LAS VEGAS, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- First Wave, the design innovation lab at Delta Faucet Company, will unveil the latest selection of kitchen and bath innovations at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) on January 21 - 23 in Las Vegas (Booth #N1933). The brand continues to build upon its transformative lineup of products, from voice-enabled faucets to camouflage-patterned showerheads.

“As a team dedicated to dreaming up new innovations, the First Wave team is constantly seeking ways to change the way consumers think about water,” said Missi Tate, senior marketing manager at Delta Faucet Company. “The products introduced at KBIS this year are both forward-thinking and functional, offering everyday solutions in the kitchen and bath.”

First Wave innovations on display include:

  • Hydrographic Printed Showerheads: Available in Urban Camouflage and Woodland Camouflage patterns, Hydrographic Printed Shower Heads add a touch of adventure to any shower set-up. Complete with three powerful spray settings - a full body spray, invigorating spa spray and shampoo rinsing with massage spray - the new collection installs in just minutes. Touch-Clean® spray holes allow users to quickly and easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with a touch of a finger, so there is no need to soak or use chemical cleaners. All models are WaterSense® labeled and flow at a rate of 1.75 gallons per minute (gpm), providing 20 percent water savings when compared to the industry standard.
  • Precision Powder Room Faucet: An innovation for use in today’s high-end half baths, the line of handwash faucets features a custom pre-set temperature and flow rate of 1.2 gallons per minute to provide consumers the ideal handwashing experience. Complete with Proximity® Sensing Technology, the faucet allows for increased efficiency and simple, sanitary use in the bath, paired with a streamlined “handle-less” aesthetic. More than a motion sensor, the faucet detects electrical impulses in the body, turning on when you are near, and staying on until your handwashing is complete. Employing top of the line technology combined with three striking profiles and a Rough Stainless finish, the Precision Powder Room Faucet complements traditional stainless products, complete with an industrial flare suitable for modern baths.
  • Tap or Talk™ Faucet: Seamlessly paired with Amazon® Alexa® and Google® enabled devices, the Tap or Talk™ Faucet eliminates the need for a handle, putting consumers in complete control with intuitive and fully-customizable touch and voice enabled controls. Managing the use of water via custom programming generates enhanced precision, greater efficiency and less waste. All custom features, including pre-programmed pour amounts, handwashing modes and temperature presets, can be easily adjusted via an intuitive app connected to the device. Equipped with an indicator light that displays current and target temperatures, the Tap or Talk Faucet simplifies time spent in the kitchen.
