London Gatwick is the second largest airport in the UK, flying to more destinations than any other UK airport. Gatwick has more than 280,000 flights across 56 airlines, carrying more than 45 million passengers per year.
Since 2009, Gatwick has undergone a major transformation to improve passenger experience through a £2.5 billion investment programme to all areas of the airport, including the washrooms.
With a requirement for a robust washroom to withstand the heavy footfall, System M toilet cubicles were recommended for its durable and stylish design with their unique ability to access the cubicles in less than 30 seconds in an emergency.
The patented system enables normally inward opening doors to be opened outwards in the event of an emergency, without having to break components or lift-off pilasters or doors, the perfect solution for an airport.
To complement the washrooms, Washwall, a service integrated vanity solution was specified for its discreet and simple access to services for maintenance staff and for its streamlined experience for the users. With over 100 configurations, the design possibilities were endless.
The overall finish was completed with Clipclad, a commercial washroom wall panelling solution, complete with pre-plumbed services and a unique design, all with a mounted glass cladding.
At Venesta Washrooms, we understand that safety is paramount in busy airports. With our System M toilet cubicle range, Gatwick has peace of mind they are able to react quickly and easily in an emergency without damage to their washroom systems.
System M features a unique emergency release system - the only toilet cubicle to allow rapid and safe access within an industry-leading 30 seconds.
