With a season of summer events on the horizon, we’re here to answer your toilet hire questions…
What are the best portable toilets to hire for my event?
The best portable toilet option depends on your guest numbers and requirements and the location of your event.
Whether you’re holding a party, outdoor wedding, sporting tournament or mini festival, we’ve got the right product for you.
Our range of options includes toilet blocks through to solar powered eco-friendly toilet hire.
- Solar Welfare Van – fully mobile and ideal for onsite events crews
Our Welfare Van has a unisex toilet cubicle, with cassette, onboard. The van also contains a full canteen facility, hot water on tap, a sink, and a drying room. Versatile and impressively compact, the van has everything an onsite team needs to take a break and recharge.
A roof mounted solar panel means that all welfare facilities run solely on sustainable free energy.
- Toilet Block Unit – a great option for country weddings or smaller parties
These sturdy anti-vandal toilets are quick and easy to connect to mains drainage or can be fitted to a waste effluent tank – making disposal flexible.
With flushing toilets and hot water hand washing facilities, all units come with lighting and heating.
- Stand Alone Toilet Block – a perfect solution for site sanitation or mini festival
Our sturdy steel Stand Alone Toilet Block is available in a 2:1 or 3:1 configuration (ratio of male to female toilets).
The units include toilets, urinals and basins. Hot water and PIR operated LED lighting is also featured. They are robust and fit for heavy use environments.
The toilets are configured to be suitable for both mains connections or waste and water tanks/ feeds and there’s no need for toilet chemicals.
We also supply eco toilets…
… What is an Eco toilet?
Our eco-friendly portable toilets have roof mounted solar PV panels which convert sunlight into electricity. The electricity is stored in a battery bank which powers the energy saving LED lighting. An efficient LPG gas boiler supplies hot water – on demand – to the taps.
If you’re looking for eco-friendly portable toilet hire, we can offer the following solar powered toilets:
- Solar Loo – Single Cubicle solar-powered toilet
- Solar Loo 2 – Two separate toilet stalls, one with an additional urinal
Both of our Solar Loo toilet facilities are fitted with PIR motion sensors which activate LED lighting – both internally and externally. The motion-activated lights ensure that users’ access and egress is safely lit.
Our Solar Loos are ideal for locations where a mains service connection is not available – anywhere from a rural wedding venue to a summer party or mini festival. They also reduce energy consumption and cost, when compared to regular portable facilities which require diesel generators to be connected.
What are the benefits of Eco toilets?
Our solar-powered toilet units use sustainable, green energy and are up to 96% CO2 efficient. Because they have a reduced fuel consumption, they are better for the environment and are also cheaper to operate.
Each eco-friendly toilet hire unit has a solid steel shell with deadlocks on all doors and includes a fresh water flushing toilet and stainless steel sink.
Our Solar Loos:
- comply with all UK legislation
- are a stand-alone unit with onboard back-up 2.7 kVA generator
- use solar-power, for free clean energy
- are chemical-free micro-flushing toilets
- have LED lighting, activated by PIR sensors
- include hot water handwashing facilities
- include toilet tissue, towel and soap dispensers
- can be heated
