Stainless Steel Utility Sinks

1) What does “gauge” mean when referring to Stainless Steel Utility Sinks?

Gauge is referring to the thickness of the steel and the lower the number the thicker the steel. Generally 22 gauge is considered the absolute minimum thickness for a service sink. A thickness of 14 to 16 gauge is more common for service sinks because they must be more durable than other types of sinks.

2) Can you clean Stainless Steel Utility Sinks with bleach?

No. Stainless steel sinks can be easily cleaned with a mild soap and warm water. For stubborn cleaning problems use a stainless steel cleaner, stainless steel brush or stainless steel wool.

3) What makes stainless steel “stainless?”

Stainless steel is an alloy of steel, which will rust, and one or more other metals. The other metals give the steel its “stainless” properties and under normal usage stainless steel will not corrode or rust.
