Beckon, the new touchless kitchen faucet from KOHLER, is the marriage of modern technology and classic design, incorporating Response touchless technology with a classically elegant form. The hands-free functionality enables users to prep, clean, and cook without concern of cross contamination.
Beckon contains all the latest faucet technology in a design that has a graceful, traditional appeal. A detailed sprayhead and base carry the classic lines expected in traditional and eclectic designs, and the Beckon faucet is designed to be hassle-free: it uses AC power, so there are no batteries to replace, and an LED light on the handle indicates when the faucet is operational. The sprayhead pulls down using ProMotion technology, which features a braided hose with swivel ball joint, providing smooth operation with minimal effort. When finished, the sprayhead neatly and securely locks back into place using Kohler’s DockNetik magnetic docking system located within the spout. The proprietary Response Technology enables users to turn the faucet on and off with a wave of their hand, and the activation window is strictly defined to prevent any false activation of the faucet.
Additional functionalities include a dual-function sprayhead to effortlessly switch between stream spray and the Kohler-patented Sweep spray, which employs precisely angled nozzles to form a wide, powerful blade of water that efficiently sweeps dishes and the sink clean. A high arching spout, which makes it easy to clean and fill large pots. A single lever handle that is intuitive to use and makes for simple water temperature adjustment, and the faucet’s unique temperature memory enables it to be turned on and off at the same temperature set during the previous usage.
The MasterClean sprayface has an easy-to-clean surface that resists mineral built-up, and the ceramic disk valves exceed industry longevity standards to ensure a consistent, dependable lifetime performance. It has a maximum flow rate of 1.8 gpm (gallons per minute) at 60 psi and meets CalGreen requirements for kitchen faucets.
The Beckon faucet has a premium metal construction, and the KOHLER finishes options of Polished Chrome, Vibrant Polished Nickel, Vibrant Stainless, and Oil-Rubbed Bronze are all resistant to corrosion and tarnishing.
