Sanisphère is today the leading supplier of public toilets in ski resorts, high-altitude sites and mountain huts. Many years of experience, R&D and innovation have enabled us to develop successful and proven technologies.
We have been part of the French actors of mountain development for several years as a member of the Mountain Cluster, as a participant in the DSF congresses, and by having a partnership with the ANMSM. Moreover, the export beyond the peaks of the Alps, the Pyrenees, the Massif Central and the Jura is emerging day by day.
We found the right techniques for all situations, even extreme ones.
Accessible remote sites
When it is a question of equipping an isolated site, without networks but nevertheless accessible by earthmoving machines, we propose a prefabricated toilet building, as in the plain. This represents the majority of the sites we carry out.
We are regularly solicited, in particular by the Swiss Alpine Clubs, to create integrated toilets inside the refuges.
They are planned at the conception of the refuge, or within the framework of a rehabilitation, by building an extension to the refuge dedicated to these toilets. The technical rooms are then dimensioned in such a way that the compost produced never has to be emptied, in the interest of operational peace of mind and eco-responsibility (The eternal toilets).
Isolated sites not accessible
Many other refuges or mountain pastures, accessible only on foot or by helicopter, have no toilets.
In 2013, within our innovation unit, we developed a heliportable model, easy to install and inexpensive compared to our traditional toilet buildings: the SANILIGHT. It is ideal for the summits of mountain resort slopes, hiking trails, climbing spots or small mountain huts and huts.
When it is not possible to bring earth-moving equipment to the installation site, and the expected traffic is high, the solution is to construct a concrete ring beam to replace the buried portion of the building. This increases the storage capacity tenfold to eliminate the need for emptying. This is the technique we invented to absorb the very high tourist numbers on the GR 20 in Corsica: the SANITRECK.
