Portaloo Changing Facility

Portaloo, part of the Portakabin Group, has launched a specially designed sports changing facility, which can be operational just 24 hours after delivery, and supplied for interim or permanent use with the minimum disruption. 

The new, well equipped modular changing rooms can be used for both team and individual sports, giving players an exceptional standard of amenities in a spacious building.   Designed in accordance with Sport England guidelines and available to buy or hire, each 117sqm building provides two large communal changing areas with bench seating, and individual showers and toilet cubicles for use by different teams or male and female players.

Applications include schools, colleges and universities; sports grounds, parks and leisure centres; and for community use or professional sports clubs and associations for short or long-term hire as well as permanent situations.  

The Portaloo building is designed to be robust, durable and easy-to-clean, and to discourage vandalism both internally and externally.  Toilet cisterns and plumbing are concealed and sensors operate toilets, urinals and washbasins so there are no visible moving parts. 

For additional safety and security, there is emergency lighting throughout.  

Other features of the new modular sports changing rooms include: 

  • Energy efficiency - PIR control lighting, push button-operated showers, and on-demand gas powered hot water option for reduced energy consumption and running costs
  • Fire resistance - fully galvanised steel beams and floor joists, insulated for protection against spread of fire
  • Easy-to-clean - wipe clean finishes; high impact resistant ceilings, walls, partitions and doors, and wall mounted slatted benching with no dirt traps
  • Individual shower pods - 900mm wide moulded and sealed cubicles with self-closing privacy doors to contain water, no shower curtains requiring maintenance and an integral changing area and seat  
  • Highly durable fixtures and fittings - vandal-resistant features, coat hooks, and composite panel doors which reduce heat loss and contribute to lower running costs
  • Safety flooring with slip-resistant surfaces.                                        

The new Portaloo changing room building also features economical gas-powered showers, which provide a constant supply of temperature-regulated hot water.  

Commenting on the new facility, Mark Fielding, Business Manager at Portaloo said, "As with all our buildings, the sports changing facility can be delivered to the most challenging timescales, with less disruption and less impact on the environment - and with no compromise on the quality of the accommodation. It features many inherent benefits such as space, proportion, robustness and ease of maintenance and we believe it is an excellent and highly flexible solution for a wide range of organisations who have a requirement for permanent or interim changing rooms."

Each building purchased is supplied with the reassurance of the pioneering Portakabin 5-year product warranty covering the external fabric and 30-year structural warranty for the load-bearing elements, as standard. 

Portaloo has been manufacturing high quality toilets and shower rooms for nearly five decades, providing domestic-standard toilets, showers and changing rooms to the strictest hygiene standards, on programme and on budget.
