Just in time for the 2018 baseball season, American Standard recently announced the opening of its customized branded restrooms at Atlanta Braves SunTrust Park.
These branded restrooms exclusively feature American Standard toilets, urinals, sinks, faucets and showerheads, which were selected for their innovative technologies that deliver reliable operation with heavy use, while also saving water and energy costs. In addition, restrooms throughout the ballpark – on the general and club levels, plus employee locker rooms – showcase these same stylish, durable and water-efficient fixtures and faucets.
Located on the main level, these unique women’s and men’s bathrooms include decorative murals that celebrate the American Standard products integrated with popular baseball imagery. The illustrations, which incorporate clever factoids about water use and the ballpark, were created by Midwest artist Adam Turman, whose bold style uniquely blends elements from both storied organizations.
A highlight of a three-year partnership between the iconic plumbing brand and the longest continuously operating franchise in Major League Baseball is the inclusion of official American Standard-branded restrooms in this 41,084-seat sports facility that opened in March 2017.
“Our goal in this exciting new partnership was to provide a more comfortable experience for the fans while helping the organization to save money through the durable and water-efficient commercial bathroom fixtures and faucets from American Standard,” said Chris Brown, vice president of sales for LIXIL Americas, the division under which American Standard operates. “Our comprehensive commercial product offerings are built to withstand the high-traffic use they will receive in SunTrust Park for years to come, while providing high-style to this modern sports facility.”
The men’s and women’s restrooms in SunTrust Park showcase several innovative American Standard faucets and fixtures designed to provide optimum performance:
- Pillar tap metering faucets with an extended spout, which are ADA-compliant and feature easy push-on operation and an automatic shut-off after every 10-second water flow cycle with a 0.5 gallons per minute (gpm) pressure-compensating spray.
- Durable Lucerne wall-mounted sinks featuring a “D”-shaped bowl that prevents side splashing and a contoured back for more wash space.
- High performance Afwall Millennium FloWise elongated wall-hung toilets matched with 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) manual flush valves that provide powerful flushing along with water conserving operation.
- WaterSense-certified ultra high-efficiency Washbrook FloWise universal urinals – operating with a manual flush valve using only 0.125 gpf – were outfitted in the men’s restrooms. In high-use facilities like SunTrust Park, this urinal and flush valve combination can reduce water consumption by 87 percent versus traditional urinals.
