Leading The Way In BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a new and collaborative approach to designing buildings by using 3D computer models which are loaded with product data.

It was created as a way to help construction industries work in a more efficient way.

Ideal Standard Group partnered with BIMObject.com, the world’s leading BIM content platform.

This partnership resulted in over 5,000 models being made available offering realistic and high definition images created from original manufactured drawings.

They models are delivered in different formats such as Revit, ArchiCAD … etc

Long Lasting Fittings

They engineer their fittings in Germany and manufacture them in Europe from solid

brass, well-proven metals and modern plastic materials.

This ensures every product that leaves their plants are robust, hard-wearing and

made according to the highest standards.

Quality Ceramics

With high-tech pressure casting, automated glaze spraying and environmentally efficient kilns.

Every product is made to the very highest standards using vitreous china and fine fire clay.

They continually work to improve the quality of their ceramics.

Their laboratory checks raw materials on arrival and their vitreous china slip is tested daily.

By making small incremental changes, they now achieve over 85% first fire yield – top performing in the industry.
