Handicapped Toilets

First of all, what is a handicapped toilet?

A handicap toilet is an accessible toilet designed to accommodate people with physical disabilities. Persons with reduced mobility find them useful, as do those with weak legs, as a higher toilet bowl makes it easier for them to stand up. Some countries have requirements concerning the accessibility of public toilets.

The only difference between a Comfort Height toilet (or what is sometimes referred to as a handicapped toilet) and a regular toilet is that a Comfort Height toilet has a higher seat. A Comfort Height Toilet may also have assisted flushing which makes pushing down on the handle easier.

In order for you to determine which type of toilet is right for you, it’s helpful to first understand what your options are. Below you’ll find a quick overview of the different toilet types.

Two-Piece Toilet (aka close coupled toilet)

A two-piece toilet is one of the most common types of toilets found in homes in the USA. It consists of a toilet bowl supported by a floor-mounted pedestal with a separate water tank bolted to the back.

One Piece Toilet

One-piece toilets have a bowl, pedestal, and tank that are all molded together to create one seamless unit.

Comfort Height Toilet (aka Chair Height Toilet, ADA Toilet)

A comfort-height toilet (aka ADA Height Toilet) is a toilet with a higher-than-average toilet seat height of 17-19 inches measured from the floor to the top of the seat. In contrast, most standard toilets have a seat height of 16″ or less.

Floor Standing Back-to-Wall Toilet

A back-to-wall toilet has a floor-mounted toilet bowl and has a water tank that is neatly concealed away inside the wall.
