Anaheim, California (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Aquatic – the leader in innovative and inspired bathware – today announced that its DuraCore(TM) subway tile tub-shower has been named to the 2014 “100 Best New Products” list published by Professional Remodeler, one of the leading business resources for the remodeling and home improvement market.
Each year, editors at Professional Remodeler evaluate thousands of new residential construction products introduced in the past 12 months – from windows and doors to roofing and flooring, and everything in between – in search of those that are the most innovative and/or represent breakthrough technologies. The magazine identifies the 100 best new products and publishes a list of them in its August print issue as well as online.
“We’re thrilled to have this prestigious publication recognize our subway tile tub-shower as one of the best new products of the year,” said Tom Kobel, Product Manager -- Everyday, Aquatic. “At Aquatic, we take pride in being in touch with lifestyle and industry trends so we can develop products that meet the needs of plumbing professionals, specifying designers and end-users and also give them something to be excited about. Winning this award tells us that we’re doing just that.”
This is the third year in a row that Professional Remodeler has included Aquatic products on its annual best products list. The magazine included Aquatic’s Starla hydrotherapy tub on its 2013 list. Also last year, Professional Builder, a sister publication, selected Aquatic’s exclusive DriftBath(TM) tub for its annual best new products list.
Available in three sizes, Aquatic’s one-piece DuraCoreTM subway tile tub-shower provides the timeless, classic look of ceramic subway tile but with easy installation and low maintenance at an attractive cost. In addition to the tub-showers, Aquatic offers a low-threshold, 36” x 36” x 80” subway tile shower, with more models in development.
Aquatic was inspired to develop these products because ceramic subway tile – first introduced in New York City’s subterranean train stations in the early 1900s – never goes out of style and has been experiencing a resurgence. The new tub-showers and shower are another way to get the same great look without the expense and work required for installing and maintaining tiles and grout. They also enable builders to differentiate their offering from those of competitors and appeal to homeowners who want a striking yet easy-care bathroom.
Designed with comfort and safety in mind, these products can be ordered with reinforcement for later installation of grab bars or with factory-installed grab bars in compliance with FHA and ADA requirements. All subway tile units come with slip resistant flooring and are available in Aquatic stock and premium colors, including the signature DuraCoreTM, ultra-bright, glossy Aquatic White. For more information on the subway tile series, see Aquatic’s earlier product news release.
