American Standard Engineers Touchless Flush Toilet for a Safer, More Hygienic Throne at Home

Reliable touchless technology pairs with renowned Cadet flushing system for winning combination

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – In response to the growing desire to create cleaner, safer homes by limiting touch points to help curb the spread of germs, American Standard, the kitchen and bath brand with a 150-year legacy of creating products with built-to-last quality and never-let-you-down performance, has engineered a touchless toilet to make the most popular seat in the house a more hygienic experience. The new Cadet Touchless Flush toilet is a winning combination of the brand’s powerful, top-selling Cadet flushing system and reliable no-touch flush operation, bringing everyday dependability and comfort to one of the busiest rooms in the home while helping homeowners protect their loved ones.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused people to take a hard look at some of the spaces harmful germs may be lurking in their own homes. American Standard has answered their calls for a solution by engineering products that minimize germs spread on surfaces, offering families peace of mind and making home the safe haven it should be. The Cadet Touchless Flush toilet is the brand’s newest innovation in its portfolio of touchless products, integrating the technology with its legendary Cadet flush – known for its proven ability to clear the bowl quickly and completely – making it poised to become the germ-fighting throne of the home. Requiring a simple wave of the hand to trigger ultimate flushing power, families can avoid germs that linger on the toilet handle without sacrificing the performance they expect from an American Standard toilet. The user-friendly sensor module can be placed on the toilet tank or the wall for easy access to flush as you leave the room and comes with a push-button manual flush option to ensure continual operation.

“We are always looking for ways to improve life in the heart of the home, and given the consumer demand for products with touchless operation, broadening our range of touchless products to offer an option in toilets was an essential next step,” said Gene Barbato, leader, American Standard Brand. “The Cadet Touchless Flush Toilet pairs touchless technology with the proven flushing performance of our popular Cadet model, providing a product that offers reliability, a competitive price point and peace of mind in one of the home’s most high-traffic spaces.”

The dependable WaterSense-certified flushing technology uses 20 percent less water than regular toilets, with a water-saving 1.28 gallons per flush. As an added layer of protection, American Standard’s EverClean surface inhibits the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew and the smooth, slab-sided bowl design makes cleaning a breeze. Available in both an exposed and concealed trap design, the elongated bowl models provide comfortable access and use with a slow-close seat to eliminate slamming.

The Cadet Touchless Flush Toilet, available for $505, is the latest addition to American Standard’s collection of touchless products for both the home and commercial spaces, including commercial toilets and bathroom and kitchen faucets. American Standard’s Cadet Touchless Flush toilet and other touchless innovations are available online, at kitchen and bath showrooms and major retailers nationwide.  To learn more, visit americanstandard.com.
