“We’re honored to receive this recognition from such a prestigious publication."
Studio City, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Caroma®, the worldwide leader in high efficiency dual-flush toilets for commercial and residential use, was recognized by BUILDING PRODUCTS Magazine for representing the best new products that contribute to green-built homes-- products that bring the most value to builders, remodelers, architects, or their clients. Caroma was the recipient of the magazine's third annual, Green Product Award for their Profile Smart-- a unique bath product that integrates a hand-washing basin and faucet with a dual-flush toilet.
Winners were judged on their green and sustainable attributes, including but not limited to energy efficiency, resource efficiency, and/or health and comfort. Each product was also evaluated on its innovation and overall value to residential construction professionals employing green building practices. The winners will be featured in the Fall 2010 issue of BUILDING PRODUCTS Magazine and on ebuild.com.
"We're honored to receive this recognition from such a prestigious publication," said Derek Kirkpatrick, Caroma North America General Manager. "Caroma has been a tireless supporter of sustainable technologies for more than 70 years, and we look forward to strengthening our commitment to changing the way bathroom water is used and conserved."
"With the sustainable building movement going strong, the market has been flooded with green-labeled products," said Jean Dimeo, editorial director for BUILDING PRODUCTS and its website, ebuild.com. "The winners of the annual Green Product Awards stand out from the pack by not only contributing to an environmentally friendly, durable or healthy home, but also by boasting innovative features, eye-catching aesthetics, or other valuable benefits to the contractor and the consumer."
The Profile Smart is a multi-purpose fixture for the bathroom that combines a hand-wash basin and faucet with a dual-flush toilet for the ultimate in water conservation. After using the toilet, the system directs fresh water through the integrated faucet for washing hands. The water then drains into the toilet tank where it remains until it is used for the next flush. In addition to the high efficiency dual-flush technology featured in the Profile Smart, the fixture also creates a sustainable use for sink water that typically goes down the drain.
Founded in 1941, Caroma® remains the world leader in quality and innovative bathroom products. In 1982, Caroma revolutionized bathroom water conservation by introducing the first dual-flush toilet system to the world. By leading the industry with 47 WaterSense® certified toilets, more than any company in the market, and providing water conserving toilet and urinal solutions to residential and commercial markets, the award-winning Caroma products help preserve the world's most valuable resource - water. Combining quality, water saving innovations, aesthetic appeal and superior customer service, Caroma has been chosen by businesses and households worldwide for exceptional performance and stylish designs.
