INDIANAPOLIS - The Brizo® Baliza® pull-out kitchen faucet provides homeowners with a high-end kitchen product that blends superior functionality and style. The Baliza faucet, which translates to "beacon" in Portuguese, is the first traditionally-styled pull-out kitchen faucet from the Brizo brand. As its name suggests, the faucet's single-handle lever design is based on the shape and form of a lighthouse.
"Research shows that many consumers still desire a more traditional design in the home. This look, while still decorative in nature, gives a comfortable, warm and inviting feel to any room," said Laura Brooks, Brizo senior brand manager. "The pull-out and pull-down segment is a fast-growing faucet category. The traditional design of the Baliza faucet paired with the functionality of a pull-out wand blends a preferred style category with a functionality that homeowners want."
The Baliza faucet features the first four-function pull-out kitchen faucet in the Brizo collection. It offers spray, stream, volume control and pause functionality. The Baliza faucet is the first pull-out or pull-down kitchen faucet to allow water volume to be controlled from the wand. The unique pause control button allows users to reduce as well as pause water flow, with just a click of a button placed underneath the spout. This feature is ideal when washing multiple food items or rinsing dishes, as it allows the user to control and reduce water flow, as needed, helping to conserve water in the home.
The Baliza faucet features DIAMONDTM Seal Technology, which combines a durable Euro-Motion DIAMOND® Valve (a ceramic cartridge embedded with diamonds) with InnoFlex® PEX waterways. The valve requires no lubrication, eliminates wear on seals, and ensures "like new" operation for life lasting up to 10 times longer than the industry standard. The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. Once inside the faucet, water does not come in contact with potential metal contaminants, meeting current state specific and upcoming national legislation.
The Baliza faucet was the first Brizo product to feature MagneDock® magnetic docking technology, the exclusive Brizo magnetic docking system which easily and intuitively docks the wand to the spout to keep it from dangling, for a consistently clean look. Similar in functionality to magnetic closures found on totes and personal electronics cases, this magnetic connection makes the wand extremely easy to engage and disengage.
The Baliza faucet is offered in Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless, Brilliance® Brushed Bronze and Venetian® Bronze finishes. It was the first Brizo kitchen faucet to be introduced in Brushed Bronze, which gives a rustic yet modernized look, tying into the growing trend of warmer earth tone finishes in kitchen and bathroom decor.
The Baliza faucet comes with an optional escutcheon and a coordinating bud vase, soap dispenser and new dish-cloth hook in all four finishes so homeowners can achieve a coordinated look in the kitchen. Exclusive to the Brizo collection, the unique dish-cloth hook provides a fashionable way to eliminate draping a dish-cloth over the faucet spout.
