Thetford Europe impressed the jury of the “caravanning design award: innovations for new mobility 2012/2013”. The company received one of the coveted awards from a jury, consisting of design and trade experts.

50 exhibitors of the 51st CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF entered a total of 92 products into the competition. With its exceptional design, the Porta Potti Excellence considerably distinguished itself from similar drafts. The experts were delighted and honoured the extraordinary design achievement in form and function of the Porta Potti Excellence with the “caravanning design award: innovations for new mobility”.

Manufacturers, designers, and marketing decision-makers came together for the festive awards presentation on the grounds of the Messe Düsseldorf, in order to celebrate the highlight of this year’s competition.

Impeccable design, Innovative features, and unparalleled user comfort

The Porta Potti Excellence differs not only in its unique design from any other portable toilet, but it also distinguishes itself with its home-like toilet shape and seating height.

In combination with a bigger bowl size, this allows also elderly people to use the toilet comfortably. In addition, the user benefits from a well-designed control panel with a pump, water-fill unit, and water-level indicator, nicely integrated into the toilet. Also integrated in the Excellence is a toilet roll holder, so toilet paper is always within arm’s reach of the user.

Last but not least, a level indicator for both the waste-holding tank and the flush-water tank is standard. This means no more unpleasant surprises for the user, as the control panel tells them in time to empty the waste holding tank or to re-fill the flush-water tank.

The release of the Porta Potti Excellence is somewhat of a design renaissance for the 50-year-old icon. This icon, the original Porta Potti was invented by Thetford. Thetford is a leading supplier of mobile sanitary systems and absorption fridges, external service doors and a wide assortment of toilet care articles for carefree use in recreational and domestic situations.

The Porta Potti Excellence range is available for purchase at all leading Camping and Caravanning retailers as well as a large network of independent stores.
