What Gauge of Copper do you offer for sinks?
We offer 16 Gauge and 14 Gauge options for sinks.
Why should I do a 14 gauge sink and do I need it?
14 gauge is thicker than 16 gauge. 14 gauge sinks look better (less wavy), are higher quality, and are less susceptible to denting. If you can afford it, yes - it is recommended. It’s an important consideration for sinks exposed to a constant barrage of tools, pans, pots, and cleaning products.
How much thicker / heavier is 14 gauge than 16 gauge?
The smaller the gauge the thicker it is.
|Gauge||Thickness (mm)||Thickness (cm)||Thickness (in)|
Will a 16 gauge sink dent?
Your sink is guaranteed to arrive dent-free. A 16 gauge sink will not necessarily dent, but thicker copper sinks are more durable and less prone to denting and deformation.
Does a heavier gauge help the sink be quieter?
You will notice that a heavier gauge will be quieter. The thicker gauge will sound less “tinny” when running water or placing dishes into the basin.
