Ambulant Toilet FAQs
What does ambulant toilet mean?
An ambulant toilet is designed for people with ambulant disabilities which do not confine them to a wheelchair or bed (such as those suffering from arthritis or in need of a walking frame). Essentially, an ambulant toilet is more accessible than a regular toilet as it has certain supports in place such as grab rails to support the user.
What’s the difference between an ambulant toilet and a disabled toilet?
Ambulant toilet cubicles are specifically designed for those with ambulant disabilities (such as mobility issues and sensory loss) who do not require the use of a wheelchair or are confined to a bed. Whilst an ambulant toilet does also have grab rails and extra space to accommodate users, it is still smaller in size when compared to a disabled toilet which has other different requirements including:
Lower washbasins and mirrors
Certain door latch requirements
Lower toilet pans
Can facilitate colostomy bag users
Certain fixture and fitting requirements
Larger minimum door clearances
Ambulant disabled toilet requirements
Ambulant toilet cubicles are a requirement for part M of the Building Regulations and there needs to be at least one ambulant toilet cubicle per washroom. In terms of size, an ambulant toilet needs to have a minimum of 800mm between the cubicle walls and each side of the toilet, an outswinging door of at least 650mm and have a length of 850mm to adequately accommodate those with ambulant disabilities. At least three grab rails are needed for supporting the user and other factors addressed by Doc M and BS8300 (which includes the use of thermostatic mixing valves) also apply.

Benefits of an ambulant toilet
Having an ambulant disabled toilet is a requirement for buildings so that washrooms are accessible to all. The benefits of an ambulant toilet include:
They improve accessibility in toilet cubicles so users with ambulant disabilities can use them comfortably.
They help to give those with ambulant disabilities more confidence and independence to use washroom facilities without the help of carers or staff. This is because they are fitted with equipment such as grab rails and necessary adjustments which include a raised toilet pan.
They reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring as users are better able to support themselves with the extra safety measures in place.
Here at Commercial Washrooms, we offer a choice in colour of grab rails which allows you to create an ambulant toilet that fits in with your business, school, leisure centre or other commercial building’s theme.
