Provides details of minimum requirements to ensure that the facility provided is adequate and safe. Does not cover shower units in boats and caravans nor for the use of disabled persons.

This Part of BS 6340 provides guidance on the choice of shower units and their components for use in private dwellings. Shower units in touring caravans and in boats are not covered.

It provides details of minimum requirements to ensure that the facility provided is adequate and safe. It does not cover requirements for disabled persons and where the shower unit is to be used by a disabled person in a private dwelling, it may be appropriate to seek advice from the local authority social services department. Reference may also be made to specialist publications1). Where the shower will be used by those in wheelchairs or by others with limited mobility, guidance on this aspect of access can be found in BS 5810.

NOTE The titles of the publications referred to in this Part of BS 6340 are listed on the inside back cover.
