Let's just get this out of the way: you probably don't want to spend much time thinking about your event's restroom facilities. Portable restrooms are never the first thing on anyone's mind, but they're an essential and often underappreciated element of event planning. Failing to handle this aspect of your event adequately can lead to unhappy guests and potentially unsanitary conditions.
While many planners opt for basic restroom stalls, there are plenty of advantages to upgrading to more luxurious units. If you're looking for a way to take your event to the next level, consider these three reasons an air-conditioned trailer might be just what you need.
1. Weather Resilient
Summer heat can be great fun, but many recent heatwaves have taken the weather from enjoyable warm to dangerously hot. The interior of a standard plastic portable toilet can heat up significantly in the sun, even with vents and other features designed to keep them cool. If you expect to operate in extreme heat, you'll usually need to take special precautions, such as locating restrooms in the shade.
With an air-conditioned trailer, your event will be more resilient to unexpected changes in the weather. Although shady locations are still helpful to reduce cooling costs, you won't need to worry about your restrooms turning into saunas. Guests may also be more comfortable coming to an event on a hot day when they know air-conditioned restrooms are available.
2. Improved Sanitary Conditions
If your event serves food, then regular portable restroom units may not cut it. Although you can usually rent hand sanitizing upgrades for these units, larger trailers typically include full-size sinks with water supplies. These facilities allow your guests and event workers to stay clean, reducing sanitation concerns when serving food or drink.
You can expect the trailers themselves to be more sanitary than a typical portable restroom stall, as well, in part due to superior ventilation. Since the air conditioning system cycles and filters air, you don't have to worry about stagnant, smelly interiors after a day of use.
3. Easier Access in All Conditions
Since air-conditioned trailers require access to power, they also have amenities such as interior lighting. If your event is continuing into the evening, this can make your restrooms more accessible for your guests regardless of the conditions. You also will not need to spend as much time and effort setting up external lighting around your toilet area.
If you're hosting an event during the summer, portable restroom trailers are one of the best upgrades you can make to improve comfort and hygiene for your guests and workers. Although your guests probably won't rave to their friends about the restroom facilities, they will remember that you went the extra mile to keep them cool and comfortable.
