Disabled shower room dimensions must be of such a size to comply with modern building regulations (Doc M of the UK building regulations).
The following article aims to explore disabled shower room dimensions and requirements further.
Put Simply, the recommended dimensions of a disabled shower and changing room are at least; 2200mm deep x 2000mm wide
The recommended dimensions of a disabled shower and changing room that also incorporates a corner WC are at least; 2500mm deep x 2400mm wide
Additional design considerations for a disabled shower and changing room include:
- Doors – Preferably are outward opening, and fitted with a horizontal closing bar fixed to the inside face.
- Seat – A wall-mounted tip-up seat should be supplied.
- Emergency Assistance Alarm – Should be reachable from the wall-mounted tip-up seat or the floor.
- Blue colour contrasting grab rails should be installed against white background walls for the visually impaired.
- The correct number, size, and positioning of grab rails should be installed within the room.
- A Shower Curtain – Should be installed that can be operated from the wall-mounted shower seat.
- Shower Head – Should be installed with separate independent controls.
