Triton strengthens Omnicare range of electric showers with new features
Continuing its commitment to inclusive bathroom solutions, Triton has unveiled its new and improved family of Omnicare thermostatic electric care showers.
The popular Omnicare and Omnicare Design options have been updated to incorporate innovative new features that continue to place user accessibility and safety at the heart of their design.
In line with the wider Omnicare collection, the two upgraded units feature an updated cover design, in addition to a single hand slider to facilitate easy customisation for those with limited dexterity.
A safety function allows temperature to be set internally to a maximum of 43°C, whilst allowing full rotation of the temperature dial. To ensure water remains at a safe temperature, water is constantly regulated within +/- 1°C.

Facilitating ease of use, a large soft push Start/Stop button includes illumination on power and offers audible feedback. In addition, the Omnicare Design continues to offer a tactile temperature dial, which utilises soft grey tones and bold markings to help those with visual impairment.
For complete peace of mind, Omnicare and Omnicare Design have been expertly and independently tested. As a result, both solutions carry both RNIB and BEAB Care approvals for safety and performance, as well as being designed in conjunction with a professional Occupational Therapist to provide a safe and inclusive showering experience for any user.
With hygiene standards as important as ever, the showers are supplied with an easy clean five-spray pattern showerhead with a removable spray plate, making maintenance quick and efficient. The Omnicare model is available with an extended 680mm riser rail kit, while the Omnicare Design unit comes with an extended 940mm option with 2m anti-twist hose and lower-level handset holder, providing flexibility for both seated and standing showering.
A number of accessories are also available with the Omnicare family, which can be specified and installed depending on specific user requirements. For example, an optional multi-purpose grab riser rail kit designed to withstand up to 150kg support load is available to assist end-users who may be unsteady on their feet, or those who need additional support within the shower environment.

Stuart Lane, Trade Sales Director at Triton Showers, comments: “Our latest improvements to the Omnicare family show our commitment to designing inclusive shower solutions suitable across a number of different settings – something that is more important than ever before.
“To make installation as simple as possible, it was key that we made Omnicare and Omnicare Design suitable for retrofit applications, so that they can easily replace outdated models or be implemented quickly in situations where a user’s needs may have changed. The versatility of the range is economical, ensuring replacement is simple and does not incur further work or costs during the installation process.”
The strengthened Omnicare range follows the launch of Triton’s recent Blueprint for Bathroom Safety guide, and illustrates the company’s commitment to providing high-performance showers for everyone, regardless of age or circumstance. As the number of people living in multi-generational housing continues to rise, this is an increasingly vital element of specification.
