Following demographic trends, buildings accessible to those with disabilities are becoming a key element in future oriented architecture. Hering's automatic public toilet facilities are DDA, ADA and DIN certified. For many years Hering has used the DIN 18024 / DIN 18040 as a basis for planning, building and structural implementation. The DIN CERTCO certificate underlines our position as a leading producer and supplier of accessible public toilets.
In compliance with standard norms, all facilities are equipped with a washbasin, tilted mirror and storage shelf. The automatically triggered “soap-water-air” function is illuminated by means of electro-mechanical sensor buttons. A key element of the APT is the 1.50 m x 1.50 m open space in front of the toilet bowl area.
Access to the APT is achieved by using either a CBF- key (German standard), inserting a coin or through a touch sensor button. The designated CBF- lock or touch sensor button is located next to the illuminated Free / Busy sign at a height of 85 cm and once pressed the door opens and closes on its own. To exit the toilet facility, the user simply pushes the illuminated touch sensor button ‘OPEN'.
