TORONTO, April 8 /CNW/ - Premium sink manufacturer Blanco, will introduce
a new line of European coloured faucets at design shows this spring. The
faucets are designed to complement the company's range of Silgranit stone
sinks which are available in seven colours and more than 100 models.
Silgranit, a patented composite material made of 80 percent natural granite,
is Canada's leading coloured sink brand.
Until now, Blanco had offered a small selection of coloured faucets in
its most popular Silgranit sink colours, Anthracite and White. However the
rapid growth in popularity and sales of Silgranit sinks in recent years has
prompted the company to expand its selection of faucets to offer a higher-end
faucet model in the full colour range.
"Our Silgranit sink sales continue to grow and there is a very high level
of customer satisfaction for this product line as well," says Alexandra
Marshall, director of marketing for Blanco Canada. "Not only is there strong
appeal in the natural beauty of the material, the fact that Silgranit is a
scratch-proof material as well as exceptionally heat, stain and
chip-resistant, makes it the most durable sink available and great long-term
One of the company's most popular faucet models, the contemporary ALTA
pull-out spray faucet, will now be available in all seven Silgranit colours in
addition to the current stainless steel and chrome finish options. The colours
are Anthracite, White, Café, Biscotti, Stone Biscuit, Cognac and the company's
newest colour, Silk (grey). As well, a traditional-style faucet in the Blanco
range, the Grace, will be available in Silgranit bronzed café to complement
Silgranit café sinks as well as an alternative to an oil-rubbed bronze finish
Although the new faucets were designed to complement Silgranit sinks,
Blanco will be marketing them as ideal additions to any kitchen sink material.
"This wide range of colours allows the consumer to match up the faucet to
a countertop, backsplash, appliances or other material in their kitchen," adds
Ms. Marshall. "Pairing an Anthracite faucet with a stainless steel sink and
black granite countertop or black appliances, for example, makes a striking
statement in the kitchen."
As well, Blanco is expanding their range of soap dispensers to include a
selection in several of the Silgranit colours. All Blanco faucets are
European-designed and manufactured and built-to-last with solid brass
