Design Considerations for Temporary Sanitation Facilities for events

  • Optimal configurations for different event sizes and types, ensuring efficient flow and minimal waiting times. For example, arranging the containers in a centralized location to facilitate easy access for attendees while maintaining a clean and organized appearance.

  • Design considerations to ensure accessibility for all attendees, including those with disabilities. This includes ramps, wider doorways, and ADA-compliant fixtures to accommodate diverse needs.

Environmental Considerations

  • Incorporating water-saving fixtures such as low-flow toilets and faucets to minimize water usage during the event. Additionally, utilizing renewable energy sources like solar panels to power lighting and ventilation systems, reducing the environmental footprint.

Regulatory Compliance

  • Ensuring compliance with local regulations and health standards for temporary sanitation facilities. This includes regular maintenance and cleaning procedures to uphold hygiene levels and prevent potential health risks for attendees.


Shipping container ablution blocks offer a cost-effective, sustainable, and practical solution for setting up temporary sanitation facilities at events throughout Gauteng. By leveraging their mobility, durability, and customizability, event organizers can ensure a seamless experience for attendees while meeting environmental and regulatory requirements.
