Description

An accessible version of the WooWooLoo GT Standard cabin – designed to provide users with limited mobility and/or wheelchair users access to an off-grid compost toilet. Featuring a long access ramp, wide door and plenty of space to manoeuvre a wheelchair inside the cabin. Please note that the cabin is supplied ‘untreated’.

The WooWooLoo GT Accessible cabin is made in Finland to the same high standard as the WooWooLoo GT Standard and Double Cabins, but with wheelchair or less able-bodied users in mind. The cabin should be used with the WooWoo GT compost toilet starter kit. It includes the internal bench seat (with space to the side for wheelchair users) and a rear cut-out to enable either the WooWoo GT 120 or GT 330 to be slid in/out for service and maintenance.

The stylish and functional Scandinavian design includes a striking circular window in the door, a shallow window to the rear, and a large pent roof to keep the worst of the rain and weather away from the structure, meaning it will be less prone to rot and decay.

The bulk of the construction is 20mm, Finnish Spruce, with a little bit of Finnish Pine (used in the door and floor joists). The family-owned manufacturer started in business in 1936 and only uses local Finnish timbers, grown and harvested as sustainably as possible. They are part of the local climate action network and work hard to reduce the amount of waste produced from the manufacturing process, with what is left being used to heat the factory.

The joists are pressure treated/impregnated pine to resist rot and decay. All other wood is untreated and will require a suitable coating such as clear, stained or a suitable paint (we highly recommend OSMO products).

How big is it?

Externally, the building has a width of 2m and a depth of 2.15m not including the roof overhang.

The cubicle has an overall internal width of 1.9m and a depth of 2m. The internal height slopes from 2.3m at the front down to just under 2.1 at the rear, presenting a large, airy space for the occupant.

The ramp is in two sections, each is 2 metres long and 1 metre wide. The angled section can be placed to either side or the front to suit your location.

WooWoo GT Accessible Cabin dimension drawings

What do you have to do?

The cabin is delivered kerbside on an oversized pallet as a ‘flat pack’. The packaged dimensions are approx. 1150 mm deep, 2260 mm long, 900 mm height and a weight of around 800 kg.

We estimate that full assembly will take around 2 days for two people, depending on the ground conditions and extent of any groundwork required. The cabin should be assembled on concrete blocks (such as lightweight cinder blocks – not included) as a foundation to keep it off the ground and to reduce the possibility of damp and rot. Details for the foundation are available in the installation manual. The foundation, in conjunction with the large roof, means water will be kept well away from the structure, making it last longer than your typical garden ‘shed’. Please note that to provide sufficient clearance for the 330-litre container under the opening, the foundation blocks will need to be at least 50cm tall.

The access ramp may require some modifications and concrete blocks depending on the ground conditions and any slopes or features that may be present.

WooWoo does offer an installation service, priced according to your location. Please get in contact if you would like a quotation for installation.

The exterior wood of the WooWoo GT Cabin will require treatment to protect it from the harmful effects of UV radiation and to help prevent mould and mildew. Depending on your taste, you can choose from clear, various natural wood colours, as well as solid colours to blend in or contrast with the surroundings. You can leave the interior as natural wood, or decorate it to suit!

Is Planning Permission Required?

In the UK, under ‘permitted development’, you are usually allowed to have a pent-roof building with a maximum roof height of up to 3 metres, provided the structure is more than 2 metres away from your boundary. However, certain areas may have additional planning constraints, (such as national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty, world heritage sites or conservation areas), which will mean planning permission will be required.

If you are unsure, always seek advice from your planning department – it’s your responsibility to ensure you comply with local and national planning regulations.

What is and isn’t included with the delivery?

The building is delivered on an oversized pallet as a kerbside delivery. Depending on your location, you may need to assist with offloading the components from the delivery vehicle. The weight is approximately 800kg. For more details on pallet deliveries, please see delivery methods.

The price includes all wall, floor, roof and door parts, together with appropriate screws and nails. You will need to purchase a length of 110mm pipe to take the vent upwards to the wind cowl.

If you choose the option with the WooWoo GT 120 or GT 330, those will be delivered around the same time.

Delivery to a non-UK address? No Problem!

Since Brexit, the process of selling to non-UK customers (including those in Ireland!) has changed but we don’t want our customers to pay more so we are offering to refund your customs duties and admin fees.

VAT generally evens itself out
You will find that our price is reduced when selling to non-UK countries. This is because we don’t charge UK VAT (20%) if a customer wants their toilet sent to an address outside the UK.

Instead, the customer will be requested to pay VAT on the import once the package enters its destination country. Across Europe the VAT rate is usually also somewhere around 20% so the saving made by not paying UK VAT is generally evened out by having to then pay local VAT when the package enters its destination country.

Customs duty/admin fees
You may also be charged customs duty and in some cases even an admin fee when the package crosses the border. If this happens, make sure you keep your receipt so you can forward it to us. When we receive your receipt, we will refund these extra fees back to your account.

In short…
Our non-UK based customers shouldn’t have to pay more for their products than our customers in the UK.

If you’re unsure about anything, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team.
