The importance in providing access to public washrooms for the one in five Australian’s living with some type of disability is reflected by current Australian Standards for disabled access and mobility and their adoption as deemed-to-satisfy provisions in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Australian Standard AS 1428.1-2009 – Design for Access and Mobility relates directly to the accessibility of the built environment for the disabled. The Standards specify the design requirements for new building work, as required by the BCA and the Premises Standards, to provide access for people with disabilities.

Specifying the right products to meet AS 1428.1-2009 at the beginning of a project is critical to ensuring regulatory approval.

A new guide from global innovators in washroom products, ASI JDMACDONALD, explores the design and specification of accessible compliant commercial washrooms to comply with Australian Standard 1428.1-2009.

ASI JD MacDonald provides a comprehensive range of products specifically designed to be used in accessible compliant spaces. The product range includes grab rails, back rests, toilet roll holders, soap dispensers, mirrors, hand dryers, paper towel dispensers, waste bins, combination units, hooks, shelves, shower seats, baby change stations, sanitary disposal units and shower heads.

The guide not only provides architects with a how-to for specifying ASI JD MacDonald compliant products, but also provides detailed guidance for the design of these spaces as well as the installation of the products, to help ensure regulatory approval.
