MOEN UTILIZES TECHNOLOGY FROM MICROBAN INTERNATIONAL, LTD. TO OFFER BUILT-IN ANTIMICROBIAL PRODUCT PROTECTION ON SELECT FAUCETS

North Olmsted, Ohio... Moen is utilizing technology from Microban International, Ltd., the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, to help keep select kitchen and bathroom faucet finishes visibly cleaner and resist stain-causing bacteria.

High moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms are hot spots for the growth of microbes. For example, on an unprotected surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. To help inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew, Microban* antimicrobial protection will be added into select Moen® bath and kitchen faucet finishes. Microban technologies are engineered to work continuously, even between cleanings, and won't wash off or wear away with normal use, which can help keep the faucet finish cleaner, longer.

"We're always looking for ways to help solve homeowners' problems with innovative products," said Andrea Conroy, director of retail marketing, Moen. "By featuring Microban antimicrobial technology these select faucets, we hope to help homeowners spend more time enjoying their home... and less time cleaning."

The new Ashville™ and Walden™ collections are the first Moen faucets to feature this innovative technology and are sold exclusively at The Home Depot. The Ashville two-handle centerset bathroom faucet ($99)** features sleek lines to create a timeless style. The Walden single-handle kitchen faucet ($159)** includes a sidespray and features traditional styling, inspired by early American country farmhouse fixtures and furnishings. Both products are available in Moen's exclusive Spot Resist™ Stainless finish, which does just as it says, resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain a brilliant finish, and feature a limited lifetime warranty.***
