Local council deploys latest toilet tech to enhance accessibility


Tamworth Borough Council is using the latest toilet technology to deliver enhanced facilities.

The main block of unisex cubicles in the grounds of historic Tamworth Castle now uses advanced technology to enable them to be remotely controllable so that availability meets demand, including into the evening, rather than limited by seasonal opening hours.

Baby change and conventional wheelchair-accessible toilets are also included in the scheme alongside an assisted accessible Changing Places toilet which features a Closomat Palma Vita wash & dry/smart toilet.

Automatically operated, the Closomat effectively washes and dries the user with no need to wipe with toilet paper, giving greater cleanliness and hygiene for those who require assistance.

The whole project has been executed by smart public toilet provider Healthmatic who has in turn partnered with leading assisted accessible WC provider Closomat to create Tamworth’s first Changing Places toilet facility as part of the scheme.
