SATO 203

SATO stool with trap door

Not a fan of squatting? No problem! The western-style sit stool toilet provides a comfortable and pleasant toilet experience for households without access to a sewerage system. 

    • Allows comfortable sitting position for all family members, from the young to the elderly 
    • Provides better access for those with reduced mobility 
    • Minimizes odour for enhanced user experience 
    • Saves water. The pan uses less than one litre per flush –  20% less than conventional toilet pans
    • Opening and closing of trap door at will with just a pull on the pull string 
    • Visually appealing – its bright colour and unique award-winning design is a welcome addition to any direct pit 
    • Easy to install. Suitable for new construction or can be mounted over existing toilet hole and secured to floor using nails or concrete. 
    • Suitable for use in households, school, workplace or community toilets 
    • Shuts out unpleasant view into dark pit and human waste 
    • Increased safety. Limited outlet aperture helps to prevent young children accidental falling into pits
    • Sanitation for a lifetime – our ‘trap door’ mechanism has been tested to last the equivalent of 100 years of use by a household of five    
Key features
  • Convenient pull string feature allows opening and closing of door at will 
  • Unique self-closing counterweighted ‘trap door’ is designed to create an air-tight seal that closes off pit latrines from the open air which minimizes odours.  
  • The trap door reduces the transmission of preventable diseases from insects that come into contact with human waste  
  • Optimal counterweight action lets waste and flush water pass through, but otherwise stays closed 
  • Constructed from durable plastic, it is easy to clean with regular off the shelf products
