Specification - Accessible Plus

Having the right toilet facilities gives more people the freedom to choose you for their everyday education, leisure and entertainment activities.

Portaloo® Accessible Plus is specially designed for people with a range of profound and complex disabilities who cannot use the toilet independently and need more space and more support than is provided in a standard accessible toilet. Fully accessible toilets offer people with severe disabilities the freedom to get out and enjoy activities and services that might otherwise be inaccessible to them due to a lack of suitable facilities.

The easy-to-install solution that makes you compliant

Fully compliant with the Equality Act 2010 to ensure that the building design meets the needs of disabled people and their carers, it offers a spacious design to accommodate up to two carers where additional support is needed, and there is enough room for a wheelchair to be positioned safely out of the way while the facilities are being used.

More than just a toilet, Portaloo Accessible Plus comes fully equipped with a hoist, changing bench and shower facilities to provide more comfort, dignity and privacy for users and their carers.
