Description

This clothes hook has a flat end with a button style. IFS16363.B is meant to offer a strong hanging point from doors or walls in facilities like washrooms or changing rooms. The brass is plated with chrome, so it is a polished finish. To perform a proper upkeep, please clean with soft cloths and keep abrasive solutions away. Note that the fixings are furnished in the box and the anchor of this door hook will be concealed.

Applications:Adapted bathrooms for disabled, Adapted toilets for disabled, Bathroom, Changing room, Gym, Hotel, Public Toilet


Regarding contrast, what colour surface is the best for this finish?

Every finish reflects some light, which is measured on a scale from 0 to 100 (called light reflectance value, LRV). The difference between the LRV of two finishes is the contrast.

One grab rail and the wall or floor should have at least 30 points of contrast in accessible sanitary areas inside buildings other than dwellings according to the English regulations (Approved Document M). People with visual impairments and conditions like dementia require that these fittings have this minimum contrast with the surrounding surfaces in case of average light situations.

For instance, in case of a white painted wall (value around 85), a grab rail with a darker finish should be chosen (55 at most), like brushed stainless steel or blue.

The examples below are illustrative.

Orange, light blue, light green40-60
Polished stainless steel40-60
Brushed stainless steel40-45
Proper green, blue or red, dark grey10-25
Black, brown5-10

Check the LRVs of the products involved by consulting the technical sheet your manufacturer may have provided you. If they have not, you could do some research on the exact shade of colour (there are dozens of blue, each one with a different value: cobalt, indigo, sky, teal...). Also consider the finish; metal, glass, wood or plastic do not cause the same reflectance. 

What are the pros and cons of each finish?

We have written a blogpost about it. Please, click here.

Regarding clothes hooks in accessible sanitary areas, what height is compliant with the regulations?

English building regulations concerning access are explained in Document M. In volume II, some images recreate the necessary location of the fittings in accessible toilets, cubicles for ambulant disabled users, changing rooms, shower rooms and bathrooms.

You can take a look directly at these diagrams (numbers 18, 21, 22, 23 and 25) in our post about Doc M grab rails. In all examples, the hook is fixed to the wall.

As a summary, we could say that clothes hooks should be set at 1400mm and/or 1050mm above the floor level.

Regarding Ireland, according to page 80 of Building for Everyone - 5. Sanitary Facilities, two contrasting clothes hooks should be provided in all sanitary premises within the range 1050mm to 1400mm (toilet cubicles) or 1050mm to 1700mm (accessible toilets) above floor level.

Can I fix this clothes hook to a bathroom stall or door?

To prevent the hook screw to go through the stall or door and get to the other side, these fixing panels should be a few centimetres thick.

If you do not care about the aesthetics in this case, feel free to place the clothes hook wherever is needed despite the thinness. Bear in mind that if the panel is weak, the hook will not support a lot of weight.
