New Times Square Bathroom Faucet Collection From American Standard takes the minimalist look to the limit

Faucets for bathroom sinks, showers and bathtubs combine the look of contemporary architecture with faultless performance

Toronto, November 18, 2013:   As you might expect,
the minimalist look is easy to live with.  Its motto is
"Less is more".  Each item in the new Times Square Bathroom Faucet Collection is perfect in itself: together, their clean lines will co-ordinate with any transitional or contemporary setting. Beneath the sleek exterior is the water saving efficiencyand drip-free performance that
are hallmarks of American Standard manufacturing.


“Our consumers tell us that they like collections,”
says Simone Abele, Vice-President Marketing, American Standard.  “For one thing, collections make it easier to create a co-ordinated look when planning a makeover. 
And the larger the collection the more options
homeowners have with their product choice.”.

Bathroom sinks, showers and tubs

Times Square is a comprehensive collection that shares sophisticated geometric shapes, mainly angular but also combined with shapely curves.  All items are available in polished chrome or satin nickel.


The Times Square

widespread sink faucet demonstrates the basic look.  The clean lines are reminiscent of contemporary architecture.  There is
a choice of spout: one continuing the angular look,
the other suggesting the smooth flow of water with
an elegant arc.


The Times Square

single handle faucet comes even closer to architecture; on a larger scale it could be a downtown showpiece. Its single handle provides sensitive adjustment of both temperature and volume.  This control remembers the temperature setting when
it is turned off, and repeats the same temperature when turned back on.


The array of tub and shower faucets offered by the Times Square collection makes
it easy to maintain the architectural "less is more" look while creating a luxurious and functional bath and shower experience.  Consider the striking Times Square deck-mount tub filler, and the Times Square bath/shower trim kit that can incorporate a brass rain showerhead or an adjustable hand-held shower.


The Times Square Collectionis comprehensive, but it may not include every item you’d like to see in your new bathroom. In that case, American Standard recommends their CS Series bathroom accessories.  The CS Series includes two towel bars 18’ ’(457mm) and 24-inch (610mm) lengths, a towel ring, a robe hook, and a toilet paper holder that share the same minimalist look.  In polished chrome or satin nickel finishes.

The style may be minimal, but the performance is maximum.
The quiet good looks of the Times Square collection are backed-up by advanced technologies and convenient features that will help save water, simplify installation and reduce maintenance.


•            The flow rate of all three sink faucets is limited to a water-saving 1.25gpm (5.7L/m), by means of pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent greater savings than standard faucet models. The faucets are WaterSense-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring water savings without sacrificing performance.


•            Water-saving versions of the shower fixtures are also available.  Flow rate is a water-efficient 1.7 gallons per minute (gpm) (7.6L/m)


•            The new Times Square bath and sink faucets incorporate the American Standard                         exclusive pre-assembled metal Speed Connect drain. This innovative system             simplifies drain installation and never needs adjusting. The drain seals tightly and the lift rod comes set to correct height and never works loose.


•            Times Square shower faucets include pressure balance valves that respond instantly             to changes in water pressure. The risk of scalding is reduced, and changes in the             flow rate are barely noticeable.


•            All bath and shower trim in the Times Square Bathroom Faucet Collection is             compatible with TRIMendous universal valve technology. It is therefore easy to upgrade any existing American Standard bath/shower in-wall valve without disturbing tiles.


•            Like all American Standard faucets, the Times Square Bathroom Faucet Collection is             worry-free, drip-free and built to last. The line is Barrier Free B651-12 compliant with             lever handles for ease of use. Every faucet is covered by a limited lifetime warranty             on both function and finish.
