Further strengthening its position in the leisure market, Sanilfo UK – a leading designer and manufacturer of pumps, macerators and cubicles – has recently supplied Norfolk-based manufacturer of rustic shepherd huts, The English Shepherd Hut Co, with a series of Saniflo products making it possible for the hut manufacturer to offer a unique accommodation experience in the beautiful English countryside.
The portable units are suitable for weddings, festivals, campsites, offices, garden rooms and playrooms and are made from wood and corrugated iron offering every modern convenience.
The real differentiator between Shepherd Huts and most other portable accommodation is that these special units offer running water for all cooking and bathing needs and even toilets that flush rather than the chemical variety offered by most temporary accommodation, providing a luxurious experience.
Poachers Hut, for example, features all mod cons including bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens and seating space thanks to ingenious interior design that maximises every inch of available space.
The company specified the Sanicompact with integrated macerator from Saniflo. The ideal WC for compact spaces where mains drainage is unavailable, the Sanicompact has an automatic push-button flush connected directly to a water supply and needs no cistern. It also features a wash basin inlet so grey waste water can also be processed through the macerator if required. Waste is discharged via 32mm pipework either to a storage tank or to the nearest mains.
The Aquarius – a posh, portable toilet block for weddings and events – provides upmarket showering and WC facilities and is available for hire or sale and features Saniflo’s Saniwall allowing for modern, wall hung sanitaryware to be specified. The Saniwall is a built-in frame system with an integrated dual flush cistern and macerator pump. With two extra side inlets it can take waste from wash basin and a shower as well as the WC.
Craig Nield, owner of The English Shepherd Hut Co, says: “Saniflo products have enabled us to develop huts that do away with the need for chemical loos. Customers are happy to pay a bit extra for nice, clean-smelling bathroom facilities whether it is one of our accommodation huts or our bathroom blocks.
“They not only look nice, but are easy to use and offer home from home comfort. Our next range, The Neptune, will be launched in the very near future and is an upmarket loo block for events featuring Saniflo macerators. We’ve worked out the optimum size waste storage tank to ensure our products overcome the ever-present problem of over-flowing toilet facilities at festivals and events. We’re grateful to our plumber, Sam Weston, for his expertise, which has enabled us to develop a great range of Shepherds Huts.”
Ann Boardman, Customer Services and Marketing Manager of Saniflo UK, adds: “Seeing how The English Shepherd Hut Co is using Saniflo products with great acclaim is what Saniflo is all about. Such projects prove again just how versatile and valuable our products are at helping commercial and domestic customers alike achieve the bathroom, washroom, kitchen or utility rooms of their dreams.”
