It doesn’t matter if a building project is large or small; when it comes time to buying bathroom partitions, lead time is the number one concern you’ll have. As construction moves towards completion day, unforeseen problems can be par for the course as you keep logistical tabs on the many moving parts of the construction process. While bathroom partitions systems may be just a small part of the big picture, they can also potentially be a source for long lead times. The economy is in an upswing at this time, and while that’s great for businesses, it could hamper your construction schedule as product orders at factories pile up and shipments are delayed.

As we work with different factories to get you the best lead times, we’ll help you choose the right material and mounting style that work within your budget. We’ll look at your drawings and we’ll also do drawings for you so you’ll know exactly what it is that you need so that you can get it shipped as soon as possible.
Several major considerations in customizing your restroom partitions to suit your specific needs are partition material, mounting configuration, and partition layout.
Stainless Steel – A high-end choice for when design aesthetic and image matter and longevity is important. Class A facilities and fine restaurants are good candidates for this material. Powder Coated Steel – A good choice for lower-budget projects, where moisture resistance guarantees durability.
Solid Phenolic/Compact Laminate (CL) – An expensive product that nonetheless has a low replacement factor. This partition is very popular among healthcare facilities where infection control is important. This is because it is made of a very hard and highly antibacterial material.
High-Pressure Laminate (HPL) – A high-density, material that can work well with any range of projects in terms of budget. Therefore, they’re a good choice for budget-conscious projects. They demonstrate high resistance to impact and graffiti as well.
Solid Plastic – A good “green” material that is also highly durable and low-maintenance. Its resistance to scratches and dents, graffiti, moisture, and corrosion make them a great choice for high-traffic facilities, particularly those that experience high-humidity conditions.
Floor-Anchored – Only one point of contact is present where the pilasters meet the floor, making it easier to install than overhead-braced systems. It’s better for low-traffic and low-vandalism environments. A concrete floor is necessary for its installation.
Overhead-Braced – A very common style that’s sturdy and low-cost as well. The partial-height pilasters connect to a head-rail that ties back to the walls of the restroom facility.
Floor-to-Ceiling – Pilasters reach from fully from the floor to the ceiling, giving this system two points of contact. The resulting sturdiness can withstand high-traffic, high-vandalism circumstances.
Ceiling-Hung – Partitions are hung from one point of contact at their top. Their lack of pilasters that reach the floor gives a floating, contemporary appearance to the restroom partitions. Cleaning the restroom facility is much more efficient without the pilasters, but underlying structural support is necessary for its installation.
Alcove – A single toilet stall can be nestled in this layout, where restroom walls make up three sides of the compartment. A panel with a door to one side makes up the fourth wall.
Corner – Two restroom walls make either corner of your restroom stall. This layout can include one or multiple restroom partitions.
Between Walls – This layout utilizes one or more restroom stalls that span fully from one restroom wall to the other.
Free Standing – This layout only uses the restroom facility wall as its back boundary, and it can also consist of one or multiple stalls. This can be seen in male public restroom facilities, where the free-standing stall(s) are installed amid urinals.
