Industry First Sink Designed to Enhance Kitchen Ergonomics
We are elevating kitchen ergonomics with our new IKON® 33” Apron 1-3/4 Bowl with Low Divide sink. Designed to make prepping, cooking and cleaning a more seamless and comfortable experience for all users, this industry first apron front sink is crafted with our brand’s exclusive SILGRANIT® granite composite patented material available in nine trending colors.
“When you break it down, the sink is the most used area in the kitchen by everyone in the household,” notes Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “By offering optional accessories with design details that include the low divide and apron front, we created a system that not only accommodates all users but enhances the workflow.”
The new IKON sink’s convenient low divide that sits just 5-1/2” from the sink bottom, makes it easier to handle large pots and baking sheets while still dividing the sink into cleaning and prepping bowls. Because apron front designs are installed further forward and eliminate the countertop, they minimize the need to lean over as much and help to reduce strain.
Optional accessories include a Floating Grid that provides an extra level within the sink. The extra level created by the Floating Grid eases the strain of placing a heavy pot into the sink while also creating another space to place a bowl of prepped ingredients. It can also be used as trivet on the countertop for placing hot cookware. A Floating Cutting Board that fits right on top of the sink instantly creates another workspace beyond the countertop while also making it easy to scrape chopped ingredients into a bowl placed below it. Additional accessories for the IKON 33” Apron 1-3/4 Low Divide include Small and Large Grids, a 3-in-1 Basket Strainer and a 3-in-1 Disposal Flange.
“Not only do these sinks enhance comfort, productivity and efficiency with their ergonomic design features, they are also beautiful statement pieces available in a range of on-trend colors constructed with our extraordinarily durable and easy to clean SILGRANIT® material,” says Maicher.
In addition to the 1-3/4 Low Divide, the IKON® series includes 30” and 33” apron single bowls along with a 27” farmhouse option for smaller spaces. Available color options include Anthracite, Biscuit, Café Brown, Cinder, Metallic Gray, Truffle, White and Concrete Gray.
