Installation Options of the GT 120 and GT 330 Systems
See below Installation Options (IO) for the GT Systems. Please note that IO 2) and IO 3) are usually utilised in developing nation aid or disaster relief due to their ability to be deployed quickly and with minimum fuss.
IO 1) ‘Traditional’ Below Floor (Split System) Installation
The standard way of installing the GT 120 and GT 330 systems is as a split system. The Chute at the top of the GT is adjustable from being flush with the container top to up to 200 - 300 mm above container level. This allows for a variety of below floor heights. An additional chute can be added, enabling it to adapt to any below floor space.
This is the option usually chosen for Australian domestic applications
IO 2) Floor Level Installation
This option makes the GT 120 ideally suited for rapid deployment in disaster aid - but also as a simple, quick and low-cost option for the developing world. The system can be set up very quickly as no excavation is required and installation is very uncomplicated. Typically, the system can be ready for use within minutes. By eliminating the need for a pedestal , pedestal costs, excavation and associated below floor installation costs are saved. The distance between step and seat is standard toilet height.
IO 3) Lower Than Floor Level Installation
If a small amount of excavation is not an issue, this option can be used for both the GT 120 and the higher capacity GT 330 system. A minimum 320 mm (540 mm for the GT 330) ‘step’ is required. The adjustable chute allows for up to 200 - 300 mm extra variance, catering for a variety of conditions. The wooden seat is 400 mm high – standard toilet seat height. Also suited for rapid deployment and a simple, quick and low - cost option for the developing world. The system can be set up very quickly as only minimal digging is required, and installation is very uncomplicated. Again pedestal costs and below floor installation costs are saved.
It's not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.
