Bradley Corp. adds five new finishes to its WashBar series to complement every designer’s vision for washroom design. These durable and environmentally friendly finishes further enhance Bradley’s growing line of WashBar models renowned for their award-winning design and exclusive clean+rinse+dry handwashing functionality.
The finishes are produced with physical vapor deposition (PVD), an advanced process that creates a molecular bond to the fixture, creating a resilient coating that will not corrode or fade. Beginning in early 2021, the WashBar—a single piece, multifunction chrome-plated fixture—will be available with finish options, including Brushed Black Stainless, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Stainless, Brushed Brass and Brushed Bronze, as well as Polished Chrome, which is the original finish for the WashBar series. Whether the washroom design calls for traditional or modern styling—or polished or matte effect—all six finishes improve design flexibility.
In addition to the selection of new finishes, designers may choose among a growing suite of WashBar models. Each model incorporates LED lighting and icons to guide users through an intuitively touch-free handwashing experience, enhancing convenience, hygiene and the overall user experience:
- WashBar: Bradley’s original WashBar model, this all-in-one completely touchless handwashing fixture houses smart soap, water and dryer in one unit. This handwashing functionality may be paired with cast-molded Verge wash basins or prefabricated OmniDecks.
- Next Generation WashBar: This ultra-modern L-shaped design offers WashBar technology with a new profile. With only one connection point to the sink, this design provides more open space for easier cleaning.
- WashBar with Undermount Basins: This flexible model pairs the WashBar with a selection of cast-formed undermount basins made of either Evero natural quartz or Terreon solid surface. An alternative for applications featuring a complex or unique restroom deck design, these basin materials allow designers to create their own customized restroom decks in varying lengths, L-shapes, cut outs or even different countertop materials.
- WashBar Duo: When only soap and water are needed, the Duo offers the perfect solution when there is already a contract for paper towels or another hand drying preference.
Exclusive features for all WashBar models include an efficient 1-gallon soap container that requires fewer refills. Water is dispensed at 0.5 GPM although it is also available with an ultra-high efficiency flow rate of 0.35 GPM when water conservation is a necessity. Using a bowl designed to work with the WashBar keeps water in the bowl to avoid splashing outside the basin onto the floor, walls or user, improving washroom cleanliness and safety.
