Here at PRT, we have made it a priority to build a wide variety of options for every industry. This is especially necessary for those who are in the market for luxury restrooms. Destination hotels, high-end event venues, corporate mixers, and more have explored our portable bathroom trailers and found exactly what they were looking for. The same was recently true for Matunuck Beach Properties. Learn about this collection of properties and their experience purchasing the perfect portable bathroom for their needs!

“Roy Carpenter's Beach is a community of summer cottages off Cards Pond Road in Matunuck, Rhode Island. The group of 377 cottages are spaced close together on numbered rows east and west of a path leading to the ocean. The community offers a unique, family oriented atmosphere. Most cottage owners live at the beach all summer and many cottages are passed down within their families, from one generation to the next.   To maintain our family atmosphere, no renting is allowed in our community.

The cottages were built after the Hurricane of 1938. The late Roy Carpenter started renting the land for daily parking and gradually included overnight stays by people with trailers and tents. The community eventually developed into cottages owned by individuals who pay yearly fees to lease the land. 

Today, the land is owned by the Thoresen family. Nancy Thoresen, the granddaughter of the late Roy Carpenter, along with her children, Rob and Christa, operate Matunuck Beach Properties.

Roy Carpenter's Beach is a 1/4 mile long stretch of seashore along the Atlantic ocean. Located on the south coast of Rhode Island, the beach is a wonderful retreat, whether it be a summer vacation or a weekend getaway, for the community of cottage owners throughout the summer. Beach-goers enjoy sunbathing, swimming and spectacular views of Block Island and Point Judith.

Matunuck Beach Properties provides many beach and property management services to the community and operates a store on the premises during the beach season.”

This property management company sees many visitors and potential buyers year round. These beachfront properties have been constructed with respect for the natural environment surrounding them. With this in mind, extra construction on the beach for a brick-and-mortar restroom was not ideal. A portable bathroom was the perfect solution, and they called us to browse options.

A Portable Bathroom Solution for Guests

Matunuck Beach Properties wanted a portable bathroom that was elegant enough to compliment the naturally upscale environment. They needed something large that could accommodate many guests, and something accessible for those with disabilities or larger families.

After hearing their needs, we suggested a custom made ADA +11 Station Oahu Series. This luxury portable bathroom is a specially built version of the ADA +10 Station Oahu Series, with that extra station for higher volume use. 

portable bathroom ada

Like all of our ADA units, this portable bathroom is California ADA-compliant, which meets the highest requirements for ADA access in the nation. Measuring 32 feet, this trailer is equipped with a 900 gallon waste tank and 225 gallon fresh water tank for high volume use.

The Oahu series features a two tone grey design and includes all of the amenities of a home bathroom. In the women’s suite, you’ll find five stalls with privacy walls, a double sink vanity, shatterproof mirror, and ample lighting. The men’s suite also features a similar double sink vanity and mirror, with three stalls and two standard urinals equipped with privacy walls. 

This unique restroom trailer rental is designed to allow the ADA restroom suite to lower to the ground with the touch of a button, making wheelchair access easy and the shorter ramp takes up less space. This unisex suite includes an accessible toilet, sink, framed mirror, and grab rails. The suite also allows for a 360 degree turning radius for the most convenient experience possible.

The entire unit also features air conditioning and heat strips in order to maintain a comfortable interior temperature no matter what outside weather may be like. These strips can easily increase or decrease the temperature of the unit when necessary, ensuring that guests have a comfortable experience.

Operations with the Smarter Restrooms App

As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of using portable toilets for rent with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each portable bathroom trailer unit comes with water saving flushable toilets, running water from sinks, and sometimes, showers and other amenities. This means that fresh water tank and waste tank levels require careful monitoring.

No need to do this math on your own any longer! The Smarter Restroom App sends the fleet managers alert notifications when waste and freshwater tank levels are 2⁄3 full or empty, causing the unit to be out of service shortly. This is sure to boost productivity, allowing your team to have easy access to the information they need to keep restroom rentals operating smoothly.

  1. All-In-One Control System

Nothing is more important than the experience of your guests. We want to ensure that every user has a comfortable experience in a climate-controlled unit with all the amenities of a brick-and-mortar restroom. This is an easy achievement with the app’s system operations control feature.

