A survey has revealed the benefits of providing wheelchair-accessible toilets with extra facilities in shopping venues.

A survey among campaigners for assisted toilets with an adult-sized changing bench and hoist showed that 99% of respondents would visit the retail centre with these facilities over one without, 94% would stay to eat if there were suitable facilities, 83% would spend more time in a retail environment with suitable toilets and 68% usually visit a retail environment with three or more people.

Marketing manager for Clos-o-Mat, Robin Tuffley added that if a retail venue was to cater for people in need of help to go to the toilet when away from home, then footfall, time and spend would all be increased at the venue.

With up to 14 million people in the UK being disabled and in need of a little extra space, and or equipment of a changing bench and/or hoist for intimate care, it is important to allow them the opportunity to visit and spend as much time as they would like at retail venues.

Clos-o-Mat, the UK’s leading provider of hoist-assested accessible toilets, provides the resource necessary for appropriate disabled changing toilets with its Changing Places and Space to Change facilities.

In addition, Clos-o-Mat offers, in-house, a full support service, encompassing site surveys, design advice, supply, installation, commissioning, staff training and subsequent service & maintenance. Full support data, including white papers, CAD blocks, video, technical specifications and typical layouts can be found on Clos-o-Mat’s website.
