On the Road - Moen

If you design kitchens and baths, you know there's a process to sketching out ideas. At Moen, their sketches build the products you put in your final designs.

MotionSense Advanced sensors built into new MotionSense faucets can detect movement in two sensing zones. In addition to placing hands or an object below the faucet to trigger the "Ready Sensor" at the base, a "Wave Sensor" on top of the faucet can start and stop the flow of water with a simple hand motion. With the hands-free technology, users can all but eliminate the need to touch the faucet. MotionSense also helps users save water, since it only comes on when an object is within the sensing zone, and will turn off automatically if the water is accidentally left running. MotionSense is initially available on the Arbor pulldown kitchen faucet in chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, and Spot Resist Stainless finishes. Available in Fall 2012.

Voss Collection If a design can be simultaneously classic and trendy, Voss is it. The transitional bathroom collection includes two-handle widespread, centerset, and wall-mount faucets, a single-handle faucet, a range of Roman tub faucets, a 6-inch rainshower and trim packages, a handheld showerhead and slidebar, and several accessories. Designed to meet WaterSense criteria, each lav faucet and the Eco-Performance showerhead offer water savings up to 32%. The rainshower features self-pressurizing Immersion technology to increase the force and flow of water delivery for a satisfying shower. Behind the walls, the widespread and wall-mount faucets, tub/shower combinations, and Roman tub faucets all feature the maker's M-PACT common valve system for easy installation and replacement.

Caldwell Collection The full-line Caldwell Collection lets homeowners showcase one style consistently throughout all the kitchen and bath spaces in their home. Two-handle and high-arc kitchen faucets feature the Quick Connect system for easy installation. The kitchen offering also includes a double-bowl 20-gauge stainless steel sink with an offset D-shaped bowl design, Sound Shield undercoating, and drop-in or undermount installation options. In the bath, choose from a range of two-handle faucets, multifunction wall-mount and handheld showerheads, tub/shower combinations, and Roman tub faucets. A full collection of accessories is also available. Caldwell is sold through Lowe's stores.

Boardwalk Collection Available at Lowe's, the Boardwalk bath collection reflects classic Art Deco styling with a modern twist. The collection includes two-handle centerset and widespread lav faucets, tub and shower fixutres, and a complete accessory collection, all of which take advantage of low-arc spouts, squared-off linear edges, and elegant lever handles. Each faucet is WaterCense certified with a 1.5 gallon-per-minute (gpm) flow rate, saving 32% more water than standard 2.2 gpm aerators.

Matte Black Finish Complement the comeback of black and black/stainless kitchen appliances with a dramatic matte black kitchen faucet. The new finish is now available on the Arbor and Ascent kitchen collections to coordinate with a variety of décor options. Learn more about Arbor and Ascent on moen.com.

Reflex System Get a better range of motion from kitchen faucets outfitted with the new Reflex System. The system features an ultra-flexible hose for better maneuverability, as well as a ball-swivel joint between the hose and the wand, which lets the wand move as easily as the user's hand and wrist. The hose length has also been enhanced, putting clean-up and other tasks around the sink, such as filling pots and watering plants, within easy reach. Smooth retraction means the hose won't kink or catch inside the faucet, and the sprayer will dock securely when not in use. Find the Reflex System on a range of Moen pulldown faucets, including Benton and Haysfield styles available at Home Depot.

Twist Handheld Shower The convenience of a handshower is enhanced with Moen's Twist design. By swiveling the showerhead around the handle with the push of a thumb pad, users can take advantage of four different spray patterns. The patterns include Immerse for a full-coverage, soaking spray; Soothe with a relaxing heavy mist; the soft, yet heavy Drench ideal for bathing kids and pets; and Shine, a strong, focused spray perfect for cleaning the tub or shower. The sensible design stops spraying between settings so users aren't surprised by errant shots of water. Easy to install, Twist is available in three finishes. The Eco-Performance model flows at just 2 gallons per minute for water savings.
