The new KWC SAROS range of single-lever kitchen faucets delivers exceptional functionality for the busy, modern kitchen, as well as distinctive styling that fits equally well with both contemporary and traditional spaces. Featuring clean lines, a well-proportioned cylindrical body and an ergonomically designed pull-out spray, KWC SAROS leaves plenty of space underneath the spout, so that even high-sided pans can be manipulated and filled comfortably.
KWC SAROS is hygienic as well, because it is so easy to clean:
The two larger faucets in the line incorporate a practical feature called KWC JETCLEAN™ to reduce lime deposits. As water flows through the pull-out spray, the outlets in its faceplate — made of a soft but resilient material — expand to prevent deposits from accumulating. Any deposits that remain are easily removed, thanks to a quick-fastening mechanism called TAC™ (Turn And Clean™) that permits the faceplate to be unscrewed, cleaned and reinserted, all without tools. Finally, the transitions at the comparatively few joints on the KWC SAROS are seamless and therefore easy to wipe clean, with no protruding edges that might collect dirt.
Logical, safe handling: Designed and manufactured to exacting quality standards, KWC SAROS faucets turn technological innovation into safe and smooth functionality. For example:
All three models operate with a low-profile lever, which uses an innovative sliding mechanism and moves smoothly in three different directions to control flow and temperature. The lever can be positioned on the left, the right or even at the front, depending on user preference.
Water temperature is controlled by pulling the lever forward for colder water, or pushing it away for hot — opposite the way most faucets operate. This new, common-sense feature is designed to protect young children from coming in contact with excessively hot water.
The TouchControl™ feature on the pull-out spray guarantees user safety at all times. Because the spray never becomes hot, there is no danger of being burned.
The KWC faucet 2.5 cartridge with ceramic-disc technology ensures that water flow and temperature can be continuously adjusted with total reliability and safety.
Manufactured by KWC in Unterkulm, Switzerland, the new series consists of three faucets, all with water-saving flow rates of 1.8 gallons per minute maximum at 60 psi (pounds per square inch). KWC SAROS faucets conform to the mandatory requirements in the 2010 California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen).
KWC SAROS Bar Chrome: $482 Splendure™ Stainless Steel: $626
The smallest unit is a bar faucet — with a “reach” (front to back) of 6-1/2 inches — featuring an attractive, gooseneck, swivel-spout design that rotates 160°. The two larger models — a full-sized kitchen faucet (reach: 8-7/8 inches) and a prep faucet (7-3/16 inches) — come equipped with a curved, pull-out spray that nestles so comfortably into the hand, its use is fully intuitive, regardless of its position or function.
Magnetically docked to the 360° swivel spout, the spray extends nearly two feet, while locking tightly back into place with just a click when returned to its fully retracted position. Two spray settings are offered: an aerated Neoperl® Cascade® and a needle spray.
