American Standard Streamlines Specifying Process for Commercial Chinaware Systems
Packaged Solutions Provide Performance, Water-Savings and No-Callback Operation
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (August 10, 2011) — Commercial specifiers can now easily select and save on the most popular American Standard® fixtures and flush valve systems in one streamlined process. Thirty-four pairings of commercial urinals, toilets and flush valves are designed to make commercial specifying more efficient, while yielding a combined savings over the individual component prices for contractors and wholesalers. One item number, one order, one price, one shipment, one invoice – it’s as simple as that.
Moreover, these design-matched systems are specifically engineered to work together to provide the best performance, water efficiency and no-call back operation.
“Specifiers can now quickly and easily recommend the most popular high-performance commercial product systems, without extensive research into proper mixing and matching,” explains Tony D’Amato, senior product manager of commercial products for American Standard. “And in addition to streamlining the specifying function, this consolidated process helps expedite delivery and paperwork for large volume commercial projects.”
Specifiers may select among standard or high-efficiency fixture models, manual or Selectronic® hands-free flush valves in varying flush volumes, wall or floor mounting fixtures, as well as products that feature the EverClean® antimicrobial surface. EverClean is a permanent finish that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. Fixture/flush valve systems that feature EverClean are ideal for healthcare and institutional applications, helping the units stay cleaner, longer with their antimicrobial surface.
The toilet fixture/flush valve combinations include standard 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or 1.28 gpf high-efficiency styles (HETs), which conserve up to 20 percent of water over standard models. Standard 1.0 gpf urinals, as well as high-efficiency urinals (HEUs) are available in 0.5 gpf or 0.125 gpf models, yielding 50 percent and 87 percent water savings respectively, over standard units. A variety of ADA-compliant fixtures are also offered in the fixture/flush valve systems.
American Standard fixture/flush valve systems are designed for easy maintenance and engineered for accurate and reliable performance in any environment. These combination systems come with a five-year warranty.
