ADA-compliant portable toilets provide several features that distinguish them from the standard design. They feature an extra-wide door to accommodate wheelchair access, a large interior for maneuverability, and handrails that assist with transfers.
The goal is to provide the most comfortable and accessible portable bathroom experience for those who require ADA supports.
Although this model is typically a little more expensive as a rental, its presence also ensures that your event or jobsite meets the expectations of local codes and compliance standards.
Do I Need to Have ADA-Compliant Portable Toilets?
It is required in Reno (and throughout the United States) to provide an adequate number of bathrooms for people with disabilities. The American Disabilities Act has several regulations regarding the number and location of portable toilets required at different events and venues.
When you select our handicap-supported porta potties, you’ll receive a model that meets or exceeds all the current code requirements necessary to pass inspection.
If you only expect between one to 20 attendees for an event, you will need one ADA-compliant portable toilet for each gender or two per setting if multi-gender. It’s the equivalent to requiring at least one stall in every public bathroom comply with the current guidelines.
That means 5% of your total units should be an ADA-approved rental. You can rest assured that our rentals meet the following regulations.
Families Appreciate the Presence of ADA-Compliant Portable Toilets
When families attend remote events, there aren’t many options that help parents with young children when a bathroom break is needed. The extra space found in our ADA-compliant rentals provide this option.
If you anticipate having several families come to your event, it might be worth considering an investment in this rental option to facilitate their needs.
It is important to remember that an ADA-compliant portable toilet is not the same as a product labeled as being handicap-accessible. The latter option only requires enough room for a wheelchair to make a three-point turn instead of the space for a 360-degree turn, and the doors don’t have to be hinged.
That can make it challenging for some people to close the door for privacy without asking for additional assistance.
You can opt for handicap Porta Potty rentals at private events when ADA compliance isn’t required.
