Bradley Corp., the industry leader in designing premiere hand washing solutions, has won a 2015 Product Innovation Award (PIA) presented by Architectural Productsmagazine for its new Express® ELX-Series Lavatory System. The ELX-Series incorporates a single bowl, multi-user design that is easy to install and maintain, while offering contoured styling and personal hand washing space.­

The fifth annual PIA Awards program, which determines and honors innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products, recognized the Express ELX-Series in the program’s Restroom Products/Plumbing Category.­ The PIA judging panel, comprised of a diverse body of industry professionals including architects, interior designers, lighting designers and veteran A/E/C writers, ranked the Express ELX-Series among the most outstanding and innovative product solutions used in commercial buildings and institutions.­

Express ELX-Series’ multi-user design earns high marks

A step up from ordinary lavatories – and a contemporary alternative to china sinks and laminate counter tops – the Express ELX-Series is a cost-effective fixture that is easy to specify, install, clean, and maintain. With the look and feel of an individual lav, this streamlined hand washing system provides the economies and conveniences of a group fixture, which accommodates up to three people at one time.

Made of Bradley’s Terreon® Solid Surface material, the Express ELX-Series Lavatory offers superior durability and is easy to repair. In addition, its contemporary contoured design elevates the look of commercial restrooms while being easy to clean. The bowl’s seamless construction eliminates mold and delamination, offering a more hygienic and attractive washroom solution.

Due to its long-term durability and simplified maintenance qualities, the ELX-Series is a cost-effective choice for high-traffic washroom applications, such as schools, retail, recreation centers, municipal office buildings and transit stations.­

The Express ELX-Series Lavatory also cuts down on installation time and costs, and requires few connections and parts. It incorporates a unique mounting plate for faster installation, and requires only a single drain and supply rough-in for new construction, or for an easily installed retrofit.

“We are thrilled to receive the Product Innovation Award for the Express ELX-Series,” said Jon Dommisse, director of global marketing and strategic development for Bradley. “Innovation is the heart and soul of Bradley, and inspires the development of advanced products and technology to better serve our customers. The enhanced style, functionality and efficiencies of the Express ELX-Series represents that ingenuity.”
