Most businesses, childcare centers and public buildings have baby changing stations in the restrooms. Changing tables provide a safe and hygienic location to attend to the needs of young children. With so many available options, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your business.
Affordable Changing Table Units
For budget-minded businesses, the Safety Craft starts at just $129 and is a very popular choice. The Safety Craft can be purchased as a horizontal model or as a vertical model. This baby changing station may be one of the least expensive models available, but it is very durable and meets or exceeds the highest ADA, ANSI and ASTM standards. The Safety Craft is made of high-density polyethylene with a steel inner frame. There are two built-in dual liner dispensers that hold a total of 100 sanitary liners. There is also a hygienic bacteria-resistant nylon safety belt. The EZ mount plate is purchased separately.
The Koala Kare KB200 baby changing station is also an affordable option. Unlike the Safety Craft, the KB200 is constructed of bacteria-resistant polyethylene. The bed surface is embeded with Microban antimicrobial technology, reducing odor and bacteria. This model has a unibody steel chassis that can support 200 pounds with minimal deflection. For businesses seeking LEED certification, the KB200 is made of 16% recycled materials. This changing table also comes in a model clad with 304 stainless steel, the Koala Kare KB200-SS. This popular option has all of the durability and safety of the original KB200 in a trendy stainless steel finish that easily blends in with other stainless steel restroom fixtures.
While the KB200 and KB200-SS are horizontal units, those preferring a vertical unit may like the Koala Kare KB101 Vertical Baby Changing Station. The KB101 is constructed of high-density polyethylene with steel on steel hinges. The surface is made with Microban technology for safety and hygiene. This changing station is made with 46% recycled materials, making it a great choice for LEED certified buildings.
For business owners who wish to add a unique touch to their family-friendly restrooms, the Koala Kare KB208 is a great choice. Instead of mirroring the rectangular shape of other changing models, the KB208 offers a stylish oval shape. This model is also priced like the KB200 and KB101 and is a popular choice. Like other Koala Kare changing station models, the KB208 is constructed of polyethylene with steel reinforcement and nylon child protection straps. This model is available in cream, grey and white granite to match any decor.
Stainless Steel Changing Table Units
The Koala Kare KB110-SSRE Stainless Steel Baby Changing Station is the perfect option for sleek, upscale businesses. This stylish stainless steel unit is recessed into the wall, making it discrete and space-saving. This model is a great choice for new businesses or for buildings where the restrooms are being remodeled as it does need to be installed as a recessed unit. The interior of this unit is made with polyethylene. The exterior is stainless steel with steel on steel hinges and an internal gas spring mechanism. It is ADA accessible and made of 56% recycled materials.
For the high-end restroom that doesn't need to be remodeled, the Koala Kare KB110-SSWM is a great choice. This model has all of the stylish and functional features of the KB110-SSRE but can be mounted on the wall's surface rather than requiring a recessed installation. This changing station mounts horizontally and when folded, it lies flat against the wall. It is 50 pounds and when properly installed meets all ADA accessibility guidelines.
The ultimate in durable baby changing stations is the Brocar 100-SSV-R. The Brocar 100-SSV-R is a full stainless steel changing table. It is installed vertically and recessed into the restroom wall. For hygienic purposes, a replaceable high-hygiene polyethylene tray included. There are also cushioned safety corners. This beautiful model is extremely durable and the stainless steel surface blends in with many high-end stainless steel restroom fixtures.
The Brocar models also come in several other installation choices. The Brocar 100-SS-SM is a horizontal unit that can be mounted on the wall's surface. The Brocar 100-SSC-R is a recessed unit that can be mounted horizontally. Finally, the Brocar 100-SSV-SM is a vertical unit that can be mounted on the wall's surface rather than as a recessed unit.
Special Needs and Adult Changing Table Units
Nursing homes, hospitals and schools for individuals with special needs often require changing table units that can support a full-grown adult. The Brocar 100-SSE-R is the only choice for facilities that require a changing table unit that supports an adult. This extended length changing station supports up to 400 pounds and can hold a person up to 62 inches tall.

The 100-SSE-R is constructed of heavy-duty 304 brushed stainless steel with dual pneumatic gas springs. The Brocar 100-SSE-SM has all of the features of the 100-SSE-R, but can be mounted on the wall's surface. Like the recessed model, this special needs changing unit is ADA and ANSI compliant. This model protrudes only 4” from the wall when closed making it a discreet and stylish choice.
