Franke launches new line of waste disposers
Smyrna, Tenn.-based Franke has added a new line of luxury, waste disposers to its collection of sinks, faucets and kitchen solutions. The collection comprises seven products (ranging from 1/3 horsepower to 1 1/4 horsepower) that grind to septic-system compatible levels of fineness using less energy in the fastest possible time, the company says.
“Franke’s exceptional waste disposers are indispensable for those who prize a healthy lifestyle and sustainable kitchen,” said Lars Christensen, VP product development & innovation, Franke Kitchen Systems North America. “Our new line allows users to efficiently and hygienically wash food scraps away so that they can spend more time enjoying a clean and tidy kitchen. And they offer a level of quality only Franke can provide.”
Franke’s line of waste disposers include Bio Shield, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and reduces odors by embedding antimicrobial additives into the internal components of Franke disposers (typical germs that Bio Shield guards against include escherichia coli and salmonella).
Franke’s waste disposers are available in showrooms across the country for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) between $149 – $439 (depending on size and style).
