Our stainless steel tables are always custom-made. This means that the accessories our tables are fitted with can be freely chosen to suit the intended use. The frame is made of 30×30 mm stainless steel pipe, and the leg pipes are equipped with adjustment pads to facilitate the levelling of the table. The tabletops are equipped with a standard washstand or straight (‘AT’) edging. The tabletops are also available with raised rear edges of different heights. A moisture-resistant chipboard or a GST board will be glued as a support plate under the tabletop.
The space surrounding the sink should also be considered when the sinks are chosen. If the table is to be equipped with a mixer, enough room must be left for it; for example, a 600-mm wide table can accommodate a 400-mm sink in the depth direction of the tabletop.
By special order, we will also prepare openings for a hob unit or waste hole; column notching can also be provided upon request. The rear edge will be raised according to the intended use as specified in the order. A cover plate can be provided in front of the sink, and the corners of the table can be rounded where requested.
The frame units are also available custom-made in special dimensions. The cabinet and the drawer can also be equipped with a drawer lock where requested. Please contact our salespersons for further information on designing special equipment and fixtures.
Before placing your order, it is advisable to check the dimensions of the equipment or fixture (length x width x height), as well as the number and size of sinks and their location on the tabletop. The shelves, cabinets and drawers to be fitted into the frame should also be checked before the order is placed.
The hole for the mixer will be made at the factory as requested.
Stainless steel equipment and fixtures must be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent them from rusting. A water wash is often sufficient for cleaning a stainless steel surface; hot water and steam can be used in special cases.
Impurities and deposits that have adhered to the surface can be removed by rubbing them with an emery cloth, for example. NOTE! The emery cloth must be non-ferrous. It is advisable to first try the treatment on a less noticeable part of the product.
Standard cleaning powders or power detergents such as soda, borax or sodium perborate can be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
Alkaline solutions, such as soda, ammonia and diluted soda lye, can be used for dissolving grease. Acetone, petrol, alcohol and similar organic solvents can also be used for removing grease deposits or other water-insoluble matter.
Detergents that contain sulphuric or hydrochloric acid may not be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
The sterilising agents used for disinfection often contain sodium hypochlorite or potassium hypochlorite. However, these substances are dangerous to stainless steel as they easily give rise to pitting corrosion. Other disinfectants that contain chlorine, such as chloramines, are also dangerous. The most affordable disinfectant that is suitable for stainless steel is nitric acid; even mild concentration solutions have a bactericidal effect.
TREATMENT AFTER CLEANING
The detergent must be carefully cleaned from the steel surface. Rinsing with plenty of water is usually sufficient for this purpose. If acidic detergents are used, a pre-rinse should be carried out with a neutralising solution, such as soda.
The user must always ensure that the room concerned is sufficiently ventilated, proper protective gear is used and any in-house occupational heath and safety instructions are complied with.
