Innovative dementia friendly sanitaryware
with intelligent water management.
Wallgate prides itself on meeting market demands and driving forward innovative solutions. We have been working with care specialists to develop a new care and dementia-friendly product range that could transform washroom solutions and water management within dementia and aged care facilities.
This range, the e-Suite, comprises of taps, WC flushing and shower controls. It has been developed specifically to aid independence and maintain dignity for someone living with dementia and will not only create a safer environment for patients, but also create a managed care system for care providers.
The e-Suite is completely normal in operation, has recognisable traditional fittings and can be used in a familiar managed environment. The traditional cross head tapware and lever flush handles are a conventional design ensuring they are in line with the HBN08-02 standard.View range Enquire today

WORKING WITH THE
The new e-Suite range was selected by St Andrew's Healthcare for their Lowther Dementia Redevelopment project, designed by P+HS Architects as a new dementia unit, opening to patients Autumn 2020.
P+HS Architects’ director Cath Lake said: “Our client St Andrew’s Healthcare is keen to implement emerging and innovative technologies in order to improve the care it provides to people with challenging dementia. Specification of the e-Suite brings opportunities of a recognisable sanitaryware specification, with the added value of automated controls and potential understanding of a person’s declining cognitive capacity.”
The Lowther Dementia Redevelopment uses the full e-Suite product range across the project and has over 80 sets of e-Suite taps installed throughout the 40 bedrooms, bathrooms and communal areas. The e-Suite is designed to aid independence and dignity for patients and people living with dementia, allowing them to feel confident to use the sanitaryware unaided.Enquire today
