American Standard Brands launches Luxury Performance Toilet Collection

Toronto: With the introduction of the Luxury Performance Toilet (LXP) Collection two important trends in the development of American Standard Brands’ Total Bathroom offering unite to set a new standard of achievement.

A new level of luxury is embodied in the eleven newly crafted toilets that comprise the collection. Though each has its own character, they share a common architecture.  “Our design inspiration came from furniture, which is interesting, since chamber pots were often disguised as furniture during the Renaissance,” says Gray Uhl, design director for American Standard Brands.

And a new level of performance, delivered by the best engineered flushing systems available. The challenge was to cut water consumption to the level expected in a Responsible Bathroom while eliminating the possibility of clogs and overflows, and the LXP Collection meets that challenge. 

“The Collection is our response to consumers and designers looking for compact, contemporary profiles in fixtures without sacrificing performance,” says Uhl.

Classic, graceful, timeless

Each LXP toilet is designed to co-ordinate with one of the American Standard or Porcher Collections of bath fixtures, faucets and furniture.  ASB has long been known for its ability to provide a total look in a bathroom – not just major fixtures but storage units, pedestals, showerheads and systems, accessories and faucets. From contemporary to classical, our mission is to bring elegance and performance to your bathroom.

Each toilet is a work of art in itself, with simple lines, expressive of uncompromising performance:

  • Enclosed trapways make a smooth easy-clean exterior possible.
  • The industry’s largest flush valves ensure a powerful clearing action every time.
  • PowerWash™Rim technology pressurizes water to scour the bowl clean.
  • EverClean™surface technology uses antibacterial action to prevent stains, minimize potentially harmful bacteria, and simplify cleaning, for the life of the product.
  • Elongated bowls and Right Height™ design increase comfort in use.
  • Ten-year warranty covers the entire toilet, inside and out.

The Tropic LXP toilet co-ordinates with the popular Tropic Bathroom Collection. The look is casual contemporary, the theme is livable luxury.  With its gentle curves and refined details the Tropic LXP Toilet brings the casual spirit of nature to the most intimate room in your home.
