Move ensures facilities fulfil Part M of the Building Regulations and satisfy the 2010 Equality Act
Armitage Shanks has launched new Doc M packs which make it easier for specifiers and building managers to ensure their facilities fulfil Part M of the Building Regulations and satisfy the 2010 Equality Act.
Despite offering the broadest range of Part M products, Armitage Shanks has developed comprehensive Doc M packs which make it quick and easy to specify what is required according to the type of facility.
Itemised packs, floorplans and guidance are available online and in print for single toilet facilities, multiple toilet facilities, hotel facilities, public shower facilities and washrooms.
Tony Rheinberg, senior sector marketing manager at Armitage Shanks, said: “This year sees our brand celebrate its bicentenary and as the last remaining sanitaryware manufacturer in Britain, we certainly have a lot of knowledge when it comes to meeting diverse customer needs.
“Our Doc M packs and our broad range of Part M products demonstrate this and offer specifiers the perfect fit, whatever their application may be.”
Working with industry professionals, Armitage Shanks has extended its range of Part M products which meet the stipulations of the act, which requires that commercial and public buildings are entirely suitable for the use of disabled people.
The brand’s packs and the products within them are ideal for use in healthcare institutions and many of the packs contain the latest in healthcare washroom innovation.
New to the Part M offering are an improved range of back-to-wall and wall-hung WC pan designs, which offer a more modern and smooth-sided aesthetic. It also features an improved TMV3-approved sequential thermostatic tap, which is easier to use, safer and better looking than its predecessor.
These new products, along with the existing Part M lines available from Armitage Shanks, are supported by a new Part M brochure, which is available on IdealSpec, the Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks online information hub and product data portal for specification and specifiers.
The products offered cover the hugely-varied requirements of Part M, providing specifiers with flexibility in choice and design. An example of the Doc M packs available is Peninsular Care, which offers the perfect washroom solution for spaces where access for wheelchair users and carers is required.
