Accessibility Bathrooms & Washrooms

‘Drag and drop’ changing places


Specification of accessible toilets is now available with just a mouse click through innovations at Clos-o-Mat.

The company, the UK”s leading provider of disabled toileting solutions, has added a full Changing Places accessible toilet CAD download to its website www.clos-o-mat.com.

As a result, specifiers wanting to include the state-of-the-art toilet facility can simply ‘drag and drop’ the complete drawing and specification criteria into their plans.

Clos-o-Mat has further designed the download so that each item within the layout can be individually moved around the space to suit specific project requirements.

The Changing Places download compliments those already available on Clos-o-Mat’s website, for its Palma Vita and Lima Lift shower toilets. “Specifiers now have a ‘one stop shop’ for CAD details for disabled toilet facilities in and out of the home,” says Robin Tuffley, Clos-o-Mat marketing manager. “The CAD downloads are complimented by a number of relevant white papers, which further give specifiers a quick and easy reference to all appropriate guidelines affecting provision of accessible toilets in public environments, and which are also available for download.”

Changing Places toilets are ‘bigger and better’ than conventional (Document M type) accessible toilets, being a minimum 12m2, and including additional equipment of (as a minimum) a hoist, height adjustable adult sized changing bench and privacy screen.

The 2013 Building Regulations Approved Document M now state incorporation of a hygiene room or Changing Places facility is desirable in buildings to which the public have access. The new Regulations build on good practice guidelines already laid down in BS8300:2009, BB102, Statutory Instrument no 2, BS6465-4 Code of Practice for public toilets, and accessible train station design code of practice.

Clos-o-Mat has a 50+ years-long proven track record on the supply and installation of fully accessible toilets, and hygiene rooms, including a substantial number of Changing Places facilities. Its ability to deliver design advice, supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance across the ambit of accessible toileting equipment, including the Clos-o-Mat shower toilet, means it is uniquely positioned to simplify the whole process for forward-thinking environments to which the public have access.
