American Standard Sinks, Faucet, Toilets, Tubs, Showers, Whirlpools Guide-Review

Updated on January 8, 2015

American Standard

American Standard is a quintessential North-American enterprise that has expanded from a small shop in the 19th century into a global-scale plumbing company in the 21st. Today, it's in direct competition with such brands as Kohler, Delta Faucet, Moen, Grohe, Price Pfister, and Danze – matching and outmatching most of them, becoming a leading supplier of bathroom and kitchen fixtures in the United States.

As a modern company conscious of its status and responsibility to growth, American Standard continue to innovate (a particularly difficult task in this technologically mature field), introducing implements that save water and effort while increasing comfort and aesthetic values. Stress on hygiene inducing characteristics (repelling bacteria and mold, for instance) becomes yet another crucial pillar in the brand's foundation – one that ensures health standards besides quality and décor.

American Standard selection includes bathroom and kitchen products that range from the smallest – various valves, elbows, bars, and accessories – to the largest – faucets, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, various furniture, and more. The company aims to present a full-solution shopping experience, where customers can equip their homes without the need to look for compliments elsewhere.

Collections and Installation types

Like all contemporary manufacturers, AS categorize their products according to collections, some of which have become more popular than others. Designers strive to distinguish their creations from competition by incorporating fresh, unfamiliar configurations, shapes, and forms, resulting in a situation where no Delta or Moen Faucet will look like American Standard Cadet or Colony spout, and no Kohler sink will resemble Ellisse or Ovaline collections.

Types of sink installations comprise wall mounted, countertop, pedestal, undercounter, and vessel; faucets include classic centerset installation besides widespread, single hole (and control), and wall-mounted collections; toilets arrive in two or one piece tank designs with elongated or round bowls – bidets and the industrial oriented Afwall line complement this lavatory segment. Bathtubs appear in freestanding, integral, deck, and under-mounted variations.

Materials inventory lists nickel, chrome, brass, bronze (blackened, oil rubbed), stainless steel, cast iron, vitreous china, fireclay, glass, acrylic, and other materials, both natural and synthetic.

Product Types

  • Sinks, kitchen and lavatory, constitute a large department of about a hundred of various models made from metal (stainless steel, cast iron) or fire processed materials (glass, fireclay, china), usually prepared for a faucet installation. Kitchen category offers multi-basin designs (suitable for kosher or other cuisines) with a stress on steel, while bathroom sinks mostly come in vitreous china, and other color friendly compounds.

  • Kitchen faucets selection marks the transition to a space often regarded and treated as a workplace by focusing on utility and function oriented implements: faucets with high arches (easy to fill pots and manipulate), complimentary side sprays, professional and semi-pro modern designs, including pull-down versions, and more. Collections include Cadet, Hampton, Pekoe, Williamsburg, and others.

  • In bathroom/lavatory faucets American Standard pay particular attention to aesthetics, offering an assortment of thematically designed items that recreate retro and Victorian epochs, and pay tribute to minimalist, green-conscious, oriental, and other styles. Most fixtures contain ceramic valves and come with a lifetime warranty.

  • Toilets department features over 150 different models, organized according to over a dozen collections. American Standard equip their toilets with gravity or pressure flushing systems carrying different valves that enable a scope of five flush rates. Elongated (also compact) and round, they attach to the floor or the wall, painted in white, black, warm yellowish, and other tones.

  • American Standard Bathtubs, whirlpool or classic in terms of water conduction, cannot emulate some of Kohler's bubble massage technologies – but when it comes to aesthetics and shapes, can easily match any competitor. Types include classic, corner, walk-in, and recessed, categorized into Acrylux, Colony, Evolution, Town Square, Heritage, Princeton, and other collections.

  • Showers/Accessories section accommodates receptors, wall sets, and doors besides shower heads, hand showers, valves, and accessories – an all-round set of implements targeted to provide a complete package bathroom and shower products. Separate products employ trademark FloWise technology.
