Ace Hardware Introduces Faucets with Hassle-Free Installation and Performance that Lasts a Lifetime
Speed Connect® Drain and WaterSense®-Certified Faucets among the New American Standard Kitchen, Bath, Shower Faucet Styles, Features Now Available at Ace Hardware
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 18, 2011) — More than two dozen high-performance kitchen and bathroom faucets featuring industry-leading technology from American Standard are now available at select Ace Hardware stores.
American Standard offers homeowners and remodelers a variety of today’s most popular features in the widest array of styles and profiles in the industry, including water-saving fixtures that feature drip-free ceramic disc valves, easy installation and a lifetime warranty on faucet function and finish.
All American Standard® bathroom faucets incorporate the innovative Speed Connect® drain,which can be installed without special tools in a fraction of the time it takes to install other bathroom faucets. The Speed Connect drain assembly has four parts, instead of the 14 different parts used with conventional drains. Even better: the drain seals tight the first time and every time, and the lift rod never comes loose or requires adjusting.
Water Savings without the Sacrifice
All American Standard bathroom faucets incorporate pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard models and are WaterSense®-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring water savings without sacrificing performance. According to EPA estimates, the average U.S. household can save over 500 gallons of water annually by installing WaterSense-certified faucets.
The complete range of lavatory faucets from American Standard are equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of water-saving, drip-free performance, while tub and shower fixtures offer pressure-balance valves to protect against accidental scalding.
Style That Works Better
American Standard kitchen and bathroom faucets marry top performance with innovative style that simplifies everyday tasks such as washing hands, rinsing pasta, or filling pots. All kitchen faucets feature color matched side sprays and complement design-matched tub fillers and bath/showers systems.
Like all American Standard faucets, these kitchen and bathroom fixtures are worry-free, drip-free and built to last. Available finishes include polished chrome and satin nickel, and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
