The basins in our Eco and Pro Ranges are 450x370mm and in our Elite Range they measure 400x345mm. The basin in our high specification Zero 100 Series measures 380x300mm. Finally the basin in our Armourlight stainless steel anti vandal Doc M pack measures 330x350mm
Disabled toilets vary in height from around 440mm high (17 1/4") up to 500mm high (19 3/4"). We have added the height of each toilet bowl in the product or Doc M pack specification and included the lower rung of the seat. Due to manufacturing processes there will always be a small variance in actual tolerances.
No! If you are going to choose a light colour wall finish then the grab rails with your Doc M pack are going to have to produce a sufficient contrast to the light coloured wall.
There needs to be a minimum difference in LRV (Light Reflective Value) of at least 30 points. Using the example of the white wall mentioned above and our brushed stainless accessories; The LRV of the brushed stainless rails and accessories range from 36 to 48. As it is not possible to achieve 100 perfect white if we say that the white wall would be 90 points then the differences would range from 42 to 54 points thus exceeding the required LRV difference of 30 points.
