TORONTO, Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GREENBUILD -- New product solutions save water, save on installation labor and save on maintenance — a winning trifecta for building owners and homeowners from American Standard Brands, on display this week at the 2011 Greenbuild Expo.


"Water savings is just the beginning," said Jeremy Cressman, vice president of commercial products for American Standard Brands. "Our technology leadership delivers great value in everything that matters from improving room aesthetics to simplifying installation and maintenance."

At exhibition booth number 831N, American Standard Brands introduces these innovative solutions:

  • The artistic new Decorum™ FloWise® high-efficiency urinal sets a higher standard for luxury buildings, clubs and resorts. Decorum uses only 0.5 gallons per flush (gpf), which is 50 percent less water than a standard urinal, meeting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense® program requirements for high performance and water efficiency.

  • Replace a little-used bathtub with a safe, spacious walk-in shower without breaking the bank – or breaking down tile walls. The new Ciencia™ solid surface shower wall and base system is ideal for hotel and home retrofits, easily installed with a simple glue-up installation over existing tile, concrete, or sheetrock. The non-porous surfaces are easy to clean and the surface color runs through the thickness of the material, so stains and scratches can simply be sanded away.

  • Commercial specifiers can now easily select and save on the most popular American Standard® fixtures and flush valve systems in one streamlined process. Thirty-four pairings of commercial urinals, toilets and flush valves are designed to make commercial specifying more efficient. In addition to streamlining the specifying function, this consolidated process helps expedite delivery and paperwork for large volume commercial projects.

  • Saving water in luxurious comfort and style is easier than ever with the Studio® dual flush toilets from American Standard. These luxury performance (LXP™) toilets offer users the choice between a standard 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) for solids or a reduced 1.1 gpf for liquids, meeting WaterSense® criteria for using 20 percent less water than standard models while offering superior flushing performance.

  • The strikingly stylish Lucia™ wall-hung sink has nearly 15 inches of usable storage surface flanking a graceful bowed front bowl. Compact and ADA-compliant, Lucia is perfect for small spaces such as medical offices, hotels, restaurants and condominiums. The sink's upscale and modern appearance is accompanied by an optional vitreous china shroud that offers a polished, clean-looking installation.
