Accessorising your Doc M compliant washroom

Doc M is the approved document which gives practical guidance on how the British Standard BS8300 can be incorporated in the built environment and is in place to make public spaces accessible and safe for disabled people. It is not legislative but is a guide to the minimum requirements to ensure compliance with building regulations.

Many supposedly accessible washrooms neither comply with the guidance in Doc M, nor do they meet British standards. Some are just difficult to use, but there are others that are quite dangerous.

As an able-bodied person, it may be difficult to appreciate exactly why some of the features offered from an accessible washroom are required and how important their positioning is.

We know that the minimum size for washrooms, the height of toilets and basins are all important when it comes to accessible bathrooms, but accessories also play a key part in ensuring that the room is compliant.

For example, a standard toilet roll dispenser would not be acceptable for someone who does not have a lot of strength to operate it with a closed fist or missing limbs. This would be the same for soap and paper towel dispensers. Not only would they need to be positioned correctly, they would also need to meet the requirements set out in Doc M.

We are pleased to confirm that we stock Doc M compliant accessories to complete the washroom, including; baby change units, soap, paper towel and toilet tissue dispensers.

We can provide stainless steel options, which are cost effective, durable, stylish and hygienic. Plus, many of our stainless steel products also come with an extended or lifetime warranty.
