TORONTO, ON - Expanding the availability of the popular AddisonTM Bath Collection, Delta Faucet introduces the Addison Kitchen Collection, an offering of faucets that combines graceful design with smart functionality.  Inspired by the fluted scallops of a seashell, Addison's delicate curves add a romantic touch with a subtle hint of Art Deco design. Its innovative technologies help users work smarter and save water.

As consumers increasingly seek to conserve water and energy, the Addison Collection meets their needs with a Multi-FlowTM pull-down wand, providing a way to save water without sacrificing performance.  The Multi-Flow wand allows the user to toggle easily between spray and stream functionality.  For ordinary tasks, the standard flow rate is a water-efficient 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) for both modes, a savings of up to 32 percent above industry standard 2.2 gpm in the kitchen. A simple push button on the underside of the wand increases the aerated stream flow from water-efficient to full flow when more water is needed to fill pots, vases and sinks. The user can easily press the toggle button to return to the standard 1.5 flow rate. 

"Homeowners are concerned about saving water," said Anita Griffin, Canadian brand manager for Delta Faucet. "Yet some kitchen tasks require a higher flow for speed and convenience, so the Multi-Flow wand gives people the option to increase the flow when needed and save water the rest of the time."


Touch2O® Technology

The Addison Pull-Down Kitchen faucet offers an option available with Delta Faucet's intuitive Touch2OÒ Technology, which allows the homeowner to start and stop the flow of water with just a simple tap anywhere on the spout or the handle.  Touch2O Technology makes it easier to turn on the water flow when hands are messy or turn off the water when it is not needed between tasks, saving water. 

Addison operates manually as well as with Touch2O functionality, while the handle adjusts flow rate and temperature. A blue LED light indicates when Touch2O Technology is engaged, and turns red when the batteries need to be replaced.

Magnetic Docking System

The Addison pull-down wand features Delta Faucet‘s exclusive MagnaTiteÒ docking that intuitively engages the spray head to its docked position with a powerful magnet, helping to keep the faucet and kitchen looking neat and orderly.

 

DIAMOND® Seal Technology

Addison also features Delta Faucet's patented DIAMOND® Seal Technology, a breakthrough faucet innovation comprised of a diamond-coated valve and one-piece InnoFlex® waterways. The DIAMOND valve has been tested to last up to 10 times longer than the industry standard* and ensures "like new" operation for life.

The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. All the parts needed for installation are in the box. InnoFlex waterways connect directly onto hot and cold water shut off valves, so there are no additional supply lines or connections to purchase.

Touch-Clean®

The Delta Faucet Touch-Clean system adds more convenience to the Addison kitchen faucet.  Soft rubber spray holes allow users to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger, helping keep the spray face looking clean.

 

*Industry standard is based on ASME 112.18.1 = 500,000 cycles.

 

Availability

The Addison Kitchen Collection includes a pull-down kitchen faucet and a pull-down bar/prep faucet, both available with Touch2O Technology or with standard manual operation.  Offered in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless and Venetian Bronze®, the collection also includes a matching soap dispenser.  The Addison Kitchen Collection will be available in November 2010.
