When you expect people with disabilities to attend an event or be at a remote jobsite, you could be required to supply an adequate portable toilet to meet their unique physical needs.
Working with our Los Angeles team means that you have a partner that delivers the most comfortable and accessible portable bathroom experience for those who require ADA supports.
Two options are available in our industry when supporting the relief needs of people with disabilities. You can select a handicap porta potty or an ADA-compliant portable toilet.
The Americans with Disabilities Act provides strict requirements that must be met, including transfers and space to move, which are especially important at job sites, government offices, and similar locations.
ADA-compliant models are typically a little more expensive to rent. Still, they also provide that extra level of care and consideration that can make the experience outstanding for those you serve.
Am I Required to Have ADA-Complaint Portable Toilets?
It is required in Los Angeles County to provide an adequate number of restroom facilities for individuals with disabilities.
The American Disabilities Act has several rules and regulations to follow regarding the number and location of portable toilets required at different events and venues.
When you have a small, private event, it often helps to have one handicap porta potty for every 20 guests. Although this unit isn’t as large as an ADA-compliant design, there is still enough room for someone in a wheelchair to use a three-point turn while maintaining their privacy.
If you need portable toilets and facilities at a remote jobsite, you might be required to maintain a specific number of ADA-compliant units. Our products meet or exceed the current published regulations so that you can be confident that your investment complies with each rule.
Here are the current ADA guidelines for portable toilets to consider.
How Can We Serve Your Needs Today?
The space in handicap porta potties and ADA-compliant portable toilets helps people with disabilities, families with young children, and other guests with movement troubles.
It’s important to remember an ADA-compliant portable toilet is not the same as a product labeled as being handicap-accessible. The latter has less space inside, which means it won’t meet some city, county, state, or national requirements for some businesses.
The goal should be to provide a unit that allows each person to have the privacy they need to use the bathroom at their discretion. If you’re unsure about what your needs are with these designs, please reach out and talk with one of our representatives at your convenience to get the answers you need.
