HEWI will be present at the Access Abilities Expo in Dubai for the first time ever. The exhibition is dedicated to the topics of accessibility and rehabilitation and is directed at state institutions as well as private organisations. The Access Abilities Expo will take place from 9 to 11 February 2016. Apart from an exhibition area the exhibition also offers a comprehensive Knowledge Centre Programme in which HEWI is also participating.
Bernd Steltner, Trainer in the HEWI training centre, and Hedi Hidouri, HEWI Sales Director for the Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe will be presenting fundamental aspects of accessible design. They will explain what the minimum requirements for accessible building and living are and which criteria must be fulfilled so that a building, for example, is also suitable for wheelchair users. The talk will focus on the design of accesses, bathroom fitout and compromises in floorplan design.
