American Standard Expands Line of Accessible Solutions with Hands-Free Faucets for the Bath
PISCATAWAY, N.J.(July 9, 2012) — Modern convenience and water efficiency are now seamlessly integrated into the contemporary styled Moments hands-free bathroom faucets from American Standard.
The universally accessible no-touch faucet design is safer and easier to use thanks to the Selectronic proximity sensor, an advanced system that delivers on the promise, not the hassle, of hands-free faucet technology. It is ideal in homes with small children, elderly or physically-challenged adults because it eliminates the possibility of leaving the faucet running when not in use.
An optional thermostatic mixing valve supplies water at a comfortable, preselected temperature to help prevent potential hot-water scalding.
In addition, Moments hands-free bathroom faucets provide homeowners the opportunity to conserve water. The 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) no-touch faucet model uses nearly one-third less water than a conventional 2.2 gpm bathroom faucet. This water savings can be more than doubled with the 0.5 gpm high efficiency model, which saves 77.3 percent water over a standard bathroom fixture.
The Moments’ Selectronic sensor automatically activates the water when an object or hands are within the sensing zone. A built-in comfort-timer stops water flow two seconds after motion ceases allowing the user to move theirs hands comfortably without the water turning off. The Selectronic sensing zone is preset at the factory and can be easily adjusted either manually or via remote control with the touch of a button.
Solid brass construction and seamless design provide for easy cleaning and durability. The single-post lavatory faucet can be installed with or without the optional four-inch deck plate, designed to offer flexible mounting options that will work with a variety of sinks. For installation convenience, the product is shipped with 15-inch factory installed stainless steel supply lines that include 3/8-inch compression connections.
The Moments faucets meet all federal and state regulatory standards for ‘lead free’ plumbing fixtures. They are available in polished chrome with a limited lifetime warranty.
