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.
