LAS VEGAS, March 11, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oatey Co., a leading manufacturer in the plumbing industry since 1916, showcased its wide range of premium bathroom plumbing products and systems at the recent Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS ). This was the first time that Oatey's large portfolio of bathroom plumbing products and systems – both in-wall and behind-the-wall – were showcased at the show, reflecting the company's centuries of industry expertise.

“At Oatey, we know that quality products come together both behind and in front of the wall to create the bathroom experience that contractors, designers and homeowners are looking for,” says Katherine Lehtinen, senior vice president of marketing at Oatey. “KBIS was an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our range of industry-leading products that make bathrooms a reality, from the first pipe to the final design.”

Oatey's casting garnered a lot of attention on the show. Notable bathroom products and systems on display included:

  • The new QuickDrain BenchDrain: BenchDrain is an innovative, slim linear drain that is integrated directly into a shower bench. For years, designers, contractors and homeowners alike have valued QuickDrain's sophisticated WallDrain – which is installed directly into the shower wall – for its unique modern aesthetic. With the introduction of BenchDrain, installers can achieve the same barely visible drainage experience without damaging the wall. Instead, BenchDrain comes with everything you need to build a tiled bench and install the linear drain directly into it. Almost any solid surface tile can be installed into the drain's magnetic inflow cover, completing BenchDrain's elegant, concealed look.

  • QuickDrain shower systems with linear and square drains: These drains offer unlimited design possibilities and superior technology. QuickDrain linear drains provide wall-to-wall coverage that promotes effective and efficient water drainage. With rimmed and rimless options for residential, hospitality and healthcare applications, QuickDrain excels at providing homeowners, designers and installers with the perfect jobsite-ready solution.

  • Oatey Freestanding Tub Drain: The Oatey® Freestanding Tub Drain Kit takes the guesswork and complexity out of installing a freestanding/island center tub or offset tub. For shell construction, simply connect the drain to the Drain, Waste and Vent (DWV) system above ground level – only a 4-inch hole in the subfloor is required. The compact, universally compatible drain works with brass or Schedule 40 finials and connects easily to any plumbing configuration. The kit includes a pre-installed, tool-free, quarter-turn leak test plug and an easy-grip protective cap to prevent drain overflow.

  • Oatey 130 Series Drains: An excellent choice for tiles and pre-formed shower trays, the 130 Series drains offer durability, functionality and style, making them a preferred option for modern bathroom designs. Configurations are square or round, snap-in or screw-in, and available in polished stainless steel, brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, or matte black finishes.

  • Dearborn TrueBlue Bathtub Drains with Designer Finishes: True Blue bathtub drains combine functionality and aesthetics in one package, helping installers overcome several frustrations when installing bathtub drains and overflows. The True Blue bath drain features an integrated, locking bath shoe seal that prevents it from moving or falling from unusual or difficult angles while the drain spout is being installed. Overflow and drain test plugs are installed with a simple quarter turn, allowing for quick and reliable testing. If the homeowner or designer changes their mind about which finish to use, this system allows the contractor to quickly replace the trim without removing the jamb and does not require additional sealants. Available finishes include champagne bronze, matte black, chrome, white, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze and brushed gold.

  • Oatey MODA Utility Boxes: These utility boxes provide a reliable solution for managing water supply lines behind walls, ensuring convenience and ease of use for homeowners and installers alike. The MODA utility box system is designed to meet the needs of plumbing installers for washing machines, ice makers, toilets, lavatories, dishwashers and SureVent® air inlet valve applications. A universal single-box platform offers maximum versatility, easy installation and robust reliability. The MODA Supply Box System is the ultimate solution for speed and flexibility.
