New from Pressalit Care for 2016 is an ergonomically designed wash basin – the New Matrix Curve - that features a curved front edge and sloping sides. Just as much at home in a Changing Places facility as it would be in an educational, care or residential institution, the New Matrix Curve basin has all the features you would expect to make this perfectly suited to users with limited mobility.
The sleek and attractive basin incorporates softly shaped, wide, sloping side edges that enable users to lean in and rest their elbows comfortably for stability and support. The curved front edge means both standing and seated users can be close enough to the basin to operate the tap, while the shallow bowl provides ample room underneath for wheelchair users.
Furthermore, raised edges along the back and sides of the basin prevent water from spilling onto the floor – so stopping the bathroom floor from getting wet and slippery, and providing a safer work environment.
Where height adjustment is a requirement, such as in Changing Places washrooms, the New Matrix Curve can be fitted with either the Pressalit Care Select or Plus brackets for maximum flexibility.
“As with all our bathroom furniture, this washbasin has been designed to help people who really need it,” says Andrew Lowndes, UK Sales Manager for Pressalit Care. “All the elements of its design are borne out of a desire to create a product that not only makes life easier for those with limited mobility, but also puts a firm focus on aesthetics and practicality.”
The simple yet elegant design of the basin with its wide, soft shapes, makes the New Matrix Curve an attractive option when space and optimum ergonomic comfort are at a premium. It is particularly suitable for smaller bathrooms requiring optimal use of space and high levels of safety and design.
The New Matrix Curve wash basin has been rigorously tested and can withstand a maximum weight of 200kg (the weight limit is less when the basin is in motion on a bracket). Produced in a high quality ceramic, it provides the best conditions for easy and effective cleaning.
Pressalit Care has been designing bathrooms and kitchens for over forty years where practicality is a pre-requisite
