Sustainable Solutions International (SSi™) Exhibits At 2012 AIA Conference and Design Expo
SSi™ Ready to Show Architects the Newest in Green Technologies
WASHINGTON — Sustainable Solutions International (SSi™), one of North America’s leading green building product manufacturers and distributors, will be showcasing some of the best and most sustainable products at this year’s AIA Conference and Design Expo, taking place in Washington, D.C., May 17-19 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Known for their own innovative line of faucets marketed under the brand name fluid™, SSi™ will also be showcasing the Caroma® brand of toilets and shower products, as SSi™ is the exclusive distributor of Caroma in North America.
“Architects are our core demographic because they’ve been ahead of the curve as far as understanding the long-term benefits of specifying sustainable products,” said Doug Sproule, COO of Sustainable Solutions International (SSi™). “We are excited to show them our expanded fluid™ line, which now includes shower products as well as kitchen faucets and we will also be showing many new Caroma toilets as well – rounding out the brands’ line here in North America.”
On display at SSi™’s booth, architects will see Caroma’s newest ‘one-piece’ toilets; Sydney and Caravelle – both of which are WaterSense® compliant, virtually unplug-able and each performing at the required HET 1.6/0.8 gallons per flush. They will also have the new Caroma Invisi™ Cube wall facing toilet – this new toilet is a contemporary beauty, combining dual-flush technology with high design. The Invisi™ Series ‘hides’ the plumbing inside the wall in such a way that maintains easy access to the plumbing but takes nothing away from the space-saving and contemporary silhouette. Also on hand, will be the award-winning Profile Smart. The Profile Smart toilet features a sink and toilet cleverly merged into one savvy unit. Smart and functional, after flushing, fresh cold water is directed through the faucet for hand washing and drains into the tank to be used for the next flush. The unit features industry breaking 1.28/0.8 gpf (full flush/half flush) and SmartFlush® water saving technology. Eco and space friendly, the cutting-edge design is the ultimate green toilet choice.
Along with the Caroma toilets, SSi™ will be showcasing the fluid™ line of water-saving faucets. All of fluid™’s faucets are equipped with a flow-regulated aerator to perform at 1.5 gallons-per-minute, a rate that is in keeping with the USGBC’s WaterSense® labeling program. And they’ve recently updated their most popular collections to include single lever wall mounts and thermostatic shower components; providing the most complete collections of sustainable bath products on the market. Their Wisdom, Jovian, Utopia, Penguin and Sublime series all now include single lever wall mount versions.
Imaginatively designed and crafted by artisans, the fluid™ brand is broken into nine collections, which call to mind a different element from nature, art or architecture. From the playful Penguin faucet, named of course after the bird that inspired its shape, to the Wisdom collection which was inspired by ancient Greek architecture, the fluid™ line of sustainable faucets has something for every project.
SSi™ will be exhibiting at booth # 1061.
