The ability to perform simple, everyday tasks is one that is often taken for granted. When our physical abilities limit us from performing simple tasks with ease, it can be extremely frustrating – not to mention dangerous. Comfort height and ADA compliant toilets are a great choice for those with physical limitations and mobility issues. These toilets are higher than normal toilets and often include other useful settings such as powerful flushes and elongated toilet bowls for added comfort. Comfort height and ADA toilets are the safest, best choice for those with unique physical needs and mobility issues.
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) sets strict rules for toilet requirements to allow for ease of use of facilities for those with limitations. While the requirements are lengthy, in short, ADA compliant toilets must be between 17 to 19 inches from floor to toilet seat, as opposed to the standard 15 inches of a regular toilet seat. There are also several regulations that need to be met for commercial ADA compliance in restrooms, such as allowing for ample space for wheelchairs and including a set amount of grab bars for safety.
Comfort height toilets are relatively customizable, with several height options available. When choosing the right comfort toilet for you, it is important to take your current and future physical needs into consideration. Ultra-high comfort toilets feature a 19” tall toilet bowl height, making it easier for those with physical limitations to sit, stand, and maintain the sense of dignity and independence that everyone deserves.
Toilet Seats Service FAQs
Bidet toilet seats are not only a luxury item – they are sometimes a necessity for individuals with mobility issues or who are advanced in age. Bidet toilet seats are easy to use and have several settings and functionalities that aid in important personal hygiene and assist in independence.
Heated toilet seats provide warmth and added comfort for individuals aging in place. Installation of heated toilet seats is relatively simple and the user can begin experiencing the advantages of the seat immediately. Along with the obvious added comfort from warmth, heated toilet seats can also help with arthritic pain and stiff muscles.
Heavy, fast-closing toilet seats and lids can be a hazard for individuals with limited mobility or physical impairments. Gold Seal Plumbing recommends slow close toilet seats and lids for optimal safety of our aging in place customers. Slow close lids can be installed on your existing toilet or on any ADA compliant toilet.
