New products for upscale remodels from Blanco, Clark Hall, DCS Fisher & Paykel, The Grillery, and Spark Modern Fires.
Blanco. The maker’s SteelArt brand now includes the Flow centerpiece sink. Featuring MicroEdge technology, the sink’s rim measures just 0.05 inches high, creating the illusion of a flush-mount installation that integrates with the counter surface. Seamless and functional stainless side drainers flow into a streamlined bowl. The Flow sink measures 46 inches long and 20 inches wide, and can be inset into virtually any counter material. 800.451.5782. www.blanco.com.
Clark Hall Iron Doors. The maker’s line of hand-forged wrought iron doors will launch at the 2010 International Builder’s Show in January. The doors will be available in custom designs to suit any home from traditional to contemporary. Designed to be maintenance-free, the doors feature fully insulated panels, stiles, rails, and jambs, as well as a smooth hand finish. QLon Kerf weatherstripping is used around the door and glass openings, and ball-bearing hinges have concealed grese fittings mortised into the door and frame. A five-step automotive paint process applies rust inhibitors. Custom desgined and stock doors are available across products lines and budgets. 877.897.2818. www.clarkhalldoors.com.
DCS Fisher & Paykel. Featuring a more spacious design and modern styling, the DCS DishDrawer Tall boosts the size of the popular DishDrawer. The DishDrawer Tall features a significantly taller top drawer that will fit plates up to 13 inches, as well as a redesigned racking system with vertically adjustable and independent cup racks, and enhanced plate racks that incorporate folding tines. Remodelers will also appreciate a simplified installation process. The Energy Star-rated dishwasher offers a water-saving smaller load option that uses as little as 1.98 gallons of water, compared to 2.6 for a traditional “eco” cycle. www.dcsappliances.com 888.936.7872.
The Grillery. Grillworks Architectural Series built-in grills are designed for fine indoor and outdoor kitchens. Handcrafted in 304 stainless steel, the Architectural 36 and Architectural 48 models offer old world craftsmanship and modern durability. Designed for wood or charcoal grilling, the units have a signature cast aluminum crankwheel system that allows chefs to adjust the height of the cooking surface with the rise and fall of the flames, allowing for up to 30 inches of vertical surface adjustment. V-Channels and a unique juice-catching slant capture flavors for basting and sauce preparation. Each Architectural Series unit is made to order. 202.758.7425. www.thegrillery.com.
Spark Modern Fires. The new Direct Vent Slim 46-inch gas fireplace is designed to hang on the wall, and combines with a 46-by-12-inch viewing area for substantial visual impact. With a depth of only 8 inches, the fireplace offers a lean profile that saves space, installation time, and cost of installation. The unit can be vented through an outside wall or through the roof, and as a hanging unit, does not require extensive cut-outs or framing. The Direct Vent Slim 46 features a porcelain enamel interior, and the maker’s signature fire ribbon is showcased by stainless steel or black satin surrounds. A fully programmable, thermostatic remote is also included. 866.938.3846. www.sparkfires.com.
