Healthcare

Caring for people during the most vulnerable and challenging time of their lives can mean re-evaluating they way even the simplest things are done. Providing specialised assistance, which protects the privacy and dignity of the elderly and infirm, often requires specialised products. Armitage Shanks has developed a dedicated range of sanitary products tailored to the needs of those who require a little extra help. Our Part M compliant sanitary-ware and fittings are a comprehensive solution to the needs of both the user and the carer.

Choosing sanitary-ware and fittings for hospital use can literally be a life or death decision. The need to deliver water and remove waste efficiently, reduce cross infection and cater for the physical limitations of patients demands a lot from every sanitary installation. Armitage Shanks has a long history of working with the Department of Health to determine the functional requirements of hospital sanitary-ware. We continue to design and refine products specifically for hospital use in line with the requirements of HTM64 a healthcare standard.

Hand washing is such a vital element of infection control in hospitals that it is important that the facilities are there to make this as easy as possible. HTM 04-01 advises that hand washing is “best performed under running water at a safe, stable and comfortable temperature”.  Thermostatic taps ensure that water temperatures remain constant, without the user having to make any temperature control adjustments while they wash their hands.  Find out more about why thermostats are important here.
