Koala Kare is the Industry Leader

Over the last 25 years, thousands of business owners have trusted Koala Kare to provide reliable changing equipment. At the same time, countless parents have benefited from Koala’s innovative, safety-focused childcare products.

Great Features & Top Build Quality

Koala Kare products are carefully designed to provide maximum strength and avoid any potential flexing or pinching. The following features highlight Koala’s commitment to innovation:

  • Unibody Steel Chassis offers superior durability and support.
  • Child Protection Straps help secure children and avoid falls from the bed surface.
  • Polypropylene Plastics with Microban are sturdy and easy to sanitize. Microban protection safely reduces odor-causing bacteria.
  • Liner Dispensers with Locks are convenient for caregivers and help prevent vandalism and theft.
  • Recycled Material Content contributes to LEED-certified building requirements.
  • Gas Spring Opening Mechanism smooths opening and closing.
  • Concealed Hinges reduce the risk of pinching and soiling of a hard-to-clean area.
  • Steel-on-Steel Hinges increase strength and minimize mechanical wear.

Please note that not all Koala Kare units include all the features mentioned above. Consult our specific product pages for complete, model-specific lists of options.

Material & Finish Options

Koala Kare products constructed from high-density polyethylene include Microban antibacterial protection within the plastic. This additive safely reduces odor-causing bacteria. Products made from polyethylene are available in a range of colors, including gray, gray granite, sandstone, cream, white granite, and earth. Stations in brushed stainless steel are also available for design-oriented spaces. Koala offers units with stainless veneers and complete stainless clad exteriors. Matching a Koala Kare changing station to your bathroom’s decor will not be a problem. Models are available to suit every style space, be it modern or traditional.

Choose between horizontal or vertical folding operation, depending on available bathroom space. Units supporting both recessed and surface-mounted installation are available. While recessed baby stations require more time to install, they result in a more refined, finished appearance. Surface-mounted units set up quickly and easily. Even small-sized bathroom projects with tight timelines can include a convenient Koala Kare unit.

Basic Installation & ADA Mounting Height

Many Koala Kare products are designed to install conveniently in restrooms built with studs 16 centers. For installation in masonry or tile over a stud wall, use a masonry drill bit for a pilot hole. In buildings with metal studs, concrete blocks, or non-standard construction, one side of the unit will need to be secured using toggles. Make sure toggles are capable of supporting the changing station and its maximum load. Follow the toggle manufacturer’s installation to ensure safety.

All Koala Kare products meet ADA requirements when properly installed. According to the “Planning Guide for Accessible Restrooms” (PDF), published by Bobrick (Koala Kare’s parent company), “to allow use by people with limited reach range, it is required that accessories be mounted with their “operable parts” – dispensing mechanisms, start buttons, coin slots, or dispenser openings – located no more than 48 inches (1220mm) above the finish floor.” Given this, the handle used to open the baby changing station must be no more than 48 inches from the floor. The opened unit must not require lifting the baby more than 34 inches off the floor to place it on the bed. Your Koala Kare product’s installation instructions will include specific directions regarding where to drill/mount to comply with the ADA. Note that the planning guide mentioned references 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.

Meet Parent Expectations, Delight Clientele

In this age, parents expect bathroom facilities to include changing stations. Installing Koala Kare baby changing products will not only meet parent expectations but exceed them. Safe design and robust construction are evident across the product line, even to those unfamiliar with building materials and washroom accessories. Convenient features and smooth operation have contributed to Koala Kare’s leadership in the childcare equipment market.

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your facility’s stations will make sure parents and general clientele remain pleased with accommodations.

Routine Maintenance

Regular cleaning and maintenance of Koala Kare items is simple.

Begin by inspecting the exterior of the closed unit for any damage or loose parts. Spray the handle and the area surrounding with high-quality disinfectant (allowing it to evaporate). Next, inspect the hinge and gas spring shock. Make sure the hinge is secure and operates smoothly. If the changing station opens too quickly, or the door drops when released, the shock may need replacement. With the unit open, check that the buckling strap operates as designed and is free from wear. Continue by scrubbing the bed area with a mild detergent, followed by a high-quality disinfectant. Before closing the unit, make sure that the warning label is complete and not worn. Finish the cleaning and maintenance process by cleaning the exterior, as needed, and disinfecting it.

Contact your facilities maintenance personnel if any installation issues or malfunctions of the unit itself are detected.
