Hands Up: How American Standard is leading the way in touchless technology

Are you tired of coming up with creative ways to avoid touching the faucet or the toilet flush handle?

For years, touchless fixtures have been used in commercial kitchens and public restrooms in order to conserve water and reduce the spread of germs. With American Standard’s touchless technology advancements over the last few years, you can now enjoy the benefits of touchless technology right in your own home. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put our overall health and well-being at risk, touchless technology has the potential to provide you with the convenience and peace of mind necessary in today’s reality.



At American Standard, we have been part of the home for over 150 years, and remain committed to improving the essential spaces - the bathroom and kitchen - in everyone’s day-to-day lives. Whether cooking or cleaning in the kitchen, or after using the bathroom, you might find that your hands are too dirty to turn on the faucet. We believe that touchless technology has the potential to create a cleaner and healthier environment for you and your family, while keeping everyone safe when doing so. Here are some of our popular bath and kitchen fixtures that feature our unique touchless technology, so that you can enjoy more, and worry less.

Touchless Toilets

With a simple hand wave, the Studio Touchless Right Height Elongated Toilet delivers a powerful, no-touch flush. Not only is this toilet coveted for its touchless technology, but it also features our state of the art EverClean surface, innovation that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, and of mold and mildew on the surface. As well, this touchless toilet has the added benefit of being able to be switched to manual mode in the event batteries need to be replaced; simply push and hold the actuator button for a few seconds and you’ll activate the manual flush option. The benefits don’t stop with the technology - at American Standard, we strongly believe that the importance of cleanliness doesn’t compromise aesthetics. By featuring an elongated bowl with a smooth-sided, concealed trapway, this sleek toilet is sure to become a stylish focal point in your bathroom space.



The Cadet Touchless Right Height Elongated Toilet is engineered to outperform and ensure a cleaner, more hygienic bathroom environment. Similar to the Studio Touchless Right Height Elongated Toilet, simply position your hand in front of the sensor to trigger a powerful Cadet flush, a flush favoured for its ability to clear the bowl quickly and completely the first time around. By featuring our WaterSense technology, the Cadet Touchless Toilet allows for ultra-low water consumption, using 20% less water than a regular toilet. Eco-friendly, hygienic and sleek, what’s not to love?



Touchless Faucets

If you’re done with using dirty hands to turn on/off your kitchen faucet, then our Beale Pull Down Kitchen Faucet with Selectronic Hands-Free Technology is the perfect choice for you. Sitting at the forefront of technology, this faucet features our Selectronic touchless faucet system, where a simple wave of the hand turns water on and off. With a sliding sensor door, you can also easily switch to manual mode when desired. Not only does this faucet feature touchless technology, but it also includes two efficient and effective spray patterns with a convenient pause button that will temporarily halt water flow.




Another great touchless kitchen faucet option is our Avery Selectronic Hands-Free Pull Down Kitchen Faucet. Similar to the Beale faucet, the Avery features our exclusive Selectronic hands-free technology, designed to make your daily tasks that much easier. By featuring the Re-Trax spray head system, this faucet allows for smooth and simple operation of the spray head from pull-out to retraction. This faucet was also elegantly designed to offer versatility in appearance, so that it matches virtually any design style preference.
