Specifications for hot water systems in domestic environments are detailed within Part G of the Building Regulations, which consider the safety of all occupants but especially young children and vulnerable adults.
Student accommodation, hotel buildings and alike have unique requirements for effective space heating and safe hot water delivery. Providing facilities that offer individual control and high performance but manage water usage effectively can be challenging. Products specified for these applications should conform to TMV2 regulations to ensure safe water delivery. All fittings that come into contact with potable water need to be Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) approved.
Hospitals and care homes are required to maintain the most stringent of hygiene and infection control standards to ensure patient safety and wellbeing. As experts in hot water technology, our Reliance Water Controls range offers solutions for controlling and maintaining hot water systems as well as safe water delivery at the outlet for all different types of healthcare applications.
Sports / Leisure Facilities
Balancing the need for safety as well as high quality showering facilities and effective water management is a challenge for sports and leisure complexes. Products that deliver high performance across multiple outlets, combined intuitive design and aesthetics are required to meet customer expectations, whilst TMV3 thermostatic protection is a necessity to ensure the water is delivered at safe temperatures. Water efficiency is also a further consideration for this sector.
Schools provide for a tough environment for heating and water systems. Safety, durability and water saving are unconditional requirements. Like Healthcare environments, education facility water systems are specifically designed to exclude water dead legs and operate at higher temperatures to prevent the growth of bacteria such as Legionella or Pseudomonas.
Facilities such as prisons, detention/remand centres have very unique requirements for water systems that need to consider challenges wider than just product performance, safe water delivery and durability. Specialist products, with antiligative designs are required to prevent misuse both in terms of vandalism or selfharm. Water management is also an increasing priority within this sector.
Retail / Commercial Washrooms
Commercial washrooms whether large or small have quite diverse requirements. Providing safe, clean and durable facilities with access for all (considering the requirements of Part M Volume 2 of the Building Regulations), implementing water saving initiatives that conform to the recommendations set out by BREEAM, and maintaining a safe and hygienic facility are all challenges yet fundamental requirements.
