What Are the Advantages of Koala Recessed Models?
Koala recessed models offer several advantages over other products. This is especially true if you’re trying to project as tidy and professional an image as possible to your clients. That’s because a recessed baby changing station sits flush with the surrounding wall, giving it an especially attractive appearance.
Occasionally, one of our customers will express concern about the installation process of a recessed station. If that’s a worry on your part, let us reassure you that mounting these units to your wall is simple and hassle-free. Here’s a breakdown of the essential steps. Please note that these are general guidelines. Please consult the literature that comes with your unit for specific directions.
- Gather the needed supplies to complete the job. These should include work gloves, a Phillips head screwdriver, a level, a carpenter’s pencil, a hand drill, a jigsaw with wood and/or masonry blades, measuring tape, and a stud finder. These tools and materials should suffice to complete the installation of Koala recessed models.
- Remove the changing station from its container and check it for any damage or missing parts.
- Decide where you will mount the unit, then measure the appropriate distance from the floor and mark the wall. Trace the outline, then begin cutting.
- You’ll cut through at least one of the interior studs in order to fit the unit into the wall. Secure the station to the sides of two of the remaining studs as indicated in the directions you receive. You may need to use a shim to ensure the product is level.
- Once the unit is in place, open and close it several times and inspect it to ensure correct function.
- Position the included Koala sign on the outside of the restroom door, fill the liner bed, and clean/sanitize the product before first use.
That’s about it. Your customers are all set to begin using your Koala recessed models. If you have any questions, contact Koala customer service or Allied for support. In the meantime, why not browse our site and see the great selection of products we offer?
