  • Self-Leveling Base: A major time-saver during installation, this tub’s self-leveling base eliminates the need to fret over a perfectly level base structural support.  High-density compressible pads do the work for you, compensating for any imperfections. DIY’ers and contractors both appreciate this feature.
  • Americast: 7 years in the making, Americast’s unique three-layer construction consists of a smooth porcelain-enamel finish on high-quality alloy, backed by an injection-molded structural composite. It offers the same structural thickness and rich enamel colors as cast-iron, but is half the weight, and does a better job at retaining heat, preventing chips / crazing, and absorbing sound.
  • Premium Gelcoat: Luxury American Standard tubs all use premium gelcoat for a reason: it retains a glossy finish, is flexible (will never chip, crack or craze), easy to clean, and far lighter (and easier to install) than cast iron. Premium Gelcoat means that it is reinforced with a fiberglass composite for maximum strength.
