Hansgrohe leads the way to WRAS Compliance

Hansgrohe has a new RIBA approved core curriculum CPD about WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) designed to share information about the Water Regulations and the importance of compliance to ensure successful project specifications. 

When installing any product which carries or delivers water from the main supply it is a legal requirement that it complies with Regulation 4 of the ‘Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations’. WRAS Product Approval is the best way to demonstrate compliance as it is awarded by representatives of the water suppliers who enforce the Regulations and is therefore accepted by every water supplier in the UK.

Hansgrohe has over 800 WRAS approved products across a wide range of collections, award-winning designs and price-points. This impressive figure represents an investment of over £2m and is more than double the number of approvals compared to the next closest bathroom fittings manufacturer operating in the UK market.

The ‘Why WRAS’ CPD also explores the risk of non-compliance with the Regulations which can have far reaching implications across all the stakeholders involved throughout each of the project phases. The Regulations apply to all commercial buildings such as hotels, large housing projects and offices.

Jay Phillips, Head of Projects, comments, “The WRAS CPD offers invaluable expertise to anyone who specifies, designs or selects products within the bathroom and will help to ensure they have selected approved products for the job in hand. It is no longer a case of only the installer/contractor needing to be aware of products selected within the bathroom. When it comes to compliance with the Water Regulations a number of people across the project phases need to be aware; such as interior designers, architects and other project professionals. Our aim with our CPD is to expertly support professionals involved with specification by helping them save time, deliver peace of mind and simplify the WRAS selection in order to secure successful specification.”

As a manufacturer, Hansgrohe offers certification across the Axor and Hansgrohe portfolio ensuring specifiers have options across all budgets and design styles, all of which is backed by a comprehensive five year guarantee.
