Closomat has brought to market a new WC that means specifiers such as architects, occupational therapists and contractors, can deliver style and enablement.
This comes as a new report highlights how aesthetics are playing an increasing role in product specification for independent living.
The Closomat Asana delivers contemporary design in a wall-hung WC, combined with the proven hygiene benefits of shower toilet technology. Thus, an accessible WC that is aspirational can be achieved.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, commented: “Whether or not someone is receiving a grant to make changes to their home, or self-funding, there is no reason why they should not be able to create a space that is functional, addresses their changing requirements, and is smart.
“The report cites people’s desire for good design. It actually quotes one respondent who said they didn’t want visitors using the bathroom as it looked like it was for a disabled person and they did not want to look disabled.
“Bear in mind, the bathroom is the most common room to be adapted, and the toilet the most frequent fixture therein to be addressed: it makes sense to use the expertise of the market leader, that brings with it a reputation for quality and reliability, in design, product and service. It’s about peace of mind, for all involved, for as long as the adaptation is needed.
“Even if there isn’t a mobility limitation now, installing technology such as the Asana means the home is future-proofed should the occupants’ manual dexterity deteriorate.”
Closomat’s Asana sees modern WC styling meet ‘the ultimate’ in shower toilet technology. It can be used as a conventional WC or, with the push of a button, the douching and drying processes selected.
Closomat also supplies a raft of additional bathroom fixtures that allow people to continue to live independently, and more safely, with style, in their home.
The company offers a complete CDM compliant project management service, covering survey to install and commissioning.
Furthermore, once the assistive technology is installed, Closomat can offer ongoing service & maintenance as required.
