Whether you have a public washroom, or one built for staff use behind the scenes, it’s essential you make things as accessible as possible. A disabled washroom should always be easy for people with limited mobility or specific needs to use. That often means you need to either adapt your existing washroom units, or to install accessible units from scratch. At Sanitaryware Supplies, we’re pleased to offer a wide array of solutions for disabled toilets and more.
We provide disabled toilet packs, accessible wash units and care home bathroom essentials for companies up and down the UK. If you are unsure of what your disabled toilet unit is likely to need moving forwards, here is a quick guide to how we may be able to help.
When looking for disabled toilet packs or disabled washroom setups, you will likely come across the terms Document M and Doc M. Doc M refers to regulations that UK buildings must adhere to with regard to accessibility and disabled washroom care. Therefore, if you are looking for a complete fit-out, you may wish to purchase a Doc M disabled toilet package. Sanitaryware’s range of toilet packs contains fittings and facilities that adhere to all Doc M standards and requirements.
What’s more, you may find that you need to install a complete shower space that adheres to Doc M, or Document M. There’s no need to worry – as we provide a variety of rails and accessible units that you can use to adapt your spaces within the regulations set by the building code.
At Sanitaryware Supplies, we of course recognise that everyone’s needs will be slightly different from case to case. Therefore, when you purchase a disabled toilet package or shower package from our online store, you can expect inclusive features that aim to facilitate a wide range of needs.
For example, our disabled shower room packs include grab bars, a backrest, and drop down rails. Therefore, washroom users will be able to easily support themselves while using your facilities – grab handles are simple to install and withstand incredible pressure, meaning they can be relied on for extensive use for years to come.
Of course, you can also choose to embellish and enhance your disabled washroom or toilet pack with additional facilities. We’re pleased to offer a wonderful line in shower seats and sliding heads, for example, which help to make otherwise inaccessible ‘default’ fittings that little bit easier to manage.
Our multi-hinge support options also allow your washroom and/or toilet services to be incredibly flexible. There is more to ensuring a disabled toilet covers all bases than simply setting up a few rails. That’s why, when you choose products from Sanitaryware Supplies, you can be sure you’re investing in versatile fittings to adapt to near unlimited demand. As mentioned, different people have different requirements, and that means making your wash facilities as straightforward and as open as possible.
Document M advises on a number of different disabled toilet and washroom requirements for public and commercial buildings. As always, it makes crucial sense to refer to the regulations you are bound by in the event of any queries.
Sanitaryware Supplies offers comprehensive packs that you can use in the event of a bathroom or toilet fit-out. While we highly recommend you accessorise your disabled facilities with additional features, our packs will supply you with the basic fittings Doc M demands of you.
Why not look at ways you can make disabled toilet users’ lives even easier? In line with the global push for better hygiene practice, we recommend installing no-touch taps in disabled toilet setups. Not only do these units help to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, they also require no over-exertion from people who need additional support.
Of course, the more accessible you make a disabled washroom, the better. We highly encourage you to look beyond ‘default’ measures and to consider your individual users. Do you already have useful feedback with regard to your existing facilities? It may be time to start planning ahead!
It is easier than you may imagine to set up and manage an accessible disabled toilet and washroom. Sanitaryware Supplies is here to make things that little bit easier for you. Take a look at our Doc M disabled toilet packages and our care home bathroom essentials via our online catalogue.
