Adjustable height wash basins

Adjustable height wash basins

Adjustable height washbasins must be fitted with a flexible waste kit and flexible tap connectors. They can be adjusted through a range of heights suitable for most seated and standing users and some provide the option of moving the sink from side to side. They may have manual and/or power assisted adjustment. Flexible plumbing kits are available to allow for height adjustment or repositioning without structural re-plumbing.

Some of the washbasins have been designed to provide support for the arms so they can range in width and depth considerably from a standard size washbasin. This can allow a user to independently wash and carry out other personal care activities such as shaving or putting on makeup. It also provides space to rest the toiletries required making them available within easy reach. However, this means larger wall and floor space is required (for the associated circulation space to access); or the wash basin may need to be re-sited within the bathroom or larger adaptations carried out.
