The Kerasan Canterbury Fireclay Sink range is made under strict conditions associated with handcrafted ceramic products in Civita Castellana Italy, just north of Rome…  It is made from fireclay which is a natural material.  The combination of the material & the manufacturing process means that the product is subject to irregularities with surface variations, defined, by distinguishing ripples, dimples & surface blemishes which are characteristic traits of each and every individual sink and is furthermore considered an indication of its quality adding to its natural beauty, with warmth and personality in proudly being a part of any kitchen. 

You may find that with unexposed areas of the sink, i.e. non-functional areas such as the underside of the sink which sits onto the cabinet or on the rear outward facing wall (on some models are unglazed), there may-be some fine rifts that may appear to be fractures in the material. 

These as they are not faults but instead are fixed non-invasive cosmetic rifts that have absolutely no adverse effect on the performance of the sink itself. 

These rifts will not increase or decrease in size over time as once the product is glazed it becomes an inert product with no movement whatsoever, unlike that of wood, Variations +/- 2% to the specifications are common and to be expected.


Kerasan Canterbury fireclay Sinks are manufactured with a durable glaze for years of beautiful performance, “Pristine White”!To ensure that your sink has a long serving life, Canterbury Sink & Tap recommend cleaning using a soft sponge or cloth and a non-abrasive product such as soap with water. We also have available Astonish as a spray cleaner and also recommend using our Canterbury grids or mats protecting the base to enhance the longevity of your Kerasan Canterbury Sink.

On the occasion that a metal pan or cutlery may mark the surface of the sink, which can appear as grey lines known as “silvering”, we recommend the Canterbury cream cleaner such and a  non-scratch scourer  to remove the mark.

Please do not use any concentrated chemicals such as bleach in sinks. If bleach is preferred ensure it is diluted, we suggest maximum three (3) parts water to one (1) part bleach, only occasionally, as constant use can affect the waste, particularly the rubber seals.  Whilst no coloured sink of any kind is impervious to damage, fireclay resists chips, scratches & stains better than other materials. In the rare instance of a chip, colour match repair kits are available.  However, a note of caution in avoiding any unwanted impact damage, please take care when using heavy items such as Cast iron pans as these could cause severe stress or even fracture the ceramic material if not handled with care.

The Kerasan Canterbury Sink is a handcrafted product so the graduation of the drain is subtle. This means that the water may not drain in the same way that you are accustomed with other more contemporary models & therefore the bottom of the bowl may need to be wiped occasionally.


Kerasan and Canterbury Sink & Tap offer a 15 Year Warranty on manufacturing defects, an example being lines or streaks appearing on the product (commonly known as crazing). The warranty covers replacement only of the item when it meets the criteria and is approved by the manufacturer.

The warranty does not cover any costs incurred to remove or install a replacement.

The warranty excludes wear and tear or any damage caused by impact or using a non-compliant cleaning product.

The warranty is not transferable and applies only to the original purchasers.

Proof of purchase is required to be supplied to the retailer for any warranty claim to proceed.

The manufacturer Kerasan or the importer Canterbury Sink & Tap, cannot be held liable for any damage caused by incorrect use of the sink or if the sink is dropped before installation.

We know you will love your Kerasan Canterbury fireclay ceramic sink. By following the care guide recommendations you will get years of enjoyment and durability from your fireclay sink.

Thank you for choosing a Kerasan Canterbury Sink from Canterbury Sink & Tap.

August 2019.


Congratulations on purchasing your Canterbury Sink & Tap product.

It was made in Italy by Nicolazzi who understands the essence of engineering and craftsmanship, with proper installation and care this unique product will provide years of enjoyment and service.

To maintain its beauty and to preserve your warranty please comply with the following care and cleaning instructions.

Care and Cleaning Instructions for Tapware and Accessories

Regularly clean with warm water or a mixture of mild Ph-neutral liquid soap (e.g. dishwashing liquid) and water, rinse with clean water and dry with a clean soft cloth (e.g. Microfiber)

Residue left by personal hygiene products such as liquid soap, tooth paste, shampoo and shower gel can cause damage, so always rinse these off the product with clean water immediately after use.

Under no circumstance should harsh cleaning agents containing acidic, caustic abrasive, citrus, bleach or alcohol based substances be used to clean your product or be allowed to remain on the metal finishes. Avoid dripping or spraying such cleaning agents on your product by covering with a cloth or towel and if splashed with these products they should be immediately rinsed with clean water and dry.

Do not use abrasive cloths, scouring pads, scrub sponges, steel wool etc as they may damage the surface product. If your water causes lime or mineral deposits to build up on the finish, please clean regularly with hot water and a soft cloth which will help prevent mineral deposits.

