MOEN OFFERS BUILDERS AND CONSUMERS STYLISH OPTIONS WITH THE NEW GLYDE™ BATHROOM COLLECTION

North Olmsted, Ohio... Whether you're a homeowner looking for the perfect transitionally styled products for your bath...or a homebuilder looking to diversify your portfolio with stylish, yet affordable offerings, Moen has the answer with the new Glyde™ bathroom collection.

"Transitional designs remain the top-selling choice in bathroom faucets," said Julie Everson, wholesale bath product manager, Moen. "Glyde provides this desirable style at an equally desirable price."

Glyde faucets exude a graceful, simple silhouette with a long spout reach -- enhancing the look, while providing the trusted functionality that homebuyers expect. The showerhead offers a larger diameter for better water coverage; while also featuring a spray face that matches the showerhead finish for a better overall design aesthetic.

The new Glyde bath collection features a variety of Moen® innovations:

1234® Duralast® Cartridge
Two-handle widespread lavatory faucets feature the Moen 1234® 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.

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.

M•PACT® Common Valve System
Featured on the widespread faucets, tub/showering options and Roman tub faucet, 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 system, the water temperature is designed to remain within ± 3°F of the set temperature. For added safety, Moen's temperature limit stops can be set to control maximum hot water temperature.

Pro-Fit® Installation System
The Pro-Fit® Installation System -- available with Glyde accessories -- eliminates set screws for faster, easier mounting. There's even a template with a built-in level.
