PHYSICAL DISABILITY


Comfortable, Yet Functional


Clos-O-Mat tell us more about their newly published guidance - launched in a bid to ensure those living with physical disabilities can live comfortably, wherever that may be.


To help individuals remain independent, and in their own home, Clos-O-Mat has published new guidance. The mobility equipment supplier has brought out their ‘Design Guidance & Considerations for a Domestic Accessible Toilet/Wetroom’ white paper, giving advice on all aspects affecting the functionality and practicality of a bathroom, wetroom and toilet.

Then there are other considerations: will a particular shower chair fit over the toilet, is there the space for such an eventuality, what height is the toilet and can that be adjusted, what about using colour to help people with visual impairments.


“Our white paper covers all the details to think about to ensure a successful adaptation, which meets the user’s needs and so achieves best value for the provider.”


The white paper can be downloaded free of charge here. It is the latest in a series of guidance documents produced by Clos-o-Mat designed to ensure good specification of accessible toilet provision in domestic and public/commercial environments.


Clos-o-Mat is a British provider of toileting solutions for elderly & disabled people, be it in domestic or ‘away from home’ environments.
