Accessible toilet systems

There  are estimated to be over 12m disabled people in the UK. Building regulations state that all non-domestic buildings should be fitted with a a well signposted disabled toilet and that each toilet needs to have a toilet alarm system in place.

According to BS8300:2001 Standards, new accessible toilets should have the following features as standard:

Disabled WC Alarm
  • Disabled WC alarm controller - with an audible alarm and visual LED. This would usually be situated in a manned building management room or reception. 
  • Ceiling Pull Switch with LED.- a red pull string with two handles; one at floor level and one reachable from the WC.
  • Reset Point with LED - reachable from a wheelchair and the WC so that if the cord is pulled in error, this can be quickly cancelled by the disabled toilet user.
  • An overdoor Light/ Sounder. - usually over the door on the outside, so as to attract attention of persons near by.
  • A disabled call alarm signal should be distinguishable audibly and visually from the fire alarm.

Nationwide Fire & Security engineers are expert in the installation, maintenance and testing of all major brands of disabled WC alarm systems.
