Portable Restroom Placement

By August 10, 2017Uncategorized

Figuring out where to place porta jons for an event often becomes a tedious ordeal. Many factors play into smart placement of portable restrooms for an event – poor positioning often leads to frustration and complaints from patrons.

When planning the placement of a temporary restroom, first consider the location. Place the restroom on a dry and level area to avoid sinking and tipping problems. Porta potties also need to offer easy access to a truck coming to unload them – plan accordingly.

Here are 5 tips to remember when placing porta potties:

  1. Access Is Everything: Consider the accessibility of your temporary restroom to your patrons. Keeping them centrally located or strategically located along a worksite or event area helps patrons find a porta potty when needed.

  2. Don’t Create Eyesores: Another major factor at play involves the visibility of temporary restrooms – they quickly become eyesores when placed next to major attractions or work spaces. However, hiding porta potties from view makes finding a restroom difficult for patrons. Using signs to clearly indicate out-of-sight bathrooms helps give you the best of both worlds.

  3. Don’t Forget About Wind: Strong winds often catch and tip porta-jons if measures are not taken to prevent mishaps. Placing a temporary restroom against a wall or fence prevents accidents and injuries related to falling.

  4. Consider Event Size: Events expecting large crowd sizes need restrooms set outside of potential congested areas. Keeping long restroom lines and odors away from crowded areas helps improve the flow of congested areas and patron experience.

  5. Try For Convenience, Without Disruption: Place temporary restrooms within walking distance of food vendors, but remember to position them downwind to prevent restroom odors from making their way into concession areas.
