Ardous International 1C16X20L18 Sink with Drainboard is made of 16 gauge stainless steel. The sink was welded together ensuring a consistent metal gauge thickness throughout the entire structure. The corners of the tub have coved corners to make sure water and anything else that's meant to stay in, stays in. To keep things looking clean and new the backsplash takes on more of the water splashing decreasing in the growth of mold around the sink. To make installation easier, the backsplash has a tile ledge. The drain in the sink comes with a basket strainer as well for immediate use. The legs are galvanized steel that are adjustable by 1 inch in height. It's polished, reflective surface makes this sink stand out and convenient to use with a drainboard directly beside it.
