    @Wahreo seems to be the go to bathroom guy , but all input welcome :D

    I need to replace our bath panel. its a number of years old now. from the AS Accolade Suite .
    I have been led to believe that the AS Accolade and the IS Alto panels are the same.
    Does anyone know if this is true

    Honestly, I can't remember the last time I fitted an Ideal standard Bath. All I can remember is that finished floor to underside of the bath is 515mm bang on.

    I'm on my phone at the minute so linking to websites isn't that easy but there is a website called 'the blue book' which has the technical dimensions for all ideal standard and AS products.

    Just had a brief look on the Blue book website and I couldn't see any Armitage products on there. They used to have both IS and AS. I guess Armitage is more geared for the commercial sector these days so they have taken it off.

    Anyway, I believe the Alto uses the Ideal Standard Uniline Front Panel which is the generic IS Panel used for the most popular Suite ever Sold- IS Studio.

    They list the dimensions as 510mm from finished floor to bottom of bath rim which ties in with my earlier measurement of 515mm so the panel can actually be angled out.

    I suggest you measure the distance between your floor to underside of bath lip.

    The only concern you might have is whether or not the lip at the top of the panel will slot into your recess between the bath and timber support (if it even has a timber support)

    Worth looking at these pics:-

    Hang on, it's not the Shower Bath you have is it?

    Yes it does look a bit dodgy doesn't it :laugh:

    I'm not saying that you should necessarily buy it from them, just that the code number is right for both the Alto and Accolade Baths.
