KALLISTA EXPANDS THE ONE COLLECTION WITH NEW KITCHEN COMPONENTS

Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, expands the One Collection kitchen series at the 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Atlanta.  Adding to its already established and highly successful line of bath and showering products, One now fully expands into the kitchen with a versatile assortment of sophisticated designs. 

The minimalist styling and diverse product range continue the collection’s strength of offering with kitchen, pull-down, deck- and wall-mounted bridge and entertainment faucets, sidespray, and soap dispenser.  The designs coordinate with the One deck- and wall-mounted potfillers and are offered in Chrome, Nickel Silver, and Brushed Nickel.

Constructed from solid brass, the faucet designs feature in the deck joystick valving to provide precise temperature and flow adjustment and with a low profile that is visually appealing.  For ease of installation, the faucets are manufactured with an installation ring and flexible inlet connections.  Kallista utilizes the finest valves in all its faucets to ensure years of maintenance-free use.  Featuring diamond-hard, ceramic discs instead of conventional seat washers assure that the installation will be leak-free even in the hardest water conditions.

The pull-down faucet has an integral sprayhead that provides both laminar flow and spray functions at the touch of a button.  It is ergonomically designed and offers superior functionality with an impressive 9-9/16” spout reach.  The sprayhead snaps back into the spout cleanly when not in use. 

The kitchen faucet has an 8-15/16” spout reach and is constructed with a light, quiet nylon hose with ball joint configuration and features a high-spout design with 360 degree rotation to accommodate even the tallest pots.  A complementing, high-spout entertainment faucet offers a comparable scaled 5-15/16” spout reach.

The sidespray complements deck-mounted faucets including bridge styles.  It features flexible connections and quick-connect fittings for easy installation, with a greater thread to allow the sprayhead to accommodate up to a 2-1/2” countertop thickness.  The brass sprayface nozzles resist mineral build-up and a non-metallic hose and ball joint for quiet, light operation.  The sidespray securely snaps back into escutcheon when not in use.  The sidespray easily connects to the One deck-mounted bridge faucet and One kitchen faucet.

Rounding out the collection is a soap/lotion dispenser with a large, 16 ounce capacity bottle that is refillable from above the counter.  Greater thread allows the dispenser to be installed to accommodate up to a 2-1/2” counter thickness.
