AKW launches accessible bathroom tiling range with safety and accessibility in mind
Provider of accessibility solutions AKW has launched a range of white tiles and accessories for accessible bathroom installations, designed to be practical and safe.
Designed with both safety and practicality in mind, the AKW Tiling and Accessories Range is available in three sizes, with accompanying accessories including spacers, edging and trims, adhesive and grout.
The range has been designed to be accessible for users. Each tile has a bumpy surface which enables overhead lighting glare to be diffused and reduced for users. This glare reduction helps those with visual impairments and those living with dementia.
In addition, the white finish of the tiles enables maximum colour contrast to be achieved with flooring, grab rails, shower seats and painted wall areas, helping those with visual impairments navigate the space more easily.
The tile and accessories ranges will be available from October onwards and it is the first in a number of new product launches planned by AKW to make accessible bathroom purchasing and installation more straightforward.
Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW, said: “AKW wants to continue to offer installers, local authorities and housing associations more, by supplying a wider range of the elements needed to create a safe, long-lasting and cost-efficient bathroom adaptation.
“With this in mind, it has made perfect sense for AKW to extend its accessible bathroom product offering still further with this new tile and accessories range.”
AKW specialises in showering, daily living and kitchen solutions for people with mobility needs. Its clients include local authorities, housing associations and national and regional contractors.
