The present invention relates to improvements be
formed by combining the sections A, B and C
in sinks and draining boards, particularly for in different combinations with'at least one sec.
domestic use.
tion B always forming a part of the combination.
The object of the invention is to provide means
instance from a stock of one size of draining 5
whereby integral metal sinks and draining boards ‘ For
boards, C, one size of sink B and a stock of ?llets
may be readily constructed to cover a compara
tively large range of choice in types and over
all sizes in a particularly cheap and convenient
manner.
-
.
According to the invention there is provided
10 a method of constructing different types of in-~
tegral metal sink and draining board units to suit
individual requirements which comprises form
ing a plurality of different parts so as to conform
to a predetermined standard, for example, ?llet
15 members, sinks and draining boards arranging
at least one ?llet member or draining board, at
least one sink, and a draining board, with the
edges thereof disposed so as to engage or par
20
tially interlock with each other and welding to
gether the edges of the selected combination from
the standard parts so as to form a complete unit.
By employing this method oiimanufa'cturing
the complete unit, it is possible to build up a large
range of styles or types with many different over
all sizes from the same comparatively few ‘stock
_ parts and it will be appreciated that by this means
a large saving in cost of material, machinery and
manufacture may be achieved, as there is no ne
'50 cessity to manufacture each type or size of inte
gral unit by a special operation, which must ne
cessitate either a large amount of manual work
involving large production costs, or the use of a
A, six combinations at leastmay be built up. If
in addition to a standard ?llet three di?erent
sizes of sink and three different sizes of drain
ing boards are kept in stock, over two hundred
di?erent types of sink units may be manufactured.
In anyone series the dimensions of the sinks B
and draining boards C from front to back there
of will of necessity be the same, but the length
thereof can be arranged so that they will all be 5
different. In addition to the above types of units
additional features such as an apron, drawers,
legs, cupboards and the like may be added and
it will be appreciated that with these additions
the number of different types of sink units which 20
may be constructed from a small number of stock
parts becomes very large.
_.
The section B comprising the sink is formed
with portions of the ?llet on the front and back
edges thereof while the section C comprising the 25
‘draining board is formed with portions of the
?llet disposed around three sides thereof.
By '
this means irrespective of the combination of the
sections A, B and C which may be employed a
_
complete ?llet will extend continuously around 30
the whole of the edge of the sink unit.
Referring particularly to the construction il
lustrated in Figure 1, the ?llet which completely
surrounds the sink unit is formed in four dif

As illustrated most clearly in section B of
The invention will be hereinafter more partic
Figure 1 the ?llet is of substantially rectangular 40
ularly described with reference to the accompany
ing drawing, in which:-—
‘Figure 1 illustrates a draining board, sink and
?llet arranged in position for assembly;
Figure 2 illustrates a method of assembling two
sinks adjacent to one another;
Figure 3 illustrates in detail‘ the ?ller strip’

Figure 4 illustrates in side elevation a combined
sink and draining board provided with an apron
50 and drawer, and
Figure 5 illustrates a sectional end elevation
on the line 5-5 of Figure 4.
‘
'
Referring to the drawing, a sink unit is built
up of a ?llet member or draining board, at least
one sink and a draining board.
_
'
In the embodiment illustrated in Figure'l of
the drawing, the sink unit is arranged to bebuilt
up of one ?llet member, one sink and a draining
- heard, these portions of the unit being designated
60 ".g", “B” and “C” respectively. It will be appre
section being arranged to form a partially en
closed channel around the edge of the unit. The
?llet is formed with a vertical wall 4 extending
upwardly and integrally from the upper edge
of the sink 2 or the surface of the draining board 45
C and with a horizontal wall 5 extending from
the upper edge of the vertical wall 6. Depend
ing from the free edge of the horizontal wall 5
is a second vertical wall 6 arranged parallel
to the wall 5 and extending inwardly from the 50
lower edge of the wall 6 is a further horizontal
wall ‘i arranged parallel to the wall 5 but out of
engagement with the wall 4 whereby the ?llet
only partially encloses a space of substantially
rectangular section. In the section A which forms 55
a portion of the‘ ?llet, the wall It is curved at
the ends thereof to conform with the rounded
corners of the sink 2. Furthermore, the ends
of the section A are partially cut away so that '
the upper surface of the ?llet at the positions 30
a

