You'll be able to get in and out of the tub without exerting yourself or risking injury or a fall.

Enjoy Safe Water Temperature Every Time With HotStop

{mosimage} Each year thousands of children and adults are severely injured by scalding tap water. In fact, tap water scalds are the second most common cause of severe burn injuries among people of all ages. But now a new product line from American Valve called HotStop Scald Prevention Faucets, Tub Spouts & Showerheads aims to decrease those numbers worldwide.

How does HotStop work? When hot water reaches an unsafe temperature HotStop quickly reduces the water flow to a trickle to avoid scalding. Once the water in the line cools the flow re-starts automatically. The entire process usually takes less than 30 seconds.

All you have to do to protect your family from the dangers of shower and faucet scalding accidents is to replace your current shower head and bathtub faucet HotStop products. HotStop installs in just a few minutes, and you don’t need any special tools or expertise in plumbing to swap your current tub and shower hardware for HotStop pieces.
HotStop showerheads and tub spouts are UL listed and ASSE 1062 approved. Available products include an anti-scald tub spout, hand shower, shower head, and shower head and tub spout with diverter.

Enhance Your Bathroom Design With Solatube Daylighting System

{mosimage}One of the biggest challenges with bathroom design is coming up with a solution to the problem of providing a sufficient amount of natural light in a relatively small interior location. The Solatube Daylighting System is an excellent way to bring much-needed light into the design of bathrooms of all sizes and styles. Bathroom design can be particularly challenging when it comes to making sure there is sufficient lighting, simply because most bathrooms have few, if any, windows that allow light to filter in.

In response to the demand for both function and style in bathroom, design, has introduced Solatube Designer Touches, a premium accessory line for the Solatube Daylighting System. “We recognize that adding daylight to an interior space should add both function and design,” said Robert Westfall Jr., Solatube International's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With Solatube Designer Touches, it is possible to use daylighting with more style and impact than previously possible.”

See Yourself in a Better Light With Kichler BeautyWraps Lighting Design

{mosimage}Making smart decisions about incorporating lighting into your bathroom design can make a huge difference in the way you see yourself. With BeautyWraps bathroom lighting by Kichler, you can easily see yourself more clearly in the bathroom mirror.

The side lighting incorporated into Kichler’s BeautyWraps eliminates the problem of dealing with the negative aspects of top mounted lighting. When your bathroom design features only top lighting above the mirror, all of your facial flaws are accentuated when you look in the mirror. The lines on your face look deeper, and your reflection is in shadow.

“If you want to see your true self, and a more flattering self at that, then you need lighting on each side of your face,” explains Tony Davidson, president and CEO of Kichler Lighting. Kichler’s beautiful and elegant BeautyWraps fixtures provide the most flattering type of lighting for any bathroom design.

Kichler BeautyWraps fixtures are easy to install, so it can be simple to improve the lighting design in your bathroom. Each fixture includes a top-mounted lighting fixture that comes with matching mini pendant lights on each side. It can be installed directly onto your existing top mounted light fixture.

“If your bathroom mirror is too large to have a sconce mounted on each side, BeautyWraps’ pendants can hang in front of the mirror,” says Davidson. “The mirror’s reflection further enhances the beauty of the pendants and the light’s soft effects.”

The Kichler BeautyWraps fixtures are available in three finishes:
