PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 19, 2012) — Complying with accessibility standards for both children and adults, the newly improved Murro lavatory sink from American Standard is a universal design product with barrier-free operation, plus the exclusive EverClean antimicrobial surface for easier maintenance.
The Murro lavatory sink complies with 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 2012 Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS). Offering attractive lines and smart design, this modern, universal design wall-mount sink provides an appealing new accessible option for institutional specifiers and architects.
The vitreous china sink also features the permanent EverClean antimicrobial surface, which inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. Fixtures that include EverClean are ideal for institutional, healthcare and educational applications, helping the units to stay cleaner longer, even after years of use.
Boasting a sleek, universal design, the Murro sink features a generous 15 1/2-inch by 13 ½-inch rectangular bowl that is 5-inches deep. The sink includes a recessed, self-draining deck to prevent water from pooling and potentially harboring bacteria. This wall-hung lavatory is available with either a rear overflow or sealed overflow drain, making it well-suited for commercial and hospital applications.
This new Murro sink model offers complete flexibility for specifiers, thanks to a number of expanded options. The sink is available in a full range of single, 4” centerset, or 8” widespread lavatory faucet hole configurations. An additional extra hole (left or right) for soap dispenser is another optional selection. Specifiers may also choose to add a vitreous china shroud/knee contact guard that presents a polished, clean-looking installation.
