Woshbox – when nature calls on location

  • 26th Nov 2012

The one thing we all dread when going to a film shoot in a remote location or large event is what the ablutions are going to be like. Even though all our studios have toilet facilities we may are expecting hundreds of people so we’ve called in WOSHBOX who specialise in providing top quality toilets and service to the film and events industry. Their units are clean, easy to transport, operate off solar power and have a special chemical formula that keeps them smelling fresh, even after frequent use.

WOSHBOX units are light and easy to transport and our factory in Cape Town is conveniently located in Woodstock, with easy access to the freeway. Being solar-powered means that the units run efficiently without needing to be charged or pumped out while you’re busy on a job. The units are clean and our efficient team ensures that they are kept in tip-top shape.

Their toilets work harder for longer, needing fewer call-outs and less chemistry. The units are a popular choice amongst event managers who appreciate our creative design flair and the guarantee that our units can cope with frequent use. The toilet’s hands-free operation and eco-friendly chemicals, make it a more hygienic and pleasant smelling option.

There are also additional options like
