Additional squatting slabs or slabs with pedestals can be purchased separately from the manufacturer.
Designer specified performance targets include the structure being lightweight and well ventilated in hot conditions, reusable over multiple pits, and modular to accommodate schools, hospitals or refugee camps.
Materials were chosen for the Mobilet toilet that were both hygienic and easy to clean.
Each Mobilet must be situated over a pit, which requires masonry in the construction of a stable platform for the structure to sit on.
