When you host an event, you want to make sure that all of your guests are being cared for and this includes those with disabilities. In order to fully enjoy the event you’ve worked so hard on, individuals with disabilities will need adapted facilities (such as wheelchair accessible porta potties). We’re sure that you want to provide each of your guests with the best facilities possible, that’s why we offer wheelchair accessible porta potty rentals and accessibility packages. We want each and every one of your guests to feel welcome and cared for while at your special event.
When it comes to the matter of how many wheelchair accessible porta potties you need… There’s the number that you think you need and there’s the number that you’re required to provide. The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, which was passed in 1990, outlines specific instructions for providing facilities for Americans with disabilities.
If your event requires portable restrooms, you have to consider ADA regulations when ordering. It is recommended that you provide one wheelchair accessible portable restroom for every 10 regular portable restrooms required. These restrooms also shouldn’t be placed anywhere that requires the users to step up on a curb or any other inaccessible location. For a quick estimate of the number of accessible portable restrooms you need for your event, check out our portable restroom calculator. It can easily estimate how many restrooms you need according to how many people you estimate will attend your event.
Also, if you have rented luxury restroom trailers for public use, you must order an ADA compliant restroom trailer, because you must provide equal access to all services offered. You can’t simply get a wheelchair accessible portable restroom to be placed near the restroom trailer for all public events.
For other resources such as parking spaces, team prep, and all other aspects of your event check out our blog on ADA regulations for special events.
On Site Companies portable restroom calculator
The On Site Companies portable restroom calculator is intended to be a tool to help estimate the number of portable restrooms your event will need. We take things into account like the length of the event, if alcohol is served, and whether there are more females than males attending.
This is meant to be only a tool to help estimate the number of portable restrooms that you should rent. Your On Site customer service representative will be able to assist you further with deciding the exact amount of restrooms that is appropriate for your event.
If your calculation is between one and two restrooms, you may want to consider one of our Instant Party Packages. These packages contain a range of portable restrooms, hand washing stations, and cardboard trash boxes save you hassle and money.
