DCA conceived and implemented the first universal rail toilet with curved door access. This compact layout has provided the blueprint for all subsequent universal toilet installations on UK trains.
Whether for use on aircraft or trains, close collaboration with suppliers and manufacturers is the key to the successful design and integration of on-board toilet modules. We have experience of working closely with manufacturers of standalone vacuum toilet systems and with suppliers of complete turn-key toilet modules.
Ergonomics and human factors are naturally fundamental to the successful design of toilet facilities, particularly when ensuring easy access and use by disabled customers. This means complying with the recent PRM/TSI Regulations, which we achieve through a combination of ergonomic and human factors theory and the practical assessment of full size rigs and mock-ups.
