Moen Faucets To Include Microban® Antimicrobial Technology

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Microban International, Ltd., the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, is pleased to announce their partnership with Moen Inc., the #1 faucet brand in North America. In March 2013, Moen will launch two new faucets featuring Microban antimicrobial technology. 

High moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms are hot spots for the growth of microbes. Microban antimicrobial protection will be added into select Moen bath and kitchen faucet finishes to inhibit the growth of damaging bacteria. Microban technologies are engineered to work continuously even between cleanings and won't wash off or wear away.

"Microban antimicrobial protection helps protect the products of leading manufacturers around the world," says Kevin Parrish, VP Business Development for Microban International.  "We're pleased to add Moen faucets to the more than 1,000 products we help make easier to clean and keep cleaner for longer."

The Ashville Centerset bath faucet for $99 and the Walden 1 handle kitchen faucet with Sidespray for $159 will be the first products from Moen with Microban technology to hit the market. Sold exclusively at The Home Depot, Ashville's classic elements flow organically into each other to create a sleek and timeless style. Walden is a classic traditional style inspired by highly functional early American country farmhouse fixtures and furnishings. Both products will be available in March 2013.
