AKW, one of the UK’s leading providers of accessibility solutions, has launched a new range of coloured tiles, backer boards and mosaic border tiles, for the ultimate in inclusive bathroom installations.
AKW’s new coloured, glazed ceramic tiles are a stylish addition to the company’s existing range of tiles and accessories. The 400 by 250 by 8mm sized tiles are digitally printed with a stone-effect and can be used as bathroom wall or splashback tiles. They are available in four colourways ranging from a matt finish grey to gloss finished cream, light grey and white. In addition, a range of mosaic border tiles has been launched to complement the existing tile range and allow for the creation of more decorative finishes in white tiled bathrooms. Available in marble, blue and grey colourways, AKW’s mosaic border tiles provide a glossy, elegant finish.
As part of the ‘AKW One’ service offering of having everything needed to do an inclusive bathroom installation under one roof, the company has also added tile backer boards to the tiling range. The boards are strong, waterproof and lightweight and ideal for any installer looking to apply tiles to a secure surface.Available in 6mm, 10mm and 12mm thicknesses to suit a range of installation requirements, they can be fixed onto either timber or metal studwork instead of plasterboard, creating a sturdy substrate panel.
Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW comments: “By adding coloured tiles, backer boards and mosaic tiles to our AKW One offering, we are making stylish, accessible bathroom purchasing and installation even more straightforward for specifiers and installers alike. It is now possible for customers to buy showers, trays, formers, screens, seats, grab rails and waste pumps, as well as brassware, sanitaryware, wall panels, bathroom furniture, timber, tiles and tiling accessories from us.”
