Some accessible toilets are fitted with an MLAK key. The MLAK is a master key that fits into specially designed locks allowing 24 hour access to MLAK fitted accessible public toilets nationwide. You can purchase a key that opens all accessible toilets displaying the MLAK symbol. The key can be purchased directly from a Master Locksmith in your local area or you can complete the order form available from the Master Locksmiths website. To find your local locksmith use the Find a Master Locksmith on the Master Locksmiths website or call the Master Locksmiths on 03 9338 8822.
Looking for a toilet with an adult change table and hoist?
Adult change and hoist facilities
There are some accessible toilets in the community fitted with an adult change table and hoist and as a result of changes to the National Construction Code that came into effect on 1 May 2019 it will be a requirement for separate accessible adult change facilities (AACF) to be constructed in new or developed public buildings including shopping centres, airports, theatres, galleries, aquatic facilities and other public assembly buildings with occupancies over a certain size.
SCIA reckons this is great news for people who require these facilities. You can search for existing facilities with these features now on the National Public Toilet Map (select the C symbol icon to find).
