Glossary of Terms

Looking around the American Standard website or at a brochure and see a term you’re not familiar with? You’ll probably find it here.

Word Search:

Screwdriver Stops: Shut off valves built into the brass body of the bath/shower unit (if you need to work on the unit you turn the water off at the body instead of shutting off your whole house.)

Seam Cover: Used with several Stallbrook urinals installed side by side to create a seamless appearance. It is installed between each fixture, so that it creates the "look" of one large fixture.

Spud: A threaded waterway assembly inserted into the fixture for assembly of valves or trim. (Back spud - pipes are concealed behind wall. Top spud - pipes are exposed.)

Static Pressure: The pressure at the valve inlet that is exerted under a "no flow" condition.

Strainer: Device used to trap foreign materials, preventing blockage of the water passageway in urinals, or sinks.
