Why every hotel should provide an accessible bathroom
Any style of accommodation can have barrier-free bathrooms thanks to Ponte Giulio
Many hotels still have bathrooms with lots of architectural barriers which can
be troublesome for those in need of easily accessible environments.
Toilets are particularly crucial from anaccessibility perspective, as standard
models are not of adequate height to ensure an easy and fast transfer from a
wheelchair. It isn't just toilet facilities that can prove issues for those
with mobility issues, as shower trays are also not always step-free, and washbasins
often fail to be high enough to allow an easy washing experience for a wheelchair
Now, thanks to Ponte Giulio, it is very easy to have an accessible
The Italian bathroom company offers inclusive
design solutions that help reduce barriers in a fast and cost-effective
way. The solutions are simple, yet effective, explains Marco Ragno, head of
Ponte Giulio in the UK.
"The simple solutions we supply cover everything from grab
rails in washbasins, toilet and shower areas, right through to the replacement
of shower trays with floor-level
ones to ensure a safe experience for everyone. What's more, we offer stylish
and appealing accessories that complement the grab rails, meaning our
clients don't have to compromise on aesthetics."
Naturally, every modification in a bathroom environment is always subject to
space and technical restrictions. This is why Ponte Giulio is proud to offer
wash basins and shower trays, which can be built to different shapes
and dimensions to fit any space.
The replacement of the bath tub with a step-free access tray, which may seem
expensive and time-consuming, can be carried out easily by avoiding work in
the plumbing system and by placing the custom made tray exactly where the tub
used to be.
For years, the team at Ponte Giulio has been working on their collection of
industrial products with passion and precision. The result is solutions that
are stylish, safe and accessible.
Ponte Giulio's offer for hotel and accommodation facilities is based on the
design" concept. This means the business offers solutions to make
a bathroom fully accessible while remaining visually pleasing and elegant, ensuring
a non-institutional look and a space that can be used by any person no matter
their physical condition.
Marco continues 'A guest that feels welcome in a hotel that offers an inclusive
approach, will not only provide positive feedback from an enhanced user experience,
but will also be happy to come back, safe in the knowledge their requirements
will be catered for.'
