It is an age old question for anybody with a disability or even moderately reduced mobility, Why are all accessible bathrooms so boring and mundane? Is it so much to ask that a disabled bathroom space not look like a hospital wing? Can the wonders of contemporary design not come up with some innovative ways to marry practicality and style, in this environment? Of course they can. The problem is not that the designs do not exist, but that too many providers are focused on that one big word – disability. Instead of looking at accessibility renovation projects as a chance to design an entirely bespoke bathroom, they see it in terms of limits and restrictions. The good news is that you can have it both ways and we will listen and advise on any requirements you have, from DOC M Disabled Packs to bespoke bathrooms, the only limit is your imagination.

Our level access showers are achieved by dishing the floor to a drainage area, incorporating full vinyl sheeting to avoid slipping whilst bathing or generally using the bathroom.

This type of shower is suitable for wheelchair users as well as customers unsteady on their feet for a prolonged period.
