Bobrick Washroom Equipment Inc. has announced the release of four additional accessible toilet compartment combination units developed to achieve compliance with multiple critical building codes.
Bobrick’s B-3091, B-3092, B-30919 and B-30929 units, which combine toilet tissue dispensers, toilet seat cover dispensers and waste disposals in a single stainless steel unit, are oriented horizontally to enable compliance with 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as 2009 and 2017 ICC A117.1 standards and the 2019 California Building Code. The four models span recessed and surface-mounted, as well as left-mounted and right-mounted configurations.
While traditional vertical toilet compartment combination units reduce the 1?½-inch absolute clearance between the grab bar and the wall required by ADA standards, these new horizontal combination units are engineered to help architects and designers achieve full compliance. Additionally, providing a waste disposal on the side wall adjacent to the toilet tissue dispenser and in front of the rear wall of the compartment or room complies with the 2019 California Building Code.
As universal design, the idea that amenities can be accessed to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability, becomes a popular design consideration, these units provide a solution to allow maximum accessibility.
