INDIANAPOLIS, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Close to 90 percent of Americans wish to remain in their homes as they age, according to research conducted by AARP[1]. And, with the youngest Baby Boomers approaching their 50s, the need for universally designed products is increasing. Delta Faucet offers a wide range of bath products that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to enhance safety without compromising style.

"People are living independently in their homes longer than ever before, driving demand for products that allow people to stay in place as they age without institutionalizing their home's decor," said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Delta Faucet Company. "Delta Faucet offers a wide range of bath products that incorporate both design and technological innovations to help keep the home safer, while also appealing to multiple generations."

Some of the diverse universal design solutions from Delta Faucet include:

  • Available this fall, a new line of Delta® bath accessories from will make it even easier to blend function and style in the bath. The Decor Assist™ collection of towel bars, pivoting tissue roll holders and corner shelves meet ADA load requirements when properly installed and are designed to blend in seamlessly through their varying styles and finishes.
  • For adults who may need extra support standing, sitting or moving about their space, Delta Faucet also introduces a new line of ADA-compliant Decorative Grab Bars that are offered in four sizes and styles, including specialty finishes such as Polished Nickel. These bars are offered in lengths of 12- 18-, 24- and 36-inches and are available in traditional, transitional, contemporary round and angular modern design styles.
  • Another option, Delta® two-in-one In2ition® showers with H2Okinetic® technology are an attractive and easy-to-install shower solution that features an integrated shower head and handheld shower in one. When disengaged from the base of the shower head, the hand shower offers users extra flexibility to rinse and wash, while the shower head still affords the all over warmth of a continuous water spray from above. A pause setting allows users to reduce the water flow to a trickle for instances where a full water flow may not be desired. Available in a variety of finish options and styles to suit any decor, installing In2ition showers is a simple way to update the shower to make it stylish and functional for the whole family.
