                      Add Hotel Luxury and Style to Your Bath
             With New Curved Shower Rods from Inspirations® by Moen®

North Olmsted, Ohio…More elbow room in the shower no longer requires a major remodeling
project or an overnight stay at a hotel, thanks to the new line of Curved Shower Rods from
Inspirations® by Moen®. These heavy-duty, fixed- or adjustable-length rods feature a graceful
curve that provides up to 7½ additional inches of showering space, depending on the model.

“Curved shower rods allow consumers to feel like they have an oversized, luxury shower without
adding any square footage,” said Tim Bitterman, product/brand manager, Inspirations by Moen.
“It’s an affordable solution that provides more room while adding terrific style and visual appeal.”

To simplify the installation process, the fixed- and adjustable-length rods feature a new
pivoting flange that adjusts to create a flush, secure installation, even on irregular wall
surfaces. Decorative covers snap into place easily to conceal the pivoting flange and any
existing holes from a previous rod. Each rod can be mounted into a variety of surfaces, such
as drywall, wood or tile.

The fixed-length Curved Shower Rod is available in five- and six-foot lengths to fit most
standard shower enclosures. Or for baths that need a bit of customization, the adjustable-
length Curved Shower Rod is designed to fit snugly into shower spaces anywhere from four and
a half- to six-feet wide, with no cutting required.
Curved Shower Rods are available in three of today’s most popular finishes, Chrome, Brushed
Nickel and Old World Bronze – a new finish with smooth, rich copper tones and brown detailing.

Most importantly, both the fixed- and adjustable-length Curved Shower Rods easily fit standard
size shower curtains – ensuring full shower coverage and leak control.

Backed by a lifetime limited warranty, the stainless steel construction of the rod and covers not
only makes the product beautiful, but durable as well. The curved shower rod is guaranteed to
withstand rust and provide a secure wall connection.
