Over recent years we have specialised in all areas of aids and adaptation work, ranging from external access ramps to the installation of shower room facilities and kitchens for people with mobility difficulties.

Over this period we have become recognised as a well organised & highly efficient installer of a wide range of equipment and services in this sector, carrying out work on behalf of housing associations and local authorities. We regularly install level access and walk in showers to assist with a range of mobility problems.

The type of arrangement pictured on the right is typical of the type of installation we carry out.

For an installation of this type we would expect to strip out the existing bathroom, install the new shower enclosure and electric shower, install new safety flooring, wall tiling works and associated electrical works within a 4 -5 day schedule.

We install high quality over bath thermostatic electric showers that give the user precise and regulated temperature selection. The design of the shower, controls and hose make it an ideal choice for people with special needs. An installation of this type including all wall tiling, electrical works and associated fittings would be completed within 2 days.

We install a range of grab rails for internal and external use and construct access ramps and carry out modifications to gardens areas in order to improve their access and use for people with mobility problems.We install disability kitchens, door entry systems, hard of hearing smoke alarms, gas detectors, corner protection products and door widening. We carry out external adaptations such as extending patios and improving access for wheelchair use, installation of mobility scooter stores, handrails, steps and disabled parking bays.

We have recently developed a unique building system that we use to provide various types of disabled use extensions to existing properties. We are able to provide wet area shower rooms, combined bedroom and level access shower room extensions, and dialysis rooms using this system. The unique nature of its construction means that we can provide a flexible, economical,sustainable, eco-friendly and rapid solution to many types of construction brief.

Much of our Aids & Adaptation work is carried out in association with Local Authorites, Care & Repair Agency's and Housing Associations. Bromford Group, with whom we have a long standing working relationship, and currently have a framework agreement contract to provide aids and adaptations to existing tenanted properties.
