Mechline has launched a Polycarbonate WS1 Wash Hand Basin, to replace stainless steel wash hand basins, which has a lower carbon footprint. Made from high-grade polycarbonate ABS plastic, the basin is available in white and grey, is durable and has an optional splashback.

SaniTru antimicrobial additive, embedded in the basin material itself, resists build-up of mould, mildew and grime to provide a cleaner surface that’s easier to clean and lasts the life of the product. It is manufactured by Mechline in the UK and uses less energy to manufacture than stainless steel.
