Accessible solutions for today & tomorrow
Con-Serv has long been recognised as a leader in the healthcare industry assisting architects, designers, and specifiers in creating liveable bathroom spaces that address the evolving requirements of Australia’s ageing population.
In response to the industries growing need for flexible accessible solutions, Con-Serv has developed their Hideaway™ Mounting System that allows accessible fittings such as grab rails, to be installed, removed and re-installed as required. The Hideaway™ system is compatible with Con-Serv’s Hygienic Seal® and Linear grab rails, backrests and shower seats.
The Hideaway™ Mounting System comprises of Blank End Flanges that utilises the same wall mount plate used to install the grab rail. The installer simply removes the grab rail, leaving the wall mount plate in place, and covers the mounting plate with the blank end flange until it is needed again.
The Blank End Flanges are installed using a tamperproof hex key (supplied) and conceal the wall mount plate with an unobtrusive cover that is available in a range of finishes.
Quick and easy installation
Once a Hygienic Seal® or Linear grab rail has been installed and certified, an installer can easily remove and store the grab rail until it is required.
All Con-Serv Hygienic Seal® and Linear grab rails are manufactured to comply with the Australian standard, AS 1428.1:2021 Design for access and mobility. Grab Rails must be fitted to a solid wall or other firm surface and installed by a qualified tradesperson as per the guidelines outlined in the AS 1428.1:2021 Design for access and mobility.
NEW Backrest requirements for AS 1428.1:2021 Design for access and mobility
Con-Serv's Hideaway™ Mounting System is particularly relevant in complying with recent additions to the Australian Standards - Design for access and mobility AS 1428.1:2021 clause 12.2.4 Backrest appendix (g) which now requires backrests in Accessible Sole Occupancy Units be capable of being removed and refitted. Con-Serv Hygienic Seal® Backrests with the Hideaway™ Mounting System meet this requirement.
