How many toilets are needed in a school washroom?
Marketing Manager, Charlotte Sheppard, sat down with Specification Manager for the South, Iain Hodd, to discuss the scales of provision and key requirements for education washrooms set out by the Department for Education.

When asked what the most commonly asked question is when discussing education washrooms with specifiers, Iain stated that without doubt it's “how many toilets should I specify for school washrooms?”

There isn’t a definitive answer to this question, as the number of toilets required in a school washroom depends on the age of the children or young adults using the facilities. Iain explains all the need to know information and shares some top tips on specifying fit-for-purpose washroom solutions.
