Convenient Hand Shower with Matching Slide Bar Offers Ultimate Showering Convenience for Guests

Apr 20, 2018


LAS VEGAS, HD EXPO (May 2, 2018) ― The new Spectra collection from American Standard, part of LIXIL, maker of pioneering water and housing products, offers a comprehensive range of hand showers and showerheads for hospitality facilities to offer guests. The Spectra collection empowers the user with flexible choices to suit individualized preferences, suiting hotel visitors of all ages and mobility levels.

A highlight in the range is the Spectra Handheld hand shower, with its flexible 59-inch shower hose and 30-inch wall mounted slide bar, which offers optimum convenience and ease-of-use in hotel bathrooms. The lightweight, ergonomic design of the hand shower ensures a secure grip, even with wet, soapy hands. Users can create a customized shower experience, selecting from a choice of four spray settings ― Drench, Sensitive, PowerWash, and Massage ― while the innovative AquaToggle tab located conveniently on the rim allows the spray patterns to be easily changed.

Versatile Showering Options

Created to provide a comprehensive selection of showerheads and hand shower options, the Spectra collection offers several high-performance showering products:

  • The Spectra Duo model combines a 9 ½-inch fixed showerhead and 5-inch multi-function hand shower, allowing facilities to offer two convenient showering options without breaking wall tile for retrofitting and upgrading.
  • The Spectra Rain showerhead delivers a broad, single-function drenching spray with its 11-inch diameter design, providing full-body coverage.
  • The Spectra Fixed 7-inch multi-function showerhead offers a choice of four luxurious spray patterns that are easy to change with the AquaToggle tab located conveniently on the rim.
  • The SpectraTouch showerhead changes spray patterns with a simple touch on the outside ring of the showerhead, with a multi-function 7-inch showerhead that offers a choice of four spray patterns.
  • The Spectra eTouch showerhead includes a remote control to mount on any shower surface, providing a solution for users who have difficulty reaching the showerhead due to age, height or mobility restrictions.


Spectacular Sprays with Water Efficiency

All multifunction Spectra showerheads and hand showers feature four customized spray styles from five luxurious choices, depending on model: Drench, Sensitive, Jet, Massage and PowerWash. They are offered in a standard 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) model or a WaterSense-certified 1.8 gpm option and feature easy-to-clean spray nozzles to reduce maintenance.

 Several brand exclusive technologies provide reliable operation and ease-of-use. The DivertPaddle, conveniently located on the front of the fixed shower head unit, makes it simple to switch from the combined spray to hand shower only. The Spectra Duo’s Dock-Tite feature incorporates a strong magnet to easily and securely dock the hand shower to the showerhead.

 The Spectra collection is available in four popular finishes: polished chrome, polished nickel, legacy bronze and brushed nickel. It complements the American Standard Serin bathroom sink faucets, which exhibit the sleek design lines showcased by the Spectra assortment.

 The Spectra shower range is available at kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide. List prices range from $79 to $279. To learn more, visit
