New Building Regulations are causing confusion for many specifier, confusion that can be clarified with new guidance from Clos-o-Mat.
Under Building Regulations Approved Document M 2013 Access To & Use of Buildings, toilet accommodation needs to be suitable not only for disabled people, but for all people who use the building. Further, it is ??desirable?? to include an enlarged unisex toilet incorporating an adult sized changing bench ?? a hygiene room or Changing Places toilet.
To help ensure compliance, Clos-o-Mat has produced an informative white paper: ??Considerations & Specification of Changing Places Accessible Toilets??.
?Judging from the emails and telephone calls we are receiving, a huge number of people aren??t fully aware of what these new requirements/desires are, and how they should be implemented,?? elaborates Clos-o-Mat Marketing Manager Robin Tuffley. ?They are turning to us for help, knowing we have been involved in the large proportion of hygiene rooms/Changing Places toilets already successfully installed. We have pooled that knowledge into the white paper, to give them a valuable, easy-to-access resource, to make their job easier.??
