The child-friendly washing area in the kindergarten
Products for children must meet a variety of requirements: they must be safe to use, robust and also literally child's play. Furthermore, they must be easy to clean and hygienic. In this article, we introduce you to the child-friendly washing area in the kindergarten.
Washing hands and brushing teeth is much more fun when the bathroom design in kindergartens is adapted to the needs of the little users. HEWI offers a comprehensive range of sanitaryware with cheerful colours that virtually invite you to wash and splash.
New design options in the kindergarten bathroom
In addition to the single and double washbasins, two new models with three and four places have been added to the child-friendly sanitary family with the row washbasins. The built-in height and depth gradation adapts optimally to the children's anatomy. Children of different sizes can easily clean their hands or brush their teeth.
Rounded edges support good accessibility of the fittings. The highlight: an integrated baffle disc invites playful exploration of the element of water.
The washbasins are ideal for use in kindergartens and primary schools because dirt - even from finger paints or acrylic paints - can be removed without leaving any residue.
By the way: a colourful washbasin in the kindergarten is not only more fun to play with. The child-friendly design also promotes learning.
HEWI mirror: safe solution at the child-friendly wash place
Available in two sizes, the mirrors can be ideally combined with the washbasins. There is a coloured border at the top and bottom of the mirrors. The high-contrast design enables better perception and sets colourful accents in the kindergarten bathroom.
The mirrors made of toughened safety glass have a shatter-proof film and an anti-unhooking device. In case of a broken mirror, the splinters stick to the foil and do not spread uncontrollably in the room. The unhooking safety catch prevents the mirror from being accidentally unhooked by the children.
The child-friendly washbasin: can be extended as required
It is not only the choice of washbasins that offers design options. The practical toothbrush tumbler rail can be extended by four places at a time with a supplementary module. Optionally, it is also available as a shelf with hooks. The holders are available in pure white, apple green and aqua blue.
