Clos-o-Mat – the UK’s leading supplier of wheelchair-accessible toilets – has provided the new JD Weatherspoon pub in Formby with its own Changing Places facility.
Opened earlier this year, the Lifeboat now provides children and adults who require a carer’s help with their personal hygiene with an appropriate space and equipment to do so hygienically.
Much larger than a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet, Changing Places toilets feature a hoist, adult-sized adjustable changing bench and privacy screen as standard. The Changing Places is located adjacent to the pub’s other WC facilities and requires a secure RADAR key to enter.
A Changing Places toilet is deemed ‘desirable’ under Building Regulations Approved Document M 2015 and BS8300:2009 for all new build and refurbishment projects involving buildings to which numbers of the public have access. So far, over 850 Changing Places have been opened at venues across the UK.
