When BLANCO was founded by Heinrich Blanc, way back in 1925, our focus was clear: it was quite simply to be “the best”.
The company has established worldwide acclaim for its unswerving commitment to producing innovative but functional products of the highest quality, and to supporting our products with second-to-none service. This commitment remains the cornerstone of our policy.
At the heart of our philosophy is also concern for the environment and, many years ago, BLANCO set up a department devoted to the development of environmentally-friendly products and production processes.
Initially dedicated to producing products in premium-quality stainless steel, we have since developed various other quality materials, notably the introduction of colour with our SILGRANIT® PuraDur® II composite sink material, and now colour with fine fireclay ceramics.
Today we supply over 120 countries from our Head Office in Germany, the range is constantly updated in response to changing times and needs, and many products have won prestigious international design awards over the years.
BLANCO Waste Systems
Which waste system for my kitchen?
In five steps to the perfect system.
An uncluttered sink, a clean bowl, and a clear worktop are not only nice to have in the kitchen but they also enhance its overall comfort. It’s always good when waste and working materials are cleared away quickly and easily.
Choose a well thought out waste system and a practical organiser drawer for the base cabinet. BLANCO offers a wide range of possibilities for nearly every cabinet size. In order to support you in the planning phase, we have put together the five most important steps to consider when choosing the right waste system for your kitchen.
1. Define the cabinet size
First, there is the question of the cabinet size – 45 cm, 50 cm, 60 cm, or more? Modern waste and organisation systems offer the maximum of flexibility for every space.
2. Note the restrictions
Once the width has been defined, the next step is to assess any structural restrictions. Is there a boiler, or is one being planned? Is there a waste fitting inside the cabinet, and if so, how much space does it take up?
3. Choose the opening mode
Now the opening mode must be decided: Pull-out front or hinged door – automatic or manual?
4. Define the number of bins
The fourth step on the way to the perfect waste or organisation system decides the number of bins. Depending on the choice of waste system, most options can be covered from one to four waste bins.
5. Choose the extras
Finally, it is worth taking a look at the extras offering additional user comfort. These include, for instance, the waste bin integrated in the worktop, a foot-operated pull-out mechanism, and a particularly functional organiser drawer.
