In response to consumer and commercial sector design demands, Mira Showers – the UK’s leading manufacturer of showering products and accessories – has introduced a selection of contemporary colour choices to its popular Flight Safe range of anti-slip shower trays.
Aimed at boutique and premium hotels, discerning yet vulnerable home-owners and on-trend retail showrooms; Flight Safe now combines showering safety confidence with understated, subtle design in its new colours of Anthracite Grey, Titanium Grey and Taupe – as well as classic white. The colours are offered in nine of the best-selling square, rectangle and quadrant sizes. Beyond style, Flight Safe is also ideal for creating a ‘minimalist ‘wet room’ look, without the associated installation hassles, being just 40mm high as opposed to the standard tray height of 90mm.
In respect of showering safety, the range has been independently certified to exceed the most stringent anti-slip test available – Class C DIN 51097. This test consists of inclining a tray made slippery with soap and water until a barefoot subject slips off. To gain Class C, the subject must remain standing when the tray is at an angle of 24o yet, with Flight Safe, this was possible at 30o.
This test not only shows how well Mira’s anti-slip finish performs, but also provides third party certification that may well help deter potential litigation: a peace-of-mind boon for those with duties of care, such as hoteliers and care home owners.
Further to its integral Mira Safe anti-slip finish, the range also has anti-bacterial BioCote® incorporated into its material. BioCote® stops discolouration, and reduces bacteria and mould growth by up to 99.9%. Being homogenous with the tray’s acrylic surface, BioCote® never wears nor peel offs, nor washes away; so the trays retain their anti-bacterial properties for life.
Durable and easy to maintain, the Mira Flight Safe range is made from three main components: an acrylic-capped ABS plastic top – so it resists chipping and scratches to retain its aesthetic for life; a recycled ABS plastic bottom sheet; and, sandwiched between the two, a stone and resin mixture to give strength and rigidity. Due to this unique sandwich construction, it is also lighter and easier to handle during installation – up to 20% lighter than equivalent products made from acrylic-capped resin stone.
Made in Mira’s state of the art production facility in 2017 City of Culture Hull, these additional products add a new dimension of choice and style to the extremely successful Flight range of shower trays and wall panels.
