Doc M Packs to Simplify Specification Process

Armitage Shanks Sanitaryware

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.

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 at the sanitaryware firem, said: “Our Doc M packs and our broad range of Part M products have a lifetime guarantee on all ceramic items and a five year guarantee on our taps, mixers, toilet seats, stainless steel and cistern fittings.”

Working with industry professionals, Armitage Shanks has extended its range of Part M products which meet the stipulations of the Equality Act, which requires that commercial and public buildings are entirely suitable for the use of disabled people.

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.
