PHILADELPHIA, GREENBUILD (November 20, 2013) ― Inspired by the modern minimalist design movement, the new Times Square bathroom faucet collection from American Standard offers clean lines reflecting shades of contemporary architecture and urban living. Beneath the sleek exterior is the water saving efficiency and drip-free performance that are hallmarks of American Standard manufacturing.
Featuring sophisticated, geometric shapes, the Times Square widespread sink faucets offer a choice of two striking spout options: one featuring angular design lines, the other replicating the smooth flow of water with its shapely arc.
Standing tall like a modern architectural wonder, the Times Square single handle faucet offers convenient, one handle control of both water temperature and volume. This single control faucet features a temperature memory setting that allows the water to be turned off in any position and turned back on at the same temperature.
The array of tub and shower faucets available in the Times Square collection makes it easy to build a luxurious and functional bath composed of timeless architectural design elements. In addition to a striking deck mount tub filler, this line consists of a bath/shower trim kit featuring a brass rain showerhead and a complete line of shower system trim to create a spa-like getaway, right in your bathroom. Water saving versions of the shower fixtures are also available, featuring a water efficient 2.0 gallons per minute (gpm) flow rate.
Smart Features and Lasting Performance
Underneath the up-to-date good looks of the Times Square collection, are advanced technologies and convenient features that will help save water, simplify installation and reduce maintenance:
All three lavatory sink faucets have a water conserving 1.5 gpm flow rate, incorporating pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard faucet models. They are WaterSense-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring water savings without sacrificing performance.
Engineered for fast and easy installation, these new bath faucets incorporate the American Standard exclusive pre-assembled metal Speed Connect drain. This innovative system simplifies drain installation and never needs adjusting. The drain seals tightly so water stays in the sink, and the lift rod comes set to correct height and never works loose.
The line's shower faucets feature pressure balance valves that offer quick reaction time to changes in the force of the water supply, helping to prevent accidental scalding; plus they avoid any noticeable change in the water flow rate.
All bath and shower trim in this collection are compatible with TRIMendous universal valve technology, which makes it easy to upgrade any existing American Standard bath/shower in-wall valve, eliminating the need to rip out tile.
Like all American Standard faucets, the Times Square bathroom faucets are worry-free, drip-free and built to last. The line is ADA-compliant with lever handles for ease of use. Plus, every faucet is covered by a limited lifetime warranty on both function and finish.
To complete this clean, contemporary look, the CS Series bathroom accessories coordinate beautifully with the Times Square faucet assortment. The CS Series includes two towel bars (18 and 24-inch lengths), a towel ring, a robe hook, and a toilet paper holder for convenient functionality and minimalistic styling in the bath.Like the Times Square collection, the CS Series of accessories is available in a choice of polished chrome or satin nickel finishes.
