Closomat helps bring accessibility to small spaces

Closomat, Britain’s leading provider of assisted accessible toileting, offers solutions to many obstacles when it comes to issues incorporating accessible toileting.

Life can be tough for those who need extra space and equipment to address their intimate care needs when away from home, but Closomat offers plenty of solutions to offer extra space and help where needed. However, many people often think they can’t incorporate these services into a building because they’ll require a lot of space and kit.

Closomat is working to encourage companies to install assisted accessible toilets, even if they aren’t quite to the full specification of British Standards because it’s better to have a slightly below-standard option than no option at all.

Already, Closomat has been able to help an array of public venues provide wheelchair accessible toilets with space, a hoist and adult-sized changing bench to provide extra space and independence for those who need it.

Kelvin Grimes, Closomat’s away from home project manager comments: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way- almost always […] We have undertaken so many successful projects, we have the expertise to know what will work. It’s why we worked with campaigners to develop solutions, to give venues an opportunity to be socially responsible and meet the need, even if they can’t provide a full specification Changing Places.”

Closomat’s Changing Places toilets include a wheelchair accessible toilet with 12m2, a ceiling track hoist, privacy screen and adult sized changing bench. 

Under BS8300:2018 and Building Regulations Approved Document M 2013, a Changing Places toilet should be provided in all buildings to which the public have access, in addition to other wheelchair accessible facilities. Document M also states that if space is limited in any location, then the minimum able/disabled WC provision should be a unisex wheelchair accessible toilet.

Closomat offers a complete package, from design advice through installation to subsequent service and maintenance – you can find all information and a raft of specification and support data on the Closomat website.
