Vado upgrades its thermostatic valves

April 9, 2014 | Comments Off

Vado has upgraded its thermostatic valves. All Vado thermostatic valves now have a new polymer cartridge fitted as standard. The cartridge prevents limescale build up, reducing maintenance and increasing the life span of the valve. Vado has also created two new valve designs to complement the popular Phase and Photon ranges, as well as reducing the size of the Notion and Mix valve fireplates. The Celsius square valve faceplates have a new look too, they now feature smaller plates with rounded corners. Re-designed mortar guards, which now feature markings to aid installation and tiling, complete the upgrade.

Taps for toddlers

January 14, 2014 | Comments Off

Anti-scald Kindergarden taps from Inta are proving to be a hit with tiny tots after Stafford-based nursery Dollymixtures had its washrooms fitted out with the company’s quirky character taps. The anti-scald bathroom manufacturer developed the taps for use alongside its Intamix thermostatic mixing valve to maintain pre-set temperatures and eliminate any risk of scalding – making them an ideal choice for children. Deb Jones, owner of Dollymixtures Nursery, says: “The taps have proven to be a real investment on our part, as the children certainly need less persuading when it comes to hand washing. On top of this, the peace of mind of knowing that a child absolutely cannot scald themselves is priceless.”
