KOHLER, Wis. – April 24, 2012 – In today's fast-paced society, more and more homeowners are looking to heat for its therapeutic and relaxing elements. Adding to the trend of heated surfaces such as car seats, flooring and toilet seats, Kohler Co. launches the Underscore™ baths with Bask heated surface for enhanced relaxation. Bask provides a warm surface for the neck and back and adjustable temperature settings for bathers to customize their experience.

"When we immerse ourselves into a bath, we want to be surrounded by warmth," says Ann Roever, business director for Kohler bathing products. "The Bask heated surface allows bathers to recline onto a warm surface that complements the warmth of the bath water."

Three temperature settings enable bathers to customize the surface temperature to their comfort preference. Using a 110-volt power system allows the bath to work with standard outlets and uses no more energy than a standard light bulb. The Bask heated surface technology is available on all nine sizes of the popular Underscore bath, including the popular 30-by-60-inch model and the statement piece: Underscore Cube.

Underscore baths can be undermount or drop-in, and feature a slotted overflow that creates a deeper-than-normal soaking experience. In comparison to overflow drains found on traditional baths that are round and positioned lower, limiting the water depth, the large, slotted overflow drain positioned near the Underscore bath rim maximizes the level of water in the bath for a true soaking experience.

MSRP: Range from $1700 for the 60-by-30-inch model to $2700 for the 48-by-48-inch cube model
