AKW launches its new anti-slip vinyl flooring range

January 2019

AKW, one of the UK’s leading providers of accessibility solutions, continues to build its one stop shop offering for bathroom adaptation installers with the launch of a new anti-slip vinyl flooring range. Available from February, installers will be able to choose from six colours and the design of this durable safety flooring has been developed considering risk of falls factors such as slip resistance, visual contrast and texture.

Suitable for wet rooms as well as other bathroom adaptations - due to its high barefoot and footwear slip resistance - the flooring range conforms to both HSE and International standards. In fact its PTV (Pendulum Test Value) exceeds wet room requirement standards, providing complete peace of mind for end users.

The six colours options have been chosen based on their popularity within the bathroom adaptation market. However, as a care provider, the flooring design does not contain any large speckles, as these can be interpreted as pieces of dirt by those with dementia, resulting in the bathroom user attempting to pick them up and increasing the risk of fall.

AKW’s new flooring range is two metres wide and can be cut to order in incremental lengths of half a metre. Alongside this cut to order service, AKW is also offering installers a range of other products for fitting the flooring on screeded, concrete and wooden floors. These include levelling compound, latex liquid, flooring and contact adhesive and floor colour matching weld rods.

Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW comments: “The new anti-slip flooring range is another addition to the one-stop-shop of products that we are launching to make installers’ lives easier. The addition of our new anti-slip flooring range to our tiling and timber offerings means that installers can come to AKW for even more of the components needed for a bathroom adaptation, saving time and reducing the risk of delay for an installation.”

AKW launches accessible bathroom tiling range

AKW launches accessible bathroom tiling range

AKW, one of the UK’s leading providers of accessibility solutions, has launched its complementary range of super-white tiles and accessories for accessible bathroom installations. Designed with both safety and practicality in mind, the AKW Tiling and Accessories Range is available in three sizes, with accompanying accessories including spacers, edging and trims, adhesive and grout.

AKW Tiling and Accessories Range has been designed with accessibility in mind. The surface of each tile is bumpy, enabling overhead lighting glare to be diffused and significantly reduced for users. This glare reduction is not only beneficial to those with visual impairments, but to those living with dementia. In addition, the super-white finish of the tiles enables maximum colour contrast to be achieved with flooring, grab rails, shower seats and painted wall areas, helping those with visual impairments navigate the space more easily.

The tile and accessories ranges will be available from October onwards and it is the first in a number of new product launches planned to make accessible bathroom purchasing and installation even more straightforward.

Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW comments: “AKW wants to continue to offer installers, local authorities and housing associations more, by supplying a wider range of the elements needed to create a safe, long-lasting and cost-efficient bathroom adaptation. With this in mind, it has made perfect sense for AKW to extend its accessible bathroom product offering still further with this new tile and accessories range.”
