Following an incident with a service user injuring themselves on a shower mixer unit, Polycoversdirect were asked to design a unit to eliminate any further risk.
Polycoversdirect can now produce shower mixer covers to suit almost any surface mounted shower mixer valve. The inlet water temperature of a mixer unit can be much higher than the permitted 43 degrees, and whilst the mixer unit will ensure the water from the head can never reach dangerous levels, the mixer unit itself can eventually reach the temperature of the hot water input. By covering the hot surface you can be sure your service user can stay in the shower without fear of touching a surface whose temperature is above the recommended level. Ask us for details of a cover for your specific unit - if we don't have one currently available we will be happy to design one for you at no extra cost.
