Approved Document M toilets fail to meet the needs of wheelchair users

  • 19 Apr 2017

Clos-o-Mat has published a new whitepaper outlining why Approved Document M type toilets are not meeting the needs of up to 14 million people.

‘Accessible Toilets, Washrooms & Bathrooms – The Provisions Beyond Building Regulations Approved Document M’ sets out the relevant British Standards and guidelines for guidance on bringing disabled toilets up to standard. It is available to download here.

Robin Tuffley, Clos-o-Mat marketing manager, explains: “There is an assumption that a Document M type wheelchair accessible toilet ‘does the job’. But for up to 14million people, who need more space, and/or more equipment, it doesn’t. 

By not accommodating their needs, you are shutting the door on 20% of the UK population, who spend £86billion a year at least.”

The whitepaper encourages venues to consider Clos-o-Mat’s Changes Places and Space to Change hygiene rooms – which comprise a minimum 7.5m2 space that includes an adult-sized changing bench and hoist.

The Clos-o-Mat website also offers papers specific to its various accessible washrooms, in addition to technical support material including CAD blocks, NBS specifications, dimensions sheets and installation data.
