Further details:

Within the framework of a larger project, Alape has developed an obstacle-free washplace solution which meets the requirements for people with disabilities. In collaboration with Dornbracht Schweiz AG, a solution was conceptualised which not only fulfils the special functional requirements in barrier-free bathrooms and care rooms but is also aesthetically pleasing. In the Senevita retirement centre in Gehren in Erlenbach (Zurich), two versions with different installation depths were installed: The version with the dimensions 800 x 400 mm fulfils the legal Swiss standard “SIA 500”, which is required by the Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects for obstacle-free buildings, whilst the version with the dimensions 800 x 525 mm is suitable for care rooms.
