TORONTO, ON - Inspired by the scalloped shape of seashells, the newest bath collection by Delta® is feminine in form with flowing lines and a striking, high-arc spout silhouette.  The AddisonTM Bath Collection complements any bath, from traditional to modern.

"Smooth, organic lines and a flared seashell motif from the Art Deco period characterize the Addison bath suite," said Anita Griffin, Canadian brand manager for Delta Faucet.  "Our market research demonstrates that consumers appreciate the beauty and romance of the line as well as its universal appeal."

Addison is available in widespread, mini-widespread, centerset and single-handle styles along with single-handle with riser and wall mount lavatories to accommodate vessel sinks.  All flow at a water-saving 1.5 gallons-per-minute (gpm) at 60 pounds-per-square-inch (psi), saving more than 30 per cent of water*.

Coordinating pressure-balance and thermostatic tub/shower options, with a new wall mount handshower, are also offered.  The shower includes either a six-inch or eight-inch raincan showerhead featuring the exclusive H2Okinetic Technology® by Delta.  It creates a warmer, more luxurious shower experience that blankets the body.  Large droplets coupled with drenching water coverage converge and create a private sanctuary designed to revitalize and restore. 

The eight-inch showerhead is for use with the thermostatic shower model and flows at 2.5 gpm. The six-inch is for pressure-balance models and flows at 2.0 gpm.

*Lavatory faucets: flow rate of 1.5 gpm (5.7 L/min) as compared to the ASME.A112.18.1/CSA.B125.1 industry standard of 2.2 gpm (8.3 L/min), which will result in a water savings of up to 32%.

Among the smart features of the shower series is the Delta MultiChoice® Universal valve.  Once the MultiChoice rough is installed, future shower function upgrades or style changes can be made easily without altering the plumbing behind the wall.  One valve offers three options: single-function pressure balance, dual-function pressure balance, and a new dual-function thermostatic valve cartridge.                   

Addison features the exclusive Touch-Clean® Technology from Delta, which incorporates rubber nubbins that permit easy wipe-away of calcium and lime from the spray face of the handshower with the touch of a finger.

The Addison collection also has coordinating accessories including an 18-inch towel bar, 24-inch towel bar, towel ring, robe hook and tissue holder to complete the look in the bath.  In addition, coordinated lighting is available from Progress Lighting.  Available in December 2009, Addison is offered in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless, Aged Pewter and Venetian Bronze® finishes.
