Enware Australia introduces the latest range of barrier-free, wall-mounted drinking fountains designed to provide ease of access for people with disabilities.
Featuring an elegant design with a contemporary sculpted appearance along with durable functionality thanks to the vandal-resistant construction, Enware’s stainless steel drinking fountains accommodate both wheelchair and pedestrian access, especially in high use areas such as shopping centres, restaurants, clubs, schools, transport terminals, tourism facilities and municipal and various general public areas.
Enware’s barrier-free drinking fountains project from the wall at convenient heights, allowing a wheelchair to be positioned beneath. An easily accessible front push button operation constructed from chrome-plated brass simplifies operation.
The fountains ease the difficulty of facilities that are either too high for some people to use, or cannot be accessed from a wheelchair. Being custom-designed for disability applications, they also assist architects, builders and facility managers to comply with community initiatives to improve the lifestyle and opportunities for people with some form of disability.
Enware Product Manager Tim Knowles explains that while toilets tailored to the needs of people with disability are in more widespread use, drinking fountains are less often considered, but every bit as important. The barrier-free drinking fountain range spans different heights, styles and chiller options to suit a diverse range of customer needs.
