High Style Meets Functional Innovation in the New Berwick Collection from American Standard
A complete collection of bathroom faucets distinguished by smooth lines and relaxed contours
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (March 19, 2010) — Inspired by the ribbon mills on the banks of the scenic Susquehanna River, the Berwick™ Collection from American Standard marries fluid design with refined precision. Its dramatic, ribbon-like water flow, reminiscent of flowing satin, captivates the senses, refreshing and revitalizing everything within its reach.
Distinguished by its sleek linear design, the Berwick Collection extends across the bath with a full collection of faucets designed to provide a coordinated look and feel throughout the space. All Berwick bathroom sink models are WaterSense®-certified for water efficiency and comply with the most stringent lead-free requirements. The widespread model has an innovative swivel spout that rotates from left to right smoothly and effortlessly, enabling easy rinsing of hard-to-reach areas and facilitating access to the sink basin.
All bathroom sink faucets feature American Standard’s exclusive Speed Connect™ drain technology. Pre-assembled for easy installation, Speed Connect provides a tight seal so water actually stays in the sink, making rinsing fine washables a walk in the park. The drain lift “knob,” an industry first, is integrated into the spout, resulting in a clean, smooth design that never needs adjusting.
Design-matched tub fillers, bath/showers and shower-system trim complete the collection. Berwick bath/shower trim leverages American Standard’s TRIMendous universal valve technology, making it easy to upgrade any existing American Standard bath/shower in-wall valve, eliminating the need to rip out tile.
The bath/shower also features a beautiful contemporary 6” brass rain showerhead that will give the look and feel of luxury to any bathroom. Rounding out the collection is a full line of shower system trim that will turn any bathroom into a personalized luxury spa.
Accessories from the Serin™ Collection — towel bars and rings, robe hooks and toilet tissue holders — provide a final complement, lending a unified, finished look to the entire room.
Like all American Standard bathroom faucets, Berwick fixtures are worry-free, drip-free and built to last. Available finishes include polished chrome and satin nickel and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
