Franke’s wonderfully accessible range of grab rails and paraplegic bathroom products are designed specifically for inclusive washroom facilities.

 

The range includes grab rails and a fold down shower seat which can be installed with our other washroom and sanitaryware products to complete the whole disabled bathroom design.

 

Franke Grab Rails

Convenient and well laid out bathrooms using grab rails are now common in washrooms for use in private homes as well as the public, clinical and care sectors. The Franke Grab Rail Range of 9 grab rail options have easy-to-grip satin surface finish together with a comfortable rail diameter of 32mm to help prevent slipping and make bath and shower time and the use of toilet facilities easier for everyone.

Franke’s range of TUV certified Grab Rails include Straight Rails in 4 sizes, recommended for a concealed cistern. In addition, there is a Paraplegic Rail, a Fold Down Paraplegic Rail, an Angle Bar Rail, a 90 Degree Angle Bar Rail, Cistern & Flush Valve Back Rail, and an Angle Bar Rail. All are manufactured from Grade 304 Stainless Steel, satin finish to prevent slipping, with a diameter 32mm and include screws and dowels.

The modern less-abled washroom design should consider several different factors to be the most user-friendly and compliant, these include aesthetics, durability, and the user’s specific needs. Franke has designed a range of products with all these considerations in mind to provide a complete and practical solution. You can plan your layout and installation according to our guidelines if you choose and adjust according to the requirements of the individual, dependent on the disability.

 

Franke Shower Seat

The Franke Fold Down seat is manufactured from grade 304 Stainless Steel. The white battens are made from polyethylene and have rounded corners. This high-quality seating solution for accessible bathrooms that need to cater for individuals with reduced mobility. The slatted shower seat is perfect for use in hospitals, medical facilities, and assisted living facilities. The seat is foldable so it can be neatly flipped up when not needed. A comfortable and durable product.

The Franke Commercial range of washroom products have incorporated the need for a more stylish inclusive design to include the older and less mobile population and have been produced with all ages and abilities in mind.
