Thermal Shock – temperature change
of greater than 70 degrees F between temperature of sink and water.
All glass sinks are susceptible to thermal shock. To prevent
cracking, set your water heater to an energy saving temperature
between120° and 130°.
Misuse – heavy objects such as steel
or glass (i.e. a heavy perfume bottle) dropped into the sink or any
heavy impact before or after installation may result in breakage.
Improper Installation – over-tightening
of drain assembly, insufficient support of sink or installing any
drain assembly that hold water.
Using a drain that does not seat
Conditions for Concern
Heavy items stored above the sink,
such as a medicine cabinet
New construction where indoor
temperature is unregulated may lead to thermal shock.
Using sink for shaving where the
sink is filled with hot water or running hot water constantly may
also cause thermal shock.
