Delta Faucet Continues To Pave the Way for Innovation in the Kitchen and Bath

Delta Faucet Company showcases its latest technologies at the 2013 International Builders' Show

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With continued strength and stabilization being seen across the housing market as well as improvement in overall remodeling activity, Delta Faucet Company is pleased to showcase its latest design innovations and technologies for the home at the 2013 International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, January 22-24. The Delta® brand will exhibit its platform of smart solutions, which address the growing trend of technology in the home, especially busy areas such as the kitchen, where added functionality can have significant impact.

"As technology continues to play a significant role in our daily lives, consumers are looking to integrate smart solutions that offer efficiency throughout their home," said Bob Rodenbeck, director of research and development for Delta Faucet. "In the kitchen and the bath, Delta Faucet continues to lead the industry in new product innovations, from our Touch2O® Technology, which allows users to turn their faucets on with a simple tap, to our H2Okinetic™ Technology, which delivers an even more drenching and satisfying shower without using more water."

Delta kitchen technologies reinvent the user experience
Touch2O Technology continues to improve the way consumers interact with their kitchen faucet by affording precise and reliable control to activate the flow of water exactly when and where it's needed – even when hands are full or messy. In 2013, Touch2O Technology will continue to serve as a cornerstone to the Delta brand's smart solutions approach with the addition of new styles such as the Cassidy™ collection, which includes faucets featuring the technology.  

With Touch2O Technology, once the manual handle is moved to an on position users can simply tap anywhere on the spout, hub or handle of the faucet to turn on and off the water stream. Touch2O Technology makes it easier to turn on the water flow when hands are messy or turn off the water when it is not needed between tasks, potentially helping to save water. It also reduces the potential for cross-contamination while keeping the faucet cleaner.

Many Delta kitchen faucets with Touch2O Technology also feature other Delta product innovations, including MagnaTite® docking, which keeps pull-down spray wands firmly in place when not in use by using a powerful integrated magnet, and DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, ensuring "like new" operation for the life of the faucet.  

Delta Faucet brings new innovations to the bath
Delta H2Okinetic showers help create the feeling of more water without using more water. This technology can now be found in the brand's new In2ition® two-in-one showers. In2tition showers with H2Okinetic technology feature a detachable hand shower, which can run separately or simultaneously with the fixed showerhead, giving the user the comfort of water streaming from the showerhead in any position and the flexibility to accomplish other tasks, such as bathing children, washing pets and cleaning the shower. 

Also on display at this year's show will be working lavatory faucets with Touch2O.xt Technology, the brand's latest bathroom advancement.  Touch2O.xt Technology unites Delta Touch2O Technology with hands-free sensing. An available option on lavatory faucets in the Addison® and Lahara® bath collections, users can touch it on and touch it off, or have an entirely hands-free experience.

With the arrival of the Big Data revolution, a data professional is expected to master a broad spectrum of complex domains including data processing, mathematics, programming languages, machine learning techniques, and business knowledge. While this mastery is undoubtedly important, this narrow focus on tool usage has divorced many from the imagination required to solve real-world problems. As the demand for analysis increases, the data science community must transform from tool experts to "data...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

As enterprises look to take advantage of the cloud, they need to understand the importance of safeguarding their confidential and sensitive data in cloud environments. Enterprises must protect their data from (i) system administrators who don't need to see the data in the clear and (ii) adversaries who become system administrators from stolen credentials. In short, enterprises must take control of their data: The best way to do this is by using advanced encryption, centralized key management and...

Cryptography has become one of the most underappreciated, misunderstood components of technology. It’s too easy for salespeople to dismiss concerns with three letters that nobody wants to question. ‘Yes, of course, we use AES.’ But what exactly are you trusting to be the ultimate guardian of your data? Let’s face it – you probably don’t know. An organic, grass-fed Kobe steak is a far cry from a Big Mac, but they’re both beef, right? Not exactly. Crypto is the same way. The US government require...
