Closomat is providing more space, and/or equipment for visitors to a revitalised pub with the addition of a Changing Places assisted accessible toilet.
The Grade II listed Royal Victoria Pavilion in Ramsgate has been revitalised following a £4.5m investment by JD Wetherspoon.
The accessible toilet offers 12m2 more space than a conventional wheelchair accessible toilet, in addition to the usual fixtures and incorporating a ceiling track hoist, height adjustable adult-sized changing bench, privacy screen, and heigh adjustable washbasin.
Closomat’s Claire Haymes away from home specialist comments: “Without the space and facilities a Changing Place provides, potentially up to 14million people- and their carers- in the UK can’t find, or use- suitable toilets when away from home. They may need help to be lifted out of a wheelchair, they may need extra space for someone else to be in there and help them, they may need changing.
“JD Wetherspoon is the only major pub chain committed to providing the facilities in as many of its venues as possible.”
Under Building Regulations and British Standards, a Changing Places toilet is ‘desirable’ in buildings to which number of the public have access. Since their introduction a decade ago, 1000 have been opened across the UK.
