Scope This part of BS 6465 gives recommendations recommendations for the minimum space needed to install, use and maintain sanitary appliances in most types of building. This British Standard gives recommendations recommendations for spaces for sanitary appliances, but, although it provides some examples of dimensions of rooms or cubicles, it does not generally give minimum dimensions of the rooms in which they are installed.                      

The recommendations in this British Standard do not cover the space needs for sanitary appliances used by all disabled people, which are covered in BS 8300 1 and BS 9266. These recommendations recommendations in this British Standard do not cover the space needs for specialist catering, medical, laboratory or cultural appliances or practices. NOTE 2 Attention is is drawn to the applicable building building and water regulations. regulations. NOTE 3  Annex A gives A gives the minimum space needed for example room layouts and Annex and  Annex B gives B gives information on circulation space depth.

NOTE 5 This list is not exhaustive.

A shower area in a wet room should be furthest away from the door to minimize potential slipping and falling hazards. Toilet paper dispensers or any bins should not be positioned such that access to, or use of, the appliances is impaired. NOTE 6 Typical domestic toilet toilet layouts, including including visitable toilet toilet examples are given in Figure 22. 22.

Wash basins should not impede access especially in visitable toilets. In Northern Ireland, the width of the activity space for oblique access for a visitable toilet should be increased to 900 mm.
