Plumbing Supplies for House Builders, Refurbishing Contractors, Home Owners, Local Authorities, Tradesmen & Hoteliers

The current crisis has prompted us to rethink the way we do things, particularly regarding hygiene, which has in the past left a lot to be desired. Sensible advice is coming at us from all directions about washing hands, wearing masks and staying 2 metres apart. Certain places are a priority for change and this includes public toilets, whether in shopping centres, restaurants or hotels. Health experts, architects and designers have recently been pointing out how flawed this whole area is. There are widespread calls for strict building codes and innovative designs to reduce risk of spreading infection.

Some ideas include sensor taps, no touch entrances/exits and totally self cleaning toilets. The World Health Organization has joined the chorus of voices calling for a change in the design of public bathrooms. There is some really useful general advice on their website to keep yourself safe. Many structural upgrades can be completed by a competent DIYer with tools or equipment hired in Ipswich from companies such as Rhinos Plant Hire.
