Have you ever used a toilet in the dark? What was the experience like if you handled your business with no ray of light? It might have been a more challenging experience if you had used a public toilet. Due to familiarity, you could quickly figure out the location of things for private or home washrooms.
Most standard portable toilet units do not have an in-built lighting system. Some providers can supply you with battery-powered lights at an extra cost, usually attached to one of the toilet walls. In most cases, you would not require this battery-powered light if the unit is built with a Translucent roof. Let’s explore some key elements of Translucent roofs and look at their benefits in a mobile toilet setting.
Translucent roofs are made up of a structural system with the presence of voids that are filled with a substance that allows light to travel through the top. The roof is not transparent but only permits light from natural or artificial sources.
The makeup of translucent roofs
These roofs are designed and built with profiled, hardened polyvinyl chloride sheets. These rigid sheets can be used in temperatures of -20c to +60c. This is due to the polyvinyl chloride constituents that ensure the roof’s robustness but are still porous enough to admit light from various sources.
The benefits of Translucent roofs
to ensure a user gains complete visibility as they handle their business. On the other hand, portable toilets can also be placed close to a floodlight to ensure the unit is lit. What then are the benefits of translucent roofs in a mobile unit?
1) the presence of natural light: Portable toilets may not benefit from the common windows found in standard toilets. The chances of natural light are slim as these units are well enclosed. With a translucent roof, natural light is given an excellent opportunity to show up and spread its numerous benefits like the release of vitamin D. This vitamin helps us to be more focused, happy, and sleep better.
2) The maximisation of visibility: Translucent roofs are sky-facing and positioned to allow as much natural light as possible. When using units equipped with this feature, you can easily find your way around the facility due to the adequate lighting. Your overall toilet experience can be enhanced by the visibility existing in the facility.
3) Warmth in the toilet unit: Using public facilities may be challenging for some people, and every element of warmth and comfort can ease their worries. The natural light that finds its way through the roof can be soothing and bring warmth to the user. It could make you feel more at ease using the toilet unit during a peak period at a festival or race event.
4) Creates some spark of creativity: have you struggled to continue writing your novel or working on the artwork? Maybe a writer’s block or a creative wall? We could find creative inspiration from a variety of places. An unpopular or perhaps overlooked source is a portable toilet with a translucent roof. Natural light could be responsible for stirring up our creativity and providing the needed boost for the proposed assignment or masterpiece.
