Healthcare & hospital cubicles and washrooms

High-performance healthcare and hospital cubicles and washrooms, providing increased accessibility, hygiene and privacy. 

Hospital Washroom Design Considerations  

Excelsior works with the healthcare sector to supply bespoke hospital cubicles and washrooms that are designed with the needs of the industry in mind. Our washrooms help patients and employees alike to feel cleansed and refreshed within hospitals, clinical surgeries and acute facilities.

This means ensuring cubicle hygiene, accessibility, durability and ease of maintenance are at the forefront of what we do to make washrooms as safe and as inviting as possible for users.

Cubicle Hygiene and Infection Control

80% of bacteria is transmitted by contact between hands and contaminated surfaces.

It’s therefore critical that washrooms and hospital cubicles are kept clean, especially in healthcare environments where bacteria and viruses are easily spread. Infection control is a priority when designing washrooms for the healthcare sector.


We build washrooms with accessibility in mind. To do so, Excelsior follows the regulations of the Equalities Act (2010), which provides the current guidelines for protection from discrimination in wider society. According to the Equalities Act, reasonable adjustments must be made to increase accessibility within buildings.

We are also compliant with Document M: Volume 2 – Buildings Other Than Dwellings and BS8300, which both provide guidance on inclusive and accessible building design.

The push for greater accessibility has also been aided by the 2021 fund for Changing Places Toilets, which provides the space and equipment needed for severely disabled people using cubicles in hospital.


Hospitals and clinics can be high-traffic areas, so ensuring washrooms are made to withstand this footfall is key to a durable environment.

Closing cubicles and washrooms prematurely for refurbishment is not only costly, but is disruptive to the environment. Therefore, Excelsior always manufactures and installs our quality washrooms with durability in mind.

Ease of Maintenance

All components within the washroom should be easy to clean and maintain in order to promote cleanliness and control any contamination within the healthcare environment. Antibacterial materials, plus smooth and easy-to-reach surfaces, make maintaining Excelsior’s washrooms a straightforward and speedy operation.

We have a number of suitable materials and washroom ranges for the healthcare sector, catering to all budgets, demographics, and project requirements.

It is essential that healthcare washrooms are built in line with the latest regulations in order to promote safety, privacy and accessibility, as well as cost efficiency through preventing the spread of infection. 1 in 10 patients in UK hospitals acquire an infection, costing the NHS £1 billion per year.

Excelsior’s production and healthcare washroom installation processes are undertaken in adherence to the Department of Health’s Health Technical Memoranda, which provides guidance on healthcare-specific elements of standards and best practices. This includes healthcare washroom installation,  creation, and refurbishment. As part of this memoranda, HTM 64 outlines the requirements of sanitaryware, for example.

Similarly, Health Building Note 00-02 on designing sanitary spaces, including washrooms and WCs, can be regarded for design advice.

The British Standard 6465 offers advice on sanitary installations, including the selection, installation and maintenance of sanitaryware.

Document M: Volume 2 – Buildings Other Than Dwellings, as previously referenced, offers guidance on disabled washroom facilities and accessibility.

There are many legislative and official advisory notes that should be considered when designing, manufacturing and installing washrooms and hospital cubicles for the healthcare sector. Excelsior aligns with industry standards and regulations to provide quality hospital cubicles and washrooms for all users.
