Tilgate Park has had a hoist-assisted toilet installed by Clos-o-Mat and opened by Crawley Borough Council. The toilet is believed to be the first of its kind at a leisure attraction in the area.
The venue already welcomes over one million visitors a year, by opening the first Space to Change wheelchair-accessible toilet with changing bench and hoist, the park will now be accessible to even more visitors.
The Space to Change enhances a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet by incorporating an additional adult-sized changing bench and hoist, supplied and installed by Clos-o-Mat.
Samantha Buck, local campaigner for hoist-assisted toilet facilities explained: “A hoist takes up no space, but makes such a difference to families like mine. It means we can go out and about, spend time- and money- at a venue, and relax knowing we can all access suitable toilet facilities.”
A Space to Change toilet takes a standard ‘Document M’ wheelchair accessible toilet, adds more space to it (if required) to achieve a minimum 7.5m2, and an adult-sized changing bench and hoist. Under British Standards, Changing Places are in addition to that standard wheelchair-accessible toilet, at least 12m2 (2m x 4m), and include a ceiling track hoist and height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench.
Clos-o-Mat has developed its website to be the leading reference point for inclusive intimate care provision in and out of the home, with support material for campaigners, specifiers and installers available for free download.
