General information

  • The squatting plate or latrine slab is a polypropylene modular component that fits on pit latrines, shallow or deep trench, to support access to sanitation services in humanitarian emergencies.
  • Depending on the design requirements, the removable cover to reduce odour and flies can be either an articulated hinged cover or a drop hole cover.
  • A pan/bowl or water-seal trap can be installed on the underside of the squatting plate, if required.
  • Fastening can be made by bolting or by means or other secure mechanism. This option is chosen when a connection to a septic tank or to a sewer network is possible or planned
  • One slab should be allowed for 50 people in the first phase of an emergency, but the number should gradually be reduced to the standard minimum of 20 people per latrine.
