Stainless Steel Sinks for Domestic Purposes

IS Standard : IS 13983:1994

Domestic stainless steel sinks are essential components of contemporary kitchens and bathrooms, appreciated for their svelte, hygienic, and long-lasting qualities. Premium stainless steel, which is renowned for its strength, resistance to corrosion, and simplicity of maintenance, is used in the construction of these sinks. Stainless steel has a non-porous surface that is resistant to stains and bacterial development, making it a sanitary material to use for cleaning and preparing food. The lifetime of stainless steel sinks is one of its main benefits. They are long-lasting, visually beautiful, and resistant to chipping, cracking, and rusting from regular usage. The slick, clean surface makes regular upkeep easier since stains and residues are easily wiped off.

The technical specifications for stainless steel sinks meant for home use are outlined in IS 13983:1994. Sinks made of stainless steel are guaranteed to be produced in accordance with IS 13983:1994's strict quality and safety requirements. The design, manufacture, and material specifications for stainless steel sinks are outlined in this standard. Manufacturers can fulfill these regulatory standards and guarantee that their goods are safe for use with potable water by adhering to IS 13983:1994.

Note: In order to manufacture stainless steel sinks for residential use, manufacturers must get the mandatory ISI Mark Certification.

To guarantee that domestic stainless steel sinks meet the strict safety standards and technical requirements established by the BIS, ISI Certification is a necessary step that ultimately protects customers and enhances product dependability in kitchen settings. In addition to ensuring adherence to accepted technical standards, this certification helps customers rest easy knowing that the sinks they use on a daily basis are dependable, robust, and secure. The industry's commitment to manufacturing kitchen fixtures that satisfy the strictest quality and safety requirements is reaffirmed, boosting confidence in stainless steel sinks as necessary and trustworthy fittings for contemporary homes.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
