American Standard WaterSense Faucets Go To School

American Standard WaterSense Faucets

One a recent design-build project we used American Standard Faucets certified with the WaterSense label. We were building a green addition for a local non-profit Montessori School and the folks at American Standard were very generous to donate both WaterSense Labeled toilets and faucets. The WaterSense Labeled toilets and faucets were an integral part in creating an environmentally friendly school facility.

Style & Efficiency Collide

When speaking with the folks from American Standard about this project the discussion quickly turned to style vs function. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their WaterSense Labeled fixtures were not only efficient but also stylish. We ended up selecting the Heritage® Gooseneck faucet and the Heritage® Centerset faucet for the new bathrooms.

As you can see from the photos the faucets have a very clean appearance yet they are very stylish. The handles include a very nice red and blue accent around the middle of the handle shaft which makes identifying hot and cold very easy for children and seniors.
