Armitage Shanks, the iconic leading British brand in commercial bathrooms, sanitaryware and washroom installations, has launched a new and updated collection of Utility Taps.

The new collection offers an array of different options when it comes to utility taps, which are ideal for a variety of demanding applications, workplaces, spaces - and the tough demands that they each entail.

Featuring updated Bib taps, Pillar taps and Self-closing taps, the new Armitage Shanks Utility range offers a whole host of new features, such as an innovative self-centralising feature, making bib taps quicker to install with maximum precision.

With 180-degree ceramic discs, plus a host of other options across the range - such as Armitage Shanks’ renowned water-saving designs - the Nimbus 21 bib taps with spray outlet and Sandringham 21 self-closing taps can help you to meet environmental obligations, as well as save money.

Other new key features in the range include bib taps with different outlets, pillar and high neck variants, and anti-vandal features.

In acknowledgment that every environment is different, it offer several key product options in the collection, suitable for different applications and environments including:

  • Bib taps: Markwik 21 for healthcare; with Nimbus 21 and Alterna 21 for janitorial and cleaner’s sinks

  • Pillar taps: Alterna 21 for social housing, residential homes, schools and commercial kitchens

  • Self-closing taps: Sandringham 21 for schools, general washrooms and public hand washing areas

New Self-Centralising Installation Feature

Consistently at the forefront of industry innovation, Armitage Shanks was founded 200 years ago on the philosophy of producing sanitaryware of exceptional quality and led by innovation to provide the best solutions.

The new Armitage Shanks Utility fittings range is no exception to this and features new ‘self-centralising installation’, which means that fitting bib taps is faster and easier than ever.

The new, unique self-centralising feature simply makes sure the tap’s always upright after tightening.

Expert installers will agree that traditional alignment can be quite hit and miss – the tap screws into the wall mount and is aligned by either tightening it a little more or adding more PTFE tape.

Jeff Williams of Armitage Shanks, said: "Hard-working areas need hard-working taps – and they don’t come tougher than the new and improved Armitage Shanks Utility collection.

"Commercial durability is a given but Armitage Shanks products are also designed with the performance and legislative demands of the broader market in mind – this versatility allows for a mix and match approach to create unique bathrooms and washrooms in any market sector.

"Armitage Shanks has built a reputation on the design, performance and durability of its products, and through its expertise in their application.

"All of our taps, mixers and fittings carry a five year warranty, and are supported by one of the best technical teams in the industry - meaning that from independent installers or to high profile international organisations, you are investing in a high quality product that you can stake your own reputation on."
