BLANCO North America Introduces First Filter-Ready Faucet
Enjoy clean, filtered water effortlessly!
LUMBERTON, NJ / TORONTO, ON, July 2023 — BLANCO, the premium kitchen solutions brand backed by industry-leading German engineering and known for the BLANCO UNIT– a customizable combination of BLANCO sink, faucet and accessories – unveils the new CATRIS Flexo Filter faucet. Expanding its faucet portfolio, BLANCO North America’s first filter-ready faucet offers convenient access to filtered water right at the kitchen water place for drinking, prepping food, filling pots to cook and more.
Designed to optimize workflow at the BLANCO UNIT, the new two-in-one faucet features both filtered and non-filtered water delivery on demand and seamlessly connects to all common water filtration systems. The semi-professional faucet has an insulated pull-down dual spray with a magnetic docking arm that delivers filtered water through a discrete waterspout. Intuitive design integrates two handles – a single lever for tap water located on the right side and a separate dial on the left to easily access cold filtered water.
“With our new filter-ready faucet, BLANCO continues to broaden its span of water place solutions for residential kitchens,” notes Lars Christensen, BLANCO North America’s Vice President of Strategic Portfolio Development & Market Intelligence. “The CATRIS Flexo Filter faucet will streamline access to fresh filtered water for easy convenience, while decluttering the sink deck of beverage faucets for a simplified design.”
The CATRIS Flexo Filter faucet has a height of 18¾” allowing for potential installation below upper cabinets. The CATRIS boasts a 1.5 GPM flow rate for tap water and a 0.7 GPM flow rate for filtered water.
With its beautiful combination of functional elements and modern industrial flair, this sleek faucet will be available in Matte Black, Chrome and PDV steel finishes in September 2023. To build your own Filter Ready BLANCO UNIT, pair the CATRIS Flexo Filter faucet with a BLANCO sink and accessories.
