The Luxurious Side of Mother Nature

It doesn’t really matter what romantic comedy it is – cause we could probably name a dozen off-hand – where somewhere along in the movie there is a scene where the on-screen couple enthusiastically run in slow motion towards each other, romantically collide, limbs entangled and passionately lock lips as a torrential downpour crashes down upon them.

There is something incredibly romantic about being completely drenched in a rain storm. Allowing the steady streams of rain drops to absorb your body can be an incredibly intimate moment. You can picture it can’t you? Standing in the street, arms stretched open, eyes closed, water soaking every inch of your existence.

We at Speakman® have become absolutely obsessed with this experience. To create a shower head that embodies the luxurious side of Mother Nature. To create a shower head that captures the very essence of Mother Nature.

But to be blunt, we believe that even Mother Nature herself could not conjure clouds perfect enough to produce the heavy rains spilling from the Speakman® Rainstream Rain Shower.

Available in either a round or square frame, the Speakman® Modern Rainstream Rain Shower features 96 individual flood-soaking currents flowing from 12 patented Rainstream spray nozzles. A durable, solid-brass construction ensures that even the unpredictability of the weather will never interrupt your morning monsoon.

captureBut it wasn’t enough, we thought we could do better. We thought we could drive this euphoric experience to a level that has yet to be explored. To create a unit that would provide users with a complete, spa-like experience right in their very own bathroom.

But we also knew the opinions associated with these products. That they’re daunting, expensive and typically require massive bathroom renovations. We thought we could remedy this assumption.

So we tested our engineers to develop an all-in-one bathroom fixture that wouldn’t require an extensive installation, but still provide an outer-worldly bathing experience.

The result…the Speakman Rainstream Waterslide.

sws-1003-bn_waterslide-rainroundThe Rainstream Waterslide features our Modern Rainstream™ Rain Shower with our Neo™ Anystream® hand shower. The Waterslide installs into your shower’s existing water source, meaning you won’t have to completely renovate your established plumbing system. A simple flip of the diverter switch allows you to choose between which setting you prefer. The Neo™ modern hand shower, equipped with Anystream® technology, is attached to an adjustable slide bar which can be easily positioned to your desired preference.

Mother Nature…eat your heart out.

New 2013 Shower and Bath Collections

It was almost a year ago today that Speakman® unveiled their 2012 Shower and Bath Collections at HD Expo in Las Vegas. These stunning new collections featured unique, elegant designs that were never before seen in Speakman® fixtures. And more over, these collections displayed our venture in the world of luxury bathroom faucets and bathroom accessories. These collections were created to allow designers, consumers, and contractors alike to completely model a bathroom with cohesively designed fixtures from a brand that has been trusted for both quality and performance for nearly 145 years.

The response was overwhelming, and would end up sparking a era that we at Speakman® refer to as our “reinvention period.” We made a personal vow to consistently strive to go bigger and better each and every year. To test new boundaries and break borders within our industry.

So with that back story being said, it’s our pleasure to announce that at the 2013 Hospitality Design Expo in the gorgeous Las Vegas, Nevada, we will proudly unveiled three new Shower and Bath Collections, each featuring their own original, elegant features aimed at the effortless designing of the luxury bathroom.

The Edge™ Collection:

The Edge Single Lever Faucet SB-1511

The Edge Single Lever Faucet SB-1511

When we began designing The Edge™ Collection, we wanted a design that would provide that “head-turning” factor in the bathroom. A collection of fixtures that would leave an impression on anyone who caught a glimpse of them. When we started the crafting of them we continuously kept bold, unique and adventurous in our minds.

Each fixture featured within The Edge™ Collection has a very courageous, square design with sharp, crisp edges. We designed these fixtures to look like nothing currently on the market today. The Edge™ Collection includes a Anystream® fixed shower head; single lever, widespread and roman tub faucets; tubspouts; valves with trim and complete shower system packages that are cohesively designed to rejuvenate your bathroom’s decor.

Tiber™ Collection:

We took a similar approach when designing the Tiber™ Collection as we did with The Edge™ Collection. We wanted bold, unique fixtures for the bathroom that also maintained a soft, humble side to embody modern elegance.

We took the same square frame that is featured on The Edge™ collection, but we intricately etched smooth curves into its sharp boarders. The result is a completely original, totally organic design that defines luxury in the modern bathroom. The Tiber™ Collection includes a fixed Anystream® shower head; single lever and widespread bathroom faucets; valves and trim and shower system packages.

Chelsea™ Collection:

For the Chelsea™ Collection, we took an entirely different approach. We became inspired by the idea of combining timeless style with modernized fashion, much like the posh Manhattan neighborhood for which it shares its name.

We crafted the fixtures in the Chelsea™ Collection to feature fluid curvatures throughout their frames to exemplify elegance in the transitional bathroom. The Chelsea™ Collection includes a Anystream® fixed shower head; centerset and widespread bathroom faucets; valves with trim and shower system packages.

Capture1Now of course, each collection features products that epitomize Speakman® quality and performance. Our patented Anystream® technology featured on each shower head in all three collections delivers versatile, euphoric spray patterns that suit to any bather’s preference. An effortless 360° rotation of the shower head in either direction produces either massaging, intense or flooding spray streams, allowing the bather to choose which setting is perfect for them.

The pressure balance valve ensures uninterrupted pressure and temperature throughout the shower, and also regulates the water temperature from ever becoming scalding-hot.

Make an Impact with Rainier™ Collection – Bold Square Design

New Castle, DE-June 15, 2012 – Speakman Company is pleased to introduce the new Rainier™ Shower System packages. Rainier is just one of the many new bathroom collections introduced by Speakman during the February 2012 launch of their Shower and Bath line.

Speakman believes the secret to a great day is a great shower, and for over 90 years has been able to prove this theory with their patented Anystream® spray technology. The company’s recent innovations in showerhead design have enabled them to combine this unique spray capability with a variety of sleek, contemporary design themes, including the Rainier collection. Rainier adds a cutting-edge square design to complete a bold look in any bathroom. To provide a coordinated look and functionality in the shower, the Rainier Shower System packages are available in various combinations.

The Rainier Shower System packages exemplify Speakman’s quality standard by coupling their anti-scald pressure valve and Rainier fixed showerhead with the Rainier shower arm, flange and tub spout for a uniform look. A diverter option is available for either the shower valve or tub spout.  Accessorize the shower by incorporating the Rainier Slide bar, which provides the option of including one of the various Anystream® Handheld shower models. The Rainer Shower System Packages are available in a polished chrome finish.

Get Fresh with Anystream Refresh Showerheads

Speakman Company is pleased to introduce the Anystream® Refresh Collection.  The Anystream® Refresh showerheads are one of the many new showerhead collections introduced by Speakman during the February launch of the renewed shower product line.
