Bathrooms Explained

Sanitary Ware

Water Efficiency

A number of schemes exist to highlight the water efficiency of sanitary ware products. The Bathroom Manufacturers Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme labels products with water consumption data, such as flush volumes, to enable the user to make an informed choice. Whilst, Waterwise, selects the most water efficient products each year and allows manufacturers to use their Waterwise Mark.

Bathroom Suites

Prefabricated Bathrooms

Bathroom Accessories

To improve the every day functionality of your home bathroom a variety of bath screens can be fixed to the wall at the head of the bath to stop water splashes on the floor, particularly when using a shower mounted at the head of the bath. Screens can be retractable or fixed in position, whilst concertina bath screens can be folded out of the way, when not in use. Screens are either transparent plastic or toughened glass, which should comply with current safety standards, and screen frames are generally aluminium, chrome effect or plastic.

Reclaimed building materials, salvage yards and more

The term Architectural Salvage is generally used to describe any building materials, fittings or decorative architectural features that were once part of a building's construction or the surrounding built environment, and have since been removed for reuse. The Code is not a compulsory illegal requirement in the UK and was introduced in 1995 to give customers greater assurance that antique and salvage items being traded were not stolen.


Foundations, Ground Stabilisation, Piling and more

Retaining wall structures prevent slopes from failing, and collapsing or moving down slope, once sections of material have been excavated from the original topography of the site. Most groundwork and substructure works are undertaken to prepare the site for the proposed structure and to create foundations necessary for its support.