Product Finishes

Nicolazzi uses four types of product colour application:

  • Electroplated finishes this is the hardest and most durable finish in normal daily use.
  • Living Finishes that mature over time to develop a patina and unique character like old brassware products.
  • Lacquered Finishes which have an acrylic lacquer topcoat applied to provide additional protection these finishes are soft with low corrosion resistance.
  • Polymer Coated Finishes (Powder coated) these finishes are not as resistant to scratching and chipping so care should be taken not to knock the surface with hard objects etc.


Please refer to Nicolazzi web page (www.nicolazzi.it), listed under Stones & Finishes, for a detailed explanation of your tapware finish type for further clarification.

Imperial Bathrooms

All products should be inspected before installation.

  1. Sizes all sizes quoted in this brochure are nominal. Actual ceramic sizes may vary by + or – 2% against the figures quoted in our technical data. When planning installations where dimensions are critical it is essential that the space allowed for individual items is physically checked with the products to be installed.
  2. Wood Finishes – All natural wood finishes mature with age and Colours may vary slightly from batch to batch or from panel to panel. It is therefore not always possible to achieve a precise colour match when additional items are added at a later date.
  3. Vitreous China These are extremely hard, non-porous products; but are also brittle and therefore must not be put under stress during installation. Basin waste fittings when over tightened can create stress within the ceramic material which may in time cause the failure of the product. Waste fittings should be carefully bedded in silicon and the back nut hand tightened. One additional quarter turn using a suitable spanner is sufficient to create the required watertight seal. Care should also be taken when fitting brassware in order to prevent similar stress related failures.
  4. Cistern Flushing All Imperial Bathrooms WC pans and cisterns flush at 6 litres in compliance with European EN Standards
  5. Acrylic Baths – Acrylic bath sizes are nominal the final size often depending on the degree of detail incorporated in the design. All baths should be carefully inspected before installation.
  6. Gold & Nickel plating all items supplied in Antique Gold or Nickel finish have been plated in the UK and the plating complies with British and European Standards relating to the products concerned. These special order items can not be returned to Imperial
  7. Furniture – Imperial Bathrooms furniture is produced from a combination of solid wood and wood veneer panels, and all sizes quoted are nominal and must be checked against actual product. The timber used is supplied from renewable sources and whilst every care is taken in the manufacture of wooden products inevitably there will always be variation in both colour and grain pattern between individual pieces – indeed this is part of the beauty and unique appeal of using a natural material. Where frosted glass is a feature, only toughened safety glass is used.
  8. Cast Iron Baths – During manufacture a thick coat of powder enamel is fused onto the internal surface of the red hot cast iron. This long established process can however produce ripples, small dimples and specks on the surface which are indeed part of the character and appeal of this type of product and it is normal and to be expected- the performance of the bath is however not affected.
  9. Bar Pressures- The recommended operating pressure for taps, mixers and shower valves is from 0.3 Bar to 5 Bar. If the pressure is higher, a pressure reducing valve should be incorporated within the system.
  10. Tiles your tiles have been manufactured to simulate the look, (size, shape, colour, thickness, tone of glaze) of a hand made tile and, as such, are all different in appearance from each other. In order to obtain the best blend, we recommend taking tiles from a number of boxes on application. To obtain the best appearance, we recommend a 3mm grout line. Use only waterproof adhesives and grouts. For Further Technical Data and for further installation instructions on the Tiles please contact the sales office on +44 1922 743074

Looking after your Bathroom

Sanitaryware -The glazed finish of your Sanitaryware should be cleaned after use by applying a little cream-type cleaner. Apply using a sponge or damp cloth and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Cleaners containing abrasive materials should be avoided.

Antique Gold , Chrome or Nickel plated brassware and taps should be cleaned with warm soapy water and dried with a soft cloth. Under no circumstances should bleach or abrasive cleaning products, polishes, or detergent be used on plated surfaces and in particular should these materials be used on Nickel or Gold plated items it is possible that the surface will be damaged.

Acrylic baths should be cleaned using similar non abrasive cleaners. Bathroom vanity furniture, Seats and Bath Panels can be wiped over with a damp cloth and dried with a soft duster. The use of polishes containing silicon or any abrasive materials can damage the wood finish. Natural wax polishes should be used sparingly and applied using a soft dry cloth.

Stone / Marble – To assist you in use, each piece of stone/marble has already been pre-sealed but will require regular maintenance with appropriate care and sealant products. We have used a special impregnation which optimally protects absorbent, stain-sensitive natural stone surfaces. It largely prevents the penetration of oil, greases, and water and makes further maintenance easier. Using the right ongoing care products will facilitate the cleaning process and will Maintain a fresher appearance of your stone surfaces. We recommend that you re-treat your purchase on a quarterly or six-monthly basis dependent upon use.

Tiles should be cleaned by washing with warm water to which a neutral, clear, low sulphate detergent has been added. After cleaning, rinse well with clean water and polish with a clean soft dry cloth.
