Treat Yourself to Spa-Like Luxury with Extender™ Multifunction Body Sprays from American Standard

Unique Flush-Mount Sprays Automatically Extend During Operation to Easily Adjust Angle and Function

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (April 23, 2010) - Dramatic spa-like elegance and relaxation are now more stylish and affordable with Extender™ flush-mounted, multifunction body sprays from American Standard. These unique body sprays provide the choice of three invigorating spray patterns while incorporating a convenient auto-retract feature.

These distinctive body sprays feature an innovative function that automatically extends the spray head from the wall when the water is turned on and discreetly retracts it when turned off.  Once extended, users can easily adjust the spray angle by 30-degrees, as well as select their desired spray pattern (full, massage or combination), to customize the perfect shower experience for each individual family member.

The flush mount design has just a 1/2-inch profile when not in use and gives your shower retreat a clean, uncluttered look. When in operation, the exclusive extender feature automatically expands to enable users to adjust the spray angle and pattern.

Easy-grip indentations make it simple to change spray patterns with wet, soapy hands.  The Extender offers a soothing, yet full, spray with only 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) maximum flow rate, and is quickly installed in standard 2 1/4-inch rough-ins with no special tools.

The spray is available in round or square designs to match today's traditional or contemporary styling.  Available finishes include polished chrome, blackened bronze, stainless steel and satin nickel and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Suggested retail pricing ranges from $140 to $210.
