N&C Phlexicare RADAR Key Scheme The Disability Rights People (formerly RADAR) promotes a U.K. national scheme, whereby locks specially manufactured are ?tted to toilets and can only be operated using a RADAR key. These keys are available to disabled or registered blind people to enable them to access the facilities. This aims to give protection against vandalism or misuse, so that a clean functional toilet is available.
After its launch in 1981 several local authorities introduced the scheme for toilets that had previously been unlocked by others simply changed the locks or used it for new toilets. Each year RADAR publishes a directory of accessible toilets for disabled people that are fitted with the RADAR lock. By the mid 80’s the directory included details of over 300 toilets provided by almost 350 local authorities and a wide variety of other organisations in all parts of the UK.
The current directory includes details of toilets approaching 10,000 in number in all parts of the country with tens of thousands of keys in circulation. Local disability organisations and local authorities have also become directly involved in RADAR key distribution. It should be remembered that the RADAR lock system is rudimentary and not designed as or intended for use as a high security locking system.
