BS8300 Disabled Toilet Alarms – including waterproof to IP65 solution
All our disabled toilet alarm systems, including the waterproof (IP65) solution, are fully compliant with BS8300
Disabled people should be able to find, and use, suitable toilet accommodation no less easily than non-disabled people. All disabled toilet cubicles should be fitted a with suitable ‘call for assistance’ alarm system. The waterproof disabled toilet alarm products also enable mounting of pull cords and reset buttons within wet rooms and shower cubicles.
The alarm system must not be confused (visually or audibly) with a building’s fire alarm. The alarm pull cord needs to be sited within easy reach and operable from two levels – one being near the floor in case of a fall. The cord needs to be freely available and not tied or wrapped around any fixed object. More information regarding the positioning of toilet alarms and requirements can be found in the British Standard (BS8300) or in brief in our summary document.
All our toilet alarm kits are available with a choice of white or stainless steel finish (except the waterproof disabled toilet alarm system).
