A new poll(*) maintains that 75% of people believe all new homes should be built to be accessible to all ages and abilities.
The poll follows recent surveys, which further identified that an accessible WC and shower were rated the most important accessibility features by 90% of respondents, and that a growing number of homes are multi-generational.
Closomat, Britain’s leading manufacturer of accessible toilet solutions, is enabling private and social housing providers to meet the requirement easily and cost-effectively. It has developed a combination of packages that facilitate provision of enabling toileting equipment from design to occupation- and beyond.
“We can take the hassle away,” explains Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “We have almost 60 years’ experience in adapting homes to enable people to undertake their intimate hygiene independently, for as long as possible. That experience is brought to bear in our project management and life maintenance offerings.”
The project management package provides design advice, supply, install, and commissioning across Closomat’s product offering, including shower toilets, toilet lifters, washbasins, shower seats, ceiling track hoists. It is fully Construction (Design & Management) compliant. Additionally, the new Palma Life package gives, through a singe up-front price, supply and commissioning of the top-selling shower toilet, the Closomat Palma Vita AND a decade’s service & maintenance(+).
