Speakman Introduces Sensor Kitchen Faucets
Three designs with advanced sensor technology meet today’s consumer needs for hygiene, looks and performance.
Glen Mills, Pa.–Speakman, a manufacturer of premier plumbing products, adds three attractive touchless kitchen faucets to its expanding offering. Sensor faucets have quickly grown in popularity over the past few years as consumers embrace new technologies in their homes and appreciate the convenience and cleanliness they offer, especially in the kitchen.
In today’s world hygiene and safety are more important than ever. Touchless sensor faucets are an easy way to add some peace of mind when it comes to preventing the spread of germs. As the name suggests, touchless – also called handsfree – faucets turn on and off without the need to touch the faucet handle. The faucet gets activated by holding a dish or a hand in front of the sensor, which minimizes the potential of transferring pathogens like E. coli or salmonella onto the faucet when washing dishes or cooking.
The discrete sensor design features one of the smallest yet most reliable sensors available today. Ideal for handwashing and forgetful kids, the built-in advanced technology stops the water flow after two minutes. For any tasks that require more water and to change the temperature, users can operate the faucet with the handle, similar to a standard kitchen faucet.
Pull-down faucets are loved for their easy handling and long reach, and wide and aerated spray options add to both offerings’ functionality. The Neo faucets also feature a boost button to increase the flow rate for filling up large pots.
“Handsfree faucets are not a fad, they are here to stay,” says Adam Horwitz, Chief Marketing Officer. “These new faucets offer genuine Speakman quality: Great designs with proven technology that works.”
There are three new models: the Neo Sensor Pull Down Kitchen Faucet, the Neo Sensor Spring Kitchen Faucet and the Chelsea Sensor Pull Down Kitchen Faucet. Thanks to different finishes, customers will easily find one that fits into their color scheme and kitchen decor. All three faucets are available in Polished Chrome, Stainless Steel and Matte Black; the Neo faucets also come in Brushed Bronze.
The durable brass construction guarantees longevity, even in environments with hard water, while the all-in-one sensor design improves reliability. The superior quality and durability make these faucets the ideal choice not just for residential homes but also for extended-stay hotels. All models are ADA-compliant and offer convenient single hole drop-in installation in decks of up to 2-13/16 inches thickness. Products are available for project specification through major plumbing wholesalers and consumers can purchase them via online retailers.
