Designing your Care Bathroom
Spatial layouts are critical in the design of accessible compliant toilets and must include adequate circulation space within the room for wheelchair access, as well as installation of components at the correct heights, in accordance with AS1428.1-2009. The same guidelines can be adopted for residential care bathrooms.
Figures A and B show a sample layout for an accessible compliant commercial toilet room.

Independent assessment and approval must be undertaken by suitably qualified consultants to ensure compliance with the Australian Standards and any applicable building codes.
