What are Changing Places?
Changing Places facilities are different to standard accessible toilets. They have extra features, more space and can often be accessed 24/7 with a Master Locksmith Access Key (MLAK).
Each Changing Places toilet provides:
- Push button entry and exit
- Height adjustable adult-sized change table
- Ceiling hoist
- Additional circulation space
- A safe and clean environment
