Horne specialises in the design and manufacture of pre-plumbed thermostatic shower panels for a variety of private and public care applications, including accessible and Changing Places facilities.

Horne shower

Glampsite operators offering accessible amenities for their clients should consider installing a Horne Care shower. It features an enclosed hot water supply pipe (within the shower panel) avoiding injury caused by a hot surface, and integral Water Fittings Regulations and Type 3 Approved (healthcare rated) thermostatic shower valve and lever controls. These are clearly and logically marked and individually shaped to further denote function (flow or temperature) by feel.

The easy, low-torque, lever operation works with a closed fist, offering greater independence to users with limited grip or hand mobility. Other features include a riser mechanism with easy height adjustment using only a closed fist, and visual contrast for users with limited sight including on shower controls, head, hose and handset and background panel (LRV=86) and a clear black dot on the riser mechanism.

Glampsite operators will also appreciate its robust design and ease of installation, cleaning, valve maintenance (with free online training) and low-cost spare parts. An integral flow regulator helps reduce water use, which, coupled with accurate and reliable thermostatic control of the shower valve, saves energy too. Watch a video at http://goo.gl/PqVf76
