Meeting the new Department for Education requirements for School Washrooms



Mobile phone camera mis-use in School toilet areas is becoming a wide-spread issue, which the DfE (Department for Education) have strongly addressed – updating their school washroom design brief in November and further again in March 2021 and in some instances have even failed project handovers if the WC cubicle system installed doesn’t fully prevent the mis-use of mobile phones.

The key issue is that school washroom cubicles must have anti-finger trap hinges but these also provide a thin gap which a smart phone can be inserted through revealing a clear picture of the user inside the cubicle, as shown in the diagram below:




Hive is a unique cubicle system developed to meet this issue and also has a retro-fit option available for installations already completed.

We worked with our clients, contractors and architects to create this modular Toilet Cubicle system which  is available for New Build Schools with a fully integrated anti-phone trim and also as a retro fit for large School Refurbishments.
