Portable toilet hire for an office refurbishment

18 July 2022

It’s time to refurbish the washroom facilities in your offices but the thought of all the disruption while trying to keep the office fully functional is overwhelming. Our guide to portable toilet hire in the workplace will put your mind at rest.

A common concern for facilities managers is how to keep operations running while refurbishing the toilet facilities in a work environment, with the minimum of disruption to employees, and customers or clients. The ideal solution is to provide the equivalent standard of toilet and washroom amenities to staff and clients in the form of luxury toilet hire.

The benefits of luxury portable toilet hire during refurbishments

Valuing your staff by investing in temporary portable toilet hire will boost morale during what can be a difficult time, and help to maintain levels of productivity.

If your business is public facing and involves clients visiting the office, a luxury portable toilet unit will show visitors that your business continues to function as normal, without the need to turn visitors away.

Portable toilet hire may be the difference between your organisation continuing to operate throughout the period of refurbishment, or having to suspend business for the duration.

Whether your stakeholders are customers, patients or pupils/parents, all will benefit from the continuity of service that will be possible by keeping businesses operational.

What are the different types of portable toilets?

At Fortis Hire, we have a wide choice of luxury toilet trailers for hire, as well as standard portable toilets for hire, with units to suit every type and size of business.

Luxury toilet hire

Our luxury toilet units will cater for fewer than 100 users, up to 450 and all feature a high end, hotel quality interior, and are stocked with indulgent consumables. The integral hot water system means that all our units will continue to function when the time comes for your mains water supply to be interrupted. All units can be supplied with generator hire if required, and all but the smallest 1 Plus 1 Toilet unit, feature heaters for the colder seasons. Luxury toilet units feature separate cubicles for ladies and men, with urinals, but our Luxury 6 Bay Toilet unit has six gender neutral cubicles and the Luxury 8 Bay Toilet can be easily converted into a standalone unit for ladies or men, by means of a central door between the sections. For organisations with a higher proportion of males, the Luxury Urinal is a great way to keep cubicles available for ladies. To ensure your business continues to comply with the Health and Safety Executive’s requirements, the Luxury Disabled Toilet is a perfect solution.

Do I need to provide toilets for the builders?

HSE guidelines advise that there should be one portable toilet for every 7 builders working a 40-hour week. Of course, you and your workforce may be happy for the builders to share facilities, but from a dust, dirt and debris point of view, it may be easier and kinder to your workforce to provide separate units.

Standard portable toilet hire

Our single occupancy Plastic Portable Toilet is tough and hardwearing and more than able to withstand the rigours of a building site. The foot operated flush system and basin reduces manual contact with interior surfaces to a minimum and the fully contained unit does not require mains power, enabling it to be sited more remotely.

Why use Fortis Hire for portable toilet hire?

We will work with you to keep any disruption to your normal working day to an absolute minimum – if that means arranging delivery, installation and removal of the units outside of traditional working hours, we are happy to accommodate you wherever possible. For longer hire periods, we will replenish consumables when necessary and all customers have access to our 24-hour telephone support line. Our luxury fleet comprises no units older than three years and we have an experienced and specialist team with strong industry  backgrounds.
