The revamped Matterhorn II portable restroom from Five Peaks Technology, which complies with Americans With Dis-abilities Act regulations, features a 74-gallon holding tank and several conveniences aimed at users and portable operators.

The large holding tank translates into less frequent service calls for operators, says Ryan Harris, an account manager at Five Peaks. "It's hard to determine exactly how much less frequent, because that depends on traffic at an event," he explains. "But it may be one less stop that you have to make along your route because the tank is larger."

The unit, measuring 62 1/2 inches wide, 88 inches long and 90 inches high, and weighing 390 pounds, offers a new feature: a pneumatically controlled door. This prevents the door from slamming quickly behind users, and allows operators to slide over a latch — just
like on a residential screen door — to hold it open during servicing, saving the technician from propping it or having someone hold the door open, Harris says.

Additional new features include steel-reinforced corner extrusions for better durability; powder-coated vinyl wraps around interior handrails for easier cleaning; UV-stabilized, high-density polyethylene sidewalls to improve durability and structural rigidity; and six larger and stronger heavy-duty carrying handles.

Other features include an extended bench for users to transfer from a wheelchair, a 360-degree wheelchair turning radius, vent screens, dual coat hooks and mirrors, a three-roll toilet paper holder, strap guides to help secure the unit for transportation, smooth exterior and interior walls for easier cleaning, and an available 1,000-milliliter hand-sanitizing dispenser.

"One great thing about this unit is that it's ADA-compliant in all 50 states, including California, which has tougher regulations," Harris notes. "More and more states are requiring portable restroom operators to use fully ADA-compliant units." 866/293-1502;
