PRODUCT SHOWCASE Industrial 1. Royal Flush American Standard says its Traditional Champion 4 one-piece toilet “combines top performance, the simplicity and ease of a one-piece and the classic details of traditional bathroom suites.” The flushing system includes the industry’s widest trap-way and a four-inch accelerator flush valve that eliminates the need for leaky rubber flappers and ongoing replacements. Using American Standard’s exclusive EverClean, the surface inhibits the growth of stain-and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on all exposed surfaces and the color-matched, slow-close seat. The Champion will move a mass 70 percent larger than the industry standard and achieves the highest bulk removal rating of 1,000 grams. To learn more, visit americanstandard-us.com.
