A RADAR Disabled Toilet Key is a large, silver-coloured skeleton key that opens more than 10,000 locked, disabled toilets in the UK. Sometimes called an NKS Key,the RADAR disabled toilet key is part of the National Key Scheme (NKS). It gives thousands of people with disabilities and health conditions independent access to locked public toilets around the country. The Radar Key Scheme enables these disabled toilets to be locked to prevent vandalism and misuse. However, they’re still readily available to those who really need them.
Radar toilets have been around since 1981 when the first one was opened. Now, over 400 local authorities in all parts of the country have adopted the scheme. These include many shopping centres, pubs, cafés, department stores, country parks, railway and bus stations. Find them in airports, motorway service areas and sports venues! You can now find toilets fitted with the RADAR key lock across the UK from Shetland to Dover!
Disabled people’s toilets have wide entrances and disability symbols on the door. Unlike regular public toilets, disabled toilets are often locked and previously they were only available for use on request. The Radar key scheme ensures that people who need to use accessible toilets don’t have to ask someone else to open the door for them before they can have a wee! Because disabled people’s toilets are big, private and less likely to be occupied, they are open to misuse by the general public. The Radar Key Scheme enables these disabled toilets to be locked, to prevent vandalism and misuse.
