KALLISTA INTRODUCES ONE™ AND QUINCY™ POT FILLERS

KOHLER, Wis. (May 7, 2007) - Kallista, leading provider of luxury plumbing products, featured two pot filler designs at the 2007 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. More than ever, kitchens have become the place to congregate, and budding culinary novices and skilled aficionados alike are designing their kitchens with cooking in mind. From state-of-the-art equipment to breathtaking interior design, kitchens have taken on an important persona within the home, inspired by individual taste and lifestyle.

To complement its fashionable line of kitchen and bar faucets, Kallista introduced two new pot fillers, the minimally designed One™ pot filler and the transitionally inspired Quincy™ pot filler. The elegant designs are fitted with an innovative joint that is sleek and unobtrusive, maximizing water flow for filling containers as well as delivering strength through solid brass construction, withstanding deterioration even after thousands of cycles. This unique joint is patent pending and exclusive to Kallista, allowing the pot fillers to retract almost flush to the wall or deck area when not in use. Both models offer quarter-turn ceramic disc valves, which eliminate spout dripping and guarantee durability, while the anti-rotational flange design simplifies installation and improves installation aesthetics to wall-mount styles.

While wall-mount pot fillers have been available for some time, the installation process is usually limited to either new construction or remodeling projects because access to the wall is needed in order to run water supply pipes. The innovative deck-mount configuration overcomes this limitation, allowing supply pipes to run behind or inside existing kitchen cabinetry making it ideal for island installations or remodeling projects by significantly reducing the disturbance of surrounding areas.

The Quincy™ wall and deck mount designs have an overall reach of 25 inches while the One™ wall and deck mount designs have an overall reach of 26 inches when fully extended. Three finishes, Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver and Brushed Nickel, complement the look and feel of a range of kitchen designs.
