Designer Notes

The John Wheelchair Accessible Outhouse is a building that was designed at the request of some parks departments looking for an alternative to traditional wood buildings. The “Wheelchair Accessible ” Version, as the name implies, is a larger version of our “Jumbo” version and meets the ADA requirements in the US for wheelchair accessibility.

The John addresses many of the issues typically associated with outdoor latrine buildings in semi-remote locations-transportation and handling, assembly, and the use of materials that require minimal if no maintenance over several years in a wide range of diverse environments. The John meets and exceeds these expectations while providing a very comfortable and memorable user experience. Strategically designed as a modular system, the individual components can be easily carried into semi-remote locations and be put together with minimal tools at a fraction of the traditional wood and concrete alternatives. The building is made from sturdy lightweight powder coated aluminum components, making it resistant to corrosion. The tongue-in-groove recycled plastic lumber slats will not rot or absorb moisture and can be sprayed with bleach or disinfectant without damage. After cleaning, excess water simply drains out the sides from the raised walls. They fit seamlessly into channels with only a few hidden fasteners, also making the unit theft and tamper proof. Lack of lighting normally associated with these types of structures has also been addressed with a translucent one-piece roof. It provides plenty of light but it does not compromise its strength and acts as an effective barrier against sun, wind and rain. The one-piece roof structure caps the entire unit providing ample protection from the elements and locks the whole structure together making it extremely solid. With most of the products we develop, the naming of it usually has a meaning. The name John, although seemingly quite applicable for the application, is actually named after the CEO and President of Wishbone. It is the only product, of the dozens that we have, where his name actually worked.
