How often does Sani Wrap need to be replaced?

12 volt rechargeable battery packs and/or 12 volt transformers.

How is Sani Wrap attached to the take-up spool?
Thread the Sani Wrap under and around the take-up spool, turning the spool toward you several revolutions.

What is the purpose of the razor blade?
The blade splits the Sani Wrap allowing it to pass between the seat "attachment plate" and around the take-up spools thus preventing reuse.

Can the blade cut the user?
No. It's completely concealed when the housing is in place.

How often does the blade need to be replaced?
Depending on the amount of traffic, approximately every six months.

If moisture builds up in the take-up side of the unit, where does it go?
There is a tray located on the bottom side of the Sani Seat which allows any excess liquid to drain through the hole at the base of the tray, directly into the bowl.

Does Sani Seat replace the regular toilet seat?
Yes. Sani Seat fits all standard toilets and is installed in the same way as a conventional seat. Standard fittings are included in each carton.

Does Sani Seat lift like a conventional toilet seat?
Yes. It functions exactly the same way.

What if a technical problem is experienced?
By following the instructions supplied with the Sani Seat, most technical problems can be easily solved. If the problem is more difficult and not able to be resolved by your maintenance personnel, call the service representative.

What material is the installation bracket made of?
Stainless steel.

What are the metal parts made of?
Stainless steel.

Can Sani Wrap slip off the seat?
No. It's in the form of a sleeve which fully encases the seat.

Can the seat break at the point of attachment?
Very unlikely. There is a steel plate inserted in the seat, giving it a very high resistance to stress.


How long does is take to change a roll of Sani Wrap?
20 to 30 seconds.

What happens if the Sani Seat breaks down, or if Sani Wrap runs out?
Sani Seat can be used as a regular toilet seat until the Sani Seat unit is repaired and/or a new roll of Sani Wrap is installed.

How will maintenance know how to repair the Sani Seat?
Through training by our staff and by following the instructions in the Operations Manual.

What happens if Sani Wrap is torn in its entirety?
Simply wave your hand over the sensor to feed the remainder of the Sani Wrap sleeve, then reload the roll.

What happens if someone discharges on the entire unit?
The chances of that are greatly reduced with Sani Seat because people will no longer hesitate to sit directly on the seat. If this should happen, however, clean the Sani Seat like any other conventional toilet seat.

How do I clean the Sani Seat?
To clean the Sani Seat, use a sponge or hand-towel dampened with household sanitizers, i.e., Lysol or Pine-Sol cleaner.

What if moisture is on the seat itself?
This will create undesirable friction. Remove Sani Wrap from seat, clean and dry seat completely, and then refeed the remaining roll of Sani Wrap.

How will maintenance personnel know when Sani Wrap is getting low?
The LED display will indicate how many seat covers are remaining on the roll.

What happens if urine gets inside Sani Seat?
Simply remove the cover and clean the housing using a household sanitizer.

Will an acid-based cleaner harm the ABS plastic?
Yes. If a strong acid is continually used, it will harm the plastic surface.We have personnel available for the continuous cleaning of our restrooms.

Why should we pay additional money for Sani Seat?
With Sani Seat the amount of personnel required to maintain restrooms can be drastically reduced, or their priorities can be redirected to perform other duties. Even in those restrooms that have a fulltime attendant, no one can guarantee a clean, sanitary seat every time. Now with Sani-Seat it is possible... simply by waving your hand.

Where can I obtain Sani-Seat and Sani Wrap?
From your local Sani Seat distributor or shop here.


Will any germs contained on the surface of the used roll of Sani Wrap contaminate the user?
No, for the following reasons: the used sleeve is wound up in a roll and any germs are confined in that roll. The used roll of Sani Wrap is enclosed in a separate, isolated chamber, to prevent the germs from migrating onto the seat and/or to the fresh roll of Sani Wrap.

Is Sani Seat protected by patents?
Yes. We have very strong patents including the United States and Canada!

Has Sani Seat been thoroughly tested prior to introduction to the U.S. market?

Is Sani Seat sterile?
