American Standard Brand Faucets Now Available at Menards
Stylish, Affordable Bathroom and Kitchen Faucets with Water Saving, Easy Install Features from American Standard in All Menards Stores
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (December 17, 2012) — American Standard® bath and kitchen faucets ― known for attractive styling, affordable pricing, and easy installation ― are now available at Menards. Coordinated collections of bathroom faucets and tub/shower trim sets, offered in a wide array of finishes, make it easy to update the look of any bathroom without breaking the bank.
New Collections for the Bath
The Lyncroft™ bathroom faucet collection offers elegant shapes and traditional detailing at competitive pricing for homeowners. Faucets are 4-inch centerset or 8-inch widespread configurations. A design-matched shower/tub trim with a 2.0 gallons per minute (gpm) showerhead flow rate completes the look of this bathroom collection. All pieces are available in chrome, brushed nickel, or estate bronze finish.
The Lyncroft faucets offer the exclusive Speed Connect® system for fast and easy installation. The pre-assembled drain seals tightly so water stays in the sink, and the lift rod comes set to the correct height and never comes loose.
Featuring clean, simple lines and a budget friendly-price tag, the Stratton™ bathroom faucet line includes single control and 4-inch centerset bath faucets, as well as shower/tub trim sets. Available finishes include brushed nickel and chrome.
Like all American Standard bathroom faucets, these two new collections have a 1.5 gpm flow rate, and incorporate pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard models. They are WaterSense®-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring water savings without sacrificing performance.
New Faucets for the Kitchen
Two stylish and functional American Standard kitchen faucets are now sold at Menards. The Tinley™ dual control faucet comes with a color-matched spray and is available in a choice of three designer finishes: chrome, stainless steel, and estate bronze.
The Sycamore™ single control pull-out faucet includes a convenient 2-function toggle spray head. Finishes offered include chrome, stainless steel, white, and matte black.
Both faucets feature a 1.8 gallons gpm flow rate.
For additional high-style design choices for both the bathroom and kitchen, other American Standard faucets are available via special order at Menards.
Performance with Style
Like all American Standard faucets, these bathroom and kitchen faucets are worry-free, drip-free and built to last. Each faucet is equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of reliable, water-saving performance.
The faucets in these new assortments are ADA-compliant, plus are covered by a limited lifetime warranty on both function and finish.
