Methven supply Wigan & Leigh Homes with tapware and showering solutions
Methven UK is supplying bathroom brassware and showering solutions to Wigan and Leigh Homes.
The housing company - an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) which manages around 22,400 council owned properties on behalf of Wigan Council – is undertaking a five year bathroom refurbishment programme across its entire property portfolio. Following a competitive tender Methven was asked to provide a selection of bathroom brassware and shower products, via the Procure Plus framework, for Wigan and Leigh Homes tenants to choose from.
During the refurbishment programme tenants are offered a ‘choice sheet’ from which they can select a number of products including tiles, taps and showers.
Methven is providing a choice of two ranges of bath and basin taps plus a thermostatic bath shower mixer.
The Insignia basin (shown above) and bath taps are a sleek, modern tap featuring a rounded chrome pillar and straight spout, with a lever handle. The Milan tap collection is a more traditional style with a cross handle and gently curved pillar and spout. Both ranges offer 1/4 turn ceramic disc technology for smooth on/off and flow operation.
Tenants can also choose the Kiri Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer, which comes complete with a Kiri Satinjet® handset. This solid architectural style shower mixer is also gentle on the environment as the Kiri showerhead utilises Methven’s exclusive Satinjet technology. Unlike conventional showers, Satinjet uses twin-jet technology to create optimum water droplet size and pressure and can save the tenant up to 50% on hot water energy costs and up to 55% on the cost of water used in the shower. * The shower mixer meets TMV2 Buildcert standards – protecting families from the risk of scolding.
Trevor Smith, group manager for planned works at Wigan and Leigh Housing, said: “This is a major refurbishment programme for us and improving the specification of our brassware and shower systems was important both to us and tenants. Partnering with manufacturers such as Methven is a key part of our strategy and when managing such a large number of properties, we must be able to rely on the products we specify.”
*water flow pressure varies in different locations. Areas with low pressure will produce lower flow rates. The savings percentage indicated applies only to a shower flowing at 9 litres per minute.
