INDIANAPOLIS - Expanding upon the popular LindenTM kitchen collection, Delta Faucet introduced the LindenTM bath collection to its product continnum in August 2011. Like the Linden tree - a strong, graceful presence in nature - the fixtures in the Linden collection have a strong, graceful presence in the bathroom. Offering a suite of products, including an optional In2ition® two-in-one shower and matching accessories, the transitional style of the Linden collection complements almost any bath.

 

"The Linden kitchen collection has been very popular with homeowners, so we wanted to provide them with the option of featuring the same affordable style in the bath to help create a seamless design throughout the home," said Carol Anne Kemper, Delta brand product manager.

 

The Linden bath collection is available in several different finishes, including the new Champagne BronzeTM finish. The brushed gold tones of the Champagne Bronze finish warm up the bath, while the Venetian Bronze® finish combines the transitional style with old-world charm.

Full collection of products available

The Linden collection will be available in a full range of products, including faucets, showers and accessories to provide a coordinated look. The Linden 17 series showers will feature an option for the In2ition® two-in-one shower. The In2ition shower has an integrated, detachable handshower, which can run separately from or simultaneously with the showerhead, providing the warmth and flexibility of two streams of water at once.

 

WaterSense® Labeled [1]

Delta Faucet Company takes its role as the 2011 WaterSense®Manufacturer Partner of the Year very seriously and is committed to working with the EPA to encourage efficient use of water resources and actively protect the future of our nation's water supply. All WaterSense labeled lavatories of the Linden bath collection provide up to 32 percent water savings over standard lavatory faucets, while the WaterSense labeled showerheads provide up to 40 percent water savings over standard showerheads [2], all without sacrificing the comfort and convenience of the user experience or the durability and life span of the product.

 

CALGreenSM compliant [3]

CALGreen standards require buildings to reduce overall use of potable water within the building by 20 percent. To demonstrate the 20 percent reduction, a performance calculation must either prove a combined reduction from plumbing fixtures, such as the lavatory faucets, showerheads and urinals, or demonstrate that individual products installed provide a 20 percent reduction in flow from the standard flow rate for all faucets. The lavatory faucets in the collection flow at a rate of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), meeting specifications in the bathroom.

 

Touch-Clean® Technology

Touch-Clean soft rubber spray holes allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up from the spray face of your showerhead or handshower with the touch of a finger.

 

H2OkineticTM Showers

H2Okinetic showers look different because they are different. The science behind H2Okinetic technology creates a shower experience like no other. Each showerhead and handshower contains an internal system that sculpts the water into a unique wave pattern, creating a consumer-proven feeling of more water, all without using more water. Showerheads in the Linden collection feature H2Okinetic technology.

 

DIAMONDTM Seal Technology

DIAMOND Seal Technology combines a durable DIAMONDTM Valve with InnoFlex® PEX waterways. The valve requires no lubrication, eliminates wear on seals, and ensures "like new" operation for the life of the faucet, lasting up to 10 times the industry standard [4]. The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. Water does not come in contact with metal surfaces once inside the faucet, meeting all current and upcoming state and national lead free legislation [5].

 

MultiChoice® Universal Valve Trim

Once the MultiChoice rough-in valve is installed, future shower function upgrades or style changes can easily be made without altering the plumbing behind the wall. The Linden bath collection features a single function pressure balance option, or dual-function pressure balance option with a separate volume and temperature control.

 

Variety of available finishes

Products in the collection are available in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless, Champagne BronzeTM and Venetian Bronze® finishes. To find a local dealer, visit: http://www.deltafaucet.com/where-to-buy/index.html.
