Wimpole Internal alterations

Ashco have been over in Wimpole working on internal alterations on a disabled clients bedroom and installing a level access shower.

The team first have to install a stud partition wall. These are used to support the openings in the room. A new door way opening is being placed between the bedroom and the bathroom. This will be wider than the existing one so has wheelchair access. A  new sliding door is also being installed.

New windows will be fitted in the bedroom and the new level access shower. These are UPVC double glazed windows.

Next the team started working on the level access shower in the bathroom. A new contour eco-dec shower former will be installed. Then a Mira advance electrical shower is to be fitted. This has special thermostatically control with separate flow and temperature settings. It also has large contrasting rotary lever and push buttons making it easy for our client to use. Two weighted curtains and a corner ceiling support curtain rail will be installed. The curtains have special anti-fungus and antibacterial protection.

A large long riser bar with easy glide operation will be fitted to the shower area.

Once the shower area has been sorted a Twyford “Sola” wash hand basin and a WC Twyford “Sola” rimless WC pan will be installed.

Our clients have chosen to tile full length of two walls around shower area and splash back around wash hand basin. The team have to plaster the walls to give a fantastic finish. Our clients have chosen ceramic glazed tiles in white.

The walls that are not tiled are to be decorated with dulux paint that is suitable for high humanity environment. This includes the ceilings too.

Last to be fitted is the flooring. Our clients have chosen Astro Pisces flood covering that is specifically designed for safety with wet, barefeet or soft soled footwear containing a bacteriostat to minimise the growth of micro-organisms such as MRSA.

In the bedroom new heaters and lights are fitted in the bedroom.

All these adjustments to our clients bedroom and level access shower will make a big difference to their lives giving them independence back with everyday needs. If you would like to read more articles please click here
