PISCATAWAY, N.J.(September 11, 2012) — Offering elegant details and clean, transitional lines, the new Chapeau pedestal lavatory from Porcher beautifully coordinates with a wide range of bathroom decors. The white pedestal lavatory completes the Chapeau suite, highlighting a signature, stylish look that is matched with superior craftsmanship and high performance.
Designed to complement the Chapeau LXP™ line of luxury performance toilets, this basin has a beveled design that translates to the base of the pedestal and the toilet footprint. Available separately as a wall-hung option, or with a 36” Right Height® pedestal for increased comfort and ease of use, the Chapeau lavatory offers the ultimate in design flexibility. The 24” lavatory size adds a subtle highlight when mounted on the wall in a small powder room, yet with the optional pedestal makes an exquisite design statement in a luxurious master bath suite.
The Chapeau lavatory features faucet holes on 8” centers and fine fire clay construction. Also available is an optional European complete pop-up drain assembly, which is offered in three finishes: polished chrome, polished nickel and brushed nickel.
The matching Chapeau LXP toilet features a stately, one-piece elongated design and is available in 1.6 gallon per flush (gpf) or high efficiency 1.28 gpf models. Both models feature American Standard® PowerWash® bowl cleaning technology, which ensures a powerful flush and superior bowl cleaning, every time. PowerWash scrubs the bowl with pressurized water from the rim during each flush to remove every last trace of paper and waste, even with only 1.28 gpf. This proven flushing platform earns the Chapeau LXP toilets the highest possible rating in the Maximum Performance (MaP) test — an independent report of toilet bulk removal performance — by successfully flushing 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of solid waste.
For even easier cleaning, the Chapeau LXP toilet offers the exclusive American Standard permanent EverClean® surface that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria on the surface, making toilets stay cleaner, longer. Also included with the luxury toilet is a design matched duroplast slow-close seat, which eliminates the loud slamming of standard toilet seats.
