World-leading manufacturer and designer Pressalit has introduced the MATRIX washbasin bracket with a choice of integrated basin styles, the MATRIX MEDIUM, or MATRIX ANGLE DEEP, featuring a new, simple to use, discreet adjustment for both height and sideways movement.
The MATRIX washbasin makes the best use of space in the bathroom while accommodating the changing needs of both users and caregivers. Supporting self-reliance, space optimisation, and a sense of security in the bathroom, the new adjustable washbasin has been designed for use in a wide variety of installations, from a private home, care setting, institution, or hospital.
Whether for a seated or standing user, or when a carer is assisting, the new MATRIX washbasin offers a flexible solution and safe working environment. The easy-to-move washbasin can be adjusted smoothly sideways to a range of 500mm to create greater access when using the shower or toilet for a wheelchair user and carer, by means of a discreet handle located underneath the basin. Adjustment can be carried out safely with one hand and requires very little hand strength to operate.
The vertical rise and fall allows for a variation of 300mm, with options available for either a manual handle or intuitive electric power button. The latter is recommended for a care or hospital setting where frequent adjustment is required, offering huge time saving benefits and improved working conditions for staff, whilst the manual solution is suitable for a bathroom where there’s only one user, or multiple users with the same needs.
With both hygiene and aesthetics in mind, the discreet MATRIX bracket’s operating panel fits tightly against the wall and snugly against the washbasin, preventing dust and dirt from settling in hard-to-reach places. All surfaces are large, smooth and easy to wipe.
Andrew Lowndes, sales director for Pressalit in the UK, said: “Some people need a lot of help in the bathroom, others little or none. The new MATRIX basin bracket is a flexible solution, taking into account the specific needs of the user at any given time. By simple adjustment for height, or to create space sideways for greater access to the shower or toilet for wheelchairs, this helps create situations that boost self-reliance and help provide a greater degree of freedom.”
