How To Care

We are increasingly asked whether the healthcare taps that we supply are DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) compliant. The requirement states that sanitary accommodation will satisfy requirements M1 or M3 any bath or washbasin tap is either controlled automatically or is capable of being operated using a closed fist eg by lever action.

The options are therefore to install infra red sensor taps or extended/elbow lever taps. The introduction of our new Ability Lever Taps fully satisfies the acts requirements.

it is also stated that the needs of people with visual impairment should be considered and as such the use of high visibility graphics and the contrast between the lever colour and tap body provides useful visual contrast. The Italian designed range which includes basin, bath & sink taps will be suitable for any public building looking to ensure their chosen brassware complies with the requirements of the disabilty discrimination act.

Using patented technology, the Systema shower valves distribute cold water around the outside body whilst keeping the hot feed inside thus ensuring the body remains cooler in operation - This is particularly important when used by more vulnerable users such as young children or the elderly who are more prone to risk of burns. These showers are also suitable for commercial premises looking to provide a higher level of safety in their bathrooms. There is a bar shower valve (illustrated) together with a matching bath shower mixer.

As part of our commitment to provide as comprehensive range as possible for our customers, Notjusttaps is able to supply to special order products from Armitage Shanks Controls. Products include Markwik taps and mixers, Avon brassware and from together with washroom, showering and handwash controls.
