bathrooms & washrooms HOIST ACCESSIBILITY TO INCREASE BOOKINGS Adding one extra fixture, which requires no space, in just a couple of bedrooms could significantly increase the number, length and spend of visitors. Under British Standards (BS8300:2009), for new buildings, a minimum 5% of bedrooms should have a fixed tracked‑hoist system or similar system giving the same degree of convenience and safety. But campaigners say few hotels, especially among the major chains, provide any rooms with hoist facilities, even in newbuild. the World Of Hospitality Clos-o-Mat (www.clos-o-mat.com) can provide, in-house, full design advice, supply, install and subsequent service/maintenance of the equipment, to help the leisure industry accommodate disabled needs, not just in bedrooms, but throughout the venue’s sanitary provision. The company is the UK’s brand leader in provision of toilet solutions that enable independence, dignity and control in domestic, public and commercial environments. www.clos-o-mat.com New Bauhaus-inspired bathroom fittings Samuel Heath’s new Landmark collection enables designers to achieve a totally co-ordinated finish for the increasingly popular industrial interiors theme in residential, commercial and high-spec hotel projects. Inspired by the simplified forms and functional efficiency redolent of the Bauhaus era, Landmark consists of two striking collections, Pure and Industrial:Landmark Pure is a well-balanced range with minimal embellishment and balanced proportions giving a clean, concise appearance, whilst exquisite detail provides the distinctive styling essential to luxury bathroom design. Landmark Industrial marries bold proportions with beautiful form, completed by machine detailing to create a contemporary, urban style with a practical, highly tactile finish. In keeping with the modern vogue for metallic, both collections are available in a range of matt and high-gloss finishes. Landmark can be seen at Samuel Heath’s Design Centre Chelsea Harbour showroom. Product details and stockists can be found at www.samuelheath.co.uk or by calling 0121 766 4200. 29
