Grupa Armatura

More and more attention is paid to the aspects connected with everyday comfort of the handicapped. It concerns both the possibility of moving on streets, in community facilities as well as in private homes.

What is most frustrating for the handicapped is the matter of being helpless in contact with technical solutions being difficult to overcome. Apart from the problem of high steps, lack of lifts and approach roads, also the problem of bathrooms for handicapped leaves much to be desired. It concerns both the public and private bathrooms.

During arranging a bathroom for handicapped persons, the most important problem to be considered is the question of free moving around in the bathroom which obviously broadly concerns persons on wheel chairs. During the process of designing a house, the needs of the owner, a particular person are considered and therefore the whole equipment and furnishing should be chosen the way to provide maximum comfort. Therefore selection of bathroom equipment is important, as it helps to make normal use of each element of equipment from the wash basin through the shower. Also the kind of disability should be considered with regards to the level the wash basin or towel hook are placed. Fixing a touch free faucet makes also an excellent solution. Using it does not require troublesome turning off knobs or regulating with the handle for setting the water flow or temperature. For many handicapped persons turning the knobs may be difficult and sometimes physically impossible. That is why installation of touch free faucets working on sensors activated when the hands reach the faucet, is an excellent solution for persons having problems with operating standard faucets. Also the problem of water conservation is worth mentioning in these kinds of appliances.

Bathroom faucets friendly to the handicapped are still not standard equipment in Polish bathrooms. However, the stress being put presently on equalising the comfort of life of the handicapped makes the touch free faucets more popular. The Armatura Group has an excellent offer in this matter because it considers requirements of all groups of customers, including the handicapped.
