Creating a warm welcome and a safe environment for both employees and visitors is essential for businesses looking to provide a positive experience. Accessibility should be prioritised in your workplace design to ensure that everyone who enters your building feels comfortable and accepted. A toilet refurbishment to improve accessibility should never be forgotten about.
At Universal Contracting, we specialise in commercial and industrial renovations and refurbishments. Our toilet refurbishment service can transform your washrooms into a place which is safe, well presented and fitted with DDA compliant toilets.
For tips on toilet refurbishment to improve accessibility, continue reading below.
To design a washroom which is simple to navigate, it is key to map out where each washroom utility will be located before installing. Consider where to locate a DDA compliant toilet, so that it offers easy access, including for people who will be transferring from a wheelchair. Ensure that the flush is nearby and easy to locate, there are handles nearby to help with standing and that the toilet height allows both people who are alone or aided to get on and off easily.
From there, create a logical route around the washroom, so it is practical to manoeuvre from the toilet, to the sink, to the hand dryer, to the exit.
Automating certain utilities in your toilet refurbishment to improve accessibility can be very helpful. For example, lighting which can detect when the washroom is in use and will remain lit until it is vacant again. This can create one less job when travelling from the door to the toilet.
Automated taps and hand dryers which are efficient can make handwashing a quick and easy process.
At Universal Contracting we complete toilet refurbishment projects in a range of different sectors, so if your facility requires a bath or shower, we can help to provide that.
When installing a shower, consider including a chair, whether it be free-standing, wheeled or wall-mounted. If installing a bath, there are choices for models which are height adjustable or feature walk-in designs. The utilities you include in your toilet refurbishment entirely depends on the needs you are looking to cater for.
Including sensory features such as different lights, textures and colours in your washroom can be great to consider in your toilet refurbishment design. Separating different areas of the washroom with wall and floor colours can make the room easier to navigate. Touch sensitive controls and different textures can make certain equipment easier to use.
Don’t forget to consider how to improve the smallest details, such as lever taps over knobs and toilet flush plates, as they can make a big difference to someone’s experience.
