Pfister® Brings New Design Styles to Plumber Customers with Launch of Trade-Exclusive Collections

LAKE FOREST, Calif.—February 16, 2016— For over 100 years the trade customer has turned to Pfister for a combination of unbeatable quality, design and value. With the launch of the Avalon™ and Bronson™ Collections Pfister continues to deliver on its promise to the professional trade with enhanced features and fresh versatile styles.

“The development of the new Avalon and Bronson Collections was heavily influenced by the feedback we received from our plumber customers.” said Brett Engelland, product manager for Pfister. “Longer spout lengths, smoother more secure handle attachments and easier installation on under-counter sinks were all upgraded features we wanted to include while still offering the quality and value our customers have come to expect from Pfister.”

Avalon
Pfister’s most popular builder collection gets even better with newly designed lavatory and tub faucets. Avalon has always been known for its pleasing traditional design. The addition of the new products to the Collection, including a single control faucet, offered the opportunity to bring an updated look to traditional American decor.

As part of the redesign, various technical features were upgraded as well. The spout length was increased on both the lavatory and roman tub faucets to provide added flexibility with various installation configurations. The inclusion of thread-down hubs provides a smoother, more secure handle feel while providing a seamless transition from the hub to the base. The tub shower includes Pfister’s SecurePfit™ handle, which threads directly to the tub-shower valve cartridge for significant structural rigidity, a smooth and solid handle feel and a clean flush look. And the single control faucet features an integral high temperature limit stop to prevent accidental scalding.

Bronson
Reacting to consumer preference for strong, clean transitional designs Pfister developed the Bronson family. Bronson gives plumbers more flexibility for upgrades within the Pfister line than ever before.

With its sweeping curves and square design elements Bronson is squarely in line with key trends in transitional interior design. Design highlights include fixed hubs for a smoother, more secure handle feel, cache aerators on lavatory faucets, and a square 6” rain can shower head. This new collection also offers builder-preferred features such as Pfister’s SecurePfit™ handle, which threads directly to the tub-shower valve cartridge for significant structural rigidity, a smooth and solid handle feel and a clean flush look. As with Avalon longer lavatory and roman tub spout lengths are incorporated for added flexibility in various installation configurations.

Both collections will be offered in three finishes, Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Tuscan Bronze.

The Avalon Collection will be released in January 2016 and the Bronson Collection will be available in March 2016 at plumbing distributors nationwide. Visit www.pfisterfaucets.com for more information and pricing.
