School Washrooms – Order Now For Next Academic Year

Table of Contents

Having previously discussed the main considerations when designing school washrooms in our two-part guide, now’s the perfect time for schools to order their brand-new washrooms so they can be designed and installed in time for the 2015/16 academic year.

Here at Spectrum Cubicles, we understand that a washroom is a vital part of any building, and it must be fully equipped with all the necessary features to present a clean, hygienic and modern image. The process of having a new washroom designed and installed and the length of time this can take will vary depending on each project. So, as we enter the summer months, there’s no better time than now to get the ball rolling, so your school has new washroom facilities fitted for the new academic year.

The welfare of students and staff is of paramount importance in schools, which is why the necessary facilities must be in place to ensure all requirements are met. Therefore, there must be adequate washing, toilet, rest and changing facilities made available, as well as somewhere clean to eat so all needs are catered for.


Preparation is key when designing any washroom, and for schools there is a great deal to consider to ensure students, teachers and visitors feel completely comfortable using the facilities. This includes:

  • Cubicles
  • Taps
  • Integrated Plumbing System (IPS) Panels
  • Accessibility
  • Layout
  • Acoustics


Above anything else, school washrooms must be hygienic and private. Therefore, careful consideration must be made during the design process to ensure these are the main priorities, so the washrooms deliver on functionality as well as style.

According to official guidance from the HSE, a commercial washroom must have:

  • A sufficient number of toilets
  • Separate facilities for men and women
  • Clean facilities
  • A supply of toilet paper and a means of disposing of sanitary wear for females
  • Facilities with hot and cold running water
  • Plenty of soap and means for drying hands, such as paper towels or a dryer
