TORONTO, ON - Adding to its offering of traditionally styled faucets, Delta® Faucet introduces the Leland® Pull-Down kitchen faucet, featuring an integrated valve design.  Inspired by the Taj Mahal's simple forms and beautiful lines, the Leland boasts features that give it a modern sophistication, making it perfect for the kitchen with old-world design and 21st Century functionality.

While traditional design remains popular among homeowners, many have expressed a desire for state-of-the-art functionality behind the façade. 

"Forms reminiscent of early 20th Century design continue to be strong in many parts of the country," said Anita Griffin, Canadian brand manager for Delta Faucet.  "But people also want the latest technology, and the Leland is the perfect marriage of those two."

Featuring a new, integrated handle design, the Leland offers a single-hole installation, allowing homeowners to have a clean, uncluttered look, particularly popular with granite, quartz or other solid surface countertops.  With a 2 ½ inch mounting thickness, the Leland can be mounted to most any countertop surface.  For retrofit applications, an optional 8-inch escutcheon is included.

The ergonomic, dual-function spray wand allows users to switch from spray to stream effortlessly.  The wand also features Delta Faucet's exclusive MagnaTite® 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.  A free-moving hose weight ensures consistent, smooth operation of the wand, which slides easily back into place even after being extended the full 38 inches.

DIAMOND® Seal Technology

Leland also features Delta Faucet's patented DIAMOND® Seal Technology, a breakthrough faucet innovation that is 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.

Availability

The Leland Pull-Down faucet is offered in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless and Venetian Bronze® and offers a coordinating soap dispenser.  The newly integrated handle design will be available at Kitchen Showrooms across Canada in November 2010. 

 

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