The Helio Basin is an extraordinary piece of wood engineering. This vessel is constructed and turned from solid teak and is designed to stand on a flat countertop. The vessel is held in position by the drain and a brass lock nut.
The vessels come with a standard 1 1/4" PresFlo drain (self actuated for a sink without an overflow); compatible with standard basin p-traps.
Teak is perfect for the precision work of making baths and sinks because of its unique combination of great durability and stability. In wet environments, where the timber must behave predictably, teak is the king.
Teak grows in the mixed deciduous forests of South Asia and is not a tropical rain forest tree. It is also found in plantations across the world. All our finely crafted sinks and baths use teak from Myanmar that is harvested in an environmentally sustainable way.
Our teak sinks and baths are treated with Timbertect Plus. This is an epoxy resin sealant which sinks into the wood and fuses with it, forming an exceptionally tough layer that will not absorb stains. These sinks are easy to clean with standard non-abrasive bathroom and kitchen cleaners. Products containing bleach should be avoided as they may lighten the wood unevenly. Further information on care and maintenance is provided with the product.
