American Standard started more than 140 years ago and has always been ahead of the innovation curve with quality products that look great and make your life easier. They are known for their benchmark toilets that don’t clog, easy to install quality faucets and products that keep themselves clean. They have a full line of product innovations that are LEED, EPA WaterSense and ADA compliant and their warranties and service are unsurpassed. All of American standard products perform flawlessly without compromising on style. They offer a broad range of kitchen and bath products that can meld with any style and have a good selection of water saving products that will do more with a lot less. We’ve highlighted a few of these fantastic innovations that have kept American Standard products in three out of five homes in America.
Lead Free – Safety has always been a top priority at American Standard and starting in 2009 they converted their entire line of faucets to lead-free. Lead at very small levels is completely allowed during the fabrication of kitchen and bath faucets. But even at small “acceptable” levels, some people just don’t want to take the chance of ingesting lead into their bodies. American Standard understands this, and has come up with a new alloy formula that replaces lead with an unusually low toxic alloy called bismuth. This means you still get the same high quality faucet you would expect from American Standard but now it’s totally lead-free.
WaterSense Certified – This label was developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for toilets and faucets that meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. American Standard had developed many quality toilets and faucets that bear the prestigious WaterSense label. They have a line of FloWise showerheads that deliver a drenching spray and only use 1.5 gallons per minute, which saves about 40% over a standard showerhead. Their FloWise toilets use only 1.28 gallons per flush or less, which is a huge savings considering some older toilets still in use today use up to 4 gallons per flush! All of American Standard’s bathroom faucets save 32% more water than other standard faucets on the market. Look for the WaterSense label before purchasing your next American Standard faucet and start conserving today.
EverClean Surfaces – Whenever you purchase an American Standard whirlpool or air bath it comes standard with the EverClean system. They apply a permanent glaze additive inside the circulation piping. This glaze helps protects the pipes from accumulating mold, algae, mildew and fungus, all of which could cause health issues, not to mention deterioration of the pipes. On the toilet side, the Everclean system is a double-coated surface that deters the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. This means the smooth surface of your one piece or two piece toilet stays even cleaner between cleanings and will hold up with years of use.
Speed Connect – Calling in the plumber to install your new kitchen and bath faucet is fast becoming a thing of the past. American Standard has developed a cool new innovation called Speed Connect that easily allows you to install your faucet or toilet yourself and get to enjoy it sooner. For instance the Speed Connect sink drain that comes pre-assembled on the Tropic Centerset Bathroom Faucet may not seem like a big feat in itself but when you realize most drains come loose in a package with as many as 14 parts to assemble, that’s when you really appreciate Speed Connect. These drains have just 4 parts to assemble and you don’t need any special tools or plumber’s putty. The drain seals tight and the lift rod comes pre-set to the correct height for a no-brainer DIY application.
These are just a few of the many innovations American Standard has incorporated into their products to keep them an industry leader.
