Situated on the Snugborough trading estate, Isle of Man, The DLP Production team have been manufacturing Shower Screens, Shower Trays and Fully adapted bespoke Kitchens that have been designed, developed and manufactured onsite for over 25 years.
These three product ranges all carry features to promote independent living for people who are less able, thus allowing them the dignity to stay living independently at home for longer:
- Care Screens : These are designed to allow a carer to assist an individual bathe, thus maintaining independence and dignity through living in their own home, rather than being cared for. We manufacture circa 25k units of care giver screens on site annually. This production ranges over 300 standard stocked units. We also offer a bespoke made to measure service where the property cannot avail of a standard stocked unit.
- Shower Trays: These trays are also designed to allow less able people to stay in their home independently. We manufacture circa 8k units with the key features being that the trays are stronger than a domestic tray to allow point loads of a wheelchair while accessing the tray or a shower seat deployed to assist the bather. They also have level access or low level access, all key features for a care shower and can accept one of our digitally controlled pumps to remove waste water when gravity cannot.
- Kitchens: The kitchens we make are all bespoke made to measure products. They aim to allow an able bodied and less able bodied persons to work well together in an adapted kitchen. To achieve this all kitchens are designed from a detailed survey of the property with a full understanding of the owners needs.
These products are sold by our sister companies under the “ AKW” brand in the UK, Europe and the USA.
