Innovative system reduces cost and increase speed of installation by up to 70%
LAS VEGAS – KOVA, the official building products brand of Katerra, will be exhibiting at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, Nevada from Jan. 21 to 23 in booth C4536. KOVA will introduce several new products focused specifically on helping builders reduce cost and increase speed of installation on a build, including the KOVA Bath Kit, which radically streamlines the traditional approach to bathroom installation. This kitted delivery system consists of all materials, fixtures and finishes to complete a bathroom install up to 70% faster as compared to a traditional build.
“A primary goal of KOVA is to offer solutions to the challenges builders and contractors face during a project, and installing a bathroom is historically one of the most expensive and time-consuming parts of a build,” said Trevor Schick, head of the KOVA materials business. “We have spent the last few years developing the KOVA Bath Kit and using them on Katerra-built projects, and now other builders can benefit from the system as well. What used to require months of staggered trades and material deliveries can now be accomplished in less than one day by two people.”
The KOVA Bath Kit is fully assembled at the warehouse level and securely packaged into an innovative cradle delivery system in order of installation. The Bath Kit is delivered directly to the job site and dropped in its final placement within the bathroom space, complete with a sequential installation guide. The system includes a full tub with surround structure, toilet and vanity with sink, quartz countertop and faucet. Also included in the kit are fasteners, paint or caulk required for on-site assembly of the Bath Kit as well as decorative finishes such as mirrors and towel racks.
KOVA will showcase several other new and innovative products at the annual tradeshow, including:
- Compact Appliances: Designed for smaller spaces, KOVA’s new line of Compact Appliances includes products such as a 24-inch Wall Oven, 24-inch Ceramic Electric Cooktop and Integrated Panel-Ready Refrigerator.
- Privacy Pocket Door Lock: This elegant and easy-to-use pocket door solution features concealed screws, minimal seams and a large handle and edge pull for optimal functionality.
