Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys was approached by the parents of a young boy with Duchennes muscular dystrophy, who wanted their son to access the benefits of education at the school, but appreciated the nature of his illness meant he may have difficulty using certain facilities including school toilets.
Clos-o-Mat solution included:
With more space, to enable student and carer to access equipment, both hygiene rooms have height adjustable washbasins, height adjustable changing benches, hoists and Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita automatic wash and dry toilets with touch-sensitive switch.
Facilities will meet the changing needs of the schools student with Duchenes but will also open the schools door for other disabled students who may wish to attend but may have previously thought the Grammar School inaccessible to them.
Under Department for Education Building Bulletin guidelines, hygiene rooms are good practice and should be included in all schools.
Clos-o-Mat is the UKs leading provider of hygiene rooms in educational establishments, utilising its experience gained in the supply and installation of these, and their public equivalent Changing Places toilets, to deliver an efficient, comprehensive one-stop shop.
Clos-o-Mat offer design advice plus supply, install, commission and provide ongoing service/maintenance, all backed up by in-house project management of a Changing Places toilet or hygiene room.
