With so many elements to consider when designing bathrooms to meet AS1428.1 – 2009, it is important that we specify the right fixtures and finishes so that users of the bathroom can operate independently and at ease. Products for accessible applications in the bathroom need to deliver optimum access and mobility to comply with Australian standards.
Our formal CPD presentation is intended to provide an in depth look at the requirements for AS1428.1 – 2009 Design for Access & Mobility in the commercial bathroom space, classifying the differences and requirements for Accessible, Sole Occupancy and Ambulant applications.
During this seminar we will discuss what products comply, (and why) as well as provide you with the knowledge to make informed design choices for your projects and clients, with the end user in mind.
We will also identify bathroom solutions and design considerations to meet the needs of our ageing population to assist and support movement within the bathroom, and recognise where the AS1428.1 accessible standards can play a role in guiding product selection and set out.
