Feeding rooms shall be provided in:

• Shopping malls
• Amusement parks and theme parks
• Leisure centres

It is recommended that 1 feeding room be provided for each block of toilets. At least 1 feeding room within 300 m distance from any part of the building shall be provided.

 

A feeding room shall meet the following requirements:

 

1. Its surface shall be at least 7 sq. meters for individual feeding rooms and 10 sq. meters for dual feeding rooms.

2. Its design has to ensure an ease of movement with a pram and a child on the arms.

3. It shall have proper ventilation for any smell generated by the diaper waste bins as well as proper place for the diaper waste bins.

4. Furniture shall have a reflectance contrast with the walls of at least 30 points LRV (Light Reflectance Value).

 

All elements and appliances described in the drawing shall be provided although not necessarily with the same distribution.

Glossary of Terms

Tactile pavements are textured surfaces with contrasted colour that are perceptible and identifiable by feel or cane or residual functional vision that warns or informs people with visual disabilities.

Truncated domes in a grid pattern to provide a tactile surface under feet of blind users. They are used as a used as a warning of upcoming level changes or obstacles on the course of travel.

Flat topped elongated bars in the paving surface under feet of blind people. They are used as a directional sign to assist the independent mobility of people with visual disabilities.

Pendulum test value (PTV) is a measurement of the slip resistance of a floor surface, either an external or internal floor of a building. The least slip resistance a surface material is, the more likely people may skid or trip, especially in wet conditions. In average circumstances, slip-resistance is as follows:

0-18 = very low slip-resistance.

18-25 = moderate slip-resistance.

25-36 = good slip resistance.

Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a numeric scale that is used to identify how much light a colour reflects or absorbs. It is used in universal design to identify the contrast between two colours. This can help to determine if there is sufficient contrast to visually identify a feature such as a fonts on a sign, elevator call button, a handrail and other items which need to be seen by visually impaired people.

The interaction space is the space required by a person to interact with another person, furniture, appliance, machine or another element.
