PISCATAWAY, N.J. (August 8, 2013) – A range of new heavy-duty faucets have been added to the popular Monterrey commercial faucet collection from American Standard.
Designed to stand up to the most demanding applications for institutional, education, and hospital installations, the new models feature solid brass construction and cast valve bodies designed to withstand heavy usage.
These Monterrey commercial faucets are equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of water-saving, drip-free performance. They are lead free as defined under all applicable federal and state laws. Plus, all widespread models include wrist blade handles, meeting ADA-compliance for ease of use.
This line extension ― with all faucets available in polished chrome finish ― includes a healthcare faucet, a single control kitchen faucet and multiple styles of centerset and widespread commercial lavatory faucets.
Healthcare Faucet with Laminar Spout
Ideal for hospital installations, the Monterrey healthcare faucet features a pressure-compensating laminar flow device in the spout base that prevents air from being drawn into the water stream, while its plain spout end eliminates areas for lime and debris to collect. This hospital faucet features an 8-inch spout reach and a water saving flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm).
Single Control Centerset Lavatory Faucets
Featuring a solid cast brass body and shanks for maximum vandal resistance, this single control faucet is available in a choice of two water-saving, pressure-compensating flow options: a 1.5 gpm aerator or a 0.5 gpm multi-laminar spray to save even more water. An adjustable hot limit safety stop helps prevent accidental scalding by regulating the amount of hot water that mixes with cold to flow through the faucet. This rugged single control faucet for commercial bathroom sinks is available either with or without a conventional metal drain, to suit any application.
Widespread Lavatory Faucets with Rose Sprays
Well-suited for scrub and hand washing sinks, these widespread commercial faucets can be installed as a rigid or swivel spout. These gooseneck faucets are available with both 5-inch and 8-inch spouts for optimum reach in various size sinks. They feature a rose spray that provides multi-stream coverage with two concentric sprays for a full, strong water stream. These faucets offer a water-saving flow rate of 1.5 gpm without sacrificing performance, thanks to a pressure-compensating aerator in the spout.
Single Control Kitchen Faucet
This single control kitchen faucet features a brass, gooseneck spout with an 8-inch reach that can be installed as either rigid or swivel style. The separate spout and remote valve allow for flexible installation; plus the faucet is available with or without a convenient, color-matched hand spray. For added safety, the adjustable hot limit safety stop controls the amount of hot water that mixes with cold to flow through the faucet, helping to prevent accidental scalding. This single control faucet offers a 1.5 gpm flow rate, which meets even the most stringent water conservation requirements for kitchen faucets, including the 2010 California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen).
Widespread Lavatory Faucets: 0.5 or 1.5 gpm with Rigid/Swivel Gooseneck Spout
Additional alternatives for hand washing and scrub sinks are these 8-inch widespread faucets with field-convertible rigid/swivel gooseneck spouts and a choice of pressure-compensating water flow rates: either a 0.5 gpm multi-laminar spray or a 1.5 gpm aerator. Both water conserving faucets offer the option of a matching grid drain.
