We call it SSP-value:  Style gives Status and with status comes Prestige. We call it SSP-value. Traditional latrines can now get SSP value in in a few minutes.

Easy progress monitoring: Just keep a record of the number of SaniPlast Privé that leaves the warehouse. Even a stolen platform will end up improving a latrine.

Accelerated implementation: Plastic sanplats facilitates accelerated implementation with easy transport and simple installation. The status of a plastic top-finish plastic sanplat is much higher than a concrete one and stimulates demand. It has a better value as incentive than a concrete one (because of higher status).

Transport made easy: because of its light weight 2.0 kg and handy dimensions 50×60 cm. Five or more SaniPlast Privé can easily be transported by one woman, 10 or more be put on the back of a bicycle, 20 or more in the back of a car hundreds on a pickup, about one thousand on a medium sized lorry etc. And with no breakages.

Ideal for sanitation marketing: No quality control and simple monitoring. The risk of poor workmanship or poor concrete is eliminated. The number of latrines built can easily be estimated based on the number of plastic SanPlats distributed. SaniPlast Privé contains no component or material that can be used for other purposes (like cement and reinforcement).

Lowest cost: With SaniPlast Privé the overhead costs for transport, trainings supervision and monitoring are minimal. Add the SSP value to that and we have a winner!

Better hygiene: Foot operation of the lid eliminates 100% the hand contamination on a significant route of disease transmission.
