Make a Statement with the Align® Kitchen and Bathroom Suites, Now Available in Matte Black

North Olmsted, Ohio… Homeowners and designers alike are giving in to the dark side and are looking for black fixtures to add the finishing touch to kitchens and bathrooms. In response to this demand, Moen has expanded its Align® suite to now offer kitchen faucets, lavatory faucets, tub/showering and accessories in Matte Black.

“Consumers want unique finishes that make a statement. Matte Black offers a contemporary look that complements a variety of décor choices, and allows homeowners to experiment with fresh ideas,” said Julie Everson, wholesale product manager, Moen. “Align is the perfect option for a crisp, modern look.”

The Align collection features chic, cylindrical, geometric shapes that are both stylish and functional. The pulldown kitchen faucets feature a streamlined spout with a two-function pulldown wand, users conveniently can switch the water flow from aerated stream to spray with the push of a button. The optimized handle design offers maximum handle-to-backsplash clearance, assuring a full temperature-range control, even when installed near the backsplash.

The wide array of lavatory faucets provide a perfect solution in many bathroom designs. In particular, the low-profile faucet offers an ideal and sophisticated solution in small spaces. The faucets have been made to accommodate most undermount sink applications, which require the faucet to be mounted further back on the counter.

All Align faucets 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 also deliver the sensational user experience that consumers have come to expect from Moen.

A collection of perfectly matched accessories is available for a finished look. Options include a single robe hook; an exclusive swiveling double robe hook, which allows additional storage capacity; pivoting paper holder; single-post paper holder, which can be mounted vertically or horizontally; hand towel bar; and 18- and 24-inch towel bars.


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 clean-up 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.


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 ± 3°F 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 suite features Moen’s limited lifetime warranty* to ensure superior quality.
