Disability accessible products from Enware Australia were chosen for installation at Julia Farr Housing Association (JFHA)’s latest project in Christies Beach, South Australia. Enware’s products were selected for both aesthetics and practicality.

A non-profit organisation specialising in the design and construction of accessible, affordable homes for people living with disability, JFHA aims to improve the quality of life for these people by providing access that assists them with everyday living.

Specialist tapware and bathroom products from Enware were specified to ensure the houses were fully accessible to people living with disabilities, and also because they were fully AS1428.1 compliant and had a sleek, modern and clean aesthetic.

Enware products chosen for the project included IFO basins and toilets, chrome handheld showers and Aquablend SQX basin and shower mixers with extended levers and handles. Mrs Megan Hayward, Project Manager - Property Development, Julia Farr Housing Association observes that the Enware products are excellent from design, functionality and maintenance perspectives, standing apart aesthetically from conventional bathroom products.

Enware Managing Director, Mr Adam Degnan, says the project was a great opportunity to showcase the diversity and versatility of their products that could all be combined to deliver greater accessibility and visual appeal.

IFO Basins and Toilets

Suitable for compact or large bathrooms, the stylish Scandinavian IFO wash basins exclusively distributed by Enware in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia are available in single and double bowl and special purpose models. The IFO range of bathroom products also includes WC options, toilets, urinals and baths, all architect-designed for healthcare, aged care, disability, commercial and domestic applications.

Chrome Handheld Showers

Key features of Enware’s chrome handheld showers include an extensive range of grab rail options; water efficient shower sets; and smooth chrome finish. They also come with a polished stainless steel heavy duty grab rail (1100mm x 700mm), which does not obstruct the passage of the hand in any way. These design factors are important for people living with disabilities that limit their movement or necessitate the need for additional support. The showers are suitable for commercial amenities, hospitals, hotels, sporting facilities and public areas.

Aquablend SQX Basin and Shower Mixers

Enware’s latest Aquablend SQX thermostatic mixer range features an extended, 100mm lever action to optimise safe and easy control of water flow in applications such as aged care, hospital, healthcare, disability and medical facility use. Recommended for people living with disability and with limited gripping capacity, Aquablend SQX mixers with 100mm handle are part of the Australian-made high quality ranges purpose designed for higher risk environments. The mixers offer superior scald protection, along with water and energy-saving features.
