Britton Bathrooms make life easier

Sometimes just a simple, thoughtful touch can make all the difference. This is certainly the case with Britton Tall, a clever design to make life easier for taller people, the elderly, less able or anyone with back or knee problems. For a tall person, a standard height pedestal basin can, quite literally, be a pain in the neck because using it involves stooping. Britton Bathrooms has introduced a round fronted pedestal 6cm higher than standard that can be used with any basin from the Britton Cube, Curve, Fine or Compact ranges – all of which are attractive contemporary styles.

Bathroom Brands has also made close coupled and wall-hung WC’s 6cm higher. This extra height makes it easier to sit down and get up and keeps the knees at a 90 degree angle. “We have a growing older population that can find a low WC or basin painful and difficult to use. We’re taller now too.” says Faye Rainey, Brand Development Manager. The average height of men has risen by almost 11cm since the mid-19th century, experts have found. Data was collected on hundreds of thousands of men from 15 European countries. For British men, the average height at age 21 rose from 167.05cm (5ft 5in) in 1871-75 to 177.37cm (5ft 10in) in 1971-75 and this is a trend that is continuing.

“Offering a generic taller pedestal that can be used with different styles is a fast and simple solution for retailers and consumers, as is the option of a 6cm higher WC.”

One thought on “Britton Bathrooms make life easier”

  1. Excellent idea to raise the height of bathroom fixtures. My husband suffers from a permanent back injury and regular height fixtures are simply too low for easy use. The standard height for new benches at our place is 1200mm from floor level.
