It is an incredibly exciting day today – as the 2000th Changing Places Toilet is officially registered! Leeds United’s stadium, Elland Road, is the lucky venue for this auspicious occasion, and we are thrilled that Astor Bannerman equipment was chosen for the project.

See the Changing Places Toilet on the national map.

Registrations of Changing Places toilets began back in 2008, with just 13 CPTs registered in that first year. Since then, the Changing Places message has spread far and wide, bringing increasingly more venues into the inclusive fold. Last year Changing Places UK registered 162 new CPTs across the UK and this year looks to be on-track to beat that again!

As a company we have been always been closely involved with the Changing Places campaign, and have driven improvements in the standards for the specialist equipment needed in these important facilities over the years. Innovation in equipment development is key in ensuring that the needs of the people using Changing Places Toilets are met, which is why we developed the only changing table designed specifically for public spaces – the Astor Invincible

Astor Bannerman supported the team working on the Elland Road project – giving design advice and supplying equipment for the new facility.

The equipment in the Changing Places toilet includes:

Astor Shower Trolley

Astor OT200 Overhead Hoist

ABW-CP Height Adjustable Wash Basin

– Peninsular Toilet

KwickScreen Wall Mounted Privacy Screen

– Shower

– Accessories

There’s no denying that the Leeds area demonstrates a fantastic commitment to accessibility and inclusion with a high number of registered CPTs. On their decision to install a Changing Places toilet at the stadium, Morrie Eisenberg, Chief Operating Officer at Leeds United said:

“We are delighted that the 2000th registered Changing Places toilet has been installed at Elland Road, as we continue to try and make the stadium as inclusive and accessible as possible. The feedback from supporters has been brilliant and it was a real team effort to make this happen, so a huge thank you to everyone involved.”

We are always developing new products, and are proud to have developed the Astor Invincible, the first changing table designed specifically for Changing Places toilets.
