A & E department toilet facilities are in constant use, around the clock. It is therefore of paramount importance that they remain in good working order and with minimal maintenance. Clean, smart, professional and safe sanitary appliances are really what is expected in this environment.

When it came to upgrading the facilities at Birmingham’s Heartlands Hospital, the decision was taken by the Estates Department to use WCs and urinals from stainless steel specialists, GEC Anderson Limited. Even though the cost of stainless steel sanitaryware can be significantly higher than alternatives, initially. However, when service life, maintenance issues and facilities out of service are taken into account, this cost can very soon be outweighed.
