PISCATAWAY, N.J., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- American Standard proudly announces that its ActiClean self-cleaning toilet has earned a Gold 2017 A' Design Award in the Bathroom Furniture and Sanitary Ware category. Reflecting a top score in its category, this distinction is awarded to only the highest three percent of designs submitted to this international competition.
Entries in the A' Design Awards are peer reviewed and anonymously judged by an expert jury panel of leading academics, influential press members and established professionals. The revered Gold A' Design distinction designates a top-level product design that provides value, utility, functionality, aesthetics, efficiency, sustainability and performance.
"American Standard has a long and storied history of producing innovative, stylish and high-performance products that raise the standards of comfort that homeowners enjoy in their kitchens and bathrooms," said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer of LIXIL Americas, the global business unit under which American Standard operates.
"To receive recognition of our efforts from an esteemed international competition like the A' Design Award is a true honor for our organization. We are very proud of this well-deserved accolade for our creatively talented product design team."
ActiClean is the self-cleaning toilet that cleans itself and removes stains with the simple press of a button. It employs the power of the exclusive, award-winning VorMax flushing technology – which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered – with a fully integrated, user-activated self-cleaning system. The user simply presses a button, walks away, and the ActiClean system will scour the bowl with cleaning fluid, then soak and rinse for a sparkling clean bowl.
The ActiClean toilet has also been recognized with the 2016 GREEN DOOD DESIGN Award in the Green Products category for its forward-thinking innovation and sustainability.
