Clos-o-Mat launches white paper for accessible washroom design

  • 20 Jan 2016

Clos-o-Mat has developed a new white paper to help architects and builders in the design and specification of domestic accessible toilets and washrooms.

Entitled Design Guidance & Considerations for a Domestic Accessible Toilet/Wetroom, the white paper emphasises the importance of allowing people to remain in their homes for as long as possible.

To do so, it provides information on the structural considerations to house personal care technology.

It offers additional advice on the role texture and colour can play in designs, as well as details on the amount of space needed for wheelchair users.

The white paper can be referred to by architects and builders when designing a bathroom: under the updated design criteria for lifetime homes, bathrooms should be accessible and able to accommodate any further provision, such as a ceiling hoist.

Ceiling hoists for accessible toilets

Britain is home to approximately 250,000 people who cannot move around their homes unassisted. Thus, Clos-o-Mat predicts that the role of ceiling hosts is set to grow in domestic environments.

By considering this at the design stage, the home can be adapted to suit the changing needs of its occupants as they grow older. Clos-o-Mat’s white paper aims to simplify this process for designers, architects and builders.

The company is also able to supply, install, commission and service the equipment. Its ceiling track (X/Y) hoists can carry over 30 stone; they have been designed to support the user as needed, whilst being simple for the carer to transfer.

The hoists compliment Clos-o-Mat’s range of accessible bathroom technology, which includes its wash/dry toilet, the Palma Vita
