GigLoo were aproached to supply the disabled showers at Glastonbury this year. To date the disabled showers were converted portable toilets which were not comfortable nor provided a good user experience.
GigLoo engineers have spent two years working out the needs for multiple disabilites to ensure we built a solution for the many and not just the few.
The first obstacle we addressed was access, we needed to ensure the entrance was low enough so that a long ramp was not required as this can be as much a hindrance as a help. When installed on level ground the ramp sits at 1:40 as the floor level on entry is only 100mm high. The internal floor has a gradual slope to the rear of the cubicle with no internal steps or trays. It is the full wet room experience.
There are two seats in the pod the main one is in the corner with the shower, the other is in the opposing corner and is there as a drying seat. All of this and more are the reason so many users gave us the amazing feedback they did. One person even commented that the shower was better than the one he had at home.
The showers are booked for many more outings for the rest of the 2017 season, but there are still dates available if you have a function or event.
