The latest edition of the Department for Educations Building Bulletin 103 declares that a specialist hygiene room of 12 square metres must be included in all mainstream secondary schools.
The hygiene rooms must be built with enough space for assistants to change disabled pupil. It has also been made compulsory that a fixed or mobile hoist is fitted in the facility.
Clos-o-Mat has produced a CAD drawing for the new standard in order to simplify the design process for the hygiene rooms.
The CAD drawing can be accessed on Clos-o-Mats website.
The company has also developed additional hygiene room technical support data including white paper on accessible toilets, 2D and 3D CAD on individual pieces of equipment and a video demonstrating how items of kit work.
In addition to providing technical data, Clos-o-Mats team offer in-house support such as design advice and after-sales maintenance.
