PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 22, 2013) – Featuring iconic details inspired by Colonial Virginia, the new Portsmouth collection of kitchen and bar faucets from American Standard offers convenient, modern functionality with a classic sense of style for cookery and entertaining. 

Portsmouth is a full line of single control and two handle kitchen faucets, plus coordinating faucets for bar sinks, all carefully crafted with vintage detailing and classic shapes for the feeling of authentic, Old World workmanship. The line includes:

Single Control Kitchen Faucets

  • Pull out faucet with 2-function spray
  • Pull down faucet with 2-function spray and pause feature
  • High arc faucet with side spray 
  • Conventional faucet with side spray

Two Handle Kitchen Faucets

  • High arc faucet with side spray

Bar Sink Faucets

  • Single control, pull down bar faucet
  • Two handle bar faucet.

This complete collection of eight faucet styles is available in a choice of three durable finishes: a classic polished chrome, a popular stainless steel, or a beautiful oil rubbed bronze – a warm finish with muted hues and authentic copper highlights.

The pull down and pull out faucets in this Portsmouth collection feature the American Standard exclusive Re-Trax spray hose system for comfortable, trouble-free use. It provides smooth operation with optimum resilience, plus a heavier pull down counterweight ensures effortless hose retraction and secure docking of the faucet head.

Both the Portsmouth pull down and pull out kitchen faucets include a useful 2-function spray. Plus, the pull down model provides a convenient pause feature that allows the user to stop the stream of water with a simple, one-handed operation.

For installation flexibility, the single handle kitchen faucets offer the option of one or three hole installation with the included deck plate.

These Portsmouth faucets are equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of water-saving, drip-free performance. The complete collection features sturdy metal construction and all models are lead free as defined under all applicable federal and state laws.
