INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Building upon its history of innovative technology and design, Delta Faucet is pleased to introduce its latest lineup of products at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), January 20-22 in Las Vegas (booth number N1927).
"As a global leader in kitchen and bath innovation, we're committed to introducing transformative products that improve how people interact with water," said Kurt Backlund, senior director of Delta product marketing. "The products we will introduce this year at KBIS are not only beautifully designed and carefully crafted, they incorporate smart technologies that can improve user experience with greater functionality and performance."
New Delta products and technologies on display at KBIS include:
Toilets with FlushIQ™ Technology: Delta toilets with FlushIQ™ Technology address consumers' leading bathroom concerns with three key innovations in one smart toilet:
- Overflow Protection: A sensor on the back of the bowl monitors the water level and if the level rises to a critical point, the sensor will prevent additional flushes until the issue is resolved.
- Leak Detection: A built-in sensor identifies possible tank leaks, potentially saving money and water. If the water level drops and breaks contact with the sensor, the LED indicator will change to solid yellow the next time the toilet is flushed.
- Touch-Free Flush: A simple wave of the hand can activate the toilet to flush via a strategically-positioned sensor on the tank.
TempSense™ Technology: Available on select faucet models with Touch2O® and Touch2O.xt™ Technologies, the new Delta® TempSense™ Technology features an LED light at the base of the faucet that lets users know when the water has reached the desired temperature by changing from blue, which represents temperatures below 80oF, to deepening shades of magenta as the temperature rises from 80oF to approximately 110oF, to red when the water temperature is greater than 110oF. This new technology will premier on the new Delta Essa™ kitchen and Tesla™ bath collections, as well as on the Compel® bath and Leland® kitchen collections.
Essa™ Kitchen Collection: The new Delta® Essa™ kitchen collection offers a soft contemporary take on a euro design. With subtle detailing accents and modern technologies such as Touch2O® Technology featuring TempAssure™, which allows the faucet to be turned on with a simple tap anywhere on the faucet and provides a visual temperature indication, this collection blends perfectly with contemporary and transitional design and offers enhanced reliability and performance. Additionally, the Essa collection is equipped with MagnaTite® docking, which keeps the kitchen pull-down spray wand firmly in place with a powerful integrated magnet, so it stays docked when not in use.
Tesla™ Bath Collection: Featuring Delta Faucet Company's first joystick lavatory faucet, the Tesla™ Bath Collection is set apart from typical modern design by its divergence from cool, straight lines. Inspired by the uniquely organic shapes found in nature, this soft contemporary collection was created with urban high-rises in mind and goes beyond expectations by lending a spirited sense of the outdoors to any interior. For added convenience, the faucet also offers Touch2O.xt Technology with TempAssure Technology, providing touch and hands-free activation as well as a visual temperature indication.
Odyssey™ Digital Shower Solutions: As the trend of digital innovations in the bath continues to grow, Delta Faucet introduces the Odyssey™ Digital and Odyssey™ XO Digital Shower solutions that allow consumers to control shower function with a user-friendly touch screen panel. Unlike digital shower offerings that require separate access panels, the Odyssey Digital Shower solution installs just like a standard shower and allows maintenance in front of the wall to reduce installation time.
With the Odyssey Digital Shower, every shower function, including temperature and water flow, can be easily activated with the touch screen panel. For showers with multiple outlets, the Odyssey XO Digital Shower allows users to control a combination of showerheads, handshowers, or body sprays and features a Pause/Play functionality to allow users to stop the flow of water easily to perform tasks such as lathering up or shaving, and then return to the same temperature and outlet settings.
