All workplaces and public buildings require commercial washroom provisions. Compared with building a bathroom at home, there are some stark differences, especially where public safety is concerned. Not to mention, having a system that is built for the demands of continual use, and also takes into consideration the need for male and female facilities.

Aside from the actual items required for a public bathroom (toilets, sinks, doors, hand dryers etc) you also need to consider how each will be built into the space you have. The design needs to focus on safety, hygiene and style.

IPS units are an incredibly popular option for this reason. If you are planning a redesign of your commercial bathroom, here is everything you need to know about them.

IPS: Overview

IPS (integrated panel system) allows for the concealment of pipework within a washroom environment. Immediately, this gives a sleek and neat appearance to the look of the room. This is especially the case given the panels can be customised to any colour or style, such as your company colours. Or bright colours for schools!

However, concealing pipework isn’t just for show. When you consider hot pipes pose a hazard, as an employer it’s your job to reduce the risk of injury. If the pipes are located within a school or medical facility, it’s even more important to protect users. Pipes are also difficult to clean and can reduce the space you have to work with.

IPS units address all of the above pain points, with a view of creating a safe, sleek solution to public washroom design. The plumbing of sinks, toilets and taps will all be concealed in a way that’s not only easy to access but straightforward to clean too. Reducing the touchpoints in the room also makes for a much more hygienic space, which is paramount for any washroom.
