(Sugar Hill, GA. December 23, 2016) MTI Baths is proud to announce its win of a 2016 Product Innovator Award for their new Addison 5 freestanding tub. The Architectural Products’ Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products that range the gamut from cladding systems to interior finishes.
Hundreds of product submissions were judged by a group of 28 independent industry professionals. “Building on the success of last year’s program, our sixth edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director for Architectural Products Magazine.
The judges loved that the freestanding tub fits into a standard 60-inch space. The Addison 5 comes in at just 58-inches long, yet because it is made of the company’s signature ESS® material, the tub walls are only 1” thick. This enables the Addison 5 to offer a very generous interior bathing area with a smaller exterior footprint than a cast iron or acrylic tub with double-walled construction. With elegantly concaved ends that are gently contoured to be supportive and extremely comfortable, the Addison 5 reflects the clean lines that have made the Boutique Collection so popular.
