A Pedestal Wash Basin is effectively column mounted, so loads applied to the basin are largely transferred directly to the floor. Semi pedestal designs have a wall fixed partial column support, less effective than a full pedestal, but superior to the load capacity of a wall mounted basin. The basin is supported by a pedestal that reaches all the way to the floor, providing a stable fixing as well as hiding all the pipework. It is secured to the floor as well as the wall, so the pedestal isnât actually taking the full weight of the basin. Pedestal Wash Basin is very attractive.
