Kirkintilloch High School has specified two of Clos-o-Mats Palma Vita wash/dry toilets, whilst the new Lairdsland Primary School has had a fully-equipped hygiene room installed featuring a Palma Vita toilet.
Capable of being used as conventional WCs, the Palma Vita has built-in douching and drying facilities.
Clos-o-Mat hygiene rooms are being increasingly included in school hygiene rooms in place of traditional WCs due to their ability to give independence and dignity to the user, and remove the reliance on a carer or support staff.
National statistics show that the number of disabled children has increased by 62% in the past 25 years, meaning 1 in 20 children under the age of 16 is disabled. 60% of these children are in mainstream schooling.
Ian Paton of SPIE, which oversees East Dunbartonshire Councils PPP schools: A key element of our work is to pull together everything that will make a child with certain needs comfortable when they start or move school.
We will always deliver best value, and best practice in provision of whatever works are deemed appropriate.
Gordon Currie, Director of Education & Childrens Services at East Dunbartonshire Council: We dont endorse one product over another, but in these cases, the Clos-o-Mat was judged to deliver the best value in meeting the immediate needs of pupils moving to the schools, and also the needs of students who may be attending in the future.
