Simply Build It

If you are a quailified registered electrician or have notifed your local building controls of the work you intend to carry out you can, providing it complies with regulation related to bathrooms in BS7671:2008, that means it is outside the zones that this accessory is not permitted to be installed.

Hi Andy,

your extractor fan will also need to comply to regulations, remember it is notifiable work, if you are not employing part p registered installer.
