A recent partnership between Derby Homes and War Memorial Village Derby saw the development of housing to support local ex-service personnel, specifically equipped for those with disabilities. The village offers residents affordable housing with a friendly community atmosphere and green spaces such as communal gardens, and it’s located within easy reach of Derby city centre.
The project expanded Derby Homes current offering with nine, one-bedroom bungalows. The project, completed in December 2020, specified Mira Showers based on its reputation for providing reliable and innovative bathing facilities.
Dave Pickering, Derby Homes Site Manager, said his experience working with Mira Showers went beyond his expectations and the company will be sure to return to Mira in the future.
“The Mira Assist range is a fantastic product. It was incredibly easy to fit with the fix fast fix kits, and the installation went very smoothly, with Mira being such a reliable brand with good customer service to back up the product. Going forward, we’ll definitely be returning to Mira and the Mira Assist range for any new build projects.”
Mira provided mixers and taps from its Mira Assist range, a selection of products developed for long-lasting and safer showering and designed to enhance the everyday shower experience and to meet every need of its users.
Building on Mira’s 100 years of innovation and expertise, the new Mira Assist mixer range incorporates easy to grip, assistive controls for those with reduced dexterity. The Assist range includes a thermostatic mixer shower, Bath Shower Mixer and Bath Filler for a complete safety-first range, without compromising on user experience.
Mira’s Assist range combines patented technology and enhanced safety features to deliver consistent performance. With the customer front of mind, Mira’s CoolShieldTM technology keeps the whole valve cool to touch, reducing the risk of scalding. Mira mixers also contain the Mira Nano-T cartridge, an advanced cartridge for reliable, precise, and enhanced thermostatic control, tested to 200,000 life cycles for reliable performance. These features come as standard in all Mira bar valves.
Every Mira mixer is WRAS approved and is also compliant with TMV2’s new standard, which is why Derby Homes included Mira in its new build project.
In addition to the accessible functionality of the mixers and taps, the Mira Assist range is easy to install thanks to its fast first fix kit, helping to ensure the development was completed on schedule.
Dean Develing – Specification Manager, Community Housing and Adaptations, at Mira Showers commented:
“We really value this collaboration with Derby Homes and are incredibly proud to be able to support this project with our new Assist range. We are thrilled to hear that Derby Homes will be looking to Mira for their future projects and cannot wait to work with them again. The War Memorial Village is testament to Derby Homes and the quality of build and service provided.”
