Accessible bathroom supplier has launched a range of super-white tiles and accessories to complement specialist 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.

The 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, said: “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.”
