AKW's new futureproof sanitaryware range - compliant with revised UK water regulations
AKW, one of the UK's leading providers of accessibility solutions, has launched its stylish new Livenza Plus sanitaryware.
This high-quality range has classic, clean lines and is fully compliant with the latest, revised UK Water Regulations - and thanks to its rimless design, is easier to clean.
With the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) reviewing its approval of water fittings across the industry, the Livenza Plus range delivers peace of mind to installers and end users alike, as it is fully compliant with all revised requirements. In addition, it features flush options and stylish aesthetics to suit any washroom.
The latest UK water regulations require a 300mm cistern overflow pipe and a visible top-fill water inlet valve, with an all-round air gap. This is to eliminate backflow and potential contamination risk of the water supply. To accommodate the revised internal design requirements, the Livenza Plus raised push button and lever flush cisterns are tall and slim, delivering both functionality and enhanced aesthetics.
Alongside this sophisticated design upgrade to the original Livenza range, the AKW Livenza Plus range has rounded edges and corners to minimise potential fall injuries and features a rimless pan, which is easier to clean and helps prevent the build-up of bacteria. To improve functionality still further, the cistern comes with either a standard push button flush, a raised version or lever handle option for those with dexterity issues. There are two contemporary soft-close seat options that can support up to 23.5 stone (150kg) and a 59mm toilet plinth has been included in the range, to accommodate raised-height design requirements. A new wash basin bracket has also been developed, to provide additional strength and support where needed.
"The AKW Livenza Plus range takes our original Livenza range a step further,” notes Stuart Reynolds, head of product and marketing at AKW. “As well as being designed with safety and style in mind, it is one of the only fully compliant products on the market today. Livenza Plus is quick and easy to fit, has been approved for use on contract specification and can also be ordered as part of our 'AKW One' easy ordering service.”
