How to Make a Shower More Accessible

In light of the recent updates to the NCC 2022, it is now a requirement that at least one shower in a new dwelling must have a hobless and step-free entry as per the Livable Housing Design Standard. At Demtech, we are committed to helping you meet this new standard by offering pre-formed bases that are specifically designed for zero-threshold showers.

By incorporating a hobless shower into your bathroom design, you can eliminate the traditional raised entry and create a more accessible space without any barriers. This simple change can make a big difference for individuals with disabilities or mobility issues, allowing them to navigate the shower area safely and easily.

In addition to the Shower Base, we also recommend including other accessibility features in your bathroom design, such as Shower Seats. These small additions can greatly improve the functionality of your bathroom and make it more user-friendly for everyone.

Other accessibility requirements in the NCC 2022 include having a ground floor toilet with 1200 mm of clear space in front of it, additional timber in the wall frame to support future grab rail installations, and wider doorways with level thresholds for easy access.

As the NCC continues to prioritise accessibility in building design, it is crucial for builders and homeowners to stay informed about the latest changes. By working with suppliers like Demtech who understand the new requirements and offer compliant products, you can ensure that your bathroom design meets the standards for accessibility.
