Accessible toilets prove they open doors to more customers
A growing number of brands are using Closomat’s expertise to upgrade their accessible toilets to include more space and a greater range of equipment – specifically a hoist, adult- sized changing bench and privacy screen, aka Changing Places, Space to Change. Alton Towers opened its Changing Places and Space to Change at the start of the 2017 season and is seeing the facilities used on average 20 times/day, every day.
Cornwall Services on the busy A30 trunk road opened its facility a year ago, and is seeing it used on average 10 times/day, with visitors reporting stopping there specifically because of the toilet.
uThe new Changing Places facilies at JD Weatherspoon’s showcase venue, Velvet Coaster.
“We are so pleased with the positive response we continue to have: one of the best projects I think I’ve been involved with in terms of the effect it has directly had on guests,” says Justine Locker, Resort Excellence Manager at Alton Towers.
Alex Lawson, Manager at Cornwall Services further comments: “Customers are returning time and time again, and planning trips with a stop scheduled here, because they need these toilet facilities. We’re the only Services in the region, to our knowledge, to have them.” Adds Rebecca White, Manager at JD Wetherspoon’s showcase venue Velvet Coaster: “It’s used daily – definitely worth putting in. Customers tell us they came because they knew we have the Changing Places.” Under Building Regulations and British Standards, it is desirable in buildings to which the public have access to include, in addition to a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet, a 3m x 4m wheelchair-accessible WC facility with a ceiling track hoist, adult-sized changing bench and privacy screen: a Changing Places toilet.

A Sterling job for the UK’s largest primary school
Victorian era Gascoigne Primary has expanded considerably over the years. The most recent development is an £11m three-storey facility for 1,500 pupils with a rooftop playground overlooking the Thames Barrier and Barking Abbey. To power this large and complex building, cable management has been delivered by Marshall- Tufflex’s Sterling Profile system in white with a charcoal main compartment cover – a versatile, cost-effective, and high quality trunking, proven to meet the demands of school environments. Sterling Profile was specified following the electrical contractor’s visit to an open day at Edmundson Electrical in Crayford, where they were impressed by the quality and cost-effectiveness of the Marshall- Tufflex system.
The contractor said: “One of the key factors in our decision was Sterling’s versatility – it can be used at a 90° bend, allowing installers to easily fit it in the new school without too much doctoring. Supply chain was also very important – we used hundreds of
metres at Gascoigne, with the three compartment trunking in every single room apart from the kitchen and main hall.
“Being the largest school in the UK this is a significant project and Sterling has more than stood up to the challenge.”
Sterling Profile 1 is easy and cost effective to use and is often favoured by electrical contractors and installers. u167 x 50mm uThree segregated compartments each with separate access

With demand typically high in Extra Care buildings, achieving energy-efficient, reliable heating and hot water was key to ensure low operating costs and sustainability.
