Are Fireclay Sinks Durable?
Modern Glazing Technology and the Solid Fireclay Make for a Strong Finish
Fireclay sinks are sometimes confused with porcelain or ceramic, and this leads to misconceptions about its durability. Genuine fireclay is much stronger than either porcelain or ceramic as it is a reinforced clay. Pre-fired clay is crushed and mixed in with wet, natural clay that is poured into sink moulds. Each sink is uniquely handcrafted using time-tested techniques over three hundred years old. Moreover, all our brands offer guarantees of the quality of their product.
Advanced Glazing Techniques create a durable and non-porous finish on the already solid fireclay. Because it’s non-porous, nothing you put into the sink penetrates the surface. This means your fireclay sink is odour and stain resistant, having antibacterial qualities that make it hypoallergenic. It is also chemical resistant and safe to use in science labs and schools.
Fireclay sinks are also heat and impact resistant, reducing the risk of chips, scratches, and cracking. When you combine a durable material, like fireclay, with the best glazes available, the result a sink that is resistant to a range of potential hazards.
