Shower Traps with Top Access
All McAlpine shower traps with Top Access surpass the minimum required flow rate of 24 litres per minute when tested in accordance with clause 5 of BS EN 274-2:2002.
McAlpine flow rates are calculated when the Traps are tested under a constant 15mm head of water. Some manufacturers quote test results when their Traps have been tested under a constant 120mm head of water.
This is confusing and misleading as 120mm head of water in relation to shower tray installations is not normally achievable on modern shower trays.
However, it should be noted that the McAlpine High Flow High Performance and Vertical Outlet range of Shower Traps, have a discharge rate exceeding 50 litres per minute when tested under a constant 15mm head of water.
