Danze has been recognized for the following products:
Mid-Town™ Pull-out Faucet in Satin Black – 2017 Platinum Award
The Mid-town Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet is a contemporary design that features just as much function as it does style. The faucet features the brand’s proprietary SnapBack™ Retraction System, combining a specialized under-the-counter Griplock™ weight, a low-friction abrasion proof hose and a spray head that fits comfortably into place every time. The faucet also includes solid brass construction and a ceramic disc valve to ensure durability and reliability. The faucet is perfect as a statement piece on any main or supporting kitchen sink.
South Shore Collection– 2017 Silver Award
The South Shore Collection is perfect complement to today’s contemporary bathroom décor. “The geometric architecture of this collection provides a space-conscious scale with clean, simple lines,” says Katherine Riley, Danze director of marketing. “Due to its thoughtful scale and height, many design professionals and homeowners are gravitating toward South Shore for smaller bathrooms.”
The collection includes a single handle faucet, widespread faucet and tub/shower products. Both faucets include ceramic disc valves to ensure quality and longevity, as well as a 50/50 touch down drain. With its water-saving flow rate of 1.2 gallons per minute (4.5 liters per minute) the products meet the California Energy Commission (CEC) requirements.
Selene Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet– 2017 Silver Award
The Selene faucet from Danze marries the best in beautiful style with the highest standards of performance and technology. For design, the new faucet showcases a dynamic body shape that emanates fluidity and movement. The seamless spray head and simple lines make the faucet an eye-catching fashion statement that can fit well within most any kitchen décor, from traditional to contemporary (and anything in between).
From a functionality and technology standpoint, Selene offers a two-function spray head (spray and stream) that operates at a water efficient rate of 1.75 gallons per minute. One the of product’s standout features is the new proprietary, patented magnetic docking technology. This advancement keeps the spray head consistently tight to the spout. Users can literally feel the pull of the head as it locks itself back into the docking position.
