While there are no set sizes for toilet cubicles there are commonly used dimensions and both the Building Regulations Part M and Equality Act 2010 that place certain requirements on toilet cubicle dimensions.
Trade Washrooms supply modular toilet cubicle packs manufactured by Cubicle Store. We have indicated below the packs needed for each cubicle type.
Standard Toilet Cubicles
Recommended dimensions: 850mm (w) x 1500mm (d)
All standard toilet cubicles must have a minimum 450mm diameter turning space within the cubicle.
For accessibility, indicator bolts must be capable of being operated with a closed fist. Doors must allow for emergency access should a user collapse and become trapped inside the cubicle, blocking the door from opening.
For one standard toilet cubicle in a corner installation you require:
Enlarged Toilet Cubicles
Recommended dimensions: 1200mm (w) x 1500mm (d)
When four or more cubicles are provided in a washroom, one of these must be an enlarged cubicle with a minimum width of 1200mm and include an outward opening door.
For one enlarged toilet cubicle in a corner installation you require:
Ambulant Disabled Toilet Cubicles
Recommended dimensions: 800mm (w) x 1500mm (d)
Ambulant Disabled toilet cubicles similar to the standard cubicle but must be fitted with an outward opening door and grab rails to assist the physically impaired who do not require a wheelchair.
Every same-sex washroom must have at least one toilet cubicle that is suitable for the ambulant disabled. If there is only one cubicle in the washroom then this must be suitable for an ambulant disabled person.
Pair with one of our Ambulant Doc M Packs to complete your installation.
For one ambulant disabled cubicle in a corner installation you require:
Wheelchair Accessible Toilet Cubicles
Recommended dimensions: 2220mm x 1500mm
Wheelchair accessible toilet dimensions have been modified to accommodate a cubicle length of 2220mm, as opposed to its previous measurement of 2000mm. The outward opening door needs to be 950mm wide and have a 900mm opening.
This type of cubicle usually features in an individual built-up room rather than a panel cubicle. Trade Washrooms supply Doc M toilet packs for close-coupled, back-to-wall, low-level and wall-hung installations.