where the curved ends of 'the wall 4 terminate
projects out from the remainder of the surface.
As mentioned above, the corners of the sink 2
are rounded while the vertical wall 4 of the ?lletv
portion D is straight- so that the ‘ends 8 of
the wall 4 do not form a continuation of the
vertical wall of the sink 2 but are disposed sub
stantially tangential ‘to the rounded corners
thereof. When the section A is brought into en
10 gagement with the corresponding edge of the
sink 2 the vertical wall 41of the ?llet A ?ts ac
curately over the edge of the sink 2, the rounded
ends thereof conforming with the rounded
corners of the sink. In addition the ends 8 of
15 the ?llet portions D of the sink 2 ?t into rectangu
lar recesses cut in the ends of the section A so‘
that the section A of the ?llet joins up with the
sink 2 in such a manner that the section A is
continuous with the portions D of the ?llet.
Furthermore, the projecting portions of the sec
' tion A interlock with the edge of the sink so
that when the two sections of the unit are seam
welded together a very satisfactory joint is ob
tained.
25
The edge of the draining board C which en
gages with the edge of the sink 2 remote from the
?llet A is shaped to conform to the edge of the
sink. The edge of the board projects beyond the
ends of the ?llet portion E and consequently when
30 the edges of the sink and draining board are
brought together they interlock in the same man
ner as the sections vA and D thus allowing a satis
factory seam weld to be effected.
Figure 2 illustrates a method of constructing 'a
35 modi?cation where more than one sink is em
ployed. The sinks 9 and ID are of identical con
struction with the sink portion B illustrated in
Figure 1 and are arranged to be secured together
.by seam welding the ends of the ?llet portions D,
40 D on the front and back edges thereof and seam
welding a ?ller strip ll shown more clearly in
Figure 3 to the adjacent side edges of the two
sinks;
-
'
By this means it is possible to provide a unit
including two sinks in close proximity to each
other and separated by a narrow metal strip dis
posed slightly below the upper surface of the
?llets.
Figures 4 and 5 illustrate a combined sink and
50 draining board similar in construction to that
shown in Figure 1 and in addition provided with
an apron l2 and a drawer l3.

the unit by bending over at right angles a small
the under side of the ?llet. The ?llet although
integral with the sections associated therewith
will comprise four separate portions A, D, E, D
60 hereinbefore described which are seam welded
together. The drawer I3 is added to the unit
by welding the drawer frame M to the underside
of the draining board. Alternatively, the drawer
frame may be welded to the apron which is in

is provided with guide members at each ‘side
thereof which are arranged to slide in corre
sponding grooves provided in the drawer frame
70 M. It will be appreciated that instead of one
drawer two or more drawers may be provided par
ticularly if a draining board is provided at each
side of the sink.
_‘
'
If required a splash back may be readily pro
75 vided by welding the said back to the rear edge
or ?llet of the sink and drainingboard. A fur
ther modi?ed form which may also be con
structed consists of a combined sink and drain
ing board supported on legs.
The legs which
may be formed of tubular metal are welded to
the under sides of the draining board and sink
at convenient positions. ‘Instead of the drawer
frame l4 illustrated in Figures 4 and 5, cup
boards, racks or shelves may be suspended from
the unit by welding these to the under side of
the draining board or to an apron and may be
employed for accommodating kitchen utensils
such as brushes, bowls and the like which are
necessary at a sink.
The method of constructing the units in ac
cordance with the present invention makes it
possible to manufacture the units much more
cheaply than would be the case if the units were
manufacturedfrom single pieces of sheet metal.
As, mentioned above the saving in cost is to a 20
large extent due to the fact that there is no
necessity to employ a large amount of machinery,
but there is also saving in cost as the metal em
ployed is much cheaper than the metal which
would have to be employed if a unit of great 25
length was made from a single piece of metal.
For instance to make a unit with one sink and
two draining boards, the sheet metal area in
volved would be such that it would be necessary
to employ specially rolled metal of high quality 30
at an extra cost per pound while if the same
sink is built up from'smaller sheet metal areas
by the method hereinbefore described, a cheaper
pricelper pound for the same quality metal pre
vails- which can moreover be more economically 35
used with less wastage to achieve equally satis
factory results.‘
