    Hello,

    1000 x 500 sink.

    Replaced an old plastic synthetic style sink with a stainless steel one.... this has a fault where it is scratching with the slightest knock (not the cheapest either!!) and is going to be getting kicked down the street once the retailer refund the money.

    The worktops are 40mm thick. 600mm deep. The replacement stainless steel sink was installed with a cutout out of 990 x 490 (the standard 10mm as per template).

    The previous plastic synthetic sink had a more oval cutout so in the middle of each straight line there is a slight bowing in of the cutout line if that makes sense - not in the worktop collapsing sense, just the line of the template.

    We’ve now seen a 1000 x 500 granite composite sink we would like to put in in the stainless steels ones place. It says it has a cutout of 980 x 485. Will it be able to support itself at 18kg given the cutout is slightly larger do you think, given that the size of the overall sink dimensions are the same? Is the anything I can / need or should do to give it further support around the cutout?

    Worktop 400 mm deep ? Is that a typo ?
    Your new sink should be fine in 600 w/ top.
