A recent survey has highlighted the growing need for accessible rented accommodation, and particularly homes with accessible bathrooms, say Closomat.
An accessible WC and shower were rated the most important accessibility features by 90% of respondents.
The findings affect both social and private rented sectors (half of respondents would like to move into the PRS, yet only 18% are currently in privately rented accommodation). Of the respondents, four out of five live in a home that does not fully meet their needs.
The bathroom accessibility can be met efficiently, using a project management service available from Closomat.
The leading provider of accessible bathroom solutions can survey, offer design advice, supply, install, commission and provide ongoing service & maintenance.
The service is available across Closomat’s product offering, including shower toilets, toilet lifters, washbasins, shower seats, ceiling track hoists. It is fully Construction (Design & Management) compliant.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, explained how the company can ‘take the pain away’.
“From experience, and another survey, one of the biggest headaches in adapting a home was rectifying poor workmanship,” he said.
“We have our own team of engineers and approved installers, specifically trained in our product range, so our customers know it will be a job well done.
“Our service & maintenance packages are unique in the sector and again help ease the pain, ensuring the equipment is looked after and, in the rare event there is a problem, ensuring timely rectification.”
