Universal Barrier-free Washrooms

Universal Barrier-Free Washroom Solutions for Hamilton, Burlington, and the GTA

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act now mandates property owners to install universal washrooms by 2025. To ensure universal access, privacy, and user safety in universal washrooms, we offer complete solutions that meet the highest AODA standards.

A universal washroom is a washroom that is accessible to everyone. This means that the room has a variety of different options for people with disabilities, including wheelchair users, visually impaired individuals and those who are unsteady on their feet.

According to the Ontario Building Code (OBC) a universal washroom is a public bathroom that can be used by people of any gender and with any physical ability. The purpose of this washroom is to make sure everyone in the province has access to facilities that they need, without having to worry about not being able to use the bathroom or other facilities because of their gender, physical ability, or any other factors.

Universal washrooms are enclosed washrooms providing a barrier‐free toilet and sink and turning space to accommodate a wheeled mobility device.
