A new ‘top tips’ guidance document has been launched by Clos-o-Mat, covering the provision of Changing Places and Space to Change accessible toilet facilities, to help specifiers and contractors deliver efficient installations in a timely fashion.
The two-page guide covers key points, ranging from provision of drainage, water, electricity, through to ensuring the structure is appropriately load-bearing.
Available through the downloads section of the Clos-o-Mat website, the guide also helps identify what equipment should be included and where it should be positioned. This is primarily for the Changing Places facility, which includes a ceiling track hoist and height-adjustable changing bench.
Kelvin Grimes, Clos-o-Mat away from home project manager, explains: “Organising installation of kit, for the contractor to get to site and be unable to proceed because of poor planning, wastes time, money and delays completion. That annoys everyone involved! Yet with a little thought, it could be easily avoided.”
Clos-o-Mat also provide white papers and additional technical support on the specification of away from home assistive accessible toilets- including Changing Places and Space to Change facilities.
