How Our Disabled Accessible Toilets & Showers Meet Accessibility Needs

Access to toilets and showers is a basic need, yet for many people living with disabilities, it’s a challenge.

Standard facilities often don’t meet their needs due to physical barriers and lack of suitable features. Our disabled accessible toilets and showers aim to solve this problem by offering features that ensure safety, dignity, compliance, and ease of use for everyone.


Identifying the Problems

Lack of Accessibility

Traditional sanitation facilities often overlook mobility challenges, excluding those who need accessible options. This gap in design leads to significant barriers, preventing full participation in activities for individuals with disabilities.

Safety Concerns

Without proper support structures, standard toilets and showers pose a high risk of slips and falls for individuals with disabilities. Ensuring these facilities have adequate safety features is crucial to prevent accidents and promote a secure environment.

Compliance with Regulations

Meeting regulatory standards is crucial for ensuring that all facilities are fully accessible. Many existing setups fall short, overlooking the essential needs and rights of individuals with disabilities. Addressing these gaps not only avoids legal issues but importantly, it marks progress toward truly inclusive and equitable access for everyone.


Solutions Offered by Our Disabled Accessible Toilets & Showers

Enhanced Accessibility

Our disabled accessible toilets & showers are designed with features that prioritise accessibility, such as:

  • Ramps for easy entry, accommodating various mobility devices.
  • Wide doorways to allow for mobility aid and easier access.
  • Ample interior space for comfortable manoeuvrability and space for carer assistance if needed.

These features collectively ensure seamless and inclusive access, effectively addressing common barriers to entry found in standard facilities.

Improved Safety

Safety is paramount in our designs, which is why our accessibility products all contain:

  • Anti-slip flooring to significantly reduce the risk of falls.
  • Sturdy handrails provide added stability and support.

These features create a secure environment, minimising accident risks and boosting user confidence in using the facilities.

Functional Design

The design of our toilets and showers facilitates usage without the need for assistance.. This autonomy is achieved through thoughtful placement of controls and fixtures, ensuring they are within reach and operable with minimal effort, thereby respecting the dignity and self-reliance of every user.

AS1428 Compliance and Beyond

Our sanitary products are designed to comply with and exceed the standards set by AS1428.1:2021, which outlines the minimum design requirements for new building work to enable access for people with disabilities.

This includes specific measurements and features for accessible toilets and showers, such as adequate space for pan circulation, specific heights for seats and basins, and detailed requirements for grab rails and other supports.

By adhering to these standards, we ensure our facilities are not only legally compliant but also offer enhanced usability and comfort for individuals with diverse needs.

*Note: Accessible toilets are always provided in addition to the required number when toilets are needed for a public event.
