Installation of a built-in sink

Anleitungen: Montage & Installation

A built-in sink is one that sits on the worktop. These usually have built-in drainers, as shown below.


You need:

  1. Fastening clips

  2. Sealing tape

  3. Jigsaw

  4. screwdriver

  5. pencil


Here's how you do it:

  1. Put the sink upside down in the desired place on the worktop.

  2. Trace the outlines with a pencil.

  3. Paint another line, about 10mm inside the outline. Now cut a hole in the countertop along this inner line.

  4. Glue the sealing tape along the bottom of the sink. Be careful not to wrinkle it.

  5. Now attach the clips to the sink in a horizontal position.

  6. These anchor clips are for worktops with a thickness of 30-40mm. If your worktop is thinner, you can clamp wooden wedges in between to secure it.

  7. After you've put a fastening clip on each corner of the sink (or on 4 opposite sides in the case of a round sink), place the rest evenly around the sink.

  8. Now tighten the screws of the clips with the screwdriver to anchor the sink in place.

  9. Note: if the overflow hits the countertop, you can simply swap the thick gasket for silicone (this can happen if you have a thicker countertop).
