Just reminiscing on my travels to merry old London 🇬🇧 with my brother @jzumehler in 2012. I’ve been to the UK twice now and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. From the cinematic cityscape to the lovely locals ... The capital of Great Britain is stocked full of world history, yet it is a modern city. Definitely one of my absolute favorite trips. 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧💂♂️ #londoncalling#uk#london#unitedkingdom
Changing Places Toilets.
This is a national campaign to provide an accessible standard.
Changing Places toilets are designed to meet the needs of people with complex care needs.
Requirements of a Changing Places Toilet as in the British Standards: BS8300:2009 ▪adequate space for a disabled person when they are not in their wheelchair, their wheelchair and one or two carers – 12sqm (3m x 4m) ▪an adult sized, height adjustable changing bench, wall mounted or free standing ▪a ceiling tracking or a mobile hoist ▪a peninsular (centrally placed) toilet ▪a privacy screen or curtain ▪a large bin for pads ▪an emergency alarm ▪a paper roll ▪a non slip floor
Changing places toilets are in addition to standard accessible toilets.
Image description: This Changing Places toilet has plenty of space, a clean bright floor (this one is yellow), with a height-adjustable changing bench with a tracking hoist system, adjustable wash hand basin, peninsular toilet and grab rails, and a large bin for disposable pads.
Space-wise, all you really need to instal a fully functional changing places toilet is a space little bit bigger than your normal parking space.
