Wall Hung Hand Basin

Wall hung basins, as the name implies, are hung directly on the wall.

With larger hand basins the bowl rests on a special semi-pedestal that holds up the basin and covers the basin waste pipe, as demonstrated in this suite from Victoriaplumb below - click their logo to find out more.

Wall hung basins have no pedestal touching the floor and used in conjuction with a wall hung toilet (as above) or with a standard close coupled toilet (as below) to make the room feel more "open". This can be taken into consideration when establishing a design for a small bathroom.

Small cloakroom basins (which can also be used in an en-suite bathroom if space is limited) are attached using special brackets. The Ideal Standard basin which follows is available from Plumbworld - click the image for more details

When installing a wall hung basin it is important to ensure that that the wall on which it is mounted is structurally sound, as it will take all of the load.

Positioning this type of hand basin is also important as the waste pipe needs to exit through the wall directly behind the basin. To avoid the supply pipes being visible they should feed the basin from behind the wall.
