Closomat have produced and published a guide that offers advice to ensure the key aspects concerning a bathroom/wetroom and toilet, as occupier needs change, are considered.

‘Design Guidance & Considerations for a Domestic Accessible Toilet’ examines what can affect the functionality and practicality of a water closet and analyses the details as far as both new build and retrospective adaptation, in terms of legislation and ‘best practice’.

Closomat’s marketing manager, Robin Tuffley, talks about how bathroom can cause disabled people big problems and how this part of the home often sees adaptation.

He also takes about changing that are being made: “Guidelines have been updated too: for example, future installation of a hoist should be included in newbuild designs.

“A ground floor toilet should be provided. In existing buildings, changing a door from swinging to sliding can give valuable extra space inside to aid manoeuvrability.

“Then there are other considerations: will a particular shower chair fit over the toilet, is there the space for such an eventuality, what height is the toilet and can that be adjusted, what about using colour to help people with visual impairments, to cite just a few examples.”

Closomat’s white paper covers all the details required to guarantee a successful adaptation, which meets the user’s needs and achieves best value for the provider.

The white paper can be downloaded free of charge on the downloads section of Closomat’s website: www.clos-o-mat.com

The paper comes in a series of guidance documents produced by the company, designed for good specification of accessible toilet provision in every environment.
