Filtrine Manufacturing Company Introduces a New Drinking Water Fountain Made of Wood
Sustainable Design to Enhance the Décor in Buildings throughout the World
Keene, NH – April 2016 – Inspired by New Hampshire woods and access to some of the finest furniture makers in New England, Filtrine has built a beautiful functional drinking water fountain, the 14” diameter Model 108-WD. It is comprised of a bronze bowl encircled with fine New Hampshire cherry wood (finished with multiple coats of impermeable Tung Oil) and an ADA compliant soft touch bubbler. This design joins other unique models in the Filtrine Fountain Collection such as the stunning Model 107-MA which features a mirror finish bronze bowl encircled by marble.
For over 100 years, Filtrine is known for its time honored innovative approach to commercial drinking water fountains, water coolers and filtration. “We strive for new ways to deliver drinking water in elegant fountain designs,” says Peter Hansel, the fourth-generation President of the family-owned company, “We use sustainable practices to build drinking water systems for all types of buildings throughout the world. When architects or engineers are looking for a unique design for a fountain or have an unusual cooling requirement that other manufacturers can’t provide, they come to us.”
The Filtrine Model 108-WD drinking water fountain is also available with the 16 ga bronze bowl encircled in mahogany, teak, bamboo (used when sustainability is a priority) and walnut. The under bowl and support arm are made in bronze to match. The fountain comes with a rugged mounting plate that is installed behind the finish wall or if surface mounted, installed behind an optional matching bronze cover plate.
As an add-on to its drinking fountains, Filtrine offers point of use water coolers and remote water chillers to chill and purify the drinking water. Specifiers can select from Filtrine filter and purifier elements (in durable, long lasting stainless steel housing) that meet NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53 to remove lead, organic tastes and odors, chlorine taste and odor, sediment particles down to 0.5 microns, and pathogens including Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba Giardia and Toxoplasma. Some of the elements are used to cut down on plumbing corrosion.
