The 911 sink from MR Direct is a classic example of superior craftsmanship. It makes an artistic statement in any kitchen by flaunting its hand-hammered texture. Besides being an apron or farmhouse-style sink, the 911 has a number of distinctive features. It is constructed from 99% pure mined copper and its appearance will change over time as oxidation slowly produces a surface coating known as a patina. This effect is usually a major incentive for purchasing a copper sink, therefore MR Direct does not use any lacquers or waxes which could temporarily retard it. Sound-dampening pads on the underside of the sink keep noise to a minimum. Additionally, the front facade of the 911 exhibits a dramatic organic filigree pattern and its dual-bowl format features a smaller, shallow basin to the right of its large bowl. Overall, the 911 measurement is 33-1/4 in. x 22-1/4 in. x 9-7/8 in. and will require a custom apron-style cabinet. 1 matching, pure copper strainer is included to prevent waste from falling into the plumbing below; and 1 copper flange, for use with a garbage disposal, includes a stopper to plug the sink when necessary.
