North Swindon’s Orbital Shopping Park has benefited from a multi-million pound investment to improve accessibly for its visitors. The project saw the installation of a new Changing Places hygiene facility, supplied and installed by Clos-o-Mat.

Changing Places is a disabled toilet solution that enables anyone who needs assistance when using the toilet to do so independently with optimum hygiene. 

Changing Places are designed much larger than conventional wheelchair-accessible toilets, featuring more equipment, including a height-adjustable washbasin, ceiling track X/Y hoist and wall-mounted, height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench. 

The facility was recommended to Broadgate Estates, which manages the Orbital Shopping Park owned by British Land, following a survey of the local community.

Kelvin Grimes, away from home toileting project manager for Clos-o-Mat, commented: “People who use facilities such as Changing Places tell us that without them, they simply can’t do things most of us take for granted, like a trip to the shops. 

The options, without a Changing Places or similar, are to lie a loved one on the floor of a public convenience to change them- with all the associated safety, sanitary considerations that go with that, go home, or not go out at all.”
