Freedom accessible kitchens have been designed with the requirements of the Building Regulations Approved Document-M (M4(3) Category 3, Wheelchair User Dwellings) in mind, and also considers the suggestions from the Wheelchair Housing Design Guide 2018.

Working alongside industry leader Adam Thomas, we have also reviewed design features above and beyond the requirements of these documents, that we believe offer unrivalled accessibility and functionality.

Displayed below are a few of the ways we can help your kitchens meet the requirements, whilst also being inclusive for all.

Worktops

Worktops

Adjustable height worktops are a vital element of an accessible kitchen. Freedom offers electric and manual rise and fall worktops, alongside adjustable fixed worktops on brackets. Our straight and right angle corner worktops are available in a range of lengths to suit every home.

Oven Height

Oven Height

We have oven housings to suit the requirements of  the Building Regulations (oven centre 800 – 900mm from the floor), whilst also offering a higher oven solution which can be more accessible for many users.

Pull Out Shelf

Pull Out Shelf

Our heat resistant pull-out shelf is integrated into each Freedom oven housing. It works well with hide and slide oven doors and meets the Building Regulation requirements, whilst offering great functionality to the user of the kitchen.

Reduced Depth Sink

Reduced Depth Sink

Regulations suggest a sink should be no more than 150mm deep with insulation to the underside.

Our Freedom sinks suit this requirement and is pre-installed with a heat resistant base.

Kitchen Storage

The Wheelchair Housing Design guide advises  accessible storage solutions to include internal pull out/down baskets, carousels and pull out larders.
