MONOPAN® manufacturer chooses SANIBEST PRO® as accessible solution
Case Studies 01/04/2019
When MonoPan CA Inc. needed an accessible solution to design new barrier-free, portable washroom facilities for construction sites, city events, and a variety of other applications, the company chose an above-floor macerating system from SANIFLO®, saving labour and material costs.
Develop MonoPan portable washroom units that are barrier-free/wheelchair accessible using SANIBEST PRO® system.
“In our previous washroom designs, we had to place tanks under the floor, which worked well but presented some difficulty in manufacturing and maintenance,” says Frank, MonoPan CA Inc. “By using the Sanibest Pro, we can place waste tanks at floor level in the back of the units, making them easier to manufacture and maintain; and, by doing so, have significantly lowered the height of our units.” Reducing the height from the ground to the bottom of the door is very important for wheelchair access and allows for the installation of an access ramp at the recommended 10-degree slope.
For Frank and his company, this has meant cost-savings in both manufacturing time and material expenditures. Not only is the Sanibest Pro easy to install, it is equipped with a service panel atop the unit which allows for quick and easy maintenance.
Barrier-free washrooms are designed to enhance accessibility and comfort for people with physical limitations or disabilities. Businesses are under increasing pressure to comply with codes, regulations and standards with respect to the design and manufacturing of barrier-free washroom facilities.
“Our elongated style of vitreous china, rear-discharge toilet bowl and tank has a seating height of 16 and ¾ inches, making it ADA compliant to assist people with sitting and standing up,” says Ross Evans, National Sales Manager for SANIFLO Canada. “The Sanibest Pro and elongated toilet work together as a complete system, and make a great solution for this type of washroom application,” adds Evans.
The Sanibest Pro is designed to be easily installed on top of any finished surface, eliminating the need for below-floor installation. While most of SANIFLO’s pump range is shredders/macerators, the Sanibest Pro incorporates an actual grinder system, making it ideal for heavyuse situations in which you do not control the use of it. The system uses minimal amounts of water and can handle the effluent from both the toilet and a sink connection
“Not much else is suitable for our application or available on the market,” continues Frank. “Our portable washroom facilities are unique in both function and appearance and SANIFLO has helped to enhance this. The units we’ve sold so far have been well received by our customers.”
