Aug 1, 2006

Environmentally Conscious Flow Rate Allows Consumers to Conserve Water and Enjoy the Decorative Beauty of a Trough Spout Design from Price Pfister®

Lake Forest, California (August 2006) -  Price Pfister®’s new Architecturally Inspired Ashfield™ Collection offers builders and homeowners the ability to blend a specific architectural design and finish seamlessly throughout a home while also being conscious of water consumption. The Ashfield Single Control Lavatory Faucet was designed to produce a reduction in water usage through the faucet by 27 percent without any compromise to the flow. 

The Ashfield Single Control Lavatory Faucet, which introduces a country-inspired unique pump handle and decorative trough spout, is equipped with a pressure compensating flow restrictor that produces a flow rate under 1.6 gpm (gallons per minute) while maintaining a full, gentle stream. This faucet has the lowest flow rate in the entire Price Pfister catalog of products, with no difference in performance. 

“Standard Price Pfister faucets have flow rates that are just under the 2.2 gpm as mandated by the Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992,” said Sandy Vandall, Vice President of Research and Brand Marketing for the Black & Decker Hardware and Home Improvement Group. “Consumers and builders will be pleasantly surprised that with the full and drenching water flow of the Ashfield Single Control Lavatory Faucet comes the added financial and environmental benefit of water conservation.” 

In addition to the earth-friendly Single Control Lavatory Faucet, the Ashfield Collection offers a high-arc swivel kitchen faucet with a new distinctive upswept handle design. To outfit the tub and shower, the Ashfield Collection provides a 6-inch, self-cleaning “rain can” showerhead with high-arc shower-arm, matching handles and a Quick Trim ™ Wall Flange for easy installation. 

The Ashfield Collection is guaranteed to deliver the perfect complement to any residence – from a quaint cottage to an elegant estate. Newly designed kitchen and bathroom faucets, shower heads and bathroom accessories feature complementary styles and distinctive matching finishes that allow consumers to coordinate their home’s décor with a stylish, unified look throughout. 

The entire Ashfield Collection is available in an array of elegant, richly detailed finishes, such as Polished Chrome, Satin Nickel, Rustic Pewter™, Rustic Bronze™, Tuscan Bronze™ and Oil Rubbed Bronze. Each finish carries a lifetime anti-tarnish warranty. All Price Pfister Ashfield Collection kitchen and bath product suites are backed by the Pforever Warranty, which guarantees both finish and function for the life of the product.
