ADA compliant
experiment with fresh ideas,” said Garry Scott, vice president, wholesale marketing and brand
development, Moen Canada. “Align is the perfect option for a crisp, modern look.”
The Align collection features chic, cylindrical, geometric shapes for not only a stylish solution –
but a functional one, as well. The pulldown kitchen faucets have a spout designed with a
streamlined appearance. The two-function pulldown wand allows users to switch the water flow
from aerated stream to spray with the push of a button, providing added convenience. Another
thoughtfully designed element is the optimized handle design, for maximum handle-tobacksplash clearance, assuring a full range of temperature control even when installed near
the backsplash. The wide array of lavatory faucets can accommodate many bathroom designs,
and the compact design offers an ideal and sophisticated solution for small spaces.
Additionally, all Align lavatory faucets and Eco-Performance shower fixtures are certified to
meet WaterSense® criteria, meaning the fixtures meet the Environmental Protection Agency's
(EPA) guidelines as environmentally responsible and efficient products. And while conserving
water, they deliver the sensational water experience that consumers have come to expect from
Moen.
A collection of matching accessories is available for a finished look. This includes a single robe
hook; a swiveling double robe hook, which allows additional storage capacity and is exclusive
to the Align collection; a pivoting paper holder; a single-post paper holder, which can be
mounted vertically or horizontally; a hand towel bar; and 18- and 24-inch towel bars.
ALIGN KITCHEN FAUCETS FEATURE A VARIETY OF MOEN® INNOVATIONS:
Power Clean™ Spray Technology
Power Clean™ technology provides 50 percent more spray power versus most Moen pulldown
and pullout faucets without the Power Clean technology, while containing splashing and
minimizing mess. Now, users can clean dishes faster while reducing the amount of residual
water in and around the sink. Greater force means faster cleanup with less water used.
Spot Resist™ Finish
Available in Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist™ finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots to
maintain the brilliance of the fixture.
Reflex® System
Pullout and pulldown kitchen faucets with the Reflex® system offer a self-retracting spray wand
designed to put itself away, while also providing smooth operation, easy maneuverability and
secure docking.
Duralock® Quick-Connect System
The intuitive Duralock® Quick-Connect System uses a proprietary, push-button connector that
makes installing faucets quick, secure and hassle-free – no tools required. A telltale “click”
audibly signals a secure connection.
PRODUCTS IN THE ALIGN BATH COLLECTION OFFER:
1255® Duralast® Cartridge
Single-handle lavatory faucets feature the Moen 1255® Duralast® cartridge, a state-of-the-art
ceramic-disc cartridge that provides a consistently smooth handle feel and the highest levels of
quality and durability for the life of the faucet.
M•PACT® Common Valve System
Featured on the widespread faucets and tub/showering options, Moen’s common valve design
allows for a quick faucet change without replacing plumbing. Simply unscrew the handles and
spout, lift them out and replace with a new style – transforming the space in just minutes. It
works just as easily when replacing shower trim.
Posi-Temp® Valve
Moen pressure-balancing valves adjust automatically to changes in water line pressure –
ensuring constant and comfortable water temperatures. Despite demands elsewhere in the
home, the water temperature is designed to remain within ± 1°C of the set temperature. For
added safety, Moen’s temperature limit stops can be set to control maximum hot water
temperature.
LifeShine® Finish
LifeShine® finishes from Moen are both decorative and durable – they will not tarnish, corrode
or flake off for the life of the product.
Each product within the Align bath suite features Moen’s limited lifetime warranty* to ensure
superior quality.
