Ideal Standard's little van

Ideal Standard is taking its bespoke offering for housebuilders and developers on the road. The Little Van of Big Ideas is returning for 18 weeks this summer to showcase the manufacturer’s evolving family of products and services, which can be adapted to meet the needs of every project. 

The mobile showroom will give regional housebuilders and developers across the UK the opportunity to experience the latest ideas and solutions in bathroom design. During each personalised appointment, Ideal Standard’s team of experts will be on hand to offer tailored advice, to help inform and overcome strategic and practical issues being faced by visitors on their projects. 

As well as taking advantage of personalised advice and expertise, visitors will also be able to experience first-hand Ideal Standard’s wide range of products, which have been developed to offer a complete solution for new build residential projects. 

One such solution is the Concept Easybox Slim thermostatic mixer. It has been designed specifically to meet the needs of housebuilders and developers who are dealing with limited space in bathrooms. The mixer fits into a 43mm wall cavity, is quick and easy to install, and offers superior water tightness thanks to its double sealing throughout.