The app detects and controls shore power, interior climate temperatures, and up-to-date weather conditions, giving units winter protection from freezing temperatures and keeping things cool when hot. This ensures that restroom fleet managers stay updated from a remote location - they’ll know what changes are needed to the unit and when, which allows for a consistently pleasant restroom experience for guests.

The app also allows for geometric locating, allowing managers to see the exact locations of all portable bathroom trailers at all times.

  1. Offsite Unit Management

The most tasking part of operating a portable bathroom trailer fleet is basic management. Making the trip back and forth to one or many units takes up valuable time, which can lower efficient customer service. The app addresses this issue as well.

Managers have capabilities to remotely control lights, air conditioning, heating, water heaters, and trailer power. This means managers can operate more restroom trailers off-site, expand their operations, and provide superior service.

Overall, the Smarter Restrooms App was developed to allow businesses who use or own restroom rentals to manage them more effectively. The app allows the management team to get more done in less time, makes fleet operations easier in general, and saves valuable employee time. Now, with the app, portable bathroom trailer renters and owners can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor. 

Many of these companies are becoming more and more interested in restroom rentals at this time. With our inventory going in and out of the warehouse constantly, we want to ensure that the portable bathrooms we send out are clean and safe for use.

Our COVID-19 Cleaning Process

portable bathrooms

We recently partnered with Green Home Solutions, an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered cleaning service that specializes in bacteria disinfection. Learn about their company and cleaning process and order your restroom rentals with the confidence that the portable bathrooms coming your way are sanitized and ready for immediate use. 

The Green Home Solutions Process

The Green Home Solutions product, called Oceanic, killed 570 pathogen in under 10 minutes when tested by the EPA. It has successfully treated COVID-19 as well and is now the product used to disinfect our portable bathrooms.

 We are proud to partner with a small, locally-owned business that prioritizes effective disinfection without harsh chemicals. Learn a little bit about them:

“Russ Weldon founded Green Home Solutions and serves as the Chief Cultural Officer and Visionary of our indoor air quality company. With an entrepreneurial drive, Russ has been starting successful businesses since his teens. After selling his 450-store franchise in 2012, he was looking for a new opportunity. Green Home Solutions grew out of his desire to provide products that keep homes free from mold.

As Green Home Solutions grew, he realized this business was more than just a way to help other entrepreneurs achieve their dream of business ownership. It gave him a chance to have a positive impact on the planet today and for generations to come.

At Green Home Solutions, we don’t believe that fixing these problems means you have to introduce harsh chemicals into the environment or to your family, pets and home. We don’t use harsh chemicals. The health and safety of your family is always our goal. The products we use in our services are selected with that in mind.”

When we hired Green Home Solutions, they told us about their cleaning process. This is what you can expect every portable bathroom in our rental inventory to go through before shipping.

  1. The Green Home team sets up personal protection equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies
  2. The team puts on PPE prior to entering the portable bathrooms, including full mask, suit and gloves.
  3. Confirm that all people are out of the service area and ensure that no one enters while the trailer is being serviced.
  4. Once everyone is out of the service area, the team begins to wipe down all touch surfaces & high contact surfaces with GHS “Beyond Green All-Purpose Cleaner” including door, doorknobs, handles, seats, and sinks.
  5. Remove, contain and dispose of all cleaning materials (rags, towels, cloths).
  6. Spray all surfaces and contents with Oceanic via the Fogmaster sprayer.
  7. Allow a minimum of 2 hours after treatment prior to re-entry. Note – reentry time can be reduced with ventilation of the area after required dwell time. 

This hospital-grade technique ensures that all bacteria are removed from the portable bathrooms. After finishing the process, the rentals are ready for our clients. Rest assured, any portable bathrooms coming from us will be processed by the Green Home Solutions team and will not contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

Sanitized Portable Bathrooms for Rent

With all of our portable bathrooms going through this sanitation process, we are continuing business as usual to make sure that all essential businesses have the restrooms they need. We confirm that we do not get essential workers sick thanks to Green Home Solutions and we will continue to partner with them throughout the foreseeable future.
