Modern Kitchen For A New Life!

Elkay has expanded its Crosstown sink line with five new models. All five models are made from premium 18-gauge 304 stainless steel and feature Sound Guard undercoating to dampen sounds and reduce condensation. They also feature 15-mm. corners providing the maximum workspace and the latest in easy-to-clean contemporary kitchen design, and come in top, undermount and dual mounts. Specific model highlights: Model ECTRUD31199 features the innovative new Water Deck, a lowered faucet deck designed to keep water in the sink and not flowing onto countertops. This model also features the largest front-to-back bowl size available in Elkay’s Crosstown sink collection. Models ECTRUFA32179 and ECTSRA33229 feature the Aqua Divide system that maximizes in-sink workspace. The divider stops halfway up the bowl, which opens up the top half of the sink into one large bowl that allows for pots and pans to sit flat in one side while the handles, no matter how long, clear the divide. It also accommodates larger baking and sheet pans. Model ECTRUFA32179 features apron-front design. Model ECTRU35179 features a 35-by-17-by-9-in. single bowl that delivers on market trends for extra-large capacity and workspace. Model ECTRU21179 offers a unique, mid-range bowl suited for urban kitchens with smaller cabinet space.
