New research is indicating the market for inclusive bathrooms and kitchens has grown by 20% in four years, and is now worth over £180million(*). It is a sector that will continue to grow, with increasing numbers of people with mobility issues.
Closomat, Britain’s brand leader in assistive toileting technology , is at the forefront of aesthetic solutions for private and social housing. It has already developed more contemporary styling for the biggest selling range of shower (wash and dry) toilets- Vita- and is now working on the next generation.
“Shower toilets are particularly singled out as a technology that adds value to the adapted living sector,” says Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “They offer a more practical, and increasingly, aesthetic solution, that enables the home to be ‘future proofed’. They can be used as a conventional WC. Either by choice or as the occupant becomes less mobile, the integrated douching and drying can be used. And, uniquely with the brand leader, the Palma Vita, the toilet itself can be fitted with accessories to evolve and accommodate user needs as they change with time. That flexibility adds value too.”
With the growing preference among housing providers for specify, supply and fit solutions, Closomat reiterates its unique support package. It can provide design advice that is fully compliant with all Regulations, supply, install, commission, and post installation service and maintenance. No other manufacturer in the sector can offer such a comprehensive service, in house.
Closomat’s Vita range encompasses floor mounted, wall hung and height adjustable variants. The shower toilets are complimented by contemporary fixed or height adjustable washbasins, shower seats, plus body driers, toilet lifters, ceiling track hoists, and adult sized height adjustable Changing benches. Thus, a comprehensive inclusive bathroom package can be supplied, fitted, commissioned and maintained from one source. In addition, Closomat has a raft of useful reference sources on its website www.clos-o-mat.com; these include CAD blocks, white papers, NBS technical specifications.
