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.

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.
