Just because you shampoo from the side no longer means you cannot enjoy the many benefits of a backwash shampoo system. Now Collins makes it possible with their new Sidewash Shampoo Shuttles. These innovative systems have a porcelain bowl that will never stain from haircolor, the bowls and backrests both tilt and the entire seat adjusts forward and back, all of which make your clients enormously more comfortable while being shampooed.
When you purchase salon shampoo stations manufactured by Collins you know you have made the right decision. The salon shampoo stations are likely to last for your entire career. The stations are highly functional. Contain lots of storage. And with so many good looking designs to select from, you will find the perfect look that will make you proud.
Most salon shampoo stations are designed with a traditional American style shampoo bowl setup. The person shampooing stands to the side of the shampoo bowl and must bend over while working. A person using a European style or Backwash salon shampoo stations stands behind the shampoo bowl and does not bend while working. The difference is significant. Eliminate all the bending and you will feel much better at the end of a long day. See our Backwash Shampoo Systems.
The quality of the salon shampoo stations begins with the materials. The substrates in Collins salon shampoo stations are either cabinet grade plywood or cabinet grade melamine surfaced on both sides. The exterior surfaces are laminated with high-pressure laminate (HPL) in the color, pattern, and brand you specify. Formica, Wilsonart, Pionite, Nevemar, and Laminart laminates are all available. The interior cabinet surfaces of the salon shampoo stations are black or white thermo-fused melamine which can be cleaned in the same fashion as the high-pressure laminate on the exterior cabinet surfaces.
Drawers are constructed of 1/2" vinyl-clad wood with a durable laminated drawer bottom. The drawers are installed using ball-bearing, full-extension drawer slides that will provide years of trouble free service. Cabinet doors, made from the materials specified above, are mounted with state-of-the-art 32mm European style cup hinges that are adjustable.
Chrome or brass spherical knobs or wire pulls are used on doors and drawers of all salon wet stations. Collins only uses commercially available UL listed power-strips, metal electrical boxes, duplex receptacles, and covers from nationally known manufacturers. Curling iron holders are constructed from light gauge metal, flanged, and chrome plated. Blow dryer holders and Collins Clipper Pockets are molded plastic.
