The faucet in a commercial kitchen gets used significantly more than the standard faucet in your home kitchen or bathroom. Fortunately, a Krowne faucet is not your standard faucet. All of their faucets are specially engineered to hold up to constant use in a commercial kitchen. Krowne specializes in crafting metal into a variety of truly remarkable products, so, not surprisingly, Krowne faucets are made out of quality metals and built to last. Many of the spouts and faucets are made from solid brass and feature a nickel-chromium plating for a polished, shiny surface. This brass construction also gives their faucets incredible strength, and it provides improved protection from corrosion compared to other, more economic materials.
All of Krowne’s faucets are made to accept a pre-rinse unit, which is an important tool you need to have on hand for manual dishwashing. Most of these faucets are also designed with a special valve system to accommodate the high volume of water needed in a commercial kitchen. A special ceramic valve is used to turn the water on and off, instead of a rubber washer, which can lead to leaks and stripped handles on your knob. The ceramic valves ensure that the water continues to turn on and off without drips and without constantly needing to replace a washer. Furthermore, Krowne's these ceramic cartridge valves feature built-in backflow preventers that help eliminate water hammer and other potentially costly plumbing problems.
