As part of a £31 million refurbishment project, Lochaber High School has gained a new hygiene room with the ability to accommodate pupils who need support.
Clos-o-Mat has supplied the equipment for the new hygiene room, which includes its Palma Vita automatic wash and dry toilet.
With built-in washing and drying, the Palma Vita eliminates the need for wiping with toilet paper, allowing pupils who may need help to experience greater privacy and independence.
Drop-down arms have been added to the unit, enabling pupils of any age to be properly supported when using it.
In addition to the drop-down arms, Clos-o-Mat offers a range of add-ons and accessories for the Palma Vita to create solutions for individual needs.
To assist pupils with their support needs further, the school has also added an adaptive kitchen, a lift between floors and a support base to its facilities.
