Crafting Excellence: Why The Galley Workstation® Is Designed With Stainless Steel

When it comes to kitchen design, durability and versatility stand out as prominent features of a well-crafted kitchen. In a sea of sink options, The Galley Workstation® leads the charge with products created to last a lifetime. Each Workstation is crafted with 16-gauge 316L stainless steel, a high-quality material chosen with intention.

Long-Lasting Strength

While the technical specifics of stainless steel may not ignite excitement, its significance lies in the legacy it creates. The Galley Workstation isn't just another kitchen fixture, it's a product designed to foster connections - where family and friends gather to share meals and memories. Crafted with excellence and sourced for quality, 16-gauge stainless steel is thicker and more durable than the standard 18-gauge steel option most often seen in residential sinks. 316L stainless steel has a lower proportion of carbon in its composition, which makes it more resistant to corrosion. This material is then fully wrapped in SilentArmor™, a sound reduction technology that reduces noise and vibrations by up to 95%. This intentional combination creates the backbone of each Workstation, and the exceptional corrosion resistance and strength ensures longevity for generations to come.

Versatile Design

Stainless steel possesses a minimalist and clean aesthetic that seamlessly integrates into a variety of kitchen designs. From traditional to modern farmhouse, its understated elegance allows any kitchen to shine.

Thanks to its exceptional strength and corrosion resistance, the Workstation is equally suited for installation in outdoor kitchens, solidifying its position as the perfect companion for al fresco dining. Whether it's a laid-back barbecue or an upscale garden party, its durability and functionality shine, elevating any outdoor gathering.

One of the primary drawbacks of traditional sink materials is their susceptibility to environmental wear and tear. Exposed to the elements, fireclay sinks and workstations often succumb to cracking, fading, and discoloration over time. In contrast, stainless steel emerges as a powerhouse, resistant to rust, UV degradation, and temperature extremes. Unlike its counterparts, stainless steel is able to embrace outdoor environments while maintaining its integrity and aesthetics over time.

A Clean Approach

Maintaining a clean and sanitary kitchen environment is essential, and stainless steel excels in this regard. With its non-porous surface, stainless steel resists microbial growth, making it inherently resistant to stains, odors, and bacteria. Unlike porous materials like fireclay or enameled steel, which may harbor germs and require specialized cleaning methods, stainless steel is easy to clean and maintain, requiring only a simple wipe down with gentle soap and water. This simplifies maintenance and ensures peace of mind for discerning chefs and homeowners alike.

As kitchen design continues to evolve, stainless steel remains an excellent and timeless material. From its enduring durability and versatile design, to its hygienic appeal, stainless steel serves as the backbone of The Galley Workstation's legacy.
