Singular™ from Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks offers an end-to-end specification journey that delivers on cost and quality
Singular by Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks simplifies the process for commercial washrooms, providing an end-to-end specification journey with a near-infinite combination of award-winning products and solutions to choose from.
They can provide architects and designers with access to huge ranges of high-performance products across all categories from washbasins, WCs and urinals, flush plates, taps, showers and baths through to accessories including mirrors and furniture. In addition they can supply the hidden washroom infrastructure including in-wall frames for WCs along with cisterns.With product bundles, complete off-the-peg solutions, and a bespoke design service, they can support every project, every time.
For designers and specifiers, Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks’ comprehensive, fully compatible product portfolio gives the flexibility to make that first impression all the more spectacular, tailoring their vision to exactly what users will be looking for and in keeping with the design of the larger space.
Innovative washroom technology can provide a solution for reducing water consumption and help specifiers meet crucial targets, such as those set out in BREEAM and LEED. Ideal Standard’s pioneering smart tap Intellimix®, for example, dispenses soap and water, and features a 1.9 l/min flow regulator and a programable water flow duration.
Similarly, Sphero urinals from Armitage Shanks have been designed with water-saving in mind and feature a smart hybrid flush system with sensor technology that activates only when needed. As well as new technology, innovations and upgrades to existing product designs can also improve hygiene levels, with modern WCs and touchless flush plates also having a role to play when it comes to creating hygienic washrooms.
Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks have taken a deeper dive into the design process to help designers looking for inspiration, visualise products in situ. The Singular™ Sector Books for Hotels, Offices and Public Spaces take the product portfolio off the page and into real examples that designers can apply to their projects. For example, the Offices and Public Spaces sector demonstrates how the Sensorflow E tap in a hardwearing black PVD finish can be paired with the Connect basin to create an elegant but striking centrepiece in a commercial washroom.
These are just suggested routes through the catalogues though, and their Singular™ philosophy ensures complete compatibility across all of their ranges, meaning designers can combine products across collections and pick and choose what they like from the sector books. The value for the washroom sector is not just that designers are less likely to look elsewhere for a product that fits their vision, but also that it gives them the flexibility to change things when they need to. It’s about providing the confidence that, if they need to pick out a new product, it will fit with the existing space whether or not it was specified in the original design.
For key insights into sustainability, aesthetics, gender neutrality and carbon reduction, specifiers can access the Washroom Design for Tomorrow Whitepaper, plus the new Singular™ Solutions Sector Books, which bring together the manufacturers’ considerable expertise across a wide variety of commercial sectors.
