Hudson Reed

Founded in 1982, Ultra Finishing started life as a plating service, operating out of a former air-raid shelter. Today it is one of the world’s most respected manufacturers and distributors of bathrooms, operating out of its own headquarters in Lancashire, and has a modern distribution centre, which employs over 150 people. Its product range stretches from finishing touches, such as taps and mirrors, right up to major bathroom appliances such as baths and showers.

Even though Hudson Reed has massively expanded its offering since those early days, its commitment to quality remains exactly the same, which is why it offers a 20-year guarantee on all its products (unless otherwise stated).

Hudson Reed is probably best known for its Valquest technology and its Pearlstone shower trays. The former has become a key safety feature since it ensures that Hudson Reed showers maintain a constant temperature and hence safeguards against both scalding and users being drenched in cold water. This is particularly important given the power of some of the showers on the market today. Both of these are made in the UK and Hudson Reed is committed to supporting the “Made in Britain” scheme.

In addition to setting the highest standards in manufacturing, Hudson Reed also demonstrates the highest standards with regard to the environment and as an employer. For example, Hudson Reed has created a range of eco-friendly products, which are offered at affordable prices to show that environmentally-friendly options can also be economical ones. It aims to minimize the amount of waste it produces and recycles as much as possible. Hudson Reed also strives to be a “best-in-breed” employer and does everything it can to encourage staff development both inside and outside the workplace, providing funding and training to support its employees on their path to personal and professional growth. The company is also known for their charitable endeavours and, in particular, for its support of local charities.

How does the lowest price promise work - The best service and price, there must be a catch?

 

Nope - there is no catch. We check our prices regularly to ensure we are the best price out there. In the unlikely event you do find it cheaper. We'll not only match it, we'll beat it as a little thank you for alerting us to the price. The price must be a genuine advertised price, viewable to the public and unfortunately, we cannot match verbal agreements/offers or auctions or verbal offers, that's all there is to it. For more information Please see out terms page

 

What is the policy for returns?

 

Not happy with a product - No problem. we offer a full 14 days returns policy for non-customised orders. Simply get in touch with us for a returns reference and we'll set it in motion.

 

What does 'parts warranty' mean?

 

Where quoted - Many of the items on our site comes with a 'parts warranty'. If any fault occurs, we operate a no quibble warranty system where we will send any required replacement parts to you on a next day delivery service where possible, completely free of charge for a period of your warranty from the date of purchase or installation. (Please retain your original invoice number to validate this) Warranty registration with the relevant manufacturer is necessary in all cases

 

What warranty do I get?

 

Like all products from legitimate manufacturers the warranty for them is carried and covered by that manufacturer - The duration of any warranty is advised on the items page. You should in all cases check the manufacturers page for further warranty terms as well as registering any warranty once an item has been received where applicable. 

 

How Do The Large Items Arrive?

LArge items are often supplied in a number of boxes (normally 3-5).  All boxes are able to pass through all standard doorways if the item is intended for indoor use. Care and thought should be given to if and how the boxes/contents will navigate stairwells. Often stairwells are narrow and have lower height regions, corners and banisters though the boxes that come will be able to be carried in homes unless there is a very unusual set up.

 

What Electric Connection Do The Steam Showers Require?

All of our Steam Showers require a single 13amp connection. Whirlpool showers, require 2 x 13amp.The shower should be connected via isolated fused spurs. If your mains board (consumer unit) has RCDs fitted, then REMOVE the ones fitted to the power cables of the shower. Must of our Hydro shower do not require an electrical connection, for those that have lights or radio etc, these units require 1 electrical connection. The hydro showers that do have electronics are transformed down to a safe 12volts. 

 

What Are The Water Pressure Requirements For The Showers?

Our showers require between 1 and 3 bar of pressure at the unit to operate. For optimum results 2-3 bar is recommended. Please note that all Steam Cabins require a flow rate of at least 14-16 litres per minute. The water supply to the unit must also be balanced.

If you have a combi boiler, this typically provides water at a pressure suitable for the shower, but if you are unsure, ask you plumber to check the pressure for you. If you have a Combination (combi) boilder, you WILL need a PEV. (Pressure Equalisation Valve)If you have gravity fed water, or you water pressure is not high enough, then you will need to fit a pump.

How Much Does It Cost to Run The Steam Function?

Based on current costs for electricity to operate the steam function for a recommended maximum of half and hour is around 30 pence. Compare this to the cost of visiting a Sauna in a Health Spa etc.
