INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With continued strength and stabilization being seen across the housing market as well as improvement in overall remodeling activity, Delta Faucet Company is pleased to showcase its latest design innovations and technologies for the home at the 2013 International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, January 22-24. The Delta ® brand will exhibit its platform of smart solutions, which address the growing trend of technology in the home, especially busy areas such as the kitchen, where added functionality can have significant impact.
"As technology continues to play a significant role in our daily lives, consumers are looking to integrate smart solutions that offer efficiency throughout their home," said Bob Rodenbeck, director of research and development for Delta Faucet. "In the kitchen and the bath, Delta Faucet continues to lead the industry in new product innovations, from our Touch2O® Technology, which allows users to turn their faucets on with a simple tap, to our H 2Okinetic™ Technology, which delivers an even more drenching and satisfying shower without using more water."
Delta kitchen technologies reinvent the user experience Touch 2O Technology continues to improve the way consumers interact with their kitchen faucet by affording precise and reliable control to activate the flow of water exactly when and where it's needed – even when hands are full or messy. In 2013, Touch 2O Technology will continue to serve as a cornerstone to the Delta brand's smart solutions approach with the addition of new styles such as the Cassidy™ collection, which includes faucets featuring the technology.
With Touch 2O Technology, once the manual handle is moved to an on position users can simply tap anywhere on the spout, hub or handle of the faucet to turn on and off the water stream. Touch 2O Technology makes it easier to turn on the water flow when hands are messy or turn off the water when it is not needed between tasks, potentially helping to save water. It also reduces the potential for cross-contamination while keeping the faucet cleaner.Many Delta kitchen faucets with Touch 2O Technology also feature other Delta product innovations, including MagnaTite ® docking, which keeps pull-down spray wands firmly in place when not in use by using a powerful integrated magnet, and DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, ensuring "like new" operation for the life of the faucet. Delta Faucet brings new innovations to the bath Delta H 2Okinetic showers help create the feeling of more water without using more water. This technology can now be found in the brand's new In2ition ® two-in-one showers. In2tition showers with H 2Okinetic technology feature a detachable hand shower, which can run separately or simultaneously with the fixed showerhead, giving the user the comfort of water streaming from the showerhead in any position and the flexibility to accomplish other tasks, such as bathing children, washing pets and cleaning the shower. Also on display at this year's show will be working lavatory faucets with Touch 2O .xt ™ Technology, the brand's latest bathroom advancement. Touch 2O .xt Technology unites Delta Touch 2 O Technology with hands-free sensing. An available option on lavatory faucets in the Addison ® and Lahara ® bath collections, users can touch it on and touch it off, or have an entirely hands-free experience.
