Company philosophyWe aim for robust simplicity in design and operation, and quality in manufacture. Our toilets are designed to function well in the UK climate and do not rely on evaporation of urine. We are committed to appropriate solutions and will not knowingly sell you a product unless we believe that it is the best solution for your situation based on the available information.
Materials SourcingWe use high quality materials for durability and repairability. Our toilet vaults are manufactured from glass reinforced concrete and have an 80 year design life. Timber buildings are clad with locally sourced, naturally durable Western Red Cedar. Our toilet pedestals are stainless steel. Cladding on metal buildings has a 30 year manufacturer's guarantee.
Energy EfficiencyAlmost all our toilets are passively vented and do not require any mains services. Both directors have worked as energy consultants and NatSol's work premises have been substantially renovated for energy efficiency.
