When it comes to bathroom refurbishment, there is a lot to take into account, especially if you are planning to retrofit a level-access shower. Old pipes have to be inspected and may need to be replaced. The pipes require sufficient ventilation and the drainage system for the shower must be selected and installed to suit the local conditions.
Sound insulation makes a major contribution towards the value stability of a building and the health of its residents, so it is vital to know which products and technologies will ensure effective insulation.
In the building drainage sector, it must be possible to seal all pipes/ceiling feed-throughs to prevent the spreading of fires via this route. Find out more about Dallmer fire insulating elements, standards and the special features of roof drains.
Barrier-free bathrooms must be accessible for those with motor impairment, sensory impairments and those with poor physical strength. Level-access showers are particularly convenient and easily accessible with a walker or wheelchair.
