(CHINO, CA – April 2008) – Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath has been honored with three ADEX design awards for its Finestra™, Era™ and Metallo™ products.

“Congratulations on an amazing showing,” said John Moses, publisher of Design Journal, the international trade publication for interior designers which hosts the awards. “This year’s competition was the most hotly contested in the last 13 years, with more than 1,200 entries from 300 companies.” The Finestra walk-in therapy bath received a platinum award; the Era freestanding bath received a gold; and the Metallo shower panel a silver.

“We are thrilled to be honored with these prestigious awards,” said Tom Koos, president and chief executive officer of Jacuzzi Brands Corporation. “They reaffirm Jacuzzi’s reputation as a company that offers high-quality, innovative bath and spa products for consumers who value wellness, health and true luxury.”
