UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon has drafted in the services and equipment of bathroom specialist Closomat to kit out one of its newest sites.
A new Changing Places facility at the Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party pub is part of the operator’s investment in access at a number of its UK sites.
The Changing Places wheelchair-accessible toilet is fitted for people who need help with their intimate hygiene.
The facility gives more space than a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet, and additional equipment, including an adult sized height adjustable changing bench, height adjustable washbasin, ceiling track hoist and privacy screen.
It means that anyone enjoying the pub but who need help to go to the toilet, and their carer(s), have appropriate facilities, and can go somewhere that otherwise they would be unable to enjoy.
The company installed a full Changing Places facility at the £4.5m Royal Victoria Pavilion in Ramsgate and brought in a full range of access and mobility equipment to ensure the pub is usable by all customers.
