Mobility Wet Room Case Study | Leeds |West Yorkshire
Published: 7 January 2021
Ms Corbishley’s existing shower room consisted of a shower enclosure with a high step, basin and WC. Unfortunately the suite did not meet her mobility needs and as a result she hoped to install a level access solution that allowed her to safely and easily use the shower without having to step over the raised tray.
Ms Corbishley had only recently had her shower room renovated by a company who had unfortunately told her, due to waste pipe positioning, she couldn’t install a level access shower.
But upon her sister gathering further information on mobility wet rooms , she came across More Ability and got in contact to find out what would be available for her sisters shower room.
Booking a free design appointment online she arranged a visit with a designer to visit Ms Corbishley’s flat, view her shower room, provide advice on level access showers alongside providing a provisional quote dependant on sanitary ware choices.
Ms Corbishley was visited by More Ability Senior Designer Nigel, who along with assistance from her sister, discussed her shower requirements, wants and needs.
Using his mobility bathroom knowledge and expertise Nigel created a mobility wet room design that allowed Ms Corbishley to enjoy a shower without the worry and struggle of stepping over a shower tray. Nigel then invited Ms Corbishley and her sister to our Leeds Disabled Bathroom showroom to present a detailed CAD visual and assist them with picking any final fixtures and fittings.
Mobility Wet Room Installation:
A spacious mobility wet room and shower curtain was installed by multi-skilled fitter, Steve. Turning Ms Corbishley’s existing shower into a level access showering space a pumped waste was used which would help carry water away.
A fixed cushioned shower chair with built in arm rests was also installed allowing Ms Corbishley to rest her legs whilst using the shower and facilitated a stable experience.
To keep costs to a minimum accessible wall boards were installed in the shower area to match the grey tiling existing suite. Patterned anti-slip vinyl flooring was also installed to waterproof the floor, provide grip all the while adding a modern feel to the suite.
Accessible sanitary ware included the installation of a raised height WC which allowed Ms Corbishley to comfortably sit down and stand up when using the toilet without having to bend as low as a traditional toilet. As the current basin was still relatively new it was kept in the suite to help save on additional costs.
Ms Corbishley’s shower room was transformed into a spacious and accessible mobility wet room allowing her to shower both safely and comfortably.
What Ms Corbishley Said about More Ability:
Excellent service and very friendly staff. All work was completed to a very high standard. Thank you
