AKW Doc M sanitaryware
Accessibiity solution provider AKW has announced the launch of its upgraded Doc M sanitaryware range for public-use accessible toilets and washrooms.

Committed to ensuring that compliance is as straightforward as possible, AKW has also launched a design advice guide alongside the range, to make compliancy as straightforward as possible.

Ensuring toilets and washrooms conform to Document M of the UK Building Regulations involves buying and correctly installing the appropriate products, according to a spokesperson for AKW.

As well as giving examples of how a fully compliant Doc M washroom or toilet area should be designed and installed, the new guide also includes the latest AKW Doc M pack options.

There are 10 AKW Doc M packs to choose from and they range from fully compliant Doc M washrooms (including hand dryers, soap dispensers Etc.), to individual toilet cubicles. As well as traditional styling, there are two contemporary Doc M packs that feature stainless steel rails to fit in with any modern design aesthetic.

Designed with hygiene in mind, the packs include an AKW Navlin Doc M close-coupled or low-level rimless, raised-height toilet pan, a water-saving cistern and direct flushing system.

The ergonomic, soft-close toilet seat and the grab rails are also available in a range of colours, to enable high colour contrast between surfaces for those with visual impairments.

All of the Doc M packs feature either fixed or fold-up rails, and the washroom options are available with easy to use taps and British Standard BS 8300 wash basins.

Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW, comments: “Our upgraded AKW Doc M packs offer specifiers even more choice when it comes to installing a public-use accessible toilet or washroom.

“Each pack has been designed for maximum comfort and ease of use and also comes with recommendations for how and where to fit the products to ensure compliance. Our Doc M guide has also been created to help make the whole process even more straightforward and can be downloaded.

AKW specialises in the design and manufacture of showering, daily living and kitchen solutions for people with mobility needs. Its clients include the majority of local authorities, housing associations as well as national and regional contractors.

Last month it announced the launch of the Livenza Plus range, which claims to be fully compliant with the latest, revised UK water regulations recommended by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS).
