Leading the way on accessible design: How our product design team works

Whether you’re the owner or manager of a venue with accessible design requirements, or an architect/specifier tasked with developing disabled bathroom spaces, you need to know that the products you choose have been developed with quality and compliance in mind.

As a manufacturer of Doc M packs and other accessible products, NYMAS Group is ideally placed to provide not only the physical items you need to create disabled bathrooms, but also the technical support, guidance and peace of mind you need as a professional when working on accessible projects.

These important functions of our business are driven by our in-house Product Design & Innovation (PD&I) team, who are responsible for product development and testing as well as all the instructions and documentation you require for successful specification and installation.  Let’s take a closer look at how our PD&I department works:

Design & innovation

The Product Design & Innovation department is a crucial component within NYMAS Group’s day-to-day operations. Our multi-disciplined team offers a wide-ranging skillset and strong expertise in product design and engineering. They are focused on the production of high-quality outputs such as CAD (Computer Aided Design) data, customer facing drawings, manufacturing level drawings and product imagery.

Striving for more

Part of our commitment to innovation involves creating the conditions for that throughout NYMAS Group as a whole, by ensuring our vision is shared and continuously followed so that our brands can reach their full potential. We’re committed to continuously gaining knowledge and understanding around new and existing materials and processes. We set high standards among the team regarding the quality of both the products and the data we release as part of a thorough design process, and pride ourselves on our ability to blend aesthetics with genuine design integrity. 

Our process

The department adheres to an agreed process which guarantees a ‘Right First Time’ outcome and ensures that all products have been fully tested before release. Our New Product Development process is as follows:

  1. Project Planning & Scope
  2. Design Development (early stage)
  3. Supplier Engagement
  4. Design Development and Detailed Design
  5. Sampling & Testing
  6. Certification
  7. Documentation Creation 
  8. Implementation Planning

Following this process ensures that every project’s progress is extremely thorough, which helps us to avoid unexpected delays while also ensuring our products will perform consistently to the best of their ability when they’re out in the world.

Supplier engagement is vital during a project so that it runs smoothly – this dialogue is important to ensure the designed components are a success. All learnings gained from suppliers are then recorded to bolster our experience for the next project. We pride ourselves on working to good design principles and in turn, providing complete information that adds value for our customer.

Services we provide

We provide the following data for customers and specifiers:

  • Data Sheets
  • Marketing Drawings
  • CAD formats (2D DWG, 3D SAT)
  • High quality renders of products and packs
  • Installation, Operation & Maintenance Manuals
  • Digital Brochure

Looking for bespoke?

In addition to our established products collections, the NYMAS Group PD&I team welcomes the opportunity to work on bespoke projects. We can provide variations on existing products, such as different rail lengths; or combine the design language of multiple ranges to create something bespoke to your project.  Our robust design process ensures that we are also able to be agile when it comes to these ‘special’ design projects – so your vision could become a reality sooner than you think!
