Closomat has developed a package which allows developers, from one source, to make a stylish cloakroom, wetroom or bathroom for the occupant to carry out their intimate care to supreme levels of cleanliness, without no help required.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, reflected on recent stats showing more than 3 million people aged 55+ are looking to downsize, yet only 7% actually do so.
“The biggest reason is lack of suitable property,” Robin said.
“Our experience in housing adaptations shows that as people’s health deteriorates, and they develop mobility and cognitive conditions, the bathroom is the most common room to be altered; changes to the toilet one of the most common alterations therein.”
A Closomat shower toilet has the appearance of a conventional WC and can be used like one as well. It also has integrated douching and drying, which can be selected when required, at the simple push of a button.
Closomat is the only wash & dry toilet supplier in Britain to manufacture in the country.
Its range encompasses contemporary wall-hung WCs to floor-standing automatic height adjustable variants, with its floor-mounted Palma Vita the biggest selling toilet of its type, thanks to its superior performance.
Robin added: “Installing assistive technology such as a Closomat at the outset can save that disruption and cost.
“It delivers a lifetime home, especially as our Palma Vita can be easily accessorised to accommodate growing frailty. And shower toilets are becoming more known about, and are perceived as an aspirational fixture.
“These features combine to give developers a great USP for their properties, to help sell to this already big, and growing, market sector.”
Closomat’s shower toilet range is accompanied by a contemporary range of fixed and height adjustable shower seats, washbasins, hoists, support systems and grab rails.
