The challenge

Hot ashes removalThe elderly client is not steady on her feet when bending and she was worried about removing the ashes from her coal fire.

The solution was to design and make a small frame that she could clip to her ashes tray with extra welded-on brackets. The twelve inch height of the frame was limited by her ability to subsequently tip the ashes into her dustbin. The frame was made from lightweight aluminium tube and covered with a tape to provide cool and easy to grip handholds.

The client now feels much happier, since it gives her more confidence in lifting the hot ashes safely and without spillage onto her carpet.
