Price Pfister® Introduces Stylish And Sophisticated Line Of Quality Handheld Showers

May 5, 2008

Streamlined Functionality and Distinctive Finish Options Combine to Create a Spa-Like Environment in the Home

Lake Forest, California (May 2008) -  Price Pfister is proud to announce the launch of its comprehensive lineup of handheld showers, designed to give consumers luxurious options for water delivery while enhancing the shower experience, to create a spa-like environment in their homes. With the introduction of these new handheld shower applications, Price Pfister is positioned, now more than ever before, to offer a complete suite of products for the entire home. 

These innovative handheld showers can be installed as a primary shower outlet, with the handheld shower replacing a traditional showerhead, or as an addition to a traditional tub/shower or shower-only faucet. The handheld shower packages can be configured in either a slide bar or wall mount format, offering the option of running off a diverter valve or off of its own separate shower valve. This option allows customers and builders to customize the latest in style and finish to meet their needs. 

“The bath has emerged as one of the primary areas of the home where technology must merge seamlessly with comfort, practicality, and beauty, as consumers continue to demand more elegant and sumptuous alternatives,” said Sandy Vandall, Vice President of Commercial Marketing and Communications for the Black & Decker Hardware and Home Improvement Group. “Our new lineup of handheld showers also allows consumers and builders to select upgraded options beyond standard styles and finishes to coordinate with all aspects of bath design.” 

Each Price Pfister handheld shower features the flexibility of three spray functions – full spray, massage spray and a combo spray, to deliver exhilarating mists of water exactly as desired. The system also includes a soft rubber easy-cleaning spray nozzle and a back flow prevention system with dual check valves located inside the base of the handle. This feature deters back flow and eliminates annoying drips. Additionally, each handheld shower comes with a 60-inch metal hose with an anti-twist connection to prevent kinking and is available in a variety of matching finishes to coordinate with the overall décor of your bathroom. 

The new family of hand showers is available in five luxurious finishes: Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Rustic Pewter and Rustic Bronze, thus allowing consumers to match the Price Pfister faucet of their choice to their handheld shower system. Both shower-only and tub/shower configurations are sold without the wall-mounted handle to ensure a harmonized look in your bathroom. As with all Price Pfister products, the new Handheld Shower lineup is backed by the Pforever Warranty, guaranteeing both finish and function for the life of the product. 

Price Pfister, Inc, a Black & Decker company based in Lake Forest, CA, is a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial faucets as well as shower products. In addition, Price Pfister is the largest seller of ceramic disc valve pull-out faucets. Price Pfister products are differentiated by quality and backed by the Pforever Warranty, which covers the finish and function of the product for life.
