Changing places made easy


New Building Regulations are causing confusion for many specifiers, 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??.


Robin Tuffley, Clos-o-Mat Marketing Manager commented ?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??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.??


The white paper covers all requirements for compliance in one place, and can be downloaded direct from Clos-o-Mat??s website www.clos-o-mat.com.


Clos-o-Mat, founded 50 years ago, is the only company in its field with the in-house capability and expertise to design, supply, install, commission and service all the equipment for a hygiene room/ Changing Places toilet, from grab rails through hoists and height adjustable basins to automatic (??wash and dry??) toilets and toilet lifters. It has a proven track record in the successful design, supply, installation and commissioning of scores of hygiene rooms and Changing Places toilets, including Wembley Stadium, National Exhibition Centre, Gatwick Airport, Cadbury World and Bullring Birmingham.
