DOC M Compliance

For the arrangement of the shower controls and adjustable head heights, 3 current regulatory documents advise slightly different configurations. From a manufacturing perspective, it is extremely difficult to manufacture a product that meets all of these documents. Below is a summary of the requirements for each document (note, in particular, the inclusion/omission and mounting heights of the fixed shower head).

Please read our section on Regulations for more information.
