Hygiene Rooms: to meet the needs of disabled pupils & students
The number of disabled children has increased by 62% in the past 25 years.
School building guidelines specify inclusion of a specialist hygiene room, to address the needs of disabled pupils who may need help when toileting, equipped to encourage their independence, but also to deal with "little accidents", be the pupil able or disabled.
Closomat has a proven track record with hundreds of successfully completed rooms in primary, secondary, special needs schools, colleges and universities across the country. Its flexibility enables equipment supply only through to complete project management with ongoing service and maintenance of equipment.
Because of the physical difficulties some of our students have, we needed to undertake some adaptations to conventional toilet facilities. We have created a new room, with a height-adjustable Closomat, height-adjustable basin and height-adjustable changing table, all supplied by Total Hygiene. The students love it! We worked closely with a whole range of professionals to get the best advice, and provide the most flexible facilities that would meet the needs, and increase independence, of not only our current students, but those of the future.
