Rada top of the class with Cambridge University appointment

Rada, the experts in commercial showering and washroom controls, has supplied its market-leading products for the refurbishment of six Cambridge University colleges.

Students, fellows and faculty at the sites, which include the world renowned King’s and Jesus Colleges – will benefit from the use of Rada’s robust washroom products in accommodation blocks.

A range of Rada shower valves and associated fittings featured within the refurbishment works at Cambridge University’s Jesus College, Wolfson College, Selwyn College, St John’s College, King’s College and Downing College.

The large scale project saw many Rada products specified and installed during the University’s 2012 summer break, with more than 200 Rada V12 exposed thermostatic shower valves with accompanying chrome fittings fitted at Selwyn College alone.

The valves regulate flow to allow for increased water savings, and are Buildcert TMV3 scheme approved. For additional comfort, the exposed V12 option features Rada’s Insutech™ technology, which reduces the surface temperature to a safe level to avoid excessive heat and resultant scalding.

Tim Parr, Commercial Specification Manager at Rada, added: “We are passionate about providing educational facilities with reliable, robust washroom solutions and it has been a privilege to deliver this multi-site project in conjunction with the estates teams at Cambridge University.  By working together from an early stage, the most effective solutions for each college were quickly identified and the installation process ran smoothly with minimum disruption to residents across the colleges.”
