Adjustable-Height Shampoo Bowl

Adjust-a-Sink by Accessible Systems is a shampoo bowl designed to provide a safer, more comfortable solution for hair care in facility salons. An easy-to-use foot pump allows the sink to be raised and lowered 12" to better accommodate a resident's physical limitations. The Adjust-a-Sink can be used with most wheelchairs, eliminating the need to transfer the resident from the wheelchair to the salon chair.

New features include a wider selection of bowl and laminate colors and smoother surfaces for cleanability. A 3-in-1 faucet combines the spray, faucet, and vacuum beaker into one fixture, along with new color-matched, durable powder-coated drain shrouds for a contemporary appearance.

Lees’ NeoFloor™ NeoNaturals Collection combines the resilient flooring desired in healthcare facilities with the warmth, underfoot comfort, acoustics, slip resistance, and ease of maintenance of carpeting.
