DBO Commode

Where existing commodes, with multiple components, are difficult and time-consuming to clean, the award-winning Kirton DBO Commode has a simplified construction to make cleaning quicker and easier.

The commode is split into two parts, a polypropylene shell and a stainless steel frame capable of supporting a 30 stone (190kg) weight limit. Separating the parts in this way makes the commode a cost effective solution as individual components can be replaced as necessary without the need to purchase an entire new commode. The shell is 100% polypropylene, which best survives chorine-based bleaches and the frame, which comes with a 5 year warranty, is polished stainless steel, so there are no secondary coatings to scratch and become a harbour for germs.

The lid has an important role in preserving the dignity of the user both before and after using the commode. It is often easier and safer to replace the lid after use and wheel the entire chair to the sluice room to be emptied and cleaned rather than removing the commode pan at the user’s bedside.This helps to contain any harmful bacteria and reduces the risk of spillages.The lid has two indents for hygienic removal and has been designed to snap onto the tube frame when not in use so as not to be lost or placed on the floor to gather bacteria.
