'Next generation' changing places for shopping & leisure

10 January 2019

A newly redeveloped town centre, billed as being “the next generation in shopping and leisure”, has taken the ethos through to its customer facilities, especially for disabled visitors.

The Lexicon Bracknell, represents one of the biggest twon centre regenerations in the UK, investing more than the £240 million to transform the area.

IT has added 70 new shops and restaurants, and a new look a state of the art assisted, accessible toilet- a Changing Places.

The facility means that anyone who needs help to go to the toilet when away from home can relax and enjoy the venue, knowing there are appropriate toilets on hand.

Supplied and installed by Closomat, the UK’s leader in away from home assisted accessible toileting, the Changing Places incorporates a WC, adult-sized height adjustable changing bench, washbasin, and ceiling track hoist.

It compliments The Lexicon’s existing accessible toilets, and is located adjacent to them, in The Avenue Car Park.

All of the disabled toilet facilities are accessed via RADAR key, and are available during The Lexicon opening hours.

Local Changing Places campaigner Suze Woodley, whose son Luke has cerebral palsy, commented, “It is great news that The Lexicon designers have included these facilities. Without them, my family and I, and thousands like us, either have to limit the time we spend somewhere, or not go at all.

"Now, as a family we can go into Bracknell, to shop, go to the cinema, eat, and relax knowing there are suitable toilet facilities. Let’s hope more shopping and leisure venues follow The Lexicon’s example.”

Under Building Regulations and British Standards, a Changing Places should be provided in any facilities to which numbers of the public have access, and/or spend a length of time.

Closomat is Britain’s leading provider of helpful toileting solutions, at home and away, including Changing Places and their similar Space to Change facilities.

Uniquely, the company can provide an in-house, ‘one- stop-shop’ complete package for ‘away from home’ assisted accessible toilet facilities, from design and commissioning, through to project management, supply and installation, and can also provide subsequent maintenance and repair.

Its website www.clos-o-mat.com is the ‘go to’ resource available for campaigners, providers and specifiers alike, with a raft of support information including white papers, calling cards, CAD blocks, video and case studies.
