New KOHLER Underscore Bath Additions Offer Soaking, BubbleMassage and Whirlpool Options
KOHLER, Wis. – Feb. 8, 2012 – Building on the popularity of the original Underscore baths, Kohler Co. expands its line with three additional sizes: 60-by-30-inch with 3 flanges, 60-by-36-inch, and 72-by-36-inch baths, along with BubbleMassage and whirlpool models at the 2012 International Builders’ Show.
“The Underscore bath offers a clean, rectilinear design, which is quite compatible with any style, offering homeowners timeless appeal,” says Kevin Gannon, bathing product manager for Kohler. “Additional sizes and hydrotherapy choices with the new Underscore models provide personalization and flexibility for homeowners and specifiers.”
Drop-in and undermount installation is what drives today’s contemporary trends, with the increased use of natural materials in the bathroom; and Underscore is available in both installation types. The Underscore baths’ simple, crisp design lines perfectly complement granite, stone or tile.
All models of the Underscore bath feature a unique design detail that creates a deeper-than-normal soaking experience. A large, slotted overflow drain positioned near the bath rim maximizes the level of water in the bath, providing two additional inches of bathing depth. In comparison, overflow drains found on traditional baths are round and positioned lower, limiting the water depth.
- Clearflo slotted overflow maximizes bathing depth without adding step-over height
- Deep soaking depth for a calm, relaxing experience
- 122 jets precisely positioned on the lower perimeter of the bath for complete and balanced hydro-massage
- “Zones of Control” allows for bath customization, as each of three zones can be independently manipulated
- 18 levels of airflow adjustability for full range of massage intensity
- Eight fully adjustable flexjets in the whirlpool models for targeted hydro-massage
- User can adjust both intensity and direction of flow at each jet
- Jet trim can be color-matched to bath or finish-matched to faucet
- Available with integral inline heater to maintain water temperature during use
Chromatherapy is available on all Underscore baths, where users can experience the calming effects of different colored light combinations to enhance their bathing experience.
The Underscore baths are available in five colors to ensure a natural fit with other faucets, fixtures and accessories in the bathroom. With the new additions to the Underscore bath family, there are now nine sizes available and three experience options.
MSRP: Starting prices for Underscore baths, whirlpools and BubbleMassage models range from $1055 to $5000
