Fgi Wins Prestigious "Designbites" Award On Launch Day At Kbis (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show)

The Flush Guard™ Patented Anti-Overflow Drain System named the "Brand with the Biggest Bite."

The debut of Flush GuardTM Anti-Overflow Toilets at KBIS in Las Vegas, Nevada was heightened by its triumph in the DesignBites product showdown, a showcase of the latest product innovations and hottest designs in the kitchen and bath marketplace. From the thousands of brands and products at the show, ten were chosen as finalists to pitch to a distinguished judging panel and an audience of kitchen and bath design professionals and media. In the end, Flush Guard – the "cure for Overflowbia" – came out on top.

“Our research shows that ‘Overflowbia,’ or the fear of a toilet overflow, is very real – particularly among those who have experienced it firsthand,” explains Barry Jacobs, SVP of Product Development at FGI Industries and the presenter at the DesignBites competition. “Flush Guard’s™ anti-overflow drain system represents the next major innovation in toilets…consumers can literally ‘go in peace.' The DesignBites judges really got it, and we're thrilled to have won this exciting award.”

Flush Guard™ Anti-Overflow Toilets feature one of the most powerful flushes on the market, making them difficult to clog in the first place. But in the unlikely event that the main drain becomes clogged, the three anti-overflow holes in the bowl allow water to escape through a secondary drain. And that anti-overflow drain is self-cleaning with every flush.

“KBIS is North America’s largest and most comprehensive trade show dedicated to the kitchen and bath industry. To receive such an award with so much incredible competition is really an honor,” says Glen Paporello, VP of Marketing.
