INDIANAPOLIS - 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 Kurt Backlund, Delta brand senior product manager.  "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.

 

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 longer than the industry standard. [1] The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. In addition, water does not come in contact with metal surfaces once inside the faucet, meeting all current and upcoming state and national legislation. [2]
