P-Pod is one of the newer portable bathroom manufacturers that specializes in innovative, collapsible design. Unlike traditional portable toilets that promote durability via their solid structures, P-Pod specializes in convenience through the ability to collapse and expand their products.
P-Pods are portable restrooms that can be folded down into a box sized at 36 inches. Through their collapsibility, P-Pod excels when it comes to convenience when transporting and storing portable restrooms. Because they can collapse to such a small size, they can be kept safe from natural elements, accessible on the road, and ideal for deployments, emergencies, and natural disaster relief where it’s design allows more portable restrooms to be transported in place of traditional standard portable restrooms. Compared to a standard-sized portable restroom, a P-Pod takes up a third of its size.
Unlike other manufacturers, because a P-Pod was made to be collapsible, it does not come with nor are they created with additional parts in mind. However, P-Pods can be used with sealed, removable waste tanks to make clean-up fast and easy. That way, you don’t need a vacuum truck or do you need to travel with waste.
P-Pod, designed by Advantage Engineering Inc., are based in Oldcastle, Ontario, CA, and distributed in the US by allsafetyproducts.com.
For their portable toilets, ARMAL Manufacturers two lines of portable toilets and foods: the CUBE line and the WAVE line.
The CUBE line, manufactured for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, specializes in safety, ease of management, and detailed design. Among the CUBE line are 10 different portable toilets, with some distinguishable features such as different types of toilets, different materials to improve durability and resistance in various areas, plumbing options, a unit designed for less contact (ideal for female use), larger spaces for improved accessibility, smaller sizes for portability, and removable or attached parts. Amongst the CUBE line they also have a portable changing room, a portable shower, and an AquaStand hand washing station, which can be attached together to create a more equipped CUBE or 2-3 CUBE units attached together for a better restroom experience in one location.
The WAVE line, manufactured for North America, South America, Asia, and Oceania, specializes in innovative design and quality. The WAVE line has 5 portable toilets with ranging differences such as different toilets (squatting toilets and standard sit down toilets), plumbing options, larger spaces for improved accessibility, and usage of different materials to promote sanitation, durability, security, and overall design. Unlike the CUBE line, the WAVE line has fewer portable toilets because the various features are condensed to fewer models, rather than multiple models for each feature. Additional products in the WAVE line include a portable changing room and a portable shower.
Outside of the CUBE and WAVE line is the E-Top toilet, an electronic portable toilet that has fully automated flush, sink with an electronic control panel, and an indoor presence detector.
