The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham has unveiled its new Changing Places accessible toilet, in the main Hall 20 Atrium, where the disability event, Naidex, is held, and which is accessible to all shows and events held in Halls 6 through to 20. Supplied and installed by Clos-o-Mat, the toilet is the result of an accessibility audit, which highlighted the need for the resource. The Changing Places facility has more space, to enable a wheelchair user and their carer to manoeuvre with ease, plus equipment including a height adjustable adult sized changing bench and hoist. The NEC has chosen to further extend functionality of the room by replacing the standard WC with a Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita wash and dry (automatic) toilet, with additional optional touch-sensitive switch, manufactured in the UK, by Clos-o-Mat. Looking like, and capable of being used as, a conventional WC, the Palma Vita has in-built douching and drying facilities.
