The Onyx care pod is a future-proofed showering and toileting solution, that can be just as easily removed as it is installed.
The launch of the AKW Onyx Care Pod in 2020 answered the need for a standalone cubicle, that enabled safe showering and toileting to be achieved more quickly than a traditional wet room or level access solution. With the current demands in the industry for contractors and DFG funding, it is also the ideal option for those looking to clear adaptation backlogs, for hospital discharge and palliative care cases or as a future-proof solution for housing stock.
Designed with both style and functionality in mind, the Onyx Care Pod can be installed within two to three days, making it up to 60% faster to fit than traditional wet room solutions. As well as a stylish standalone showering cubicle, the range includes a Showerloo option that is ideal for those with additional toileting requirements. Extremely competitive pricing makes DFG a realistic funding option – even though high-end products are used throughout the pod. Also, the lifetime guarantee that comes with the Onyx Care Pod enables budget holders to approve installation with confidence.
The cubicle is watertight, and the wall panels are structural, allowing for the fitting of shower seats and grab rails at any time, as required. As well as offering a high level of slip resistance, the shallow 26mm textured shower tray can be fully recessed if needed for wheelchair users or used with an AKW ramp. Accessories can also be tailored to suit end user needs, including the addition of high LRV colour contrast grab rails, specifically positioned shower controls and different height shower screens.
