Clos-o-Mat has supplied and installed a Changing Places toilet for Port Talbot Parkway station in Wales.
Network Rail has issued a multi-million pound regeneration of Port Talbot Parkway as part of its Wales Station Improvement Scheme. The station will benefit from the construction of a new information hub and bridge; its waiting room will be updated and new toilets with baby changing facilities and disabled access have been built.
The station’s disabled facilities now incorporate a Changing Places toilet, which has been erected on Platform 1 alongside the waiting room. Accessed via a RADAR key, the facility will be open seven days a week, and on Bank Holidays.
Accompanying the Palma Vita wash and dry toilet is a ceiling track hoist and a height adjustable changing bench, which has been designed to accommodate adults.
The new Changing Places equipment was supplied and installed by British provider, Clos-o-Mat.
Changing Places toilets have been developed for those who need the help of a carer to fulfill their personal hygiene needs. Offering more space than standard wheelchair accessible toilets, the facilities also provide equipment to assist those who may need changing.
Although it can be used as a conventional WC, Clos-o-Mat’s Palma Vita toilet incorporates wash and dry facilities to ensure cleanliness for those who may not be able to wipe themselves unassisted.
