#BRISTANBULLETIN: Sink Smarter

8th November 2018

Positive news for the industry this week, as results from the Construction Products Association’s Construction Trade Survey for 2018 Q3 show that 25 per cent of main contractors experienced an increase in activity during the quarter. But, in the face of rising labour, fuel and materials costs, there is undoubtedly still strain on contractors’ profit margins.

Meanwhile, Construction Scotland has launched its new strategy for the next four years, with the aim of becoming more sustainable, productive, innovative and profitable. As we as an industry become increasingly focussed on sustainability issues, it is encouraging to see Government-backed strategies announced in line with this. 

At Bristan, we welcomed Sophie Taylor back to the Bristan Specification team. Following several months gaining experience on the Heritage Bathrooms side of Bristan Group, Sophie returns as Area Specification Manager for East Anglia, North and East London.

The Big Bristan Story: Sink Smarter


Here at Bristan, we’re always innovating and looking to bring new developments to the industry. In line with this, Bristan has officially launched its first ever range of kitchen sinks – this new range has been designed specifically to make life easier for contractors, so what benefits does it offer?

STRAIGHTFORWARD INSTALLATION


The new sinks come with Bristan’s patented Easyfit base already pre-installed along with pre-fitted flexi tails. This means that an Easyfit tap body can be fixed to the sink with minimum fuss – simply hook up the hose tails, push on the tap and tighten the grub screw.

The range continues Bristan’s long-held reputation for products that are convenient for the contractor, cutting installation time and simplifying the fitting process. Every aspect of the installation process has been carefully considered, with everything needed supplied with the sink; even down to the handy full-scale worktop template included with every product in the range.







PEACE OF MIND


There are absolutely no hidden extras or additional costs, with each sink including strainer waste, overflow, pipework and fixings. What’s more, the sinks are backed by a 25-year guarantee, along with a five-year guarantee on the accompanying Easyfit taps, and a three-year guarantee for the pipework.










SIMPLE TO UPGRADE


When it comes to keeping customers happy, the sinks offer easy upgrades to homeowners, as the integral base means that the existing tap body can easily be unscrewed and replaced by another tap from Bristan’s extensive Easyfit range.

And, as a further benefit, the two-piece construction process of creating the sinks offers a more complex design, and allows a wider and deeper bowl for the convenience of the householder.







DESIGN-LED SOLUTION


The sink collection includes these stylish designs: Ingot, Quartz and Index & Inox, but offers 28 variations across eight ranges, with composite quartz and stainless-steel finishes. All sinks are available in 1.5 and 1.0 bowl variants for a sleek look which hides unsightly water marks – providing a quality option for any interior style.

Alongside the sink ranges there is a mix and match option of 63 different Easyfit taps, Bristan will be offering four pre-defined sink and tap bundles for a hassle-free, design-led kitchen solutions.
