A Changing Places Toilet requires over 12sqm of internal ﬂoorspace, and a minimum internal ceiling height of 2.4m. The large, clean space will comfortably fit one user, plus two assistants, if required. These measurements also meet the current recommended British Standard. Facilities that are smaller may exclude people who need the assistance of other people and need more space.
BS8300 is a British Standard that recommends the inclusion of a Changing Places toilet and sets out guidelines for the size of the space and what should be included. Our projects all meet and exceeds the guidelines. In addition, it meets Building Regulations Approved Document M recommendations, which sets out the guidelines for standard accessible toilets and recommends the inclusion of a Changing Places toilet in large public buildings.
Working with iHUS has been a master-stroke. They share our passion for accessibility and the modular facility creates new opportunities for the Changing Places campaign and expands who it can reach and what we can offer.
Our facilities are fully equipped with high quality equipment, deigned to meet the needs of most customers.
