All public restrooms are required to provide handicap plumbing. Selecting the right toilet for your handicapped clientele can be difficult. A Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington can assist you in the proper selection, and can provide the proper installation required. Installation is specific, so that the user doesn’t have any problems in accessing, or using the toilet. For example, ensuring the correct height is essential.
Handicap plumbing is for anyone who needs assistance, or extra safety in the bathroom. This includes comfort height toilets, easy turn faucets, non-slip flooring, grab bars, and handheld showerheads, for example. Handheld showerheads are especially useful for those with impaired mobility, and greatly facilitate cleaning up.
Additional Handicapped Services
Selecting the correct toilet is the first step. It’s also important to consider other handicap fixtures to complete the bathroom and make it as handicapped-friendly as possible. A Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington can help you choose the right handicapped fixtures, rails, and bars.
The Handicapped Toilet
A handicapped toilet is 16-18 inches high, the height of most wheelchairs. The height provides an extra 2 to 4 inches in height so the user doesn’t have to bend as much as a standard toilet would require. This makes it easier for persons with disabilities to sit down and get back up. Handicapped toilets follow the guidelines established by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Modern plumbing also offers fixtures useful for the handicapped, aged and those with arthritis. For example, arthritic hands or those with difficulty using their hands will find a touch faucet, or a hands free faucet to be especially accommodating for their disability.
In addition, those with bad backs often have difficulty getting up or down in chairs, on toilets, and in or out of bathtubs. Handrails, handicapped toilets, and zero lip showers and those with seating are useful for those with difficulty moving around to live to more independently, and safely.
