Drinking Fountain Receives Platinum Design Award
Halsey Taylor’s Marblyte Contour drinking fountain was recognized in the 2009 Design Journal Award for Design Excellence Competition as a platinum winner – the highest honor in its category.
ADEX Awards honor the design of furniture, fixtures and finishes each year, and are judged by industry professionals representing a cross section of key players in the design industry. This year’s competition attracted more than 500 companies entering approximately 2,000 new products. Each category has potential for three award levels of platinum, gold or silver.
Developed for educational facilities, Halsey Taylor’s vandal-resistant, bi-level model (HRFGSEBP-VR) features a contemporary look and is manufactured from Marblyte, a premium non-porous and durable solid-surface material. The winning model is barrier-free, ADA-compliant model and helps facility managers protect equipment while providing healthy, lead-free water. Its contoured basins aids in eliminating messes through engineering to minimize splashing and standing water.
In addition, the protective bottom coverplates, manufactured from galvanized steel, are also designed to further safeguard the unit from any damage due to frequent use in high-traffic areas. The fountain is also available as a freeze-resistant model.
