Crombie Plumbing and Heating


Crombie Plumbing and Heating, based in Fife, Scotland specialises in installing multi-generational showering solutions to homes in need of adaptations. With support from local authority grants, these upgrades cater to residents’ requirements for shower systems with additional safety precautions. Taking this into consideration Crombie chose Triton Omnicare Design Thermostatic Electric Shower for their adaptations works.

“When in need of showers for adaptations or care scenarios, we know we can rely on Triton both to provide suitable options which are easy to install, as well as offer timely technical support when needed. Working with such an established brand that supports installers and customers every step of the way gives us peace of mind and minimises the time it takes to complete the job.

“For instance, when working on our latest project with Kingdom Housing Association for residential homes in Fife that needed to be adapted for vulnerable residents’ ease of use, we recommended Triton’s Elina TMV3 Inclusive Bar Mixer Shower and Grab Rail. The unit comes with specially designed features that adhere to the strict regulations in place. It is especially beneficial for older generations due to the inclusion of a dual-purpose grab riser rail which can withstand up to 150kg, providing extra reassurance for carers.

“We often receive requests for the Triton Elina TMV3 Inclusive Bar Mixer Shower and Grab due to the grab rail and vital support it offers. On top of this, both the Elina and Omnicare lines have proven to be reliable and really quick to install.”

How to make bathrooms fit for purpose for all generations

We have created a safety blueprint guide which considers the movement towards multi-generational living in the UK, and explores the key elements of bathroom safety. It outlines the most important factors for those responsible with taking an ‘end-user first’ approach to bathroom and shower specification, providing a framework for the kind of practical steps that occupational therapists, supply chain, maintenance and contracts managers can take.

What the guide covers

  • Social housing supply and demand
  • The UKs demographic shift
  • Introducing the PASA test – our unique tool to help shower specification
  • Insight from a leading Occupational Therapist
  • Key elements of the safe bathroom
  • And much more!
