N&C Phlexicare, inventor of the official radar lock and key scheme, has expressed its thanks to a Paralympian for speaking out about her experience of inaccessible toilets on a train last year.
The firm, whose system offers environments all over the country the chance to have disabled toilet facilities which are easy to install and access, praised Anne Wafula Strike and hopes the attention raised will draw a larger focus on improving access for toilets around the country.
Strike brought the issue of accessible toilet facilities on trains to national attention in December following a train journey where the company did not have accessible toilets at the time.
The concept behind the radar lock and key is to offer all less abled people independent access to locked public toilets around the country via the National Key Scheme (NKS) with their very own radar lock key.
The idea of needing a key to use these toilets was put in place to ensure that they were not used inappropriately and were kept in a suitable state for users. The Radar lock has been tested to BSEN12209:2003, meets EN1670:2007 Grade 5 and satisfies the requirements set in the Equality Act 2010 (BSEN300:2009).
N&C Phlexicare highly recommend radar lock installation for all public places to make sure that all of those that own a radar key are able to access the toilet as of when needed without any inconvenience or time wasted.
