diameter and 150 mm deep using a standard basin waste outlet of 40 mm.

The Stratos range is designed to be wall mounted and the unit has a 3mm stainless steel bracket for reinforcement. Bolts supplied by installer.

Depending on application, the most common tap mixers used are Infra Red actuated mixers or self closing taps.  This reduces the risk of someone leaving the tap on and wasting water.  Wall mounted taps can also be installed above the Stratos STR02 or STRO3 basin, just make sure that the spout extends more than 120 mm out of the wall otherwise the top of the basin will always be wet due to splashing. In any commercial situation this will reduce the hygiene of the washing room.
