Bathrooms have gone high tech with hands-free faucets, soap dispensers, and hand dryers. Bradley Corp.’s Advocate AV-Series goes one step further by combining all three into one unit. The AV-Series allows users to wash and dry hands without moving from a sink to a hand dryer, eliminating water drips on the floor. Made of Terreon solid surface material, the unit includes a 0.38 gpm faucet, a dual-sided hand dryer, and a top-fill soap dispenser. bradleycorp.com
