KOHLER, Wis. – April 26, 2011 – Kohler Co. extends its popular Vault thin-rim fabricated stainless steel kitchen sink line with three new functional models: apron front, Smart Divide and entertainment. Vault Apron-Front Stainless Steel Sink
When installed as self-rim, the sink’s ledge is only 1.25 mm thick – about the thickness of a nickel – making the transition from sink to countertop appear seamless. This flush-mount profile also allows debris to be easily swept from the counter, over the rim, and into the sink basins. All Vault stainless steel sinks are constructed from 18-gauge stainless steel, include a bottom-basin rack, and utilize Silent Shield technology to reduces noise and vibration during normal use.
• The apron-front undercounter sinks can be fit for both 30- and 36-inch cabinets, eliminating the need for custom millwork.
• The short 7-inch integrated apron allows the sink to be used in standard cabinetry or retrofitted into existing cabinetry, while the 9-inch-deep basin provides ample space. All that is required is the removal of a false drawer front and simple cut to the cabinet face. No additional trim work or caulking to fill cut lines is necessary.
• The sink offers exceptional value by providing a high-end, fabricated design for less than most competitive apron-front sinks. List price starts at $800 for the 30-inch model.
Vault Smart Divide Stainless Steel Sinks
• As an extension to the popular 2010 launch of the Vault fabricated stainless steel kitchen sinks, Kohler offers the highly functional Smart Divide saddle to this line, including the new apron-front models. Smart Divide is a lowered saddle which creates more clearance between the faucet and the saddle, making it easier to fit large items into basins. It also increases the ability to transfer large pots and pans between basins and minimizes splashing by containing water lower in the basin.
• The new Smart Divide primary sinks (self-rimming or undercounter) measure 33 x 22 inches and are available as a double-equal or offset configuration.
• List price is $775 for both double-equal and offset.
Vault Stainless Steel Entertainment Sink
• The entertainment sink, at 15 x 15 inches, complements the primary kitchen sinks and fits easily within a wide range of cabinet sizes.
• The sink can be mounted as either a self-rimming or undcercounter model with its low-profile
• MSRP is $405.
Vault Stainless Steel Sink Features
• Rear drain locations offer users more flat and functional workspace for storing or washing dishes, handling food or straining/draining water.
