INS TALLATION IN STR UCT ION S
APRON STYLE UNDERMOUNT SINKS Stainless Steel
These instructions are for installing Blanco stainless steel Apron style undermount sinks. If you are
installing another type of sink, such as a standard Undermount or Drop-In sink, please refer to instructions
specifically for those sinks.
Templates are supplied only as a guide. The physical use of the sink will ensure a more accurate
cutout.
These installation instructions are for solid surface countertop materials. For information on installations in
granite, marble, stone or butcher block countertops, contact your fabricator. For information on installation
in ceramic tile countertops, contact your tile contractor.
Note: It is recommended that all countertops be cut by an approved or certified installer and that
the sinks be installed by the installer whenever possible. The countertop/sink unit ideally should be
installed as one on the jobsite.
Before installing the sink, inspect it for damage. Do not install a damaged unit.
Remember, it is your responsibility to follow all local plumbing and building codes.
The warranty will be voided if these installation instructions are not followed.
