Sloan Deploys Mobile Restrooms to Support Communities in Need
Sloan, the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has developed fully-equipped Mobile Restrooms to support communities affected by natural disasters, emergencies, and other catastrophic incidents like the COVID-19 pandemic.
The deluxe restrooms combine comfortable and customizable hardware with easy-to-maintain design to deliver guests with a hygienic, clean, and welcoming experience. Sloan’s Mobile Restrooms are designed for universal accessibility, with each unit split into men’s and women’s areas featuring ADA-compliant modifications.
“Portable restrooms often come along with the stigma of being unsanitary and uncomfortable,” said Parthiv Amin, Sloan’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “Sloan’s new Mobile Restrooms offer first responders, healthcare facilities, FEMA workers in natural disaster recovery areas, and communities in need with a restroom environment that is clean, comfortable, safe, and hygienic.”
The restrooms are outfitted with Sloan vitreous china floor-mounted pressure-assisted water closets and vitreous china water-free urinals (in the men’s unit only), along with vitreous china drop-in lavatories, Optima® faucets, and Sloan deck-mounted foam soap dispensers. All water closets are powered by Flushmate technology for energy-efficient, single flush performance.
Sloan’s Mobile Restroom recently traveled to Denver, Colo., as the local Catholic Charities chapter had lost access to a shelter that served the area’s homeless population with restrooms and handwashing facilities.
“In the midst of frantic searching for alternative resources, a colleague in Denver alerted us to an opportunity for a mobile restroom unit from Sloan, which we gratefully accepted,” said Joe Domko, Regional Director Larimer County, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver. “Sloan’s team was gracious, accommodating, kind, and quickly delivered an immaculate mobile restroom to support our most vulnerable and marginalized citizens. This, to us, is the very definition of charity and solidarity.”
Sloan is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, the company is at the forefront of the green building movement and provides sustainable restroom solutions by manufacturing water-efficient products such as flush valves, electronic faucets, and soap dispensing systems, sink systems and vitreous china fixtures for commercial, industrial and institutional markets worldwide.
