New training van to help support installers and promote AKW product range

After five successful years providing installation support and product training across various sites, AKW is replacing its training van with a bigger and better version, filled with a range of the company’s products.

The provider of showering, daily living and kitchen solutions for people with mobility needs works with a range of clients, including the majority of local authorities, housing associations and national & regional contractors.

Products on the new van include the company’s iCare Bluetooth-enabled smart electric shower and the rest of the iShower range, the ArkaCool Touch Mixer Shower, a Tuff Formwet room former and waste pump and a variety of additional wastes and shower trays. The van also includes an ActivMotion rise and fall kitchen table, vanity unit with raised height pan and a TV display screen showing ‘how to’ videos and previous installations.

Driven by Paul Baird, an ex-installer and AKW surveyor and maintenance engineer who understands the challenges faced on site, the company chose to include products in the van based on the most frequent questions posed by installers to AKW’s Technical Team.

According to the company, these queries included how to set up or calibrate a pump, how to fit a tray on a timber floor and the installation of a screen on a tray area.

Paul Tingey, Director of Customer Support Services at AKW, commented: "The first van we had was so successful that it was out at builders and plumbers’ merchants, on job sites and with installers around 120 times last year alone. As well as providing face to face help with installation questions and product training, the AKW van also shows installers the wide range of adapted living products that are now available to them.”

The van is available for onsite visits UK-wide and has also travelled as far as Ireland and France for numerous visits in a single week.
