New washroom facilities from Portaloo delight pupils

Pupils at Gordon Primary School on Earshall Road, London, are enjoying colourful new surroundings as part of their school day with the introduction of the unique Portaloo Junior toilet building.

As part of the school refurbishment programme, Lakehouse Contracts Ltd of Romford, the company responsible for the project, had to provide interim washroom facilities for the junior school pupils.

After meeting with several providers of portable toilet facilities, the Lakehouse Contracts team decided that the Portaloo Junior toilet building – which has been specifically designed by Portaloo* for use by Key Stage 1 and 2 primary school children – was the best facility to meet the needs of the school and its pupils.

It has many unique features, including bright, contrasting colours and child height mirrors and wash basins. It is also the only toilet building on the market designed specifically for schoolchildren, all of which provides users with complete peace of mind that the facilities will offer the highest levels of comfort and quality.

Martin Coupe, Senior Contracts Manager at Lakehouse Contracts, said: ‘We were very impressed with the quality and design features of the Portaloo Junior toilet building. It was very important to the headteacher at the school that the interim facilities we provided during the refurbishment programme were as good, if not better, than the permanent facilities that the children had been using.

‘The Portaloo Junior building has certainly provided this and everyone, pupils, teachers and contractors alike, have been very pleased with the high level of service and quality facilities we have received.’

Developed in response to increasing customer demand, the toilet block can provide facilities for up to 80 pupils. It provides separate boys and girls toilets or can be used as a single sex block.

The unique building was designed in conjunction with The Education (School Premises) Regulations 1999, which includes guidelines on ‘Washrooms for Pupils’. It also has an all-steel construction, which provides maximum durability, comfort and easy maintenance.

Other features include:
·Finger guards on the external and internal doors
·Bright, contrasting colours for all internal furnishings
·Scalloped cubicle doors, which allow teacher supervision whilst maintaining privacy
·Child-height mirrors and washbasins
·Concealed central storage cupboard, which houses all the pipework and cisterns to reduce the risk of accidental damage or vandalism and provides ease of maintenance
·Low-level urinals, pedestals and wash basins
·A thermostatically-controlled water supply to ensure consistent water temperature and prevent scalding
·A high capacity 50-litre storage tank, providing a plentiful supply of hot water
·High-level heaters for maximum comfort and child safety
·Vanity units with recessed washbasins enhance the appearance, whilst also concealing plumbing, therefore minimising the risk of damage.
