A heart attack happens every 5 minutes. A fast response is the difference between life and death.
The moral and legal obligation to keep people safe in buildings is the responsibility of the entire design and construction chain.
In any emergency situation, it is critical to respond fast and avoid further injury to the patient.
Ensure compliance with Building Regulations
Document M 5.4(e)
"WC compartment doors & doors to wheelchair-accessible unisex toilets, changing rooms or shower rooms have an emergency release mechanism so that they are capable of being opened outwards, from the outside, in case of emergency”.
But I already use 'Emergency Release Locks'
Standard cubicle locks simply allow you to release the lock from outside the cubicle and push the door inwards.
Building regulations specifically state that every WC compartment door needs to be able to be opened outwards in emergency.
Why have other doors been allowed on the market?
Other cubicles have worked around the building regulations by providing emergency access that involves either lifting or breaking the door. However, this will create a life-threatening delay in responding to an emergency.
