Surgical Sinks

Surgical Sinks Designed to Promote Sanitary Conditions


Surgical sinks are medical grade sinks made of stainless steel and designed to promote contamination control while offering durable service. The sinks are easy to maintain, have a long life, and come in many different configurations to fit the needs of facilities.


Three Top Features: Size, Shape, and Compartments


Stainless steel surgical sinks have three primary features:


  • Size – Sizes range from the compact scrub sink to the wide multi-compartment sink with drain boards
  • Shape – The shapes include rectangular with one or more compartments, wide bowl, and oval bowl
  • Compartments – Most surgical sinks have one to four compartments


The additional features to consider are:


  • Type of sink – rectangular compartment sinks, lavatory sinks, and scrub sinks
  • Number of drain boards
  • Type of backsplash
  • Bowl depth
  • Number of faucet holes
  • Access for water line hookups – back, underneath, or front
  • Water valve operation – by hand or knee operated


Used in Medical and Commercial Facilities


Space saving designs make surgical sinks practical additions to any facility that is concerned about controlling bacteria growth. Stainless steel medical sinks work exceptionally well anywhere sinks get frequent use and where maintaining the highest level of sanitation is important.


The contamination control features are features like the following:


  • Stainless steel is easy to clean and sanitize
  • Minimal seams or seamless construction
  • Hemming on the backsplash and edge rolls
  • Integrated features like self-draining soap dish, eliminating need for germ collecting items
  • Sloping bottom surfaces to minimize splashing
  • Parts easy to remove for sterilization
  • Water valves with internal check stops


Practical Uses in Medical and Commercial Facilities


Typical medical and commercial facilities installing surgical sinks include hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, laboratories, educational facilities, veterinary clinics, airports, restaurants, shopping centers, and train and bus stations. The list goes on with day care centers, jails, beauty shops, and anywhere else where people get services that can lead to medical issues if equipment is not kept bacteria-free.
