Medium Water Pressure
Water systems operating at a pressure between 0.5 and 0.9 bar are considered medium pressure. Products usually come labelled if they are suitable for use in medium pressure.
High Water Pressure
Water systems operating at 1.0 bar or higher pressure are considered high-pressure systems. Products usually come labelled if they are suitable to use under such pressure.
Flexible Tail Pipes
Flexible Tails, or "Flexi" Tails, are one of the easiest methods to connect the plumbing pipework to the tap fitting. Mixers generally have two tails, one for the hot water supply and the other for the cold. These tailpipes consist of rubber inside a braided metal and come in many sizes.
Ceramic Disc Cartridge
It has two ceramic discs, one fixed in place and the other moveable with the tap or valve handle. It is the most common technology used in modern tapware as it offers unmatched advantages such as no leaks and drips and saves on water and money.
As the name suggests, a flow regulator is a simple device designed to regulate water flow to a predetermined level. The job of a flow regulator is to stop water wastage. For instance, if the regular flow rate through a tap is 20 litres per minute, a flow regulator can reduce the flow rate between 6 to 12 litres per minute to complete the desired chore without feeling low pressure.
WRAS Approved Product
WRAS Approval means that the particular water fitting or product complies with or meets the requirements specified by the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws. Such compliance is based on certain tests that prove that the product or fitting does not cause waste, misuse, contamination or undue consumption of the public water supply system in the UK.

Charging / Shaver Socket
The bathroom mirrors or cabinets are conveniently fitted with plugs (sockets) for charging small appliances. These are usually 240V sockets, suitable for charging shavers, electric toothbrushes, and the like, and are controlled independently by an on/off switch within the mirror or the cabinet.
An Ingress Protection (IP) Rating is code manufacturers use to indicate how well a product is protected against water and solid particles like dust. Products rated IP44 are safe from particles larger than 1mm and can withstand water splashes, making them ideal for use in bathrooms, where steam, dampness and splashes are inevitable.
CE Certified Product
CE mark meets the prescribed safety, health and environmental protection requirements and all appropriate EU requirements. This mark is mandatory for products designed, made and sold in the European Economic Area.
The Integrated PIR sensor lights up the unit when movement is detected. It automatically switches off after 10 seconds when there is no movement.
Energy-Efficient LED Light
LED (light-emitting diode) lights in bathroom mirrors use considerably less energy than regular incandescent bulbs to produce light.
Rigid Furniture - Pre-Assembled
Rigid or pre-assembled furniture is any bathroom unit that is ready to install. These arrive entirely constructed with pre-drilled holes and labelled parts making the furniture installation process quick and easy. It helps you save money on labour, and you get a higher-quality product. These are also an excellent choice for anyone looking for a new storage unit that fits their bathroom decor.

It is a compound of glass and silica-based materials applied as a coat on porcelain products such as WC pans, urinals, baths and basins to protect them from scratches and stains as an anti-vandal measure.
When the pan has piping at the back, inside the wall, it is called a horizontal outlet toilet or pan. As the cisterns are concealed or placed against the wall, most plumbing is hidden out of sight.
It is a toilet where the plumbing exits through the floor. Such toilets should be placed a few inches higher than the rest of the floor to compensate for the plumbing.
Soft-closing seats are a new alternative to classic toilet seats. Their modern design allows them to close slowly, while their controlled manner of closing does not require you to assist them. It also shuts automatically, allowing it to come down at a pace that does not make much noise.
It is the short form of a British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) and is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. It is a standard unit against which radiator efficiency is measured.
Unit of power to measure electric current.
Stainless Steel Material
Stainless Steel is an iron alloy with anti-rust and anti-corrosive properties, unlike iron. It contains a minimum of 10.5% of chromium and less than 1.2% of carbon and other metal alloys. Its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties can be improved by adding nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium, or manganese. This robust, hygienic, hard-wearing base material is popular in the construction of steel products.
These radiators or towel warmers can run on a conventional gas-powered central heating system or via your mains electrical supply. You can choose whether or not you want your radiator or towel warmer to come on independently of your central heating system, which is especially useful in summer.

Melamine Faced Chipboard
Melamine Faced Chipboard or MFC is a type of engineered wood with a smooth surface. It is made using wood chips, then formed into particle board using heat and pressure and bonded to melamine resin impregnated paper. The Melamine layer makes it waterproof, and helps resist scratches, and increases the aesthetics. It is cheaper than MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard.
