EUROCARE SHOWERS - New Door Upgrade Helps Eurocare Rise Above The Competition

A new technical upgrade from accessible showering manufacturer, Eurocare Showers, will now provide customers with an even more superior product.

The redevelopment of Eurocare's rise and fall hinge has resulted in a product that delivers not only on performance, but also on aesthetics.

The hinge was redeveloped following ongoing consultation with Eurocare customers, and designed specifically with appearance in mind. Concealed within a smooth, modern exterior, the hinge has no hazardous catches or operating devices, and remains flush when in the closed position.

According to Eurocare development & technical support manager, Jim Coupe, one of the key selling points of the new hinge is that it allows the doors to remain open, without swinging back into the tray or showering area:

"The new hinge operates on a 180 degree swing and allows the doors to remain open in 90 degrees in each direction," he says. "Inward swinging doors are a commonly reported problem in our market, which is less than ideal when you are trying to achieve a user friendly, accessible environment for elderly or disabled users."

The other side to the hinge is its appeal to installers as well as users: "The hinge has been designed to be screwed directly into the tray, providing a more secure fit," says Jim. "This also allows the doors to be installed quicker and more easily."

Ensuring a good seal between a tray and door is notoriously important. The new door upgrade also includes an advanced seal, positioned on the base of the doors which, when in contact with the tray, self modifies to direct water away much more effectively thus creating an improved seal.

The hinge also features a new double vertical seal for additional waterproofing and small drainage holes at the base, which ensure any excess water flows back into the tray or showering area.

Every Eurocare door is made to measure to customers' exact specifications and can cater for virtually any application. All doors are manufactured to the same high standards that set Eurocare apart.
