An ablution washbasin is not a normal basin, but we need to consider it can accommodate to wash face, hands and most important, FEET WASH.
There are 5 main factors when we choose a wudu basin.
1.BY Material, there are 3 kinds of material ceramic, acrylic, PP, etc.
- ceramic wudu basin is the heaviest, each basin is up to 30kg-50kg. It goes with the advantage of smooth shining finish, easy clean, longer life, ceramic wudu basin molding charges is the highest, so the costs are the highest.
2) acrylic wudu basin is much lighter, each wudu basin is around 10kg-20kg. It goes with the advantage of easy clean, lighter, the molding charge is the middle. Due to the technology, acrylic can go with more styles, bigger size models.
3) plastic(PP) wudu basin are mainly in smaller size, and focus on foot wash only.
2.BY Size. We suggest you leave around 70cm from the basin to the wall, ensure there is enough space for other people moving while one people is using wudu basin.
- The big size wudu basin with depth is around 100cm, it fits for big size home
bathroom, mosque, or multi faith room. The integrated seat is so convenient.
- the middle size wudu basin with depth is around 65cm-75cm, it fits for normal size
home bathroom, multi faith place, etc. Generally, it goes with a special design seat. When no use, just put the seat and save space.
