Buyer’s guide to stylish and accessible taps and shower systems

Integrating accessibility into a bathroom need not mean sacrificing style. With bathstore’s stunning range of accessible taps and shower systems, you can ensure that your bathroom is suitable for use by small children, elderly relatives, and those with disabilities, while still creating your dream space.

Extended lever taps can be controlled with minimal force and without reaching, while a thermostatic mixer reassures you that the water temperature will remain constant. The Tact electric shower has a stylish, contemporary design that is also approved by the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) and BEAB (Royal National Institute of Blind People).

Make it easy to get to grip with taps and mixers

A tap might look beautiful but be really trying for people with arthritis or who don’t have full dexterity in their wrists and fingers. The bathstore Easy Bathing range addresses this. As well as being easy on the eye, it includes taps and mixers that feature various extended comfort handle options, ingeniously designed to increase usability for the whole family, including those who may have limited mobility.

  • Metro Comfort Handles

The Metro Comfort range has been designed specifically to enhance usability for those who may find modern taps fiddly or difficult to use. Crafted from Virgin Brass then chrome-dipped for a sparkling finish, this range of taps is as aesthetically pleasing as they are easy to use.

Mix and match among the Metro Basin Mono Mixer, the Metro Bath Filler or the Metro Wash Bowl Mixer Fixed Spout designs for an accessible bathroom finish that is simple, sleek and contemporary.

  • Metro Comfort Thermostatic Bath and Shower Mixers

The Metro Comfort thermostatic bath and shower mixer tap has a sleek and contemporary design, combined with easy-to-operate extended comfort lever handle for ease of use with restricted mobility.

The thermostatic mixer ensures a steady pre-set temperature, even when other taps in the house are used at the same time. The wall-mounted mixer tap is suitable for high-pressure systems and lets you maximise space for bathroom essentials, while the deck-mounted version can be used with medium or high-pressure systems and has the added advantage of being easy to reach.

The brass body with chrome plating not only looks fantastic, but it will never rust. Add in limescale resistance and you have a mixer tap that will look great and function to perfection for years to come.

  • Thermostatic Touch Safe Mixers

Thermostatic Touch Safe mixers are ideal for homes with young children, or anyone who wants the peace of mind that comes with complete temperature control. Available from bathstore in both the Metro and Blade ranges, Touch Safe mixers regulate the temperature of the water while also keeping all valves and outer surfaces cool to the touch, leaving you assured that even the most inquisitive little fingers will not get scalded.

Complete convenience with the Tact Electric Shower

The Tact electric shower has a modern design that has been tailored to meet the unique needs of those with disabilities. The raised, tactile control buttons have been approved by the RNIB, while the illuminated temperature and flow indicator has an anti-glare finish and strong contrast for those with limited vision.

The optional Bluetooth wireless remote also features tactile + and – symbols for impaired vision. A simple push-button mechanism moves the shower head to where you need it, while the shower head itself features an easy-grip collar and longer hose length for assisted showering.

With an integrated iPhone app offering external control, the Tact electric shower increases independence and privacy when showering while enabling any user or carer to maintain control of the shower externally.
Running the water in a basin, bath, or shower shouldn’t be difficult for anyone. With the comfort handles and thermostatic mixers of the bathstore Easy Bathing range, it doesn’t have to be.
