Understanding difference between Ambulant and Accessible (Disabled) Toilets LH / RH
Understanding difference between Ambulant and Accessible (Disabled) Toilets LH / RH

What is the difference between Ambulant and Accessible (Disabled) facilities?

Ambulant toilets are specifically designed for those with ambulant disabilities that do not require the extra space that is provided by Accessible toilets. Primarily, they are for those that do not require the use of a wheelchair, for example, persons who have sensory loss, arthritis or require the use of a walking frame.

Accessible toilets are specifically designed to provide enough space to accommodate wheelchair access, and assistance when transferring from wheelchair to closet pan. Accessible toilets include features such as lower mirrors and washbasins, contrasting toilet seat colour, grab rails and braille signage.

Refer to “General Requirements for Access” document which details the specifications in regard to Ambulant and Accessible facility requirements, including fixture and fittings, minimum clearances and door latch requirements.

 

When are Accessible (Disabled) and Ambulant Toilets required? Are both Accessible and Ambulant Toilets required?

Whilst each building classification represents different ratio requirements for the provision of general sanitary facilities which is inclusive of Accessible andor Ambulant facilities, provided below is general example of the requirements for a café/restaurant use.

Where you have less than 20 patrons, there is no requirement to provide sanitary facilities for patron use, and where you have less than 10 staff you must provide at least one unisex Accessible toilet (as a minimum).

Where you have more than 20 and less than 50 patrons, general requirements include a minimum of one Accessible toilet AND the first male and female closet pan must be Ambulant compliant. Additional facilities are not required for staff as they can be incorporated into the provided patron sanitary facilities (separate staff sanitary facilities are not required) .

Where you exceed 50 patrons, any additional sanity facilities provided for patrons only need to be standard cubicles.

 It is important to note that the above is a very general guide on compliance requirements. Please check the Building Code of Australia/Premises Standards (AS 1428.1) for specific information.

Ambulant Sanitary facilities

 

The requirements to provide AMBULANT accessible facilities was prescribed in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) in 2011 as part of the adoption of the Disability (Access to Premises-Buildings) Standards.  Since the mandatory requirement for these facilities was introduced, there has been much confusion about when they are required and also the reason for providing them.

 

 

What is an ambulant accessible facility?

 

An ambulant accessible facility is one specifically designated for people with ambulant disabilities (such as people with arthritis or those that use a walking frame) who may find it very difficult to lower and raise from the pan but, do not require the full circulation space and support that a fully accessible toilet provides.

Wraparound Toilet Support Rail

The Wraparound Toilet Rail has numerous benefits and has proven to be particularly beneficial for Stroke patients suffering the aftermath of muscle weakness to one side of the body. As the paralysis or weakness affects either side of the body, the design of the Wraparound Rail enables the user to grip the rail with their 'good' hand and work their hand around the top rail thereby maintaining support while turning in order to lower themselves down onto the toilet. The Wraparound model greatly minimises the chance of falls.

This model will also give MS patients great support, and anyone using a wheelchair requiring a front approach transfer will find the Wraparound Rail ideal. When standing, both hands can be used to grip each side of the rail. Hand contact with the rail can be maintained while turning into a comfortable position in order to lower onto the toilet. When seated the user has support on both sides as well as at the back.

Stroke Sufferers, MS Sufferers, Cerebral Palsey Patients, Dementia and Alzheimer's Patients and the Frail Aged
