INDIANAPOLIS - Like the Linden tree - a strong, graceful presence in nature - the faucets in the LindenTM kitchen collection have a strong, graceful presence in the kitchen. The collection offers a variety of designs, including a deck-mount faucet, pull-out faucet and waterfall pull-out faucet. The Linden pull-out faucet models feature Multi-FlowTM functionality, offering consumers a powerhouse for water-efficiency without sacrificing performance.

 

"Transitional in style, the Linden faucet's smooth, simple lines allow it to blend into the décor of most any kitchen," noted Kurt Backlund, Delta brand senior product manager. "The attractive flared wand on the pull-out and waterfall models fits comfortably in the hand."

 

About the Linden® Collection:

 

Multi-FlowTM Technology

Available on the pull-out and waterfall models, the technology enables consumers to toggle easily between spray and stream functionality. For ordinary tasks, the standard flow rate is a water-efficient 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), which saves up to 32 percent over the industry standard 2.2 gpm in the kitchen. A simple push button increases the flow of the aerated stream to a high performance flow of 2.0 gpm when more water is needed to fill pots, vases and sinks. The user can easily press the toggle button, or simply shut the water off, to return to the standard 1.5 gpm flow rate.

 

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. Water does not come in contact with metal surfaces once inside the faucet, meeting all current and upcoming state and national legislation. [2]

 

Availability

The Linden faucet is available in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless and Venetian Bronze® finishes.

 

Features specific to the Linden Waterfall Pull-out faucet

Transitional high-arc pull-out design: A continuous arc starts at the inside of the base and works its way through the wand, bridging the gap between pull-outs and pull-downs. An integrated handle mimics the branches of the linden tree.

 

Features specific to the Linden Deck-mount faucet

Front trigger sprayer with Touch-Clean® Technology: A front trigger allows users to more easily activate the sprayer while holding it comfortably in their hand. Touch-Clean Technology enables the user to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up on the soft rubber spray holes with the touch of a finger.

 

Swivel spout

The Linden deck-mount faucet offers a 120-degree spout swing, giving it the flexibility to move out of the way without interfering with the backsplash.
