Disabled Adaptations & Access Solutions
Accessible Bathrooms & Level Access Shower Installations
At GMS Adaptations, we have been carrying out accessible bathroom and shower room adaptations across the South East for nearly 2 decades, providing us with a wealth of experience from the very first stages of design through to implementation. We have excellent knowledge of the specialist products available on the market and can provide thorough and detailed advice about product selection and bathroom design tailored to the needs of each individual whilst priding ourselves on providing an excellent standard of workmanship during the installation phase of the project. We carry out several types of bathroom alterations ranging from level access shower conversions to the installation of specialist baths & wash & dry W.C’s, and the implementation of sanitary ware as outlined in Building Regulations Document “M.” All these facilities help enable our clients to maintain as much independence as possible or facilitate the needs of carers who assist in the use of such products.
Accessible Kitchens Installations
Kitchen adaptations play a very important role in enabling some individuals to remain comfortably in their own homes. Functionality is crucial, and as a result much deliberation and consultation is required at the design phase. With the vast experience of GMS Adaptations management, this holds no fears. Thorough advice and various options can be discussed with full consideration given to the individual’s needs. GMS Adaptations carry out full and remedial accessible kitchen installations depending on the circumstances of our clients. We can offer bespoke design, manufacturer, and the implementation of products such as electrically operated rise and fall units and other specialist equipment.
GMS Adaptations carries out the supply and installation of portable, semi-permanent and permanent access solution systems. The ability to enter and exit your home safely cannot be underestimated. We offer a range of solutions from modular ramping systems that are quick and easy to install to metal & timber decking platform ramps, or a more bespoke permanent non-slip concrete structure with up stands that can match the existing brickwork on the property. Bespoke concrete ramps can also be fitted with tubular hand rails tailored to suit individual needs. The handrail can be painted at the manufacturing stage or retrospectively to improve aesthetics if desired. There may also be a requirement, particularly with wheelchair/scooter users, to increase the width of external doorways and provide a level transition from external ramp systems to the inside of the property. Although dependant on individual site conditions, this can usually be achieved with timber, pvc, composite, or aluminium door systems.
Internal doorways can also usually be widened, improving general accessibility within the property, or facilitating the use of walking aids, or wheelchair. This can help improve turning space and improve the ability to enter various rooms within the property safely. There are many alteration options that may help with this, ranging from pocket/sliding door systems to the turning of existing doors, or structural alterations. All these options can be finished to match existing decoration within the property.
We also provide electric automation for doors, windows, curtains & blinds, as well as bespoke stair lift design and implementation as well as internal & external access lifts.
