M•PRESS Metering Faucets from Moen Commercial

North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen’s Commercial Division announces M•Press™ - a line of metering faucets offering excellent reliability, durability and unparalleled water and energy cost savings. M•Press metering faucets are designed to provide substantial savings, plus trouble-free performance, even in the most demanding commercial environments.

The M•Press faucet contains Moen’s new, proprietary Durameter™ cartridge, a durable brass shell cartridge featuring a silicon-sealed timing mechanism that is completely isolated from the water source to protect it from impurities and clogs, ensuring consistent timing. Pre-set at 10 seconds, the timing does not need to be immediately reset at any pressure, allowing for easy installation and eliminating the frequent maintenance required for most metering faucets. The cartridge’s timing adjustment needle automatically shuts the water off after each use and can be modified from 10 to 60 seconds to suit the needs of any facility.

The M•Press faucet’s pressure-independent design ensures consistent water flow and proper shut-off every time, even if water pressure varies throughout the building. Large waterways eliminate common leaks and jams by allowing line trash to pass. In addition, water pressure will not affect the force required to operate the handle, allowing for a consistent feel and reliable operation throughout the life of the faucet.

“When specifying a faucet for a commercial application, it’s important to choose a model that will provide water efficiency, style and reliable performance for years to come,” said Mark Knurek, director, marketing and new product development for Moen’s Commercial Division. “Moen’s M•Press metering faucets are constructed of the highest quality materials and factory tested to ensure years of water savings and dependable operation.”

Moen’s commercial metering faucets suit a variety of applications and include a four-inch centerset faucet; an eight-inch widespread model; a traditional single mount faucet; or a new modern front-facing style, with an extended reach handle for greater accessibility. M•Press faucets feature an interlocking design that secures the cartridge to the handle hub and fastens the assembly inside the valve body, keeping the handle properly aligned and preventing it from rotating. Optional deckplates are available for the M•Press single-mount designs to eliminate rotation and keep faucets securely in place.

All M•Press faucets feature vandal-resistant aerators, solid brass construction and a chrome finish that resists harsh industrial cleaners. In addition, M•Press faucets feature an updated easy-to-clean design that provides a stylish look for commercial applications. These faucets are fully ADA-compliant.

For additional flexibility, Moen’s 8200 series of M•Dura heavy-duty faucets can also be converted from a manual-style faucet to an M•Press metering faucet (8886) with a quick change of the handle and cartridge from above the deck, using a simple conversion kit (52120).
