Elevate and Freeglide: Raising the Bar for Half-Height Doors


Impey’s new and exclusive Elevate and Freeglide half-height shower doors are available from 17 November.

 

Since recent field trials took place, Impey’s Elevate and Freeglide half-height shower doors have been eagerly awaited by the adaptations market.

Elevate and Freeglide are the first half-height shower doors that Impey has released since the company recently took their door design and manufacturing in-house. Boasting top-of-the-range usability and functionality, both models showcase an attractive appearance whilst integrating new and innovative, market-leading features.

Exclusively available from Impey, both models were designed, streamlined and manufactured by Impey’s sister company, Coram – well known and respected as one of the UK’s foremost shower enclosure producers. The design team has ensured that both Elevate and Freeglide half-height shower doors incorporate a multitude of significant benefits to users and carers, as well as being quick and easy to install.
Bespoke sizes are available for both models, to suit unusual project requirements or non-standard spaces.
Both of Impey’s new half-height doors are ideal for fast and simple specification, with next-day delivery offered on all standard orders.
Combined with a highly-competitive pricing structure, peace of mind is also ensured by Impey’s lifetime guarantee and fully-trained customer care team, who are on hand to offer expert help and advice if needed.

We are Wetrooms - Sheffield, Hillsborough Stadium – Wednesday 13th July 2016


Following the new for 2016 training format, Impey were delighted to welcome 20 attendees to Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, including specifiers, showroom owners and predominantly installers for the latest date in the #wearewetrooms training tour led by Impey’s ‘Technical Manager’ Shaun Hunt.

Experience levels within the group varied between those who have fitted Impey products before, and those who have never previously fitted a wetroom, looking to increase their confidence in the concept of a wetroom, or simply wishing to find out more about the range of solutions on offer from Impey and why we’re considered the installers choice. As well as most attendees identifying themselves as plumbers or bathroom specialists, we are seeing a noticeable increase in the number of tilers attending, with another 2 or 3 at Sheffield looking to add wetroom systems to their repertoire.

In what appears to be a running theme, our waterproofing membrane ‘WaterGuard’ dominated discussions during tea breaks, with attendees immediately seeing the benefits of the leak free solution, including the fact that no drying time is required and the peace of mind of the lifetime guarantee. Particularly impressed by WaterGuard, was Robert Adamson who runs R&K Installations alongside the showroom at Mobile Country Bathrooms, www.mobilecountrybathrooms.co.uk

During the practical demonstrations after lunch (supplied by the brilliant catering team at Sheffield Wednesday FC), the growing consensus that our products can save days in installation time came to fruition. One attendee claimed a previous wetroom effort with a competitor product took up to two weeks including tiling. Many have still not before seen the 360° rotating waste of the ‘Aqua-Dec EasyFit’ avoiding obstacles such as joists or pipework, saving both time and money when potentially calling out gas or electrical engineers.
Impey are looking forward to the next date of the tour, where we will welcome attendees in Scotland to Celtic Park in Glasgow on the 14th of September to be educated in the world of wetrooms.

Impey provides the right solution for occupational therapist Rachel Booth




Rachel Booth, clinical lead OT in mental health and outgoing chair of the British association of occupational therapy Northern and Yorkshire region, recently had an Impey wetroom installed within her home to better suit her needs.

Having come across the Impey brand during the College of Occupational Therapists Conference in Glasgow several years ago, Rachel is very much aware of Impey’s versatile range of showering solutions for people with mobility difficulties.

Rachel has right hemiplegia, a condition that affects one side of her body in particularly her balance, muscle tone and strength which means she has struggled getting in and out of the shower for some time.

Sadly, after breaking her right leg at Christmas it really affected Rachel’s mobility and as recovery was slow, she felt it was time to change her bathroom to better suit her needs. Keen to have a modern functional design without looking clinical, it was important that the space was aesthetically pleasing so that it was an environment she’d want to spend time in.

As stepping into a shower unit was one of the main problems, Rachel looked into the option of a wetroom which would help take away the barriers she was currently experiencing. With guidance from a local plumber, he recommended Impey’s Level-Dec EasyFit wetroom floor former which can be easily fitted on to wood and concrete floors, on any storey.  

The Level-Dec EasyFit.
The Level-Dec has revolutionised wetroom installations as its high glass content SMC means that it is able to withstand up to 300kg without the need for under boarding, reducing both installation time and cost. The EasyFit shower plate is also a unique feature and can rotate 360 degrees to avoid all under floor wetroom obstructions ideal for ease of installation. The bespoke rotating drain features three locating rings, to provide superior hold between the Dec and the rotating drain plate.

Following the quick installation, the necessary waterproofing was fitted which enabled the rest of the bathroom to be completed.

Rachel also opted for an Impey Supreme Glass Shower Screen which provides a luxurious appearance, whilst also offering practical support and ease of entry. The 8mm safety glass panels are two metres high, available in five widths and three glass finishes. They are supported by a polished aluminium column, which can be ceiling fixed, or wall braced. The column is secured to the floor with an innovative new fitting that requires no screws and can also be easily removed.

 
Pleased with how her new wetroom has turned out, Rachel is already telling friends and family the benefits of her new bathroom, with many saying they would consider this particular style if they come to update their space as it doesn’t just meet the needs of people with a disability, it is easier to keep clean and maintain.
