American Standard Introduces Two High-Performance Space-Saving Designs with Lucia™ and Huron™ Fixtures
PISCATAWAY, N.J.(August 19, 2011) — Good things come in small packages. American Standard illustrates this adage in two new commercial bath offerings that combine high-performance and low-maintenance features with innovative small-space designs. The new Lucia™ wall hung lavatory and Huron™ toilet are small in stature, but offer full-sized features and performance.
Lucia Wall-Hung Lavatory Sink
The strikingly stylish Lucia wall-mount lavatory sink offers integral side shelves – perfect for storing toiletries – and suitable for small spaces such as medical offices, hotels, restaurants and condominiums.
The practical design offers nearly 15-inches of usable storage surface and a graceful bowed front bowl that is complemented by an arching 2-inch back splash. The sink’s upscale and modern appearance is accompanied by an optional vitreous china shroud that offers a polished, clean-looking installation.
The ADA-compliant sink features a single faucet hole, with additional models offering four- or eight-inch centers available in early 2012.
Huron Floor-Mount Rear Outlet Toilet
The Huron high-efficiency toilet (HET) offers a unique space-saving shape in a floor-mount, rear-outlet design. Measuring a scant 24 ½-inches from the wall – nearly four-inches shorter than a standard toilet – the Huron toilet combines leading HET performance and product features not traditionally available to commercial specifiers.
“Specifiers need versatile products like the Huron for space-challenged applications that require
floor-mounted, rear outlet designs along with HET performance,” explains Tony D’Amato, senior product manager,commercial products for American Standard. “The Huron combines all of these leading features in one of the smallest footprints available.”
The sturdy floor-mount design of the Huron toilet is ideal for institutional and healthcare/bariatric applications, while its Right Height® rim measurement of 17 ¼-inches makes it a solid choice for accessible and ADA-compliant installations. The high-efficiency, low-consumption toilet utilizes between 1.1 and 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf), while offering direct-fed siphon jet action with a 2-inch fully-glazed trapway and a 1½-inch top spud opening.
In addition to its compact design, the Huron toilet mounts directly against the floor and wall, eliminating hard-to-clean areas. The Huron toilet features the EverClean® permanent glaze that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface, helping it stay cleaner, longer.
Both the Lucia sink and Huron toilet have a one-year warranty.
