According to studies conducted by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), the Middle East is one of the globes highest consumers of water per capita. The Vas ceramic faucet line consumes just 5.68 litres of water per minute (L/min) compared to traditional faucets that consume an average 8.32 L/min, saving approximately 45% of water consumption.
This not only offers obvious environmental water saving benefits for users, but also has the added advantage of reduced utility bill overheads. The Vas provides ROI after just three years and nine months of average use, effectively paying for its own purchase & installation costs, and actually making money for purchasers thereafter.
Without any change in routine, the water conserving Vas ceramic faucet line will allow regional consumers to assist conservation efforts to reduce water usage, by saving about 57,816 litres of water every year, whilst instilling the beauty & tranquillity of an art gallery into any bathroom it is ‘exhibited’.
The base solid-colour model has a pitcher-like vitreous china spout that provides graceful water flow for a peaceful environment; a sculpted, curved handle that resembles a drooping flower stem; and washerless ceramic valving that ensures reliable performance.
The Vas is also available in three painted high design pieces – Cerana, Imperial Blue and Silkweave – for those requiring a bathroom more reminiscent of the Tate Modern than a restroom.
With a rhythmic pattern of honeybees in flight, the Cerana design brings a touch of whimsical sophistication to the Vas lavatory faucet. Each faucet is individually crafted in rich browns and golds, creating a jewel-like tapestry.
Inspired by a porcelain vase created during the Yung Lo reign of the Ming dynasty, the blue-and-white floral motif of the Imperial Blue design portrays traditional strength and wisdom.
Drawing inspiration from Japanese silk-screens, the Silkweave design flawlessly depicts an intricate geometric pattern with a delicate contrast of Tea Green™, blue and white, highlighted with fine platinum threads.
All models have Kohler ceramic disc valves and premium materials provide durability and reliability, and a high-temperature limit stop safety feature makes it easy to preset a maximum temperature to prevent scalding.
