New kitchen and bath innovations are here that improve health, increase sustainability, and enhance the quality of everyday life.
At the 2017 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, American Standard, DXV and GROHE, introduced new products including a new self-cleaning toilet, a kitchen faucet with a unique hands-free foot control, and a luxury smart bidet toilet loaded with lavish, technologically-advanced features.
"We are pleased to once again showcase the aligned synergies and innovations of the American Standard, DXV, and GROHE brands at KBIS. These iconic plumbing leaders – operating under the LIXIL Americas division – represent sophisticated, inspirational design for consumers, combined with exceptional performance and inventive technologies that continue to raise the standard in the kitchen and bath industry," said Steven Delarge, CEO and president of LIXIL Americas.
- The stylish and affordable American Standard ActiClean toilet combines the power of the exclusive VorMax flushing technology – which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered – with an integrated, user-activated self-cleaning system. Simply press a button, walk away, and let the toilet do the rest – it's that easy.
- The DXV SpaLet AT200 luxury smart toilet offers technologically advanced conveniences such as hands-free flushing, automated lid opening and closing, and heated seat. This state-of-the-art fixture delivers the ultimate in comfort and performance with a completely adjustable two-nozzle water-spray system with integrated air dryer.
- The innovative, easy-to-use and immensely practical GROHE Foot Control Technology allows users to switch the water flow on and off with a tap of the foot on an activation plate installed discreetly in the toe space of the kitchen cabinet. This innovative enhancement frees hands for added maneuverability and helps to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria around the kitchen.
