English term or phrase: moulded bathroom service units
Bonsoir,

Le paragraphe en question parle de l'évolution des besoins, des marché et donc de la redéfinition de la mission du designer. J'ai beaucoup de mal à me représenter ce que signifie cette expression dans la phrase suivante:

"The mass production of building or service components (such as pressed-out or moulded bathroom service units) has hardly approached the potentiel seen for it fifty years ago."

Dans un premier temps, peut-on parler d'"unités de service de salle de bains"? Ensuite, quelle est leur particularité? Sont-elles tout simplement "moulées"?
Des idées?
Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Explanation:
moulded ones are likely to be in resin, whereas I'd assume pressed-out ones would be in metal.

You know, those all-in-one, drop-in-and-connect-up bathroom (etc.) units that are supposed to solve all sealing and most cleaning problems (but probably don't!)
