In continuous production for more than 35 years, Schock Granite Sinks have made their way to Australia from Germany – bringing all the high-tech engineering for which Germany is renowned.
June 5th, 2017
Since 1956 Abey Australia has consistently set the bar higher and higher for original, authentic and inspired design processes for the full spectrum of bathroom applications. Defining so much of the Australian design market for almost sixty years, this quality supplier with a cross-country presence continues to flourish from strength to strength
With a continually growing portfolio of over 1,200 products, Abey’s range is the staggering result of a 60-year commitment to product development, a focus on innovative approaches to materiality and finishes, coupled with their never-flagging quest for improved quality. With the inclusion of Schock Sinks to the fold, the team at Abey have broadened their offering to the Australian market yet again, pushing beyond the reliance on porcelain and glass, to also offer a collection of granite engineered sinks.
From the last days of the 1970s when Schock first invented the granite sink, to today, Schock’s in-house R+D teams have consistently been perfecting the performance criteria of their engineered granite to ensure that they both repel dirt and odours, as well as maintain an unsurpassed degree of ProHygenic and stain-resistance. Made in Germany for over 35 years by hand, this ongoing commitment to constantly improving both performance and resilience of granite sinks has ensured that more than 80 per cent of the world’s granite sinks – more than 2 million each year –leave their design and production facilities, all carrying the Schock signature: 80 per cent natural quartz, sweeping sleek lines, and blemish-free finishes.
Now available in a vast range of colours and finishes, Schock granite sinks are a flexible design feature appropriate for an equally vast range of design applications. Whether in Metallic or Onyx blacks, Stone greys or Polaris and Alpina whites, new additions for the Australian market include a metallic Bronze, Rouge Red and Concrete and Croma finishes.
The Schock Granite Sink range, supplied exclusively throughout Australia by Abey, is available throughout their showrooms in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
