Installing a Babyminder® changing table provides parents with a safe, convenient and hygienic baby changing facility in away from home locations. The Babyminder® Vertical Baby Changing Station is compact, ultra slim and has heavy duty integral moulded hinges for strength and safety.
Providing baby change facilities is now considered to be of equal importance as the provision of other essential hygiene facilities.
In fact in the USA, outgoing President Obama signed a new bill passed into law on the 7th October 2016 stating that baby changing tables across the USA are to be mandatory in all male and female restrooms in federal buildings.
This is a huge move in the right direction for parents and families alike – more so now than ever before, millennial families are more likely to split childcare jobs and tasks equally down the middle and with more mothers returning to work or indeed being the household breadwinner, more and more male figures are caring for children on a daily basis. Not to mention the wider community of males that care for children, such as grandparents and single sex couples.
Aptly named the Bathrooms Accessible in Every Situation (BABIES) Act, the bill stats that: “male and female restrooms in a public building (are) to be equipped with baby changing facilities that the General Services Administration determines are physically safe, sanitary, and appropriate.”
How Vectair Babyminder® Baby Changing Tables are successfully serving over 100,000 people travelling through Rome Airport every day.
Providing a safe and suitable baby change area for your customers is not child’s play. You don’t have to go very far to read or hear about articles where families have been to public facilities and attempted to change their baby, only to find that the facility’s baby change provision is far less than satisfactory (if satisfactory at all). In addition, online forums such as www.mumsnet.com discuss, among other things, baby changing in public areas – a quick read on here and, pardon the pun, you find yourself ‘crawling’ through posts from irate mothers who are crying out for better provision for baby change facilities and offering their own solutions and innovations to improve their experience.
At Vectair Systems, they like to think that they have got just the solution to this problem, and every parents’ wish (apart from a quiet night’s sleep of course!).
Installing a Babyminder® changing table provides parents with a safe, convenient and hygienic baby changing facility in away from home locations. So whether you’re at a supermarket doing the weekly shop, or at an airport preparing to fly to warmer climates, it makes no difference, your child can be changed safely and hygienically, stress free. The case study below shows just how Babyminder® is just the ticket for suitable baby change facilities at Rome Airport, which is undergoing a new development.
In 2012, Rome airport saw nearly 42 million passengers travelling through its’ doors – over 100,000 travellers every day Once the development is completed, the airport will welcome over 100 million passengers per year.
The problem: A vast number of passengers using the airport travel with children, so it was imperative for Public Procurement and Purchase Manager, Mrs Gloria Apuzzo, to install well equipped baby change facilities. She was particularly looking for a high quality baby change unit that was also cost effective.
The solution: Mrs Apuzzo was introduced to Babyminder® – a baby change table available in both horizontal and vertical versions manufacturer by Vectair Systems. Mrs Apuzzo was impressed with how the units looked in the washroom, compared to other units on the market and decided to install them in the new building.
The Result: Rome airport is still being expanded and Mrs. Serena D’angelo, who is now responsible for Public Procurement and Purchasing, said:
“With a volume of people using our washrooms every day, we were faced with finding a product that is durable, practical and easy to maintain. Babyminder® is all of those things, as well as being aesthetically pleasing!”
NWR Hygiene Group are delighted to be able to offer the Babyminder System to their customers in the UK – ask for a demonstration – you will be pleasantly surprised.
