MOEN EXPANDS THE POPULAR BANBURY® COLLECTION, ADDING NEW ACCESSORY OPTIONS TO BRING SAFETY AND STYLE TO THE BATH

North Olmsted, Ohio...Bathroom remodels are the most popular remodeling project and according to showroom designers, today's discerning homeowners pay attention to every detail. From faucets and lighting...to bath safety and accessories, homeowners want a perfectly matched look. To help achieve these beautiful baths, Moen continues to provide new thoughtfully designed accessories that offer a perfect style and finish match to its popular faucet collections.

Available exclusively at The Home Depot or homedepot.com, Moen is expanding the Banbury® suite to now include bath safety grab bars, as well as two new distinct accessories to provide a more complete and perfectly matching bathroom suite.

Banbury Bath Safety

"When it comes to bath safety, many think it's limited to older adults or those with physical challenges," said Tim Bitterman, marketing director, Moen Accessories. "But safety is really for everyone.'Are seatbelts only for seniors?' 'Are bike helmets just for children?' Of course not. Safety is important for all of us, everywhere...and especially with the slippery surfaces in the bath."

The stylishly designed Banbury bath safety products no longer force homeowners to choose between form and function. With a perfect match to the traditional style of the Banbury suite, an 18-inch Grab Bar is now available and features rubber grip pads for enhanced gripping in the tub or shower. It is made from high-quality, corrosion-resistant material available in Chrome and Brushed Nickel finishes.

Additionally, the Banbury Grab Bar features a 500-pound weight capacity when mounted into a stud and is compatible with Moen SecureMount™ Anchors for a stud-free installation.

Banbury Accessories

While the Banbury bath collection previously offered a robe hook, pivoting paper holder, 18- and 24-inch towel bars, 24-inch double towel bar, tank lever and towel ring, Moen is enhancing the suite to include two new signature items. New accessories include a glass shelf and pivoting mirror and will be offered in three finishes: Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Mediterranean Bronze.

"The Banbury collection is popular with many homeowners due to its timeless styling," said Bitterman. "The newest accessories provide additional functional options to create a stylish, fully matching look throughout the bath -- while seamlessly integrating bath safety."

In addition to the new products, the Banbury family of products includes a variety of kitchen and bathroom faucets, tub and shower faucets and showerheads. Each is featured in the most popular finishes and offers a limited lifetime warranty. For complete product information, visit www.moen.com.
