Disability Taps

Disability Taps

Disabled taps are designed for elderly and disabled people or for users with reduced mobility. Disability taps are also addressed to those who suffer from arthritis, ensuring comfort and independence while using.

Faucets for the disabled are different from those intended for standard shower cubicles. For a person with mobility limitations, the necessity to regulate the temperature properly might be a big challenge. The thermostatic shower faucet available on the market eliminates the problem. The thermostat installed in the battery ensures a constant water temperature. It will not change even when the inlet water pressure changes. This solution guarantees effective protection against accidental burns. An additional advantage is its economy. Thermostatic taps are able to reduce water consumption by up to 40%. They go well with sliding chrome showers, creating a complementary set. Elbow washbasin and shower taps with an elongated mixer lever enable easier use by people with hand dysfunctions. Valves for the disabled should also have appropriate facilities, predisposing them to easy operation.

As in the case of bathroom equipment, the sink in the kitchen should be equipped with appropriate long lever taps to facilitate the life of disabled people.
