Automated Toilet Units: Altersoft's Automated public toilet facilities provide an automated wash down system that washes the unit down with water sprays after a preset number of uses before becoming available for the next user. This system can reduce the number of cleaning visits and provides a safer and more pleasant environment for users. The Automated system also has electric door operation and can be set to lock the units up at night and open again at a preset time in the morning eliminating the need for security personnel. Automated units include a unique recessed sensor operated wash basin unit that includes touch free water. Voice messages and clear signage are also provided to assist users. With the Automated system, a large amount of statistical data is available and is also capable of being connected to a web based remote monitoring system.
Quality of the materials, components and operating systems for all of the IPtoilet facilities is a paramount consideration for the whole Altersoft team so any IPtoilet product, regardless of the level of amenity included, is constructed with the same quality and attention to detail that sets the standard for Altersoft product.
Safety of IPtoilet users is of paramount importance to Altersoft and this is particularly important in regard to the electronic systems in automated IPtoilet facilities. With 5 years' experience, Altersoft has developed an operating system that is both secure for users to ensure that they will not be disturbed during the use of the facility and also safe in the event that they become incapacitated whilst using the facility.

All IPtoilet facilities are designed to be easy to use for all members of the community with clear written instructions and voice messages to assist people to get the most from their intelligent public toilet experience.

All IPtoilets are made with materials that we have found to be particularly resistant to vandalism and graffiti. Ensuring that the units remain in good condition over the long term is an integral part in ensuring that the units are not vandalised or defaced and can provide an excellent service for the wider community.

Altersoft and its distributors are able to meet customer requirements from simply supplying the toilet facility directly to the site or depot or they can offer a full supply and installation service for the IPtoilet facilities. These services can include the following:
Altersoft can provide site plans for the location of the toilet facility including the relationship to boundaries, roads and the position of services. This plan can be incorporated as part of the building consent information for the particular site.
Building Consent Details:
Altersoft will normally provide a set of building consent drawings which includes floor plans, elevations, sections, foundations and services plans along with engineering calculations and producer statements for the structure.
Once consent is approved, Altersoft will normally be able to undertake all the site works including securing the site with security fencing and arranging the site clearance and excavation of the surface.
Altersoft will excavate the foundations, place the formwork and reinforcing steel and pour the foundations prior to the delivery of the unit.
Altersoft will normally arrange for subcontractors to run all the service connections from the various service supply or discharge points through to the point where the toilet will be located and terminate them just short of the facility.
Transport and Craneage:
Altersoft will normally arrange for the toilet unit to be transported to the site and for a suitable sized crane to be available to lift the toilet unit into its final position ensuring that it is plumb and level while the crane is on site.
Once the toilet is down on the foundations, it can be secured to the foundations as required. Great care has to be taken to ensure that the foundations are at the correct level to allow the paving to fall away from the entrance eliminating ponding or flooding inside the cubicle. The gradient of any paving to the unit is of critical importance for disabled users.
Connection of Services:
Once the toilet unit is in position, Altersoft will trench back under the unit to connect the services from the service hole in the service area through to the services just outside the toilet unit. It is important that there are no stub ups of services in position prior to the unit's arrival because it is impossible to get these to align correctly with the facility. It is more important that the services are only connected to the toilet unit once the toilet is in position on its foundations.
Altersoft will normally provide and install the paving around the toilet facility to match in with the surrounding environment as required by the designers.
Altersoft and its distributors would not normally become involved in extensive landscaping but minor grass planting and other site work like seats, drinking fountain, shelters and planters can be incorporated into the work required.
Commissioning: Altersoft will normally send an experienced representative to the site once all services are connected and operational to commission the toilet unit and hand it over to the customer.
Ongoing Support: Altersoft and their distributors will provide comprehensive ongoing support to the owner and can offer a range of different levels of service as required to ensure that the product remains in good condition over the life cycle.
