The demands of an ageing population have resulted in products for older and less mobile people becoming incorporated into more mainstream design. KWC DVS Exos. and VariusCare range has tried to include the need for a more stylish inclusive design. With many design variants and benefits, the range of accessible basins has been produced with all ages and abilities in mind.
Changing tastes means visual aesthetics will become as important as technology and functionality. With this in mind, KWC DVS has produced accessible washbasins that have been designed with practicality and style in mind. The Exos. range considers the need for aesthetically pleasing designs that consist of various shapes and sizes to fulfil the needs of different users whilst maintaining a consistent design and style. The VariusCare range provides the flexibility to incorporate a colour stripe to match and style the washroom and as a visual aid to users.
The population of the UK is estimated to comprise around 66 million people; the proportion aged 65 and over reached 18% in mid-2016, according to the Office for National Statistics. Additionally, the Disabled Living Foundation estimates that there are over 10 million disabled people in Britain and two million people with sight problems in the UK. This highlights the potential demand for sanitaryware and washroom products which cater for all needs.
Exos. Miranit washbasins
Made of Miranit composite material with a gel-coat finish, this range consists of three accessible washbasins with integrated grab rails. Each basin has a seamlessly moulded bowl and is cleverly designed to prevent water from overflowing. The pore-free Gelcoat surface is hygienic and easy to clean, and the integrated waste covers, made of satin-finished stainless steel, complete the elegant look.
The integrated grab rails have been specifically designed with the user in mind with a large radius for efficient grip and support. Additionally, the basins have a broader tap landing and spacious edges, which can be used as a shelf.
The KWC DVS VariusCare basins can incorporate an optional sensory colour stripe to provide a durable, practical product which is wheelchair accessible and maintains a stylish appearance.
The VariusCare Miranit washbasin range has a modern, flat bowl, making it easy to wash your hands. Made from resin bonded mineral granite material, the basins are warm to touch, pore-free and easy to clean. The rounded edges, which are pleasant to touch, make it easy for the users to pull themselves up and find support on all sides.
If desired, a colour stripe can be seamlessly integrated into the edge, which provides visual orientation for the washbasin, taking the principle of using two senses into account. The colour variants include the following RAL colours: RAL 3000 (Red), RAL 2008 (Orange), RAL 6025 (Green) RAL 5024 (Blue).
