Package deal helps enable tenants and spare the headache of maintenance management

Landlords with long-term tenants with a disability can take advantage of an innovative package that can contribute- or cover- the cost of adaptative work, and spare the administrative headache of any future servicing or maintenance.


Palma Life from Closomat wraps up in one offering the purchase and commissioning of a Palma Vita wash & dry (smart) toilet plus ongoing annual service & maintenance for up to a decade.

Nor need it cost the landlord anything: if the tenant will be in residence for five years or more after the adaptation is completed, the Palma Life package can potentially be covered by the Disabled Facilities Grant (subject to terms, conditions, previous claims etc*).

Observes Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “If you’re a landlord- social or private- keeping on top of maintenance, servicing etc can be a major headache. Palma Life is designed to be the painkiller: we handle all elements of the routine servicing; under the package, the tenant can contact us direct in the rare event they have a problem with the toilet’s functionality. The cost and time of your staff administration is virtually eliminated.

“Going to the loo is something we all do, and not surprisingly, the bathroom- and the WC in particular- are the most common aspects that are adapted. Thus any tools which help in that area have a bigger impact than imagined.”

Complimenting the Palma Life package, Closomat offers comprehensive customer support, including design advice to ensure compliance with all relevant Regulations and guidelines, and site survey. The CDM compliant customer support package covers not just the Palma Vita smart (wash & dry) toilet, but the company’s range of wash & dry toilets, toilet lifters, ceiling track hoists, height-adjustable washbasins and changing beds which all contribute towards achieving an accessible home.

Closomat was the first company to introduce shower toilets into the UK, almost 60 years ago. It has built a reputation for product quality and reliability, now having sold in excess of 60,000 toilets, and has WCs still in daily use 30 years after first being installed. Its Palma Vita shower toilet- the only toilet of its kind developed specifically for people with limitations- is now the brand leader.

Uniquely, Closomat is the only wash & dry toilet company based in Britain, with British manufacture and full customer support before, during and after sales. Its uniqueness extends further: it is the only company in the sector to have its own, dedicated, nationwide team of service engineers.
