Event planners are responsible for practically every aspect of any successful event, including restroom arrangements. During any Houston outdoor event, you’ll need to ensure every guest has adequate access to facilities, especially those with disabilities or families with small children.
When you’re planning the next big event on your calendar, consider renting a handicap portable toilet to ensure the needs of every guest are met.
Why You Need a Handicap Portable Toilet
Handicapped accessible restroom facilities are designed to provide hygienic facilities to your guests with disabilities. They typically have wide doors, a spacious interior, and flat floors for easy wheelchair access. Their design allows wheelchairs to move about, including turning 360 degrees.
Some units include sturdy grab bars mounted on the interior walls, providing extra assistance to guests. Additional safety is provided because they have anti-slip floors and stabilizing stakes.
Other features of handicapped portable restrooms include the following:
- Non-flushing toilet and urinal
- Rolls of toilet paper
- Occupancy indicator
- Hand sanitizer
- Hasp, lock, and key
- Containment tray
- Hinged or magnetic doors for easy closure
- An external placard indicating it is wheelchair accessible
Handicapped accessible toilets allow natural lighting into the interior and have adequate ventilation, preventing the absorption of any odors and making them perfect for any outdoor event.
Advantages of a Handicap Toilet at Your Event
Although you may not know exactly how many guests with disabilities or families with small children will participate in your event, it’s always best to be prepared. Here are several advantages of renting a portable toilet to serve all guests.
Providing a handicapped portable toilet for your guests allows disabled participants to have a designated facility that suits their needs. The design allows your guests to feel comfortable using the ramps and railings if they have mobility issues or use a wheelchair.
2. Reduces Tripping Hazards
A handicap-accessible toilet rental has ground-level access, making it easier to enter and exit the facility. Furthermore, children that use the unit with their family are less likely to fall when leaving the facility because there are fewer obstacles to trip over.
3. Family Friendly
Handicapped portable toilet rentals have a large interior, making them ideal for parents that need to change an infant or toddler. This feature is especially helpful for parents who may be potty training their toddlers. Any parent attending your event will be grateful you provided a large, accessible toilet.
How Many Accessible Restrooms Should You Rent?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) set the standard for providing disabled Americans with adequate facilities. The standard recommendation for wheelchair-accessible portable restrooms is one for every ten regular portable toilets required for your event.
At Texas Outhouse, our team of experts can help you determine the appropriate number of ADA-compliant restroom units to rent for your event. We’ll also help you determine where to place each unit.
