UK shower manufacturer and designer, Roman Limited, have been shortlisted for two prestigious products awards over the last few weeks, with the winners of both to be announced later this month.The manufacturer’s newly launched Decem Collection of luxury 10mm thick glass Shower Enclosures has been shortlisted as Product of the Year at the Northern Design Awards, which take place in Manchester on the 22nd November.
Also shortlisted for Plumbing Product of the year, at the Build It awards, is their Roman Shield Complete Tanking Kit, which offers a quick and easy way to install a water-tight wetroom. The Kit has been shortlisted alongside two other products and the winner will be revealed on the 21st November.
Roman’s Complete Tanking Kit is no strange to awards and has previously been the recipient of two other product awards, including the Homebuilding and Renovating Bathroom Product of the Year and the Kitchen’s, Bedrooms and Bathrooms Reader’s Choice Award for Best Bathroom Product.
The Decem Collection, which is manufactured at Roman’s UK headquarters in County Durham, was launched in August this year and so far the feedback from Roman’s customers has been fantastic, with displays quickly being established UK-wide. The bespoke-ability of the range has also stimulated much interest from the contract market, with products being created over-height up to 2700mm now being a possibility.
The Decem Range incorporates a selection of Hinged Door Enclosures, Wetroom Panels and a power shower approved designer Bath Screen. Uniquely the range offers a series of design options, allowing end users to pick between curved or square hardware, there is optional bracing supplied as standard and the Wetroom Panels offer a choice of concealed or standard profiles, with an optional return panel.
The Company has also previously won a Northern Design Award for their Sculptures Range of enclosures.
David Osborne, Managing Director at Roman, commented: “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for two totally different product awards within such a short-space of time. The Build It Awards highlight products which are practical and easy to use, to make the installer’s life simple; whereas the Northern Design Awards focus on innovative and stunning product design. We are delighted to see that our product range fits into both of these briefs.
“We are particularly excited about the recognition of our new Decem Range for the Northern Design Awards – this is a range we have carefully developed and nurtured; that we have not only designed, but that we have also expertly manufactured right here in the UK. It’s great to see recognition from an awarding body going to a British manufacturer, highlighting home-grown talent. This range is a culmination of everything we have learnt about showering over the last 28 years, so to have been shortlisted for an award in these early stages after launch is fantastic. We’re looking forward to hearing the results later this month.”
