Product News: Ponte Giulio WC / Washroom Area Kit
Did you know that with the requirements of the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), there is now a legal requirement for businesses to provide inclusive washroom facilities for all?
The provision of accessible washrooms has definitely come a long way in the last few years and the major supermarkets and department stores seem to have met the brief but there are still many smaller businesses that have yet to take the DDA requirements on board.
Ponte Giulio have therefore created this kit solution that fits the bill and can easily be installed into a washroom, consisting of five straight Prestigio grab rails and one hinged rail, a cushioned back rest for added safety and a mirror assembly kit.
The washroom kit solution is ideal for restaurants, tea rooms, pubs, offices, shops, cafes, car sales showrooms etc., and the rails are available in a range of colour options. Coloured grab bars are particularly helpful for the visually impaired and those with dementia (red or blue). However, we have personally come across accessible washrooms that have been well equipped but are then used by the company for storage for high chairs or other such equipment and then there is an embarrassing few minutes which the staff have to clear the room to make it usable again, which is not really recommended!
The WC / Washroom Kit can also be used just as easily in your home, if you need the extra safety and support that is provided in this complete kit solution for yourself, friend / family member. The grab bars can also be purchased, without the mirror assembly kit and back support, if that is all that is required.
