Experienced Renovation Experts

The UK has a diverse mix of historic and modern school buildings but, regardless of the architectural style, it is important to ensure a safe, clean and modern environment is maintained for pupils and teachers. Willis Systems has considerable experience providing products for the refurbishment of toilets, changing rooms and shower facilities in schools, colleges and nurseries. Now is the time for your school washroom renovation to take place.

Willis Systems can help transform school washrooms from dirty and dark to beautiful and functional facilities, making them a pleasant place to visit rather than a place for bullying incidents.

We listen to school administrators to determine your existing challenges. We then share our expertise to create solutions which fit your budget and timeline. 

Controlling the Spread of Germs in School Washrooms

The outbreak of COVID-19, and the debate about when children in the UK should return to school, has further highlighted changes being made to school washrooms in order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

COVID-19 is transmitted through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person, and from touching contaminated surfaces before touching one’s face. The spread of COVID-19 can be slowed down, or prevented, by washing hands often with soap and water in addition to cleaning frequently-touched surfaces and objects.

School toilets have high traffic levels, making touchless technology an ideal solution to control infection. Anti-microbial material selection, door-less entry, automatically flushing toilets and urinals, and touchless dispensers for soap and paper products can all be incorporated into your design to decrease chances of spreading germs. 

Individual School Washroom Design

We work with you to create your own unique modern, fresh washroom design. We can apply your school branding to the cubicle panels using the latest digital printing techniques or CNC engraving. Uniquely branded school washrooms have been proven to reduce vandalism, as they give pupils a sense of ownership and pride.

The choice of panel material is important to increase the life of the washroom and provide users with adequate privacy. Our panels are manufactured from HPL (high pressure laminate) and SGL (solid grade laminate), which are durable, hygienic materials that can easily be wiped clean and stand up to regular disinfection.

Willis Systems understands that school washrooms must be available during the term period, so we increase production capacity during school holidays to meet demand.  This ensures installers finish on time and do not cause an interruption to daily school activities. 

Cost Effective and Environment Friendly

Willis Systems aims to implement the most cost effective and environmentally friendly school washroom refurbishment solutions, reducing your ongoing energy costs and water usage.

Our energy saving solutions include infrared sensor taps and touch-free flushing to reduce water consumption.

Light touch and sensor taps are becoming popular in primary schools where younger children have problems operating lever and push taps.

Open Plan Gender Neutral Washroom Areas

The growing trend in school washroom refurbishment is open plan washroom areas in corridors. These washrooms have full-height cubicle doors, giving privacy to the users, while giving supervisors a full view of the area.

The adoption of open plan school washrooms is becoming more popular with schools realising their many benefits.  Open plan, gender-neutral washrooms meet requirements of today’s gender-neutral students and reduce bullying and vandalism due to improved supervision.

The open plan spaces are easier to supervise, without overly affecting pupil privacy, and handwashing facilities can be located midway between the toilets.

Disabled Access in School Washrooms

Children with disabilities and other specialist needs need easy access to school washroom facilities. Disabled washrooms should not be discriminatory in terms of their design.

Each toilet needs to have enough space to maneuver a wheelchair, or other mobility aid, within comfortably and be kitted out with all the right equipment.

Willis Systems has vast knowledge of regulations and is able to supply packs of fixtures and fittings for disabled toilets such as grab rails.
