The Toilet that’s City-Approved and Well-Used

Reducing crime and waste is a priority that most cities have at the top of their list. But when you’re balancing demands from several different department staff, volunteers, and elected officials, it can be tricky to find a solution that satisfies everyone AND fits into your budget.

Lucky for you, you found The Portland Loo.

The Portland Loo was developed by Madden Fabrication with Portland City staff and officials. Together, we specifically designed it to prevent problems of other public restrooms, including cleanliness, crime, and upkeep.

So durable, it’s almost indestructible.

The heavy-gauge stainless steel wall panels are strong and yet lightweight. With a graffiti-proof coating, they’re easy to clean with a hose. All of the plumbing and building components are commonly used too, so they’re easy to replace or upgrade.

Promotes safety, while allowing for privacy.

There’s open grates at the bottom and top of the Loo, which allows law enforcement or security personnel to see and hear how many people are inside. Yet each occupant has the privacy where it matters in order to use the facility without worry.

Discourages lingering and crime inside.

The hand-washing feature is on the exterior, which deters anyone from lingering too long inside the restroom, and prevents any clothing or body washing inside. This also creates efficiency, allowing more people to use it in any given time period.

An elegant design that’s also inexpensive.

The minimalistic approach resulted in a sleek and modern design, which also means there isn’t unnecessary components that add to the cost. And the solar-panels on the roof allow the unit to be powered entirely by solar power off-grid, or in combination with low level volt power.

Proven to help the City of Portland.

The oldest Loo in Portland is 10 years old, is still in use, and looks new! The proven success of the Loo has earned the city its first patent, so Portland also gets a percent of the profit each time one is sold to another city or organization.

There’s no doubt that this is your safest choice for a freestanding public restroom.

    We could have paid for the Portland Loo in what we’re spending for repairs and maintenance on the existing facility. Having seen the Portland Loos that are in Nanaimo and in Bastion Square in Victoria and some other locations, had council made the decision five or six years ago to purchase this, we probably could […]

    The others couldn’t ensure the safety we needed. One of the key things in regard to downtown washroom facilities that you’re seeing throughout North America is the ability for sight lines, ensuring the safety of the people using the washroom but also ensuring that if people are inside the washroom and are unconscious, people can […]

    You can see enough to help prevent crime and keep the place clean. You can see feet and determine if there is more than one person in there for crime prevention reasons,” Broad said. “No water source inside, so they can’t bathe in there. The place to clean their hands is outside. Reading seeks state […]
