The Petal sales team and technical advisors are available to offer helpful advice at every stage of your project. To help you plan and discuss your project with us we have illustrated some typical cubicle layouts with details on components and sizing.
The cubicle layout in your project will be dictated by the available space and the conditions required for Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliance. Please discuss these options with our team of advisors who will offer practical advice to help you design the optimal washroom layout.
Compliance with the DDA is an important factor in any washroom design. The following guidelines are provided to highlight the basic requirements of the legislation which should be addressed by your design professionals engaged on each project. Designers should also refer to DDA requirements for 30 point LRV difference in materials selected for use in cubicle systems.
Washrooms containing four or more cubicles must contain at least one enlarged cubicle. Enlarged cubicles must be a minimum of 1200mm wide and must have an outward opening door. Internal details must
In each same sex washroom there must be at least one cubicle to meet ambulant disabled needs. In the case of only a single cubicle in the washroom then it must be ambulant. The ambulant cubicle must include an outward opening door and be equipped with the DDA required internal grab rails.
Each standard cubicle must accommodate a 450mm diameter manoeuvring space between the arc of the inward opening door, WC pan and the internal side wall or division panel.
Petal recommends a minimum cubicle depth of 1500mm to facilitate this minimum manoeuvring space requirement. The use of outward opening doors may enable compliance in projects where cubicle depth is restricted.
