The Pressalit PLUS bathroomware range from Enware Australia was recently
introduced to NSW Network members of the Association of Consultants in Access
Australia (ACAA) at a recent quarterly meeting in Sydney.
Enware’s latest Pressalit PLUS range includes a wall-fitted track
system, horizontally and vertically adjustable shower chairs, adjustable
support arms for toileting, electrically adjustable wash basin brackets, and
shower and bath grab rails. All these products combine flexibility,
accessibility and aesthetics to simplify the process of creating disability
The ACAA NSW Network members discussed designing buildings such as
hotels, motels, holiday accommodation and commercial buildings that not only
comply with the AS1428.1 (2009) Accessibility Standard, but also meet the
requirements for furniture and fittings within these buildings from a universal
access perspective to accommodate everyone.
Mr Sandor Franken, Technical Specification Specialist for Enware care
products attended the ACAA meeting to discuss the best ways to make buildings
universally accessible and user-friendly with Enware’s product range.
According to Mr Franken, access consultants have thought of everything
when it comes to building design and also take a whole-of-room perspective when
designing hotel rooms. Having a wall-mounted track system that has horizontally
and height adjustable features is a huge benefit as it allows individual
products to be removed from the rooms when not in use by people with
disabilities or the elderly with special needs. This is particularly relevant
to hotels and accommodation providers, who may have several different guests
using the same room in the same week.
Mr Franken observes businesses that have actively chosen to include all
people with disabilities by providing universal access get a competitive
advantage in the market by catering to all potential customers.
The Pressalit PLUS range comes from Enware’s longstanding partnership
with Danish company PressalitCare.
