INDIANAPOLIS - Inspiration from the past often influences designs of the future. Such is true of the Tresa® collection by Brizo®, the fashion faucet brand, with classical, traditional designs inspired by early European fountains. Brizo has expanded its Tresa collection to include a line of kitchen and bar/prep faucets that combine timeless elegance with distinctive design. The collection also introduces Brizo's first bridge kitchen faucet, offering uncompromised aesthetic design and luxurious attention to detail.
"Tresa's design is influenced by ancient water pieces; however, its functionality is all about meeting the needs of modern homeowners," said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Brizo. "The collection comes from the cross-section of distinctive design and inventive technology and is geared toward the traditional-minded homeowner who wants as many options as possible to design a dream room."
Complementing its traditional look, the Tresa collection is built with many of Brizo's exclusive technologies:
Euro-motion DiamondTM valve, featured on the single handle model, uses a smooth layer of diamond embedded onto a ceramic disc to ensure "like new" operation for life. The DIAMONDTM valve will last up to 5 million cycles - which is up to 10 times longer than the industry standard. Water does not come in contact with potential metal contaminants once inside the faucet, meeting current state specific and upcoming national legislation.
One-piece InnoFlex® waterways, for the single handle model, are made from chlorine resistant PEX, the same material used in high end drinking water filtration systems. InnoFlex integrated supply lines can be connected directly to hot and cold shut-off valves. No intermediate riser connections are needed.
Tresa's bridge kitchen with sprayer uses an under-the-deck diverter which eliminates the need for a center post above the deck. The one-piece cast brass waterway on Tresa bridge kitchens and bar/preps delivers a seamless, beautiful aesthetic uninterrupted by the lines from brazed joints or coupling nuts. This also serves to reduce potential leak points and is a perfect example of the level of detail synonymous with Brizo.
The collection offers a full line of traditionally styled kitchen and coordinated bar/prep faucets:
Single handle with and without side spray
Two-handle bridge bar/prep
Two-handle single hole with and without side spray
Two-handle bridge with and without side spray
The Tresa kitchen collection is available in four finishes: Polished Chrome, Venetian Bronze®, Brilliance® Stainless and Brilliance® Brushed Bronze, each available in a limited lifetime warranty.
 Industry standard based on ASME 112.18.1 of 500,000 cycles.
 California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) and Vermont Law No. 193 (S152) and upcoming national legislation mandate that the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces.
