Moen Enhances M•BITION Medium-Duty Commercial Faucet Line

North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen’s Commercial Division unveils new Eco-Performance models, as well as unique performance enhancements to its M•Bition™ line of single-handle faucets. This collection of medium-duty lavatory faucets now includes three reduced flow rate options, as well as Moen’s Duralast™ ceramic disc cartridge, providing a proprietary cartridge design that offers the smooth feel and reliable operation of a new faucet from the first time you use it to the last.

“Commercial buildings require strong and reliable faucets that are also energy- and water-efficient,” said Mark Knurek, director, marketing and new product development for Moen’s Commercial Division. "M•Bition single-handle lavatory faucets are designed to handle everything from hard water to heavy use, all while helping building owners and managers comply with local water-saving regulations and realize a significant savings on utility bills."

Every M•Bition single-handle lavatory faucet will now feature the Moen Duralast cartridge. Thanks to its innovative engineering and high-quality materials, this proprietary ceramic disc cartridge surpasses conventional durability standards and withstands harsh conditions. With Duralast, faucets offer precise handle control – allowing the user to fine-tune temperature balance. M•Bition also offers an adjustable temperature limit stop with durable brass construction, for unbreakable safe operation and temperature control.

The M•Bition line offers two new flow rates: 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) and 0.5 gpm. The 1.5 gpm Eco-Performance model was designed to meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense® standards for water efficiency and performance; the 0.5 gpm model offers a 77 percent savings from the industry standard 2.2 gpm faucet. A new 0.35 gpm model will also be introduced by the third quarter of 2012 to meet CalGreen standards for water conservation in commercial buildings in the state of California.

Like all Moen products, the M•Bition collection is made from the highest quality materials. The line’s durable chrome finish stands up to industrial strength cleaners and features embedded Hot/Cold indicators that will not scratch off.

M•Bition faucets feature easy-to-use, ADA-compliant three- or four-inch handles, for optimal accessibility in public places. These faucets also feature a choice of 1/2-inch IPS copper supply lines or 3/8-inch compression flexible supply lines. Both supply line options speed up the installation process, eliminating the need for additional connection hardware and decreasing the risk of leaks.

In addition to performance enhancements, the M•Bition line has updated the style of its single-handle faucets by softening sharp angles and eliminating recesses, helping to resist dirt and bacteria buildup and simplify cleaning. A recessed aerator remains in place, preventing opportunities for theft or vandalism.
