Relocatable Bathroom Fixtures = Universal Design
This presentation is designed to provide architects a fundamental understanding of a newly emerging class of bathroom mounting systems that enable sinks and other fixtures to be quickly and easily “relocated” while remaining on the wall. In turn, this enables architects to more easily meet universal design objectives which are intended to ensure that facilities can satisfy the requirements of a wide range of disabled individuals.
- How emerging new fixture mounting technology can result in overall project savings within a smaller footprint than conventional technologies.
- Turning radii and room dimensions required to accommodate individuals in wheelchairs, mobile lifts, or related equipment.
- Back-wall structural requirements to meet the needs of conventional as well as bariatric patients.
- Safety and performance improvements and the resulting impact on physically challenged individuals and their caregivers.
