The ActiClean self-cleaning toilet from American Standard has been named a 2016 GREEN GOOD DESIGN award recipient in the Green Products category. This recognition was presented by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
The GREEN GOOD DESIGN award distinguishes innovative industrial designs that display forward thinking and progress toward a healthier and more sustainable world. It aims to raise public consciousness of products that contribute to worldwide design invention while incorporating the ideals of energy and resource conservation.
“American Standard has a long-standing commitment to producing groundbreaking products that save water without sacrificing performance. Being recognized by this illustrious award program for the unique technologies and water-conserving performance of the ActiClean toilet is a rewarding affirmation of this goal,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer of LIXIL Americas, the business unit under which American Standard operates.
ActiClean combines the power of VorMax flushing technology with a fully integrated self-cleaning system. Press a button and walk away.
ActiClean only releases cleaner into the bowl, but uses the VorMax technology to thoroughly scrub the bowl clean. The high-efficiency, WaterSense-certified toilet uses a single powerful jet of only 1.28 gallons of water per flush.
This is the fourth time that American Standard has been named a GREEN GOOD DESIGN award recipient: In 2014, the Company won for its SATO sanitary toilet pan, designed for use in developing countries to close off open pit latrines and help prevent the spread of disease; In 2013 for its ICS scrub sink with Selectronic IC faucet, which was recognized for promoting a hygienic healthcare environment; and in 2012, the Company received an award for its water-efficient Decorum FloWise commercial urinal.
Since 1950, more than 40,000 GREEN GOOD DESIGN award have been presented to the world’s top manufacturers, design firms and Fortune 500 companies.
