Refurbishment works across multiple blocks of the purpose built infantry barracks saw Rada supply a range of products including its T1 100 timed flow taps, VR2 CC high performance chrome-plated shower fittings with concealed pipework, and the revolutionary Rada Outlook digital mixing valve and washroom control system.Rada's T1 100 timed flow taps

Rada Outlook, launched into the marketplace in 2012, provides precise temperature and flow duration across any configuration of six showers or washbasin spouts, with touch or non-touch sensor options and is suited to both refurbishment and new build projects.

For multiple washrooms, up to 31 Outlook units can be connected to form a building–wide digitally controlled washroom water management solution using an IT Network or Building Management System, and with innovative functions including automatic duty flushing and supervised thermal disinfection settings, it can deliver significant manual resource and cost savings.

Penny Veale, Head of Media Operations for the Army (North and East regions), said: “The new washrooms form part of a large scale refurbishment programme currently being undertaken at Dale Barracks. Such a project requires high quality, safe and durable fixtures and fittings which will stand the test of time as well as complying with all legislative requirements. By working in conjunction with specialists such as Rada it ensures we achieve our refurbishment objectives in line with exact legislative, time and financial perameters”.

The Rada team worked closely with the MOD and Carillion Facilities Management on the project, providing site surveys and specification assistance.

Eoin McQuone, Senior Marketing Manager at Rada, explained: “Our early stage involvement in the Dale Barracks project enabled us to add value via a combination of expertly engineered mechanical and digital washroom solutions. All of the products specified, together with their associated sensors, were selected for their ability to meet the robust needs of a military environment, with user safety and whole life cost savings in mind. We are delighted to work with the MOD and Carillion Facilities Management and hope to work with them again in the future.”

Rada has been designing and developing commercial showering, washroom controls, fittings and systems for UK and overseas markets for over 80 years.

Outlook, one of its most recent innovations, has been designed to meet the demands of a wide range of environments including commercial washrooms, education, multi-residential and sports and leisure.  It incorporates the Rada T-LogicTM digital intelligence for efficient communication between components for ultimate safety and hygiene control.

In fact, Rada has been leading the way in developing washroom technology since introducing the very first thermostatic mixing valve into the UK back in the early 1930s.  It has achieved a number of ‘firsts’ including introducing the UK’s first thermostatic tap – Thermotap  in 1996, and the world’s first digital re-circulating water temperature control valve, the DRV80, in 2008, which was designed specifically to be the primary water temperature controller in a continuously pumped circulating hot water system in a commercial building.

All Rada products offer end users the very highest standards in safety, water and energy savings, reliability, precision and control.

Rada is part of the Kohler Co. family of companies, which includes Mira showers, and is located in Cheltenham, UK. For more information on Rada’s digital washroom expertise please visit
