Product of the Month: Watermark Elan Vital 38

Posted in: Product Of The Month by Staff on January 7, 2016


Taking industrial design one step further, Watermark Designs’ new Elan Vital collection combines the utilitarian aesthetic of Industrial Design with the ability to completely customize faucets. Reminiscent of industrial steam pipes, Elan Vital may look as though it was plucked from an 18th century factory, but it has all the modern touches: a 1.5gpm aerator (finished with intricate knurled metal), and the industry’s smallest exposed thermostatic valve used for the shower, giving the cleanest finish for installers plus 2.5 gpm per outlet capability. Elan’s 1/4 turn washerless ceramic disk vaulted lever handles are reminiscent of commercial ball valves, with the words “Hot” and “Cold” engraved into the brass. While Elan offers refined industrial styling, Watermark has also designed the collection to do the impossible: it’s making custom standard. The galvanized pipe and industrial design made of solid brass construction allows for endless customization. With Elan Vital, you literally specify how many elbows you want or need and in which of Watermark Designs 40 finishes you want the finished product. If you prefer a different handle, you can choose from one of Watermark’s 130 designs. A complete collection, Elan Vital is available as a widespread, elevated widespread, single-handle wall mounted, widespread-wall mounted, two-handle wall mounted, bridge wall mount, wall mount, deck mount, floor mount with hand shower and thermostatic shower.
