Jan 10, 2017

American Standard Presents Comprehensive Offering with Design Flexibility; Specifiers Favor Durable Construction, Easy Installation, Lifetime Operation

ORLANDO, KITCHEN & BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (January 10, 2017) ― Combining trusted materials and refreshing transitional design lines, the new Colony PRO collection of bath and kitchen faucets from American Standard complements a wide variety of decors in both residential and hospitality settings, all at an appealing price.

Offering a combination of sleek transitional styling, durable construction, high-efficiency performance and ease of installation, the new Colony PRO bath faucet collection from American Standard is an ideal choice for hospitality settings.

This coordinated assortment offers a variety of valuable features – easy installation, drip-free performance, durable metal bodies, and impressive water savings – that are important elements to contractors, specifiers, home builders and facility managers.

Colony PRO Bath Collection
The Colony PRO bath collection incorporates a variety of lavatory and bath/shower faucet configurations to offer exceptional design flexibility. The assortment includes a distinctive monoblock model suited for single-hole installation, in addition to 4-inch centerset single-handle, 4-inch centerset two-handle, and 8-inch widespread styles. The collection is rounded out with a deck-mount bathtub faucet and bath/shower trim set.

The Colony PRO monoblock bathroom faucet from American Standard, shown here in the popular legacy bronze, offers a refreshing, modern sense of style, making it ideal for stylish residential and hospitality settings.

“We conducted extensive research with contractors and found that this new Colony PRO faucet collection was preferred by trade professionals over similar lines from competitors. This comprehensive product line effectively meets the faucet needs of specifiers in a breadth of commercial applications,” said Noelle Giblin, senior director for faucets at LIXIL Americas, the business unit under which American Standard operates. “In home settings, consumers will enjoy refreshing styling and exceptional performance, with the storied reputation of American Standard ingenuity and quality behind these classic kitchen and bath faucets.”

The Colony PRO bath collection includes several brand-exclusive features sure to please commercial installers and specifiers, as well as value-conscious homeowners. Ensuring optimum performance, these faucets include patented ceramic disc valves to guarantee a lifetime of drip-free performance, sturdy metal faucet bodies for durability, and flexible stainless steel braided hoses that connect quickly and easily to the water supply.

Like all American Standard bath faucets, the Colony PRO bathroom sink faucets provide water savings without sacrificing performance. Incorporating pressure-compensating aerators, they deliver a strong water stream while using a water-conserving 1.2 gallons per minute (gpm). These bath faucets provide 45 percent water savings over standard models and meet stringent WaterSense-certification criteria from the U.S. Environmental protection Agency (EPA).

The WaterSense-certified showerheads in the Colony PRO bath/shower trim sets use only 1.75 gpm, which is 40 percent less water than conventional showerheads.

Offering exceptionally easy installation, the Colony PRO widespread bath faucet saves time and labor with its Speed Connect pre-assembled handle installation system that can be dropped in from the top. Both widespread and single-handle Colony PRO bath faucets feature 24-inch stainless steel color-coded supply lines that connect directly to supply stops to further simplify installation.

Colony PRO shower faucets are uncomplicated to install with their compatibility to the TRIMendous universal valve technology that is unique to American Standard. This patented internal design makes it straightforward to upgrade any existing American Standard bath/shower in-wall valve without having to rip out tile.

The Colony PRO lavatory faucet collection is available in three attractive, long-lasting finishes: the fashionable on-trend legacy bronze – ideal as a builder upgrade – along with the ever-popular polished chrome and satin nickel styles.

All WaterSense-certified Colony PRO bathroom sink faucets, including this single-handle model shown in polished chrome, offer a water-saving flow rate of 1.2 gallons per minute (gpm) and washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of drip-free performance.

To create a coordinated bathroom suite, the sleek transitional lines of the Colony PRO collection are complemented by the American Standard C series accessory offering that includes a robe hook, towel ring, and toilet paper holder, plus 18-inch and 24-inch towel bars.

Colony PRO Kitchen Collection
This new offering of kitchen faucets is available in a wide array of styles and configurations that all showcase a water-efficient 1.5 gpm flow rate. A popular single-handle model showcasing one-hole installation with an optional deckplate and side spray is a highlight in the line, along with attractive single-control pull-out and pull-down models.

Two-handle faucet models — in both high and low arc styles — are featured in this transitionally-designed assortment and can be purchased with or without a side spray. Bar and laundry faucets in two-handle configurations are available to complete this offering, satisfying hospitality and home builders with an affordable, comprehensive collection meeting their construction needs.

Both the Colony PRO kitchen and lavatory faucet collections are equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of water-saving, drip free performance. They feature durable metal construction for strength and lasting beauty. All models are ‘lead free’ as defined under applicable federal and state laws.

These attractive new kitchen faucets are offered in polished chrome, with select styles also available in popular stainless steel finish. They are a beautiful accent to the new American Standard Colony collection of stainless steel kitchen sinks, launching in April 2017, which feature single and double bowl models with durable 20-gauge construction.

New from American Standard, the Colony PRO two-handle, high-arc kitchen faucet features an updated design available in a choice of stainless steel and polished chrome finishes, as well as washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of drip-free performance.

These new Colony PRO faucet collections are available at plumbing wholesalers nationwide. The complete offering is covered by a limited lifetime warranty when used in residential settings, and a five-year warranty when installed commercially.

List prices for this Colony PRO collection are: sink faucets $100 – $370; bathtub and shower trim sets $40 – $392; and kitchen faucets $100 – $330.
